Not only has my next door nieghbor asked about Emark mowers, but my girl friend's father has also, both of which use regular tractors from Home Depot and Sears.

My neighbor hasn't bought one yet, but my girl friend's father went out that weekend and bought one. I'm sure the advertisements isn't hurting eaither company. Just my .02 cents. Later all!
