    If you could, what one thing would you change or improve on your mower if you were the one designing the mower??? For me, it would be the cover on top of the deck on my Toro WB. Seems like grass is constantly getting underneath the cover. There has to be a better way.

    While I dont have 3 of them, the one that I do have is about as perfect as they come!

    On edit.....

    Move the PTO engagement switch on the Lazer so that my "manly" calves don't accidentally switch the blades off at FULL rpm's!!!

    Something to "cover" the throttle control on my Viper ZTR. Everytime I go around a shrub,citrus tree,any branches that are low will kick the throttle back down to idle speed.
    Too many safety switches! (I know,OSHA says we have to have em'.)

    The placement of the height adjustment bolts on my exmark. Other than that, I love my metro.

    If I win the lottery I'll hire people to do my lawn.

    I would make it a Z so that I would be sitting instead of standing.

    I know exactly what you mean, my 52" Pro Line was the same way......Had to clean it everyday.

    I got an Exmark now....so for the record,

    I can't think of anything I would change.

    I would change the foot platform on my Toro z-master. It lifts up to gain access to the belts/center spindle grease zerk, but it lifts the wrong way! It wont even go all the way back because the hieght adjust foot pedal is in the way. Expecialy when the mower is on the z-stand (this is the jack on the front of this mower). The dang thing keeps crackin me on the head. At the least I would install one of those gas shocks to hold it up. Other than that its a pretty great mower.
