Meaning he's brainwashed them thinking that way. Go back 3 yrs and people were talking Badboy was going to take over the industry. Don't hear much about them or even see them on trailers.

I think there is some confusion on someone who does honest reviews on many brands vs someone who only pushes one brand.

As well as some of the others mentioned above.

For their equipment knowledge and explanations as well as taking the time to use pictures to back up their statements. For me I like the people who also post pictures vs. someone who is constantly posting but never puts their money where their mouth is so to speak, be it equipment, vehicle/trailer set ups, advertising ideas. It helps legitimize their comments for me anyway, as well as provide motivation.

Man crush reviews vs married to a mower review is the difference. One can't give a decent review without long term hrs on one. Then it's only for the region the mower is in.

There are a lot of great guys on here that share a wealth of information. This is going into my third year, and without a lot of your direct help, or indirect help from reading past posts I don't think id be doing as well as I am. I respect all of you, even if we virtually fist fight in the politics section.

I agree. I have a 3000 hour and 1200 hour review going. As well as many smaller on going reviews. Things like cut quality dont need thousands of hours to evaluate. I also list all the turf types I cut with pics.

Need a season of cutting to have a decent review on cut. Spring growth, morning dew, mid summer drought, fall clean up, after fert growth, and different weeds over the season. Add the fact of different cut heights and pitches to figure out what works best a season is much needed.

Again I agree and post such pics in my reviews. I will also add weather conditions. I mow rain or shine and comment on these conditions as well. Have you read any of my reviews? All your concerns are covered. Accept in my most recent review of the Scag SWZT which will continue next season.

Wow GMLC!!! I never knew that you conducted such biased and incomplete reviews!!!!!!

I wonder why SO many people read them and comment on how helpful they are??

That's so weird, ALL of those people must be lying to you.
