    We need to see pictures of the new stuff. In years past we had pages of pictures by now. What's taking you guys so long?

    I saw a poster/sign restricting cameras at the EXPO without specific permission of the manufacturer involved. But I know someone will beat the system.

    Really, I wonder if that's something new? Years and years worth of pics are one here. I don't see the harm if your not a competitive manufacturer stealing design ideas.

    There was a sign... but I saw plenty of pictures being taken.
    I was at the Grasshopper area outside talking to a pretty nice rep. but when he walked away another GH Rep walked up and asked me very nicely to stop taking pictures.

    Here's what I got before I put my cheap digital camera away.

    BTW, if the planes were any closer, you could almost see the rivets on the body! ;)

    I also wanted to see the NEW 12' Super Lawn Truck. It was very nice, but a 14' version would have been a little better for my uses, and the ramp was pretty steep!!

    Their larger 16', crew cab unit was a little too big for what I need, and the side door was a real PIA to get in and out of the box quickly... the stairs are pretty shallow.
    The ramp was very nice, and I'd NEVER want to trip coming out of the box. The "anti-slip" coating on the ramp is so aggressive, you'd go thru your work pants, let alone your skin, in a heart beat!!!

    It's your vision!! ha ha ha... actually, you are looking at their "edger" which is actually pretty cool!
    The right side tire is just barely noticeable beyond the edger.
