DIY RC Lawnmower


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!).

    Hehe. My latest project looks a lot like this…with a la-z-boy on top…but no spinning blade of death. Not nearly as practical as Terry’s…but I do have a cupholder for my beer. :)

    Here’s another R/C lawnmower that looks like a lot of fun!

    Am I the only one who gets the shivers seeing that guy put his toes almost under the spinning mower blade wearing only sandals? Sheesh- he has a _lot_ more trust in his RC than I would… :-)

    yeah as my toes cringed… then I remembered this Dead Alive

    warning: very bloody and violent, but hilarious.

    I made a 7 hp R/C mower with a 24V alternator to drive and charge my too 12v batters and I can adjust the wheels with one lever and I can sit in front of my computer in my house and mow my yard drinking my ice tea now that cool if I don’t say……go to my face book and see my videos my name is Dale Frizzell
    And I fixing to turn it in to a drone with head tracking from fat shark FPV.
    And I have made a biger one with remote start and it has a 12HP 24V alternator to drive and charge my too 12v batters It made out of a snapper ride lawn mower.
