    A plus Bob, I am starting to think that no one on this board owns one. Every time this topic comes up, no one has any ownership input. I hope we hear something soon.

    BTW, have you ever tested the Turfco?

    Yes at gie last fall.After hearing the hype on here about the t3000 I wanted to try it.I own 2 turf-co aerators that I love no major problems ever.Word of advice always turn them off before removing leaves from the tines they will pull a plug from your hand(OUCH THAT HURT)!!!After running it in the small demo area(I ran it like I was making an application)I know I could do that small area with my Z-SRAY intermediate faster ,easier.I know there is a learning curve and you could do that small area easily .But the t3000 was just to awkward to me.Plus it just seemed small to me I'm 6 ft 300lbs. just more comfy on my Z.Plus like somebody else posted on here you do hit yourself in the ding ding!:laugh:

    The steering wheel is for driving not leaning on and you can always move the knob to another position so your Ding Ding won't get abused. Or maybe take it off if you want to. I have hundreds of hours on the T 3000 and have yet to hit my Ding Ding and I am 6 foot 250 lbs. But of course I know how to drive one. That is the key guys. learning the unit and you cannot do that in 10 minutes in a 40 foot by 40 foot booth. It takes a day or so and you can be an expert on the T 3000.

    Just call them and have them bring over a Demo unit. That is what everyone wants us to do. Then they get unhappy that we cannot even thought we have been trying to make as many as we can. Minneapolis is a long way from most of the US so it takes a bit of effort. But small companies like Ground Logic and Turfco have some advantages. They remember who they sell to and that is important.

    I think I would opt to not take it off. I'd rather leave my Ding Ding on and have it get abused, than take it off to not get abused...:laugh::dancing::laugh: (just havin' fun)
