I believe I just had a great idea. Let me start off by saying, I'm sure we all love this site, and Turf Magazine etc., but lets face the facts they are all sponsored by the manufactures of our equipment, and there are so many questions as to what is the best mower? So how about it. We all own these mowers so how about we form an independent group of us mower owners, get together all on the same day, with our mowers, and lets put them side by side. Use similar/same class mowers, on the same grass, with the same type blades etc., and have an independent panel grade the quality of cut. Let various operators judge them on ease of operation, toughness, ergonomics, and have real mechanics grade them on ease of maintenance etc. How does this sound to yall. I'm in Eastern NC, and can get access to a large field owned by a church that is only kept up by it's members and I'm sure would love to get a free mowing. I'm just thinking we could do it on a Sunday afternoon so it doesn't interfere with work/mowing, and also give those a chance who want to participate. When it's done we can post the results, and photos. A real test of the equipment. What do yall think? Anyone want to participate. I'll use my brand new Great Dane ZTR with 25 HP and 61" Deck.
