of buying a pair of Herman's Survivors there about 15 years ago. The

I had a good client in the Bentonville area who, on one of my regular
visits there, had arranged for me to be the featured speaker at a Rotary
luncheon. After my talk, one of the Rotarians, the WalMart exec
responsible for my flavor of consulting, invited me to meet with him to
explore doing a project with them.
Long story short: he offered me 40% of my quoted standard fee. I
countered with 90% to which he said 40% - take it or leave it. I thanked
him politely and walked away.

I bought a Husqvarna push mower earlier this year. No brake on it.
Apparently it's not a universal thing. This particular unit is a

If it is sold in the USA some sort of protection is there. Maybe it has
a different name, but there is a safety device.
A federal safety standard for power mowers, developed by CPSC, took
effect June 30, 1982. All walk-behind
power rotary lawn mowers manufactured since then must meet the mandatory
safety requirements designed to
reduce hand and foot contact with the moving blade.
THE CPSC STANDARD
If you purchase a new walk-behind rotary lawn mower, the machine must
meet the federal standard, and must
be certified as complying with the regulation. Some of the safety
features of the regulation include:
The blade brake control. On all new mowers, an automatic brake stops
the blade in three seconds when
the operator releases his/her grip on the handle-mounted control bar.
This feature prevents the rotary
blade from operating unless the operator actuates the control. It also
requires the operator to maintain
continuous contact with the control to keep the blade operating, and
stops the blade completely within
three seconds when the operator releases the control. If the mower only
has a manual start, the control
must stop the blade without shutting down the engine, unless the manual
starting control is located
within 24 inches from the top of the handle, or the mower has a 360
degree foot shield. For user
protection, the mower must also have a secondary control which must be
activated before the mower
can be operated
