    Hey,

    Went yesterday and it was a pretty good show, some exciting new stuff. The Bobcats new Zero turn walk behind controls were one of my favorits. Unfortunatly the pics I got were blurry but I will post them anyways. Also really liked the new echo trimmers, the orange looks awsome, there light and very well priced. Anyone else go?

    Hey,

    I didn't talk to him since im not really in it for a Z but ive heard they are decent, bit of a learning curve. I dont know of any dealers on Southern Ontario and Parts availability would worrie me. Other then that they look kind of nifty. Apparently CUB is coming out with something similar, you can do a zeroturn at full speed without tearing the turf.

    Cheers

    Hey again....the owner/designer told me that its much easier to drive its like hopping out of your car into another one, the training time to teach employees is a couple hours. i was also told the dealers are being hunted down now but rite now, its going to be arctic....where ever they are lol, and parts he said they have been out in europe and in the states, and hes never had to replace a green part lol...the only thing that gets me is the kohler engine.... but i really liked the look of them and the color was amazing lol

    Cheers

    I'm not an LCO but I've owned a Gizmow since last summer. An LCO friend of mine has used it several times (he wanted to try it) and has put one on his short list to consider when it's time to replace his current mowers (all Bobcats). Don't know if that info helps or not, but so far our Gizmow experience is good. We recently purchased a home that sits on a wooded 4 acre lot - all mowed between the trees so I expect to have an idea if the Gizmow was a wise choice this summer.
