  1. Air Conditioning for your walk behind<p>A rainy day garage project by lawrence stone<p><br>Go down the auto zone or whatever and buy a 6”<br>fixed fan and mount the fan to the dashboard of<br>your walk behind. <p>Also buy a cup holder that will hold a spray bottle mist<br>device that used to hold a hair care product that now contains<br>cold water.<p>Also take a trip to your local hardware superstore and look in<br>the seasonal dept. for one of those umbrellas that clamp to a<br>lawn chair and the handle of a toro WB. <p>I can use the umbrella for those long days in the saddle mowing<br>the athletic fields. <p>This fan setup with the aid of a battery powered ultrasonic bug<br>repellent and some 6-12 eliminate those pesky flying insects<br>when you mow especially early in the morning.<br>

    Must be another one of those rainy days over there in PA if you have time to think this stuff up. Maybe you could patent it!!

    While I have seen some large Toro mowers with air conditioned enclosed cabs, I have never thought of a walk behind with air.<p>How about this idea. Buy one of those vynal cab enclosures made for walk behind snow blowers, and mount it to your walk behind. A roof top air contitioner unit from an RV or such mounted on the top blowing down...<p>This project may take more than one rainy day.<p><p><font size="1">Edited by: jaclawn

    OK HOW ABOUT RADIO DIALS BUILT INTO THE HAND CONTROLS, OR MATBE GELLY SEATS ALONG WITH GELLY GRIPS FOR COMFORT.<p>MAYBE HEATED SEATS FOR THE LATE FALL TOO AND A FULL 4 WHEEL SUSPENSION ON ALL 4 WHEELS FOR ADDED COMFORT.
