I think 3 peices of flat steel ( a mulch kit) for $300 about takes the cake for me. I bought the steel locally for $8 and 1 hour later I was mulching. Some things like trimmers for $300 bucks are a great deal and others insane.

A ZTR $10,000.00 You can buy a new car for less than that

How about the $45 "hitches" for the ZTRs? Better yet, how about a bottle of fungicide or specialized herbicide that costs between $90 and $130 for a 2 oz. bottle?

I can think of an area that oodles of money is spent and most products are made to be sold and not used. With the exception of a couple new poisons and old reliable traps a lot of money is blown off trying to get rid of moles.

Agree or disagree ?

And these are good reasons some of your bigger LCO's are removing lawn maintenance all together. Not enough money is being made. Yes sure you can buy a ZTR for $10,000 but you have to also include schedule maintenance, and someone to operate it, were talking lots of money for a $60.00 lawn job.
