LOL. One of my guys desperately wanted a drink holder. So, when we got our Ferris, part of the deal was a drink holder. The first day my guy used it with a cup of coffee (with a lid), it was covered in grass and dirt. The coffee inside was okay, but you couldn't get to it! Can't drink it through the hole in the cover, and when you take the cover off, dirt falls into it. I guess it adds an earthy flavor, though.
He tried it one more time, then gave up and never used it again.
I don't have one on my Walker but I'd love one. Got a couple of lawns that take 2 or more hours to do and having a bottle of water with me and a good place to put it would be great. I try and hold it or jam it somewhere but it never seems to stay in place.
I bought my new Lazer late last fall. I'm definitely going to try the cup holder out this summer. I'll probably have to freeze the bottle close to the top so it doesn't all melt before I'm halfway finished with the lawn.
I love the cup holders I probably drink 4-8 Snapple ice teas a day in the summer and it is sweet to be able to take a drink rather then going off the lawn to go back to the cooler. The drinks dont stay cold long but then it doesnt take long to drink one when its hot out.
I dont have a cup holder on my Z. But I do carry a 52 ounce insulated drink cup with me on the larger jobs. When the wind is blowing it gets covered with grass , but its sealed except for the straw. But hell I'm eating grass on those windy days anyway. At least with a drink I can wash it down.
