    Well, I would have to say that it depends on the dealer. How well the dealer knows you. Your 15 right? If I was a dealer I wouldn't let you demo one of my mowers.

    Ask you dealer, if they won't, take you mom, dad, uncle, brother or whoever.

    I would say, yes. Because otherwise your parents would be held responsible if you damamged the mower.

    Better be careful -- if you have a mower on the streets in NY and you dont have a license you can be charged for Driving w/o A License!!

    Ive seen guys takin the mower to the corner store to buy beer while drunk cause they didnt want to drive and get the DWI.

    BTW I agree with Bob that you will need to have your parents or someone of age get the demo for you. In NYS you have to be 18 to run commercial mowing equipment outside your home.

    LOL, I was joking about him being 15 with no license. Only an idiot would drive a mower on the road.
