No No No! People are lazy a$$es enough, last thing we need is technology to allow us to be lazier. If you dont want to mow your own lawn, hire a non-lazy-a$$ to do it for you.

Not sure about the gay part, but no, I owuldn't buy one. Even when I had to push mow (not even self-propelled) the yard that would be better than the robot. Just last week we finally got a tractor so now mowing isn't an issue.

OUCH. More Michigan jokes...you SOB!!!!!! That was funny though.

I'm sick, I love mowing the lawn. I love being outside and I actually truly do love yard work, landscaping, that type of stuff. One note....only my own. Doing someone elses...I don't think so. I pride myself on having the best lawn on the block.

If I were to spend $1600 for a mower, she wouls slap the ***** out of me. I would rather pay the kid down the street to do it all summer and still save a ton of money. For the price, he would cut it for a few years.

I only use the latest in modern technology to mow my lawn.


My 1968 Cub Cadet 125

I enjoy mowing my yard. I find it relaxing.

I use to hate mowing the grass for work but like many of you, it doesn't bother me much anymore... But I don't mow my grass, the association does it for me!

Mowing the lawn and other yard work are prime beer drinking hours . Now if the mower would bring me a fresh cold one and I could just sit and watch id be ok with that.

Neighbor bought a lawn trailer just to put his cooler of beer in.
Its funny to watch a drunk shirtless beer belly redneck try to mow the lawn.
