You guys might sell more of the new Trimstar if you cared to put actual pictures and info on the new machine on your website. There are some businesses here grossing $100K a year that manage to properly update their websites.

And the Torque numbers on the old trimstar spec page have been wrong for years now. Makes me wonder what the attention to detail is on the machines themselves.

The new TrimStar is on our new website that will be public soon, sorry for the delay.
We are selling them as fast as they come off the production line, in fact their is a waiting list for them.
As to the specs on the old sheet, sorry, mistakes do happen.
What would a misprint on a piece of literature have to do with the attention to detail on the actual mower?

The point is, if a corporation can't be bothered to get information on their website correct, especially after it's been wrong for years now, what are the odds they're paying attention to other details? The effort required to make the change on the website is minute compared to the effort to make the machines better. If you guys can't do the easy thing, why should be we encouraged that you'll fix other problems?

A monkey can take a few pics of a new machine and post them and the usual specs on a webpage. Dozens of lawnsite members here do it themselves. The fact that Hustler doesn't consider this reflects on their company tells me all I need to know about the attitudes there.

Suit yourself. I prefer not to do business with people who think "good enough" is ok and "we'll get around to it eventually" is the standard. You might consider asking some of the folks at Chrysler and GM how that attitude worked out for them.

Ok.
Thank you for your thoughts and concerns.
I will make sure the people that need to read this, do.
Good enough is not ok for Hustler nor is we'll get around to it eventually, I dont know why you think this is the case.
