That cord is going to need to be a lot longer ;)

Of course Hustler has one coming out soon. I guess if you are a homeowner, and that's your thing, more power to ya.

That makes me want to jump off the nearest cliff into a pool of burning battery acid and gasoline...covered in flames.

It's battery powered. They just use the cord for the picture so you know it's electric.

i see people all the time useing those electric push mowers that you have to have a drop cord hooked to. i hate the dam cord on the vaccumm much less fighting it on a push mower. what happens when you cut it and the step on it and the breaker dosent flip. fried D/A electric mower user.

Awww that is sooo cute I would have to be afraid of loading it on the trailer in such a way
that it comes flying off alongside a busy interstate, or that I might be hurling it across the yard.

But it is awful cute, I would feel so bad.

Come to think of it maybe that's the manufacturing strategy?
Yes boss we know it's a POS but it looks sooo fine that customers CAN'T throw it away.

Looks cool to me, looks like it has calipers/rotors on the front wheels. Deck may be plastic. Actually, the whole thing maybe plastic, or carbon fiber.

it says this right below the article

What's the deal with all the BIG Cialis and Trojan Condom adds on this site?!?!? I think you are being sponsored by "technology" for the wrong kind of "equipment".......

They said its made from "recycled materials" - I bet thats code word for plastic

I shudder to think what little dinky piece of s_hit the eco freaks are going to force me to buy in 20 years. Hopefully in 20 years the climate change religion will have been exposed and debunked.

did they take the power wheels sticker off it first before they put it on the market Al Gore will love this one
