    Nah. It can't stripe (yet?). It can't edge or really actually trim, I think. I think for people that want something like this, whoever comes out first, Husqvarna, probably, will make it affordable for the low-end homeowners to be able to buy one, or it may be fairly expensive. This may be a good thing for us. If you tailor to cheap azz lawns, you're gonna get jipped. I'd say the the people that care enough about their lawn to hire a human being to mow it, they will. Which means saved time by not having to go bid **** lawns! This thing could actually help us! :D

    Looks like it would make for some interesting target practice.

    30-06 and a good scope. :D

    I noticed that according to the article, the Husky company is owned by Electrolux.

    Here's a quick fact you may or may not know. When Electrolux first started sending vacumn cleaners to the U.S. they didn't know all the double meanings of many English words. They almost killed themselves when their slogan was:

    "Nothing sucks like an Electrolux!"


    True story.

    You could set up your ZTR mower to mow the lawn for you, with a combo of global navigation, are a computer to store the memory of how you mowed the lawn the first time, and some large remote control parts, But how dangerous would that be?
    Ive though of making one remote control, you could just site in the shade and drive your mower! That would be fun!

    How about this: You buy 10 or 15 of them and set up your clients lawns, then you just move them around among your 70 to 100 clients. :)
