One thing about it.....you will probably either like it or hate it......I think it will appeal to alot of people who would like something multipurpose but never thought they could get it. I think it could be a huge winner for Lowes......this is an easy sale at home....honey it mows, kids can ride it like a 4 wheeler, and when the storm comes.....we have a back up generator. I think for light duty, they owner can get its value....as a farm boy on the farm, mowing and riding....probably not.
But it is exciting.....and maybe a game changer in the lawnmower utility industry. It makes us look outside our comfort zone.......that is not all bad!
What I am seeing in my part of the lawn and garden industry is "what have you got new" I hear that at every show and every stop I make......wow....if you are the Lowes mower salesman.....he has got at the minmum.....a conversation piece unlike any other.......at the best....the guys next utility mower/4wheeler/generator..
I did watch the movie....the front end (when he came off the road) was stiffer than what I thought a 4wheeler would have been....the left side stayed pretty rigid.....so they may have given it enough flex to handle some rough terrain....but not enough to ruin a good mowing job.
I dont think it is for the guy tilling a garden or doing heavy work, but I think it will fit a niche.......but fun to see how it does. Thanks for posting it!
Note- probably not something I would buy......but as they improve it and if it holds up.....I might consider a more conservative looking one......heck every time ford makes a major body change for the most part I hated it.....then it grew on me.....then I owned one.....
