    Ok lets pretend that you could just wish something to be a certain way on a walk behind, what would you do to it?
    Like different controls, a Flex Deck, striping kits, OCDC, lot better catcher system, etc, however you want it, what you would like to see in a walk behind? Thanks,

    Hmmmm I just do not think that would be very safe... You COULD tape down your safety handles, but you still should hold on to it. Unless you like the idea of surfing behind a mower and possibly getting flung over the handlebars with machine still moving and blades still spinning at 18,000 ft. per second! :eek: :eek: :cry:
    Any other ideas? Think of things that would make walk behind operation quicker, easier, with more comfort, or higher productivity, better, etc. just anything even if it does not seem practical.
    Thanks

    What would you do with a GPS? Just curious as I don't have one and dont' realize the full potential of one.
    Thanks

    I guess you could track your employees if you have multiple crews working.

    Maybe so you can track the machine if it gets stolen?

    OK, yea I can see the good in that :)
    Other ideas? Gas shocks on a sulky for smoother ride maybe? Lights? Cup holder?

    Easier way to change blades...maybe like some sort of "quick release/change" system.

    I use a cordless 1/2" Impact Wrench when I do ours, but it's still a pain in the a**
