Just get one of these. When I get a house and move out of my apartment, that is going to be one of my first purchases. I mowed the lawn enough when I lived when my parents. Never again!
Worth it in the sense I'm disabled, can't mow my lawn and cheaper then having to hire someone. This is the one I have and it uses an in-ground perimeter / boundary wire for the property edge and obstacles like trees / flower beds. It mows everything in that boundary and returns to the base when done or needs recharging
My sentiments exactly. Apparently you can get them on Amazon.
Oh they exist.
A robot lawn mower that can be programmed to cut the grass.
That stuff has been in stores for years.
Got excited about the lawnmower, can't say I wasn't surprised about the price (not the exact same one though)
I have a drainage ditch that I needed to mow on a corner house with a slope of 30 degrees in some places.
I was looking at several options and ultimately decided on getting an all wheel drive mower.
If the ditch wasn't so close to the street and I had more money I would have really liked to give one of those robot mowers a shot.
Something like this - [link]
Of course there's always the redneck way: [link]
Is you slope steeper than 20 degrees? Almost all riding mowers do recommend mowing on anything higher than 20 to 25 degrees.
They do, and they're rather expensive.
I'm not saying that telemarketers are necessary, but there are a lot of folks making a living talking on the telephone whose days are numbered.
You realize that there are already autonomous trucks operating in oil fields as we speak, right? Or that the insurance firms are already trying to figure out how they'll deal with driverless vehicles when they hit the road?
Meanwhile, a Chinese construction firm is in the process of rolling out 3D printed buildings, and have stated that the technology reduces labor needs by 70 - 80%.
And then there's the "lawn roomba" that you can already buy on amazon, but don't worry, they also come in professional grade versions if you're dealing with large areas.
I know people want to trot out the Luddite fallacy every time someone says that 'robots will take our jobs', but there are some really smart folks who are pretty convinced that this time it's going to be different.
And it's not even that robots will take all of the jobs, but automation is going to begin hollowing out the employment market soon (and already is), and thanks to Moore's law, once it starts in earnest, it will only pick up speed.
Actually there are some available for just $1,000. Although you might be better off getting one with a larger battery.
You could have let a robot take care of it for you
