    Well, well. Last week Gary from Better Outdoor Products the maker of the Quick 36 called me and ask if I could come over to their plant in Advance, NC early this week. He told me he had something he wanted to show me and get my input on as a professional LCO. Well, we were slammed so I wasn't able to actually make the short 30 minute drive from here in Greensboro over there until late this afternoon.

    My o' my though was it worth it! Better has something REALLY COOL in the works and I have seen it! Their comp that are worried about the Quick 36 esp the new one with the 16HP KAW before........well now they REALLY will have something to worry about! :clapping:

    Nope not hardly. I as I have for 27 years own a LCO. I just happened to write the review of the Quick 36 for TURF Magazine and was very impressed by their produc and that is also how I met Better and because I own a large company that handles nearly 600 cares of turf a week they ask my opinion as a LCO that runs a ton of machines on their machine.

    Yeah and they'll probably have another price increase. when i bought my mine it was $200 dollars less than it is now for the same model. (only a year ago) A 10% increase! To cover the expense of new design and effort i'll bet they go up again. Soon they will be up to Big brand prices. Then what will stand them apart?

    that 10% increase is probably just the amount they are paying in extra for materials shipping and steel increases. If you look everyone is up and about that much.

    When I was in Niagara Falls N.Y., I was fortunate enough to find a LCO using a quick 36. I used it for 5 minutes (he had a hand held palm and I showed him my website) and fell in love. They sell them here in Canada but after 2 dealers who didn't know their face from their zxy, I decided to buy another product. Shame though, I really liked the quick 36.
