When I’m mowing I'm constantly thinking of improvements that I would like to see on current ZTR's that would benefit us. Improvements that would help us be more efficient and productive in this line of work. Compared to the auto industry and other industries, with the technology available today the advancement in mower technology seems to be lagging far behind. A few small tweaks on being made but nothing major. I admit that each company is adding their latest improvements but there is no mower on the market that stands head and shoulders above the rest. Why is this? Here are a few things I would be willing to pay for without question of cost. I'm sure there are many more. Please add yours to the list. 1. Electric or Hydraulic flip up deck, full 90 degrees to clean under deck and change blades. 2. Under side of deck coated from manufacturer with some type of material that nothing would stick to and also resist abrasion when cutting sandy conditions. 3. Speedometer and tachometer, also power band indicator showing optional range to be most fuel efficient and to show max speed utilizing power of motor without overloading. This could be done using different colored lights to show optimum power range. 4. Reduce noise level significantly. 5. Seat totally isolated from the shock of bumps and rough terrain. 6. Complete 4 wheel independent suspension, superior to what's available today. 7. Eliminate grease zerks by using all sealed bearings. 8. Push button hydraulic deck lift that could be used continuously, not just to quickly override an obstacle. To move deck from lowest to highest position and hold it during operation. How much would you be willing pay for the improvements that you would like to see? Would you pay $20K or $25K or what would be your limit? With the ingenuity and progress that has happened in America in recent years I don't see these ideas as being unreasonable or unrealistic. We've been from the bottom of the ocean to the moon and everywhere in between, because someone had a vision that it could be done. Maybe someone who has some interest in our ideas who has the ability and financial backing to pursue these ideas will happen to read this and be interested in designing a new mower or improving what's available today. I look forward to others ideas and opinions.
