    It's yet another good idea with mediocre execution and no money behind it probably to improve it to proper standards. If some of these people who run out and patent these good ideas would instead SELL them to real companies with proper resources they would make more money I bet. Licensing a wildly popular product makes you more money than building and selling a niche one.

    If the people currently making them are what you are talking about....that ain't a real company worthy of the name.

    That wasn't fair, actually. I meant a major corporation with money to market it properly and have a proper dealer network, and resources to fix the items that were needing improvement over the years. Right now, I can go to their website and see only one photo, no closeups. Specs are given in a chart, but they're not complete (height? Length?). No mulching kit is available apparently in an age when mulching is coming into its own, etc. Technology today lets a small business set up a website as good as theirs in 20 minutes. Surely they can do better.
