Electric riding? I must not get out enough, 'cause I've never heard of an electric riding mower.

I would never pay that kinda dinero for a mower that wasn't a zero-turn model, Joe.

I've never tried a 'lectric mower of any kind. Curious to hear what you think of that thing.

Does it double as a snow blower inna wintertime?

Interesting. Had not heard of an electric rider before.

I wonder what the long-term battery life would be. I imagine it would be expensive to replace, but if you could get 10-12 years or more that would be acceptable.

Electric? Naw. Gotta spit out some pollution if you're gonna mow more than a city lot.

Well, Kevin, up there above the Circle a fella prolly mows only a couple weeks a year, maybe those batteries could last that long.

That thing run on LiIon batteries, Joe, or something even newer and more exotic?

I think ol'Joe has done abandoned thissy here thread, Kevin.

I'd be more interested in knowing about that two-wheeled thing that boy is riding on whilst following that mower about.

That's a hoverboard. Never been brave enough to risk my tailbone on one of those.

I'm still here. Sitting in a hotel in NYC right now. Will be here all week at a conference. Presenting on Wednesday. Guess I should have made an hasta post.

Got the new mower last week and have mowed twice with it so far. Works well, damn near silent without the blades spinning. Still reasonable with the mower blades spinning around. Goes for about two hours before needing a charge. Batteries are sealed lead-acid.

You mean winter hasn's set in up there yet, Joe?

I've long wanted to try one of them Segue thingees, Kevin, but at lest they got something to hold onto. That hoverthing looks like a good way for old peoples to bust their asses. Much like skateboards, eh?
