We are here for the second time, this year and last. The show appears to be of a very Low Quality compared to last years. Did anyone else go from on here and what is your response ? We attended Thurs. and Friday both. Appears attendence is way down and people are talking about the poor quality of this years show.:confused:

I wish they would move it from year to year. I love going to shows and looking at new toys, but this is a little far for me to drive.

Mark you calendar for 29-31 Oct 2009 at the same location in Louisville. Not trying to start a feud...just curious to know what you guys were expecting that you did not see at the show. I purchased a Bradley grinder, Lawnwheels deck wheels, Fred Marvin tree trimming tools, Magna Matic balancer, Jungle Jack and had an interesting conversation with Scott from the Ferris indoor booth. Really wish I had a red ZTR dealer in this area. $750 was my budget and I blew that by only three bucks. Plenty of demos outside kept us busy for three hours and two more hours to walk past every booth inside. The new Kawasaki trimmers were light weight, the Stihl display convinced me buy another chainsaw and the brats with Root Beer at the Kohler booth were good as usual. Forgot about the waffle cone ice cream.

Sounds like you're an easy sell, Grassman.

Did any of you stop by the Fluid Film booth? We thought it was an excellent show. Attendance may have been down a bit, but overall their was a lot of interest and enthusiasm.

It's my dream come true...All kinds of lawn equipment and great food.
