I saw a TV ad the other day for Huskivarner. They now have a walk behind mower with 4 wheel drive.

Really? Do I need this? Do I even want to change that belt?

Aim it towards your cabin in the woods, and see if it makes it there.

I saw that also. I cut everything with my all wheel steer JD and a weed eater.

It might if it can cut a mature pine tree!

  It's all about marketing strategy to an increasingly lazy public. It seems walking behind a push mower or,heaven forbid, actually pushing one, is no longer considered a "PC" form of exercise. I have my old Wizard alum. deck mulcher,which is a "push" type, rescued from the dump 8 yrs ago and it will get a new engine when the time comes.

I will only add that I could see us using one of those at my church. Our pond is down in a hole with steep hills on both sides. We try to cut with our big zero turn, but man is it dangerous. We usually let it grow up and cut late summer one time with a rented brush style cutter and it's still bad news with that. The 4x4 mower would allow us to be able to worry about footing and not the pushing up or down or if mower is going to tip over on us. It maybe more of a gimic for regular home owner and contribute to the laziness, but I can see a few applications for it.
