i'd like one. a batwing. 14' or so. anybody got one theyd let go cheap? my back aches after too much time in the saddle. i figure a robot type rig would be just the thing. been thinking on it for some time.
i'd trade even , or nearly, for my rainmaker. you haul.

Years ago, i used a wheel-less lawn mower in Australia and it was a real treat especially on slopes - it hovered and i think it was called a "hover-mow". Of course anything that handy would go against every protestant work ethic our glorious industrialists have ever embraced so they were deemed as illegal as fullsized Datsuns by those we employ to protect us against ourselves. Sure was slick though. :)

I worked for a Lawn and Garden Distributor out of St. Louis in the mid 80's and we distributed the Flymo's for a while. You are right,they were great on slopes and around a ponds edge. However, if you got them into the water "they would not fly nor would they mow" HAHAHAHa

Toolman who lives up in the Crows Nest Pass of The Peoples Republic of BC has the patent on a Lazer Guided Lawnmower. Maybe you should order one of his.
Later Bob

Seen them little critters crawling around yards in town. Cute. Try to use something like that around my place and my neighbor would shoot it for scaring the cows.

i got a neighbor what likes to shoot. he has poor peepers too. he'd shoot thinking it was the biggest ground hog on earth. he shoot up our grandsons soccur ball thinkin it was a spotted albino possum. he shot his own camper once. from the inside out. dreamt he was out huntin. put a hole in his friends truck just outside. he don't hear so good and never woke up. everybody else in the trailer did. a 3030 is loud in a small space. we put up the guns at night now when we are in hunt camp. can't take more of that.
