With the rising cost of labor, and the ability to find and retain good help, here is what I envision. I currently own 2 Bad Boy 60" riders, a 50" rider. Also have a Bobcat 52" rider, and a 61" Scag rider. I want to own 6 riders. And a few walk behinds. I want to be able to tandem the riders on very large jobs. (Ball fields, parks, etc.) What I envision is to be able to drive up to one rider, and somehow couple it to another rider, or two. The one rider would control them all. I would increase my productivity, without increasing my labor. Auto manufacturers are making the steering, gas, and brake pedals, not direct controlled, mower manufacturers should be able to follow suit. A company is out there now, trying to make mowers that are robotic, run on lasers. They charge you for the mower, then charge you an hourly fee for the amount of time the mower cuts grass. They understand the problem of quality help, and are trying to make the mowing robotic, while making the trimming, edging, and blowing the human emphasis. I think coupling two or three mowers that can be independently run, or coupled to allow for greater productivity, the better way to go into the future. Thoughts, anyone????
