    Jim @ TURF magazine here.

    Now I'm looking for an experienced cutter in the Charlotte, NC area to do a field test of a Great Dane Super Sufer (for publication in the magazine).

    It's not difficult. The dealer is in Monroe. You use it on the job for a couple of weeks and either (1) write a review of what you did and how the unit performed or (2) I'll send you a form to fill out and my editors will turn your answers into the field test. We pay for field tests. Any takers?

    (Oh, by the way, if you don't have a free subscription to TURF, would you please sign up at our web site? The button is at the top of the lawnsite page. I'm really trying to increase the number of LCOs we reach. Thanks)

    Jim,

    I know this post is for down south but if you ever need an experienced cutter in New England, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    We're in northern Vermont ... and there sure isn't any grass to cut here ... won't be until May.

    Jim,

    Let me know if anything comes up for Ohio regarding the new generation of Super Surfers. We now run a SS and Chariot along with some Scags. Could do an article on the improvements to the SS over our version if there are any. Since JD bought GD all I've had are problems getting parts. I think that JD will close out GD since they now have their very own green SS.

    Jim, I bought the JD 667 Quik-Trak. They are very similar in design. If you dont find anyone, you can always use me and my Quik-Trak. I posted a thread on here about my stander that gathered some attention for a while. Let me know. JD 667 Quik Trak

    Any supporters of me doing a field test for Turf mag and my Quik Trak?

    I've started a list of folks from various places when field tests come up. The reason this one has to be in the Charlotte, NC area is become Great Dane really wants this particular dealership to be involved because they're good at organizing things.

    Any takers in the Charlotte area?

    Hi Jim,
    If you're looking for a test pilot for anything, gimme a shout. I'm in Central NH., and work residential, commercial, and municipal. Also do field mowing with my tractor and rear mower.

    Monroe has exploded like Mooresville in the last couple of years. You shouldn't have any trouble finding someone.

    Maybe Monroe exploded and there aren't any active LCOs in the area? I'll check in Monday ... if no one on lawnsite is in the Charlotte, NC area to do this Great Dane Super Surfer field test ... I'll contact the company and have them find another dealer who will cooperate.

    Meantime ... you have a field test report on your own equipment? Bring it on. Just email it to me jkendrick@turfmagazine.com

    That would be great!
