Went to a garage sale yesterday and found a Robomower for $50. Got it working on the yard now while I am sitting inside under the A/C.

Those things are up to 2500 bucks, depending on model!


SCORE!!!


Good for you!

A what?

Thanks. Besides all that I can stick it to the oil companies for $4.00 per week since I won't be using my gas mower.
Man I love garage sales.

its an ATF plan to survey your yard without a warrant ..

and you fell for the " 50 buck wierd cheap lawn mower device " trick

first link i came across.. $2000

damn you did good.. even if the ATfags are looking at your undergrounds.



So you’ve heard of the Roomba, right? The device that sweeps your living room for you? Well, if you’ve ever wondered when someone would invent one for the lawn, your prayers have been answered, via the aptly-named Auto Mower from Husqvarna, which runs on its own and can be set to operate at a specific time. Auto Mower works in the rain, climbs inclines, and turns around when it bumps into something. It’s even quiet enough to run at night! Just bury a “boundary wire” around your lawn, so Auto Mower will know not to slay your prize-winning petunias. The device runs on a rechargeable battery, and comes with a dock. And don’t worry: no one can steal your new best friend, as a 4-digit pin number is required to even pick it up. Auto Mower is available (at only a few stores) for $2000. Sounds high, until you compare it to lawnmower fuel costs, hiring someone to mow it for you, or just having some extra free time.

Yes, because people in flyover states have sex with animals.

You set out a preimeter wire, hook the ends to a box that sends a signal through the wire. The mower picks up the signal and stays inside the perimeter.

I wish it would shrivel up some. I'm tired of tripping over it.
