    aways seen better by cars on the road, plus you can

    Always good to be as safe as you can. Seems like an excellent idea.

    In my state if you spend enough time on the road to need a reflector that size then you are also supposed to have a transport license plate. It is a good idea and makes the mower highly visable though.

    We put up safety cones when our trucks are on the roadside unloading equipment. We also put our advertising signs up when we hit the jobsite and take them down when we leave.
  6. Don't they make those cones with a small sign attached to the top of the cone?

    A decal guy can make decals with your name on phone # to affix to the

    You also could cover up the mfg name on your mower and place a decal with YOUR name and phone # also.

    Toro walkbehinds have lots of room for signs on the gas tank.

    with our mowers getting faster and faster, it won't be long before the signs we may add will say SLOWER TRAFFIC KEEP RIGHT

    Racerdave, I like your idea. :laugh:

    I saw a sign on the back of a street sweeper that would probably be a good one for a ZTR. It said, "Caution, this vehicle makes frequent U turns".

    That's a good idea Eric. Do you think Dixie would replace their "Why run like a Deere when you can fly with a Chopper" bumper sticker?
