    I wanted to show all of hte Lawnsite members that we are serious about building our own Tedbrakes mower, here are some pictures of our new laser going in yesterday, in our new manufacturing facility. The techs from Cincinnati will be here all next week setting it up and getting it running. Designs for the new mower are almost complete. You are going to see alot of different features and smarter ways of building the best zero turn mower. The most unique part is that we will manufacture them and ship them anywhere in the country to our customers, and will have excellent service videos and will be doing any warranty work which we don't think there will be hardly any with our new designs, through UPS or FEDEX. I know this will raise some eyebrows, but for the future, we think this is the route to go. No dealers, no reps, no distributors, no company owned trucks, lowest overhead ever, you get the best mower made, at the best price, with the same customer service that Everything Attachments customers have come to love. Granted this is not for everyone, if you can't change a light bulb, this will probably not be a mower for you, but for the rest of you, I think you are going to love it. We are putting a lot of expensive parts on our mowers because we can without the overhead, such as K&N air filters (which can be washed out for life), Oberg oil filters for hydrostats, engine oil, which have a stainless steel screen that can be washed out instead of replaced. We are making these mowers to need the least amount of common replacement parts as possible, including using all american made bearings, and over spec-ing what are common problems on other brands of mowers. My BadBoy mower rep Chris used to laugh at the thought of me building my own mower, now let's see who laughs.BadBoy cut us off from being one of their dealers because we sold too many mowers all across the country, so now we will simply build our own.
    :laugh:

    Good luck in your venture! I hope you can get it up and going sooner rather than later.


    Do you have several color choices that will be available or one? Can you describe the overall basic designs and features that will be incorporated into the final machine here, or is that giving too much away right now. I looked through the other thread, but that is a few years old, so I assume things may have changed since that one was current here.

    Also, will there be diesel options? Thanks.

    Im not really impressed with Bad Boy either. This however has my interest peaked i cant wait to see what you are able to churn out. I love the idea of low overhead and better parts. Ive always worked on my own equipment so something like this would be right up my alley. Though i am concerned about parts availability and timely delivery. Down the road you could create a distribution network but until then how will you handle these issues?

    This set up sounds like it's right up my alley since I have an "equipped" shop. I'm very much looking forward to seeing the new mower!
    Please keep us posted!

    Don't worry, the best thing I learned from being a BadBoy dealer for 4 years is what not to do

    I really like new machine's with shiny paint. How thick of a piece of steel can that thing cut ? That's gotta be so much nicer to use than the oxy-acetylene cutting table's. I'll bet it wasn't cheap either.
