    nobody likes my blade idea what about joystick controls right at the end of your arm rest, with a thumb pto switch that would be sweet!

    That would be sweet. But thats just more electronics to go wrong and would probebly be to expensive to make. But good thinking. I would like somthing that keeps my pepsi cold when im mowing. I mean, the cup holders nice, but i think if there was some sort of cooler, i would definitally buy it.

    Here is a mower that has the joy stick operation. I don't think the PTO switch is on the stick, but just the same. I can't say if they are a true commercial quality mower though.

    Snapper already tried this without the pto switch. Just like any new idea it wasn't recieved well. I know a couple people that have them and love them.

    I first tried a joystick on a Snapper Commercial ZTR at a trade show way back in 89 or 90. I liked it but it never caught on and I heard the mower cut like crap.
