Lots of equipment manufactures watch this site and I think its time to give them a few suggestions. One issue that I feel is in dire need addressing is the need for alternative fuel options installed in mowers and trucks. Landscapers use an ample amount of gas and with gas rising to three dollars during the summer, we as an industry should push the equipment manufactures to create mowers, trucks, trimmers, etc. with alternative fuel engines in them. I dont want to wait for the all the oil to dry up to act. Another issue is noise. Im pretty sure that my customers dont like having to be disrupted because this loud mower is mowing in their or next to their house. I would love to operate a mower quietly without ear protection safely. Other features that would be appealing on lawn mowers would be a deck that has a special solution that prevents grass from sticking to the mower, an electronic deck lift, and maybe someday, a commercial robotic mower that practically eliminates a companys labor cost. Please reply with your ideas.
