Don Woods from Lawnsite just came by then kindly hooked us up with the R&D guys from Ferris. They had never heard of us. Going to go talk to them in depth about them shortly.

I'm just glad the people here aren't as hard on us as some have been here on lawnsite. But, most had valued points to help us improve our design and that was why we started posting here.

LOL. Yes you do! Wish I could beam a mower with some brakes on it to everyone. This is a concept that you almost have to try yourself to see the true benefit.

Manufacturer Interest -

Just wanted to post an update on how things went today. Our main mission when we came to the Expo was for the chance to show them to a few manufacturers that hopefully showed interest. Today I spoke with the owner of Bad Boy, Engineers from John Deere, Dixie Chopper, Grasshopper, Toro, Hustler, Gravely, Walker, Parker and so many more.

There was more interest there from the Manufacturers than I expected. You could tell the Operators that had slid down a hill before. They stopped and watched a lot of the videos then shared their personal stories with me. The ones that mow on flat ground . . . just looked, didn't understand, and walked on.

Day One was exciting, but tomorrow is calling for rain so most of the outdoor people will be joining us on the inside.

good, hope all this effort will pan out for you as i think it is a great idea and implemented well by you and your team. i still think you should offer it as an aftermarket kit if manufactorers dont pick it up

I agree with grass, if they don't pick it up sell it as a kit. If they do want to pick it up make sure you don't get screwed in the process. You got patents on this thing right?

I think the expo is going to give you all the exposure you need and more. Do you have an after market kit ready to go or are you holding off on that until you hear from the big guys? Good work and I hope all goes well.

I'm at college in Bowling Green right now and I can back up any and all claims of the amount of rain fall we've got in KY. They're calling for rain/storms tomorrow and Sat. so the indoor traffic will increase for you a good bit.
