Think about… Sitting in a lawn chair, underneath a tree, drinking a beer, pushing a few buttons on a transmitter, while watching your neighbor sweat his butt off. How cool is that? Your kids will actually fight you for getting to mow the lawn! Ever thought you’d see the day?
This project requires some basic mechanical skill and basic electrical skills. You should be familiar with working with metal and welding, and reading an electrical schematic. You don’t need to be an engineer, but you should feel comfortable building stuff in the garage and being creative.
This whole project can be built for under 500 bucks, and that includes the 150-200 dollar cost of the push mower as the donor. Considering that most people have an old push mower lying around, you could conceivably build this thing for under 300 bucks. Look around, a factory built remote control mower can run for $3,000! Who wants to spend that much? Build your own, have fun and bond with your kids, and then drink some beer while the lawn gets cut. What else could be better?
