ive never done it...and the segway does look like a neat ride...but you still end up looking like some silicon valley techno weenie while riding it...

I have an X2 Segway. I use to spray large industrial/commercial accounts. I don't care what I look like riding it....it gets a lot of work done with it. Had it for 2 years now and would be lost without it. Saves huge amounts of time. All I can say about it.

Morturf, THANK YOU! I'm so glad someone who has one responded. Do you think it would work out for delivering flyers door to door? I will park it in the driveway and walk up. What do you think?

You use it to spray!? I need pictures! Do you use a backpack sprayer or have some kind of rig?

They don't just park....sort of have mind of their own when left and they take a bit to spin back up.....but you can figure it out. I let it rest against something so it won't wonder off.

I use a backpack to spray. Works well and I like it. Sorry no pictures and none too soon due the the crappy weather. Thanks

why would you want to spend 4k just to pass out flyers?
