There is a house next to the golfcourse that has a husqvarna one. Shittiest looking cut out of all the homes there. We're talking 2+million dollar homes lining a golf course, with stripped and professional done lawns, and then there's this guy. For the average suburban lawn I think it would be pretty great though. For your parents if they're not picky on cut quality, it would sure be pretty helpful. I'm sure they'll get better as time goes on, but the randomness and inefficiency of the motion drives the Machinist in me bonkers...... I want one that I can program for different patterns. My Son and I have actually talked about building one. I'll handle the mechanical (tracked skidsteer, all hydraulic), and he can figure out the programming as a highschool project. I told him we need to figure it out before he moves out or he doesn't get all the college money . I want to be able to draw a boundary on something like google maps, then program the toolpath accordingly, and have onboard sensors figure out the rest regarding obstacles etc. I have about 4acres to cut, and would probably do more if it wasn't such a time suck pain in the ass.
