I'm not planning on spending much time at the GIE+ portion of the expo tomorrow. I'm going to focus more on the HNA, an HNA class, and the HNA outdoor area. But after all that, we do plan to go back outside to the GIE+ outdoor demo. area and ride some more mowers (cuz that was fun!). So I'll see what I can find out if I pass an Exmark or Toro booth either on the way or outside. I'm interested in the 30s as well.

Actually I'd be surprised I'd they released any info now cause they'd be afraid no one would by any more of this yrs model.

I see Robo-mower. One thing I don't like is how everything is covered up. Particularly the engine. The fact is that it still has a internal combustion engine and it will still break down and need servicing done. The more open the engine is, the easier it is to work on. They get a huge fail for this.

Spoke with an Exmark rep about the 30's. No comment on the larger engine question but did say work is being done on the components of the transmission to improve hill side performance.

GMLC I'm surprised that you like these mowers because it looks to me like they're using a lot of parts that are mainly straight lines/angles.

I remember your main dislike about Bad Boys was that "they use too many straight lines/angles, and not enough curves" to have (what you referred to as) "a good fit and finish". BB also use "hanger bars" instead of just chains, which has been one of your main topics lately.

I'm just bustin' your chops a little.....don't want to start any arguments.....I really don't! I just couldn't let this odd change of opinion go without mention!
