        Well I accept Jack D.'s compliments as it seems as though he needs to cloak his compliments with criticism. With regards to the allegations of sub-standardism....I reply....

        to point 1
        1) Safety feature hinders performance and should be removed (rookie mistake)

        The only rookie mistake here would be the complete removal of safety system. I realize that there are employees out there that have the same level of common sense that Mr. Jack posseses. So I have decided that a simple modification of the safety feature as opposed to complete removal would be in everyones best interest. If Jack D reviewed the photos a little closer he would see that the safety feature has been modified with an angle grinder to correct the factory flaw. The excess bolt on the inside of the chute has been ground flush as well as the two center rods on the safety feature.

        2) AT tires used instead of proper Winter Tires.

        Had Mr Jack D. done any sort of serious research he would have found that the good people at Ariens use the exact same tire that I use. But at the time when I purchased these tires I did not realize Jack D. had a PhD on the subject of rubber.

        3) Prime Time Scrub 21"

        Jack D you are 100% correct in describing the 21" beast. I will agree with you
        that this is an inferior piece of comercial equipment. I give it 2 years max. It did however only cost me $149 bucks. Now I should have maybe purchased the toro proline or exmarks Metro 21. But to the tune of somewhere near $1100. The proline would have to last close to 14 years to be worth the money. This way...the piece of equipment that I scrubbed on was this. So while I agree with you that this unit is not a commercial unit. From a financial stand point it makes sense for me. But good eye on spotting that....It takes a true scrub to recognize this sort of device in the back ground of a photo nice work detective....your years of reading the "wheres waldo" series has finally paid off.

        4) Small tank/underpowered air

        Um.....What would I need a large volume air tank for. Everyone knows that a large volume tank has nothing to do with over all pressure....but rather the consistancy of the pressure. Seeing as how I am not doing any sort of professional painting.....a consistant flow of air is not needed. I simply need 90psi to run my impact and other air tools. This compressor is more than enough. In the event I need more hot air....you Mr Jack D will be commisioned for the task.

        5) Is that a Summer Hydro Filter Jack D. sees ?

        6) Xmark cheap Asian Rip-Off of eXmark

        Both of these can be addressed as Jack D. feeling the need to add to his empty list of observations. The filter and fluid have been changed to accomedate a lower temp. Much like the battery issue on his machines. He has done the Xmark picture mod half fast...as he forgot to shade the "Exmark" logo on the gas tank along with the shading of the decal on the controls.

        7) Battery too small for serious consideration or hand warmers

        This statement here proves to all of us that the only thing that is truly underpowered is Jack D.'s Brain. Had Mr. Jack D. truly understood the fundamentals of DC/ electronics. He would know that the size of the battery has little to do with the current needed to power DC devices on the Exmark. What matters most is the size of the Coil being used.

        The coil I use is a 13 AMP coil. when coupled with a 12V regulator the system is generating at full throttle 156 Watts. More than enough power to all that I have on the unit and if I so felt the need to keep my hands warm the 13AMP coil will provide more than enough power. A battery is needed to store the energy and to allow......much like a tank on an air compressor.....consistancy in the flow of power. The battery absorbs any spikes in power as well as subsidising any short comings the Coil may have. That is why my lights do not flicker or dim when I rotate the chute or vice versa.

        And lastly the remote spout control my opinion on that has been made clear...but just to recap......it was effort focused in the wrong direction. Again that is my opinion.

        So in closing Jack....you have done a great job at coming in a distant second....and after hearing some of your reasons you feel that my unit is sub standard...which were very few.... so you felt the need to include my compressor and mower into the reasons. Jack...you have proved to me that you try to mask your lack of knowledge with some fancy grammer and empty reasons about things you obviously know very little about what it is that you speak of. The battery coil issue is one example and the compressor tank size is another. we won't even go there with my choice of tire.

        Jack this has been fun.....you will have to send me pics of your machine once you have brought it up to standard. Again as always....my door is always open to help assist in any way. Best of Luck

            Thanks....I knew you would appreciate the battery. Jackie Must have some other electronic devices that must vibrate that he is not telling us about. I can't imagine needing a giagantic battery on the back none the less....that is screaming short circuit. Oh well....some of us plan our set ups and some have to learn the hard way.

                  If your sorry Butt could take the heat of summer, You could make a decent living here in Florida doing Fert & squirt. Work early mornings until 11 Am and late afternoons until dark in the middle of summer. Only problem is Real Estate value has gone up so high in the last year or so that it is no longer easy to find Reasonable living accomodations.

                      Mr. ba1m2x2's does not even have electric start or heated carb. Both important feature when working in cold climates. While Mr. ba1m2x2's works to pull the hydro disengage chain and dislocates his arm trying to start a frozen carb Jack D. will be clearing his third drive and will still have toasty hands.

                      One must wonder why lighting is needed on Mr.ba1m2x2's machine. These units are best on small residential drives in densely populated urban areas which are always well illuminated by streetlights and house lighting. Perhaps Mr. ba1m2x2 is in a more rural setting, in which case he should be plowing w/a truck mount.

                      The title of Ultimate Garage Fronted Small Residential Snow Removal Machines 2006テつョ has already been awarded to Jack D..

                      Better luck next year.

                          Part of me would like to ignore the bait set by Jack D. yet the humanatarian part wishes to help him to see the error of his ways. Turning over a 17HP motor in the winter has not proven to be an issue for myself or any of my employees. Thus no effort was made to simplify the starting procedure. Should MR Jack D. submit an Application with My Company for employment, I would have to deny on the basis that he lack the physical ability to perform the task at hand. Keep eating your wheaties chief.

                          I work on drives in the largest City in the State. While Portland may not be as large as other cities, it is large enough for street lights and densely populated area's. Jack D......sometimes the obvious isn't so obvious......so let me spell it out.....some times the purpose of lights is not only to see.....but to be seen.

                          I believe you can introduce an award to the masses....however once the masses are aware of an award.....it is through their acceptance that the award be granted. And after reviewing the thread.....I would have to say that post #48 was the official "GAME SET MATCH".....also after winning the acceptance of the masses I would have to say that this award has been given to the appropriate winner. Any comments you may have following such decision seems like you are in denial. I will offer this in fairness to Scaper-S2k.....the title remains open in my opinion should he prove to display an item that is superior to mine. I would have to be gracious and admit defeat.....
                          I will also offer this to Mr. Jack D. should you come up with something better....by all means....show us....and show the world and let us decide on your abilities......in this country we are judged by our peers.....not by our own opinions of ourselves. Good luck I am awaiting your plagerized version of The Ultimate Garage Fronted Small Residential Snow Removal Machines 2006テつョ

                              If that isn't the BIGGEST waste of money I have ever seen in my life!!!!!!!

                              A shovel is 1/10 the price I am sure....and will work ten times better..............

                              Jackie D that is awfully cute.....I am starting now to get a clearer picture as to why you have such a hard time starting your Exmark without electric start.

                              Now really.....if I seriously had one of those on my truck the only place I would use it is where no one could see me. Imagine the ridicule I would receive from the local pre-schoolers as the pointed and mocked my Martha Stewart/Black and Decker Novelty Item. Who ever convinced you to buy that is a hell of a salesperson. Did he sell you blinker fluid too? Please for your own dignity......stop now. While you can still show your face here

                                Jack D. has been known to have a typo or two......are we to presume that this wasn't also an error in key stroke.
