I believe you. But whoever can figure out how to do it first is going to have a major win on their hands, especially if it is the same price as a conventional mower.

Think about it....no cord, no gas or oil no noise and more space in the garage.

Win, win, win.

Oh yeah, no pollution either. I have read a few times that the average lawnmower spews out as much pollution as 40 cars driving for one hour.
Amazing.
