I dont understand

we all sit here and complain or fight for our favorite brand, and no one ever wins my question is how come no company has ever gone out and purchased other companies equipment and then send them all to a independent lab for testing and really see who has the best mower it would be cool if lawnsite could put this together so it really is independent

Brands test other brands equipment in house at their own facilites. When I was at the Dixie Chopper factory I saw them tearring apart a new Hustler and when I was at the Toro testing and engineering facility they were also testing other brands of equipment.

That is what I mean why not take those machines when done and send them to a lab to be tested against each other and find out which one is the best

There really is no "best" mower or anything else for that matter. Each individual has different requirements. No 2 are exactly the same.
