    ...and in this case...maybe not. Picked up my new TTHP 48/19 today and I showed my father, looks at it, say's "do u ride or walk behind it". I said, "walk behind it". So he looks and says "how much did u spend?" I say, "$6200.00". He asks how much for a rider and I say $10,000 Then it looked like he was going to flip out . Knowing what he's thinking I say..."what did u think I'm going to buy? I cut 65 lawns a week which is 2 years worth for the average homeowner.....in one week." Then he suggests I go out to sears and buy a rider for a couple thousand and said I should get a" year or two" out of it. I ended the conversation there and walked away lol.

    Later he asked me what make it was, I said Exmark and he says, "never heard of that brand." I say "that's because its commercial".
