What is the best innovation ever?

So what has been the best innovation in the lawn mowing industry ever? Not counting the lawn mower? Hows bout the zero turn rider? Back pack blowers? Diesel engines in mowers? Cheaper labor? I was wondering. This is an industry filled with ideas and tactics just used over and over again. What has been the foundations for this industry?

I love my turfeq sidewinder bedshaper. I did 3 customers this morning in an hour and a half, and made more than mowing all day long. It is expensive, but so were commercial mowers at several thousand dollars in the late 80s, now look what we pay!
