    It's my first year. I was in the food industry and have been to hundreds of food shows, but this looks significantly larger.

    Yep, I wound up staying at the casino and the only people here seem to be landscapers. I waited too long to book a room and everything in Louisville was taken but the high dollar hotels and crack houses.

    Most interesting things I have seen at GIE this year

    1) Ground Logic is coming out with a z turn spread/spray unit to compete with Z Spray

    2) Gravely's tweaked machines look really nice with same great deck

    3) LT Rich's new Jr 36 is a slick machine with lots of capacity onboard

    4) New entry in the Z mower market...pics to follow

    5) Not new but Dixie Chopper's dual hydro WB (old BOP mower) is a really nice nimble machine if they would put a little better deck on it, on a fair price point I would buy in a heartbeat.

    Pics to follow when I get back home.

    Yeah, Spartan, thx!

    The price points of their machines are several grand less than competitors.

    Took a quick look at their display. Not much variety, just the zero turn I think. Couldn't find them out in the demo area. Did anyone get pricing on their mowers?

    They have some vauge pricing on their website. The mowers look good, in a jacked up F250 kinda way, but not sure on performance.
