Oh my god this is really bad I just remembered!!!

Dixie Chopper has to change ALL their logos!
They're not the world's fastest lawn mower anymore.

I can't believe they slept through that, even I knew about the Altoz.

GMLC told me he is taking a break from LS for a while when I chatted with him about a month ago.

Retro- who cares what you live in? It's what you have in the yard ain't it?

As long as you keep treating people the way you treat them here on LS, you'll be very successful. If you were closer, you'd get all my business.

I have always liked the looks of this machine. Is the foot area as small/tight as it looks in your pics? Also, aren't those casters some sort of flex fork deal?

Do you know if the deck is entirely made from 7 gauge steel, or is the top made from 10 gauge like several others are?

GMLC on a break from L.S!!!!!!!!

It's not fair that Tommy Clifton caused so much trouble as to make people need a break.

Did you hear that he is back in some other threads?

No! Say it isn't so

Who is he this time? I was told he was on another forum claiming to be making a huge deal with yet another brand manu. I guess BS'ing is like crack.

It seems like they put the horse in front of the cart as far as their dealer network goes. They have almost no dealers! I think they could have done a better job of getting that set up before their roll out. It sounds like they have a nice product, but I couldn't buy one around here even if I wanted too.

BTW, $6k for a quartz watch???!! Come on man, that's IWC, Omega, or Panerai money. You could probably get a decent, used Jaeger LeCoultre for that too. To each his own!
Do keep us posted on the mower, and please post more pics

lol I was being sarcastic about being pimped out to mow on this mower.... I felt like it was a good day to look like the dude in the altoz video with all my fresh designer duds on.. And I have a watch fetish, if you know me you know I didn't pay anyway near that to any of those things I had on, in fact I try to find deals on anything I get...lol. I do get more complements with this watch than any other I have ever worn. I have a Breitling, a submariner, and among others and this minute and 12 guage Oakley catch a lot of my higher end customers eyes when they come in, expecially the real estate agents and bankers... I guess they think the other watches are fakes or something...
