Lets see some more pics!!!

Im trying to upload mine lol, taking a very long time here. The briggs stand was thrilled i wanted to take lots of pictures. The kohler place asked me to stop taking pictures politely lol. oh well.

I have some big pics in here of the bad boy stuff too. I have a lot of pictures and probably still could take another few hundred. Anyone else here today? Im trying to find someone that will be there saturday at 1pm so just by a 1 in 23,493th chance that my name is called for the Ferris is2000z giveaway, i can actually win it still, since winner has to be present they say after we both fill out their survey form :/

Awesome place though, tomorrow the outdoor part should be open to test out all the neat stuff.

Im with the g/f here so the list is gonna be pretty much close to zilch lol. I did get some very nice mower deck wheel replacements, packed with ball bearings and all so they dont vibrate, wobble, break or fall off like most do :/ They're small so i can put em in the car :)

I figured youd have to take the Ferris mower with you or come back to pickup anything large if you won it, but im sure they will either ship it or Ferris would probably just send a machine out to your most local dealer. My 01 Grand Prix can only pull about a thousand pounds so unless its that super duper light weight 100lb zero turn, i wont be drivin nothing home :dancing:

Its hard to get "good" pictures in there. Some vendors dont like pictures taken at all and then although the lights "seem" bright, theyre really not, the cameras without the flash on take a long open shutter picture so you have to stay very still to make it at all clear.

Very Nice pics on the link!

Thanks, these are a bit better, i hate the sony cameras so took a lot with the Nikon today, this should start off at the thumbnail page of pics where the last link left off... Friday at the show.

On a side note, the main company i came to see their other stuff Ferris/Simplicity and try a couple Snapper PRO machines out, basically same as ferris just no suspension, they decided they were not setting up their outdoor demo areas?

There are hundreds of huge vendors out there, CAT, JD, Ariens, Gravely, Wright, Toro, Exmark etc... all demoing hundreds of machines.

What did Simplicity and the rest of the Briggs & Stratton group do? They literally have areas that are 200ft by 300ft wide, empty with a tent and a few props that wernt finished :(

What a poor choice for the company. They also never had any reps ask me if i had any questions or anything. I took dozens of pictures at simplicity, snapper and ferris and i dont think i talked to ONE rep ever. Ive also didnt ever see any reps showing or explaining any products to any customers..

Yet, John Deere, Cat and Gravely reps were beyond excellent to name a few. They explained in detail how to operate the machines, what to be careful of, optional accessories and how to operate them. I demoed a few Gravely mowers and the rep went into detail about weights, speeds and uses for various equipment, in simple terms, they had a passion behind their products.

Im all for the Briggs group brand of products as thats mainly what i own but was pretty un-impressed with their lack of representation to market their awesome products.


Theres a bunch of me driving some stuff around, if i look retarted, im not, its just me concentrating on 400 new controls on various machines while trying to appear as if i knew what i was doing :p

Thanks guys, I did like the Cat 297C track steer, of course at 70k it probably should be nice. The JD ones were nice too. I didnt drive any JD tractors but do like the inside of the 4720 cab tractor.

The JD Ztrack mowers were nice, i drove a 27hp gas i think and a yanmar diesel 997 machine. I really like the Gravely machines too, they have a diesel 27hp 3 cylinder thats the same thats in my Simplicity legacy tractor and their stander mowers, the 34" actually was an awesome machine especially for its size.d

Not nearly as good as Ramairfreak98ss though...

This is my first time posting pics, and I am not even at my own computer since I am doing this from the casino so it might not work out (it looks like I got it, but I am a crappy photographer, I even forgot to check the date on my stupid camera!).

Okay I just tried it and found out I can only upload five pics at a time and I got a bunch so I shall try to upload more tommorrow.

I thought for sure I had more, I am sure I took a pic of Fluid films booth, since they were nice enough to give me a free can of their product. I have to wait until I get back home to check my camera, I can't connect my camera directly to the computer I am using now.

Yes, it's an annual event held around this time. I definitely want to make it one of these years. Looks like my idea of heaven :)

The guy that was there with the backpack strap system for the adjustible support with a hedge trimmer was really neat. It sure looked kinda weird but if i trimmed longer periods of time more often i would sure look into one. Your arms or shoulders are always worn out after trimming hedges up high and all.

It was my first time going down. I'll be going back again next year for sure!! It was a bummer though as a lot of the manufacturers would'nt let you snap pics.

Which ones bothered you? I asked the briggs guys and theyre like go ahead take all you want. The kohler lady ran over pretty fast and i wasnt even up close to the engines as you can see in my pictures. I did see some asian guys taking closeups of a lot of different equipment with macro lens equipped cameras, they just looked like they were getting in trouble lol.:laugh:
