    I've got a little over 3 acres which a guy down the street has been mowing very inexpensively for the past few years, however, he is retiring from mowing after this season. - I have no desire to start mowing, but he was so cheap, I'll never find someone to match his price. - I'm now tasked with shopping around for mowers, and one thing that keeps popping into my head are the robotic mowers. - The largest ones only do a little over an acre, but if the front acre can be maintained nicely, the rear 2 can be cut less often. -

    I have read a lot of reviews and literature on the bigger robotic brands, but still can't seem to justify the price for such a new to market item. - $3,500 would be fine if it lasts 10 years, but if it peters out in 3 years, that's kindof a lot.

    May be something to look into. - I know I'm still pondering one.

    Beautiful property Sal and others. While I am not a fan of cutting grass I would much rather do it than shovel snow. I have a 1 1/2 acres but only 1/2 acre to mow, rest is woods. I have a riding tractor and a push mower, problem is there has been soooooo much rain that the crabgrass has taken off causing me to mow every 4 days.

    What I see is... plenty of room for a HUGE shop. You won't have to mow the concrete, that's for sure!

    That was me back in the day - circa 1966 - 1970 before I had a driver's license. I used to cut 10 - 12 lawns per week as a kid. I used to cut my grandma's lawn - she lived about 2 miles away - I'd ride my bike and pull my Lawn Boy lawn mower using my right arm as the tow bar. I filled the tank on the mower up so I didn't need to have a 5 gallon gas can in tow.
