Great reviews on Lowes.com (unless they are planted).

Concept is solid tho, Similar to the Chevy Volt.

Funny to see this posted on SD today, was researching them earlier after seeing them mentioned on a Prius forum.

I owned one of these for a few weeks. Great idea, but give it a couple years. It was rushed in my opinion. Body panels did not match up properly, cheap 12volt battery with many complaints of going on. Steering is very heavy and primative feeling. Changing from high to low gear in done under the mower.
If they slow down and properly align the body panels, put a good engine in it, add power steering or improve it some how. Add ability to change high/low gear from inside seating area, add a good 12volt battery, replace the weak under seat safety switch and this machine may go somewhere. Definitely would not recommend this mower as it is. Model two or three, maybe down the road.

Good idea. Go ahead and buy a new 12 volt battery and replace it. You'll be happier. I did like the seat and entry space. Very nice. With some improvements it will be a hit if the quality is improved and longevity is proven.
