    what i meant was keep the prices high enough so homeowners don't start buying them and cutting their own lawns and firing all of us in this industry. homeowners are lazy but anyone can sit on the porch and work a radio controlled mower while drinking their favorite beverage. that will be the end of all of our jobs/careers.

    Is the mowing deck a rear discharge? How wide? How many blades? Anything unique about the engine that is working at steep angles for extended periods of time (lubrication)?
