Craftsman has introduced its new CTX line of garden tractors which have everything from cup holders to power streering. They have a top end of 8 mph (OK, maybe not fast enough to out run a charging gator, but still fast for a mower). In fact, Craftsman is introducing the new line at this years Detroit Auto Show. Of course, some of the purists are objecting:
Come on! That bad boy can do eight miles per hour. Personally, my concern is a bit different about having Craftsman, a division of Sears, enter the Detroit Auto Show. In light of the announced closures of many Sears stores, does this move foreshadow the federal government spending more of my money to prop up Sears as it did Chrysler and GM?
