    Was real close to going this year. Glad I didn't. Will have to plow snow today most likely.

    That being said...Over the years there were multiple threads of pictures and info on all the new equipment.

    Haven't heard a word or say a picture of anything except that 30" push mower of Toro's.

    Anything new ZTR wise from the big manufacturers???


    Fire up those cameras/smart phones!!!

    Exmark has the 60"Vantage. Toro and Exmark are beginning to push efi engines on standers, full size walks and some riders. John Deere has the efi on the 925 a. Can't speak for the other manufacturers.

    i tried to demo the Toro aerator and had trouble turning it around. Is there some special technique? Seems the turfco is easier to operate.

    Talked to the guys with walker. They have a new 52" rear discharge deck, as well as the super b.10 mph , 60 or 74 inch. Great ride as well.
