    Well the answer to my earlier thread about a ZTR bower I found on You Tube has been answered. I saw it at GIE/EXPO in the Billy Goat inside booth. This updated video was running http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6UHHFEayu0 The outside booth had it on an Exmark and a Scag. It blows HARD and works better than the other video showed. The rotation is fast but the guy I spoke to in there said it’s so you can turn you ZTR 180 and have the discharge in position by the time you are ready to start mowing again. He said it would take an hour of running to get the hang of it. The downside? It’s only offered in the Northeast this Fall.

    This was by far the coolest thing I saw at GIE/EXPO

    just picked one up today we prob wont start leaf clean up until next week looks like its going to work good but has no where near the power of the little wonder 13hp walk behind but i think it will be useful on very large properties also check with your dealer again i was at the expo with mine and asked him to order one when we got back at first he couldnt but a few days later found out he would be able to get them
