    Not sure what to think about this year's show at the MO. lawn and garden show I was dissapointed to say the least. No variety in mowers at all and was just a waste of money to go with really nothing to look at. I guess this show is getting like some of the others it is loosing it's apeal or at least to me. The only thing new at the show was the Hustler XR7 mower and the Exmark Navigator that was it. And a lot of the other brands of mowers who are normally there were not there. If you plan on going do not waste your time and money!

    Dear Green King you wrote this when the show closed in 25 minutes late night and honestly the BIG SHOWS are in St. Louis which is this coming weekend I believe and Kansas City. The Springfield show is a small one, I really think you need to go to one of the big ones if you don't like this one. Almost every one around has Lawn and Garden show this month in the different counties to let people see what is out there.

    I'm not sure mowergal has the correct date or not, but the show is held in the dome & the Americenter (sp). It is a BIG one. I'v been to it 2 times & if St. Louis was closer I'd go again

    Reason I asked was because I looked up the St. Louis lawn and garden show and it was in March. Here is the info.

    You're wasting your time going to ^that^show, if you think theres going to be a lot of commercial lawn equipment, etc. This is a homeowner-type show put on by the regional home builders.....
