    Hi guys,

    My friend who has quite the impressive machine shop and I both have a lot of steep slopes 40 degree or steeper around our homes. We have talked for years about building a remote mower. Well long story short its built, right now we are using the wheels and tires from the wheel chair, I am wondering if anyone has and plans or drawings for a track driven unit. I would like to convert this to a track style mower?

    Thanks

    Mark

    Well our first one went really well. I decided to change the idea of the track drive to a 4 wheel drive with some aggressive tires. I was afraid of tearing up the grass on the slopes with the tracks. I never found any plans etc so we just made our own design.
    The mower in progress now will have a 30" cut, 4wd, 20hp briggs, and you can adjust deck height via remote.

    John,
    What is the liability? Keep in mind I am mowing my personal lawn only, I dont have any nearby neighbors.

    I think that would pretty much take care of it.
