    Anyone use the cup holders on their mowers? Does anyone have a top on their mower for shade in the heat of the summer? The reason I ask is my TT didn't come with a cup holder and I was thinking of getting one and the top of my head is minus a little hair now> the reason for the roof. Also I bought a Shindaiwa 260 trimmer the other week and it starts and runs real good. Are those a discontinued model? The dealer had 2 more and I was thinking of going back and get another one for $274.00+tax. David

    I use my cup holder all the time. I dont see many people with the sun shades on there mowers, I think I would take mine off, as soon as I go under a tree. The T260 is discontinued model I think. I would go grab the other 2 also, I used to run them till the dealer stocked the newer model with the catalyst, not nearly as much power

    I put my favorite beverage in my cup holder to mow my lawn and it got full of dirt.

    Really? I would think it would be hard for dirt to get in the top of a long neck bottle.:drinkup:

    Cup holder is used to have a bottle of ant killer stuff. If you are mowing for several hours get this new backpack with water contrainer in it and tube.
