    WOW! That's cool as crap!

    But... how long are the batteries "supposed" to last (in terms of overall life before they won't hold a charge anymore) and how much $$$ is it to replace them?

    If the price is right, I can see this being a homeowners dream machine... No gas cans, no oil changes, totally quiet...

    Neat looking machine! To employ it for myself, I need 4 hours of runtime, an extra set of batteries, and around an 6 hr charge time. If that is worked into this model, put my name down on one!

    I have a funny feeling this will be the norm in the near future.

    Kinda reminds me of the first Hustler ztr.

    This looks good for the home. Are the batteries some sort of quick change - like swap the set for charged ones?
