I just saw an ad on the Speed Channel for the class action suit against the lawnmower manufacturers for claiming higher hp than the motors really produced. While I am sure you like me had always realized that a selfpropelled mower did not have 6.25 horsepower maybe some did not of course it really did not hurt anyone unless some companies were exaggerating more than others. The only ones really benefitting off of the suit will be the lawfirm who dreamed it up, the costs will be past on to the consumer in years to follow.

Here is what I would love to see happen,

For all of the major mower manufacturers to band together and advertise on TV that they are sorry for thier mistake and would like to see the consumers not the lawyers benefit from the settlement, and they will pay directly to consumers an amount 50% in excess of what the lawfirm will pay to the consumer and the check will get to the consumers door in 2 weeks after the letter with purchase reciept is recieved by the manufacturers association.

It seems to me this would be a great way to derail the lawfirms who dream up this kind of shit!

I put my lawnmower on a dyno and it made .8 HP more than they said. Do I have to pay the manufacturer some money?

All kidding aside. I got a notice in the mail about this. Why does anyone care what the HP rating is if the lawnmower does what it's supposed to do? :confused:

They don't care about the horsepower, it's the money they want!:D

My buddy knew nothing about this but got a check for about $100+ about a month ago because he bought a new lawn tractor a few years ago. If you made a purchase in the last few years, get your bucks back too.

Sorta like the Murray deal years ago that put one of the biggest lawn mower companies out of business and a lot of people lost their jobs. Then the Chinese stuff took over.

Maybe the freakin stupid lawyers should go after the Chinese companies for all the crap being sold here. Idiots. But they can't because it would cost them more then they would make off the American public.

My understanding on this is they test the engines in an unrealistic setting, like a very cool temperature, no air cleaner, etc. etc. If they evening touch that number on the dyno thats what they rate it. Yes, I do very much agree that it is a sue happy world and it's just a bunch of jackoffs looking to pad their own pockets.
