    I saw an older man on a Cub Cadet ZTR yesterday. I think that they sell those at the Home Depot. Looks like they are catching on to what works.

    yeah the older folks around here use them too. but they would never withstand the abuse that an LCO would put on a mower. the plastic would fall right off...

    Yup.... While at Sears yesterday a sales rep was trying to convince a home owner into getting a Sears ZTR... I did a double take and couldn't believe Sears made one.

    The Craftsman zero turn is made for them by Husqvarna in their plant in North Carolina. This is like the stuff they sell at Home Depot. This is not their commercial stuff that is made in Nebraska.

    I think these compaines are the problem, I don't see Rigid trying to dump sewer cleaning machines down homeowners throats as I have seen lawn equipment do....I got a ad in the mail for Hustler equiment, cheap easy to use, homeowners cut your yard time in half etc....Cub as well, flyer last week showing all crap they have, call your local dealer//no payment until 2006.....homeowner gets stuck with something they don't need......they just want!! :)
