    All of my mowers have an alternator to keep the battery topped off while in use. There is no lawn mower in existence that can generate its own electricity from going down hills.

    One more service person to put back on the would be parked fleet of zero-turn money makers. When the zero-turns are rolling, money is being made. When you park your fleet of zero-turn money makers to put the whole crew on a slope with weed eaters (especially in mountain regions) you are loosing productivity and profits.

    Another piece of equipment that takes up space on the trailer--
    if usage is 10%-on each property...it might be a stretch to justify carrying it....no doubt it is a time saver......i'd just have to have lots of hills-

    Don't forget about the fact that people are required to build and maintain the mowers.....plus one to operate it.

    That, I think, would be very easy to do.

    See video on my original post. If you say you can now that hill with a zero turn, you are a super hero. A lot of companies are not allowed to.

    I've mown a hill like that, every other week at a sewage treatment plant @ close to a 3:1 slope. Let me demo one at the facility. Oh, where do I collect my cape? :weightlifter:
