    would be like Lawn Solutions but with the controls of the BOP Dually. Wouldn't that be sweet?

    That would be nice but I personally don't do enough aeration to afford that machine lol

    That is how the controls work on our aerator already. Angled for comfort and push / pull to go back and forth.

    I had a mower about 10 years ago with this setup and loved it. Don't know why there aren't more like this...but I'm sure they are coming. Actually the reason there aren't more like this is because it make it difficult to jump curbs with this setup over a pistol grip in a walk-behind.

    WBs are used a lot for commercial work where there are lots of islands...and the "BOP Dually" setup would not be ideal for jumping curbs all day.

    Actually, I was refering to the walk-behind. I own one and like it very much. I would like it better with the BOP controls.:waving:

    We are currently building up inventory for spring on the new 2010 model.

    The new design make it even eaiser and novice to operate. I'll post a video shortly.

    We haven't made the kits yet...but we do it all the time in our shop. Cost will be around $200 for the upgrade. It requires a couple of holes to be drilled which we make a temple for.

    It takes about 2-hours to do. We converted all of our current stock to the new style.
