I wasnt talking about that exact one. I was referring to remote control mowers in general.

There seems to be a lot of liability in something like that. Kid or small pet wonders around it a suddenly a steering malfunction.

I have a customer that used to use one of the electric ones. Paid me 15.00 a week to do all the edging, trimming, and blowing. He was constantly asking me to mow because it broke down. He would have to pay shipping every time to get it repaired and soon realized that it was cheaper to have me mow for another 12 per week. He finally trashed it.

Makes my job easy...or you can look at it this way, that's one less employee you have to hire....turn it on and edge,trim, and blow while this thing mows! BAMMMMM!!!! BIG MONEY! Put some sensors on it so it's like an Escalade or even some "curb feelers, and you're set! LOL :hammerhead:

That's strange, I had it all figured out some time ago, and right about now I should be a millionaire, because with my experience and top notch equipment I was sure soon it would put everyone else out of business, but for some odd reason this did not happen. :confused:

Stranger still, it almost seems like there's even more lawn guys than before, but I could be wrong.

Go figure, I better get back to work now :cry:

And then what are you going to do for the other 30 minutes will it is trying to finish the lawn. If they could get it to speed up, it might be something to look it. Right now they are way to slow.

The planet will be out of fossil fuel before before mowers like that are used......

I saw this product in Kentucky. It coast around $26,000.00+ and works with GPS technology. Ideal for football fields. It has alot of sensors.

Wow! That thing cut a whole 100 sq. ft. in about 3 minutes. I'm putting my biz on ebay! I would think Exmark's R & D would be farther along by now. Just kidding "red" guys!
