    Manufacturers for Backpack Blowers and Walk Behind Blowers made Cupholders right on the side of the machine. Nice Hot Chocolate or Hot Coffee on a Cold Fall Day.. or Cold Gatorade/Water in the Spring/Summer. Do you guys think this would be a good idea??

    i think it would be a way to charge more for a useless option. please cease and desist before they read your post and we're paying for this crap on next years models :) *trucewhiteflag*

    i think a nice option, something that you pay extra for if you want but don't have to add, would be a cooler. like those 12v coolers that would keep a beverage cold while mowing. i know ZTR users would have a hard time using this, but this is one way that a tractor is better, only one hand required to use.

    Extra weight, extra money and more crap to break. No thanks, JMO

    Why not add a remote while at it.

    As if I haven't spilled enough soda in my pickup in the past, all I need is a way to spill soda on myself...
