    I can just see my customers running out to buy that thing. How big is it? They might as well just park a road crew on their lawn.
    That thing wont take business away from you unless you are doing 15 acres of flat surface.

    I was thinking the same thing. I bet you would go through a lot of blades unless you was running in front of it.

    Its a Little better then you think. They have two mowers the other one has a bagger. They are computer controlled with a program and a full floating deck and rotary blade deck.

    This is just the Beging of the future. They laughed at the wright brothers.

    Seems like it would be a gas guzzler. With the added weight of all the computer stuff on there to control it and all those metal protector things around the sides and since it deffinatly wouldn't be as effincient IMO as if there was a human operator on a regular WB i would think it would go through alot of gas. Just my .02 though

    I saw one at the GIE expo in orlando. the guy was starting a demo on it...he fired it up and turned on the computer. I promptly drove itself thorugh the "reflector" stakes(imaginary wall) and almost hit a guy demoing a spreader in the next booth....Everybody started was great....

    You will either have to put markers on the property or GPS program the entire get it to work real good....but I dont think i'd turn it loose without watching it...and this one had a small engine powering a generator and had electric motors spinningthe blades.
