    It's billed as "The World's First Self-Guided Commercial Lawnmower."

    Check out this video file! Pretty interesting!

    I saw that in the newest Pro (?) mag. It looks awesome. I went to the website to get more info...esp on pricing - emailed them and I have never heard anything back. If I remember correctly, you have 4-5 reflectors around the perimeter and have it go around once - it has sensors for going around objects, both stationary, ie trees and movable objects, ie doggies, toys. VERY VERY COOL! I wish they would email me back. If they do, I will tell you all what the avg unit runs.

    Eliminate your helper! LOL! Pull up to your customers lawn, stick that thing in the grass, grab your string trimmer. You trim, edge, blow, pick that mower back up and throw it in the bed of your truck and off ya go to the next one. No employee to pay.
    I like it!. Could it really be that easy?LOL. Not likely.

    in the Pro article it claims to have the memory for 300 lawns. Sound like a winner to me. Love to see it in action.

    Man I hate having regular dial up modem! I tried to view that video, but it was taking FOREVER so I only got half way through it. And I couldn't get the audio to play, and they were talking on it.

    But from what I saw, It is pretty neat looking. KenH it stops if something enters it's path, like a person or a dog. Goes around an item left in lawn (they had golf bag).

    It showed a money savings comparison between hired labor and using one of these, but I couldn't read it (too unclear).

    I wonder what they cost.
