Remote control lawnmower

Postby Nickscafe » Tue May 08, 2018 9:46 am



It's only 900 bucks. I don't think I'll get one, but I'm not totally against it. Cheap ones cost 150 bucks. I just paid my last condo fee, which was 340 a month and I have no yard. So that's 4000 a year with no yard. I don't think I actually know anybody with a remote control lawnmower.

I'm thinking more about it. This is robotic. Not remote control. I thought most of them were remote control. So far Worx Landroid has a great review and it is 900 dollars at home depot. It can only do a quarter of an acre and I will have 2 side lawns and a small back lawn. Hmm. Most of them do not do well on edges so you need a weedwacker type things to just trim there. Beats mowing when it's 100 degrees out.

Most of them have wires to prevent them from going off-track. Good for safety and good for the company. Tough to share with your neighbor ;).

$900 is already expensive enough.

Yes lol. I'm surprised it's not more popular. I've never seen one. Maybe they go down in price or improve.

This article is two years old but is interesting. I don't wish I had a yard but if I ever do again, I will definitely get one of these.
