12VDC Power Point on your ZTR---why don't the mfr's do it?

    We own a Scag Turf Tiger. Great machine but no power point.

    Why don't ZTR mfr's put them on their machines? So many things you could plug into them like a mobile phone, ipod, strobe light, etc. Could it be that they are afraid of the liability police (slip and fall lawyers :hammerhead:) and don't want to have a distraction on-board?

    Check back 30 years ago. Gravely had them ( cig lighters ) on their 4-wheel tractors. Any item that came with that type plug could be used. Now days, the electrical systems of a mower already have more load than the ones did back then. Electric clutches draw quite a bit of current and most engines only put out about 20 amps max.
