Terry made what ever wants when they think about mowing the lawn… A remote controlled lawn mower…

“Laziness is the Mother of Invention” So you might ask yourself “Why build an RC Mower?”. Why not? Who likes mowing the lawn? Whoever answered “I do!” needs a swift kick in the happy-sacks. Next to actually riding the lawn mower as you mow, what could be more fun than sitting on the porch, beer in one hand, radio transmitter in the other, mowing away merrily? Actually, if you strapped a seat onto this one, you COULD ride it!).
