Mower company looking for dealers in Georgia

MOULTRIE — Visitors to the Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition may be hard pressed not to take notice of the Bad Boy mowers and multi-terrain vehicle (MTV) dealer space.

The large inflatable bulldog logo of Bad Boy looms over the surrounding exhibits, and Territory Sales Manager for Georgia Shane White said that is for a reason. Bad Boy is a culture in itself, he said, from its color and logo to its Bad Boy girl.

White said 2009 is the company’s third year at Expo, and its dealer space has grown each year. It started as a a single booth in 2007 to having four booths in 2009 to show its growing line of riding mowers and MTVs.

The company, based in Batesville, Ark., has seen growing interest in bringing its products to Georgia, White said. The need for growth of its Expo dealer space shows its popularity is growing each year.

“The demand is growing and growing for our products here,” White said.

Although there are no dealers currently in Moultrie, White said he is actively seeking dealers willing to carry Bad Boy products throughout Georgia. At Wednesday’s Expo, White was in the process of bringing Bad Boy to a Valdosta area dealer.

White said Bad Boy offers riding mowers ranging in price from $2,999 to large diesel mowers at $12,500, with its biggest sellers being commercial grade mowers. It also manufactures fully electric MTVs — the first company to do so. They are also producing low speed vehicles that can be licensed for use on roadways.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
