James Abbott Abbott: no more getting stuck in the grass technologies coming
Aaron Hemberger: The deck isnt wide enough to go outside the tracks? Kind of defeats the
Hayden Gregory: How much is a trx -42 with headlights
Kent Keller: 5765 model probably? It looked like you were using a 12 volt battery for
the electronics. Is there a voltage regulator being used on the radio
receiver and servos, which can't handle 12v.
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: The tracks are beside the deck to maximize its ability to stick to the side
of a steep hill...its purpose. The deck out front (like the TRX-60) makes
the front end want to go down hill. The TRX-60 would be close to 7' wide if
its tracks were beside the deck making it hard to fit on a standard trailer.
sins of vorador: i can understand the cutting it off or disengaging the blades. but not to
engage even my manual says to engage them at high throttle. something about
the low rpms can cause the engine to stall. after i seen the video i got
out the manual. i do know this i would love to have the TRX-22-SE. theres
quit a few hills and banks i'd use this thing at. lol
bigdogzz55: If you don't mind me asking what are you using to control the throttle and
the hydro drive?
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: ch-6 has a knob instead of toggle for video panning and a short receiver
antenna wire. The battle switch in most cases needs an external relay. I
have just recently started using a servo to operate a rocker switch to
energize a relay - robust and ready to take a licking and keep on ticking
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: The elecs run off the 12V lead acid battery which is kept charged by the
engine's internal alternator
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: 12v servos for the hydros and giant scale servos on the throttle n choke
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: see my video called "World's Fastest Remote Control Lawn Mower" you can see
the quality of cut even at high speed. It will tear the turf on saturated
soil or if you install studs in the tracks for super steep hills
firejake1033: I wish this would have showed us how it actually cut. The quality of the
cut, and how bad the tracks tear up the lawn if any.
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: It is the other way around. You want to throttle down when stopping the
engine and when you engage or dis engage the blades.
Kent Keller: Hitec, Savox, Tonegawa?
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: Hitec
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: The robotics run off of the 12v starter battery that is kept charged by the
Aaron Hemberger: Gotcha I see now that u have a regular model with tires in the normal
position. Do u have any with comercial decks and pumps?
Kent Keller: Pretty cool mower. What kind of run time do you get before having to
recharge? Tactic radio? I'd be using a Futaba. You could use an Aux channel
to turn headlights on and off remotely using a remote relay like the
Dimension Engineering - Battle Switch
Kent Keller: If the rx goes dead or you loose battery power to the electronics do you
have any safety device to close the throttle or kill the engine? Like the
Killer RC - Super Bee kill switch, which grounds out the ignition coil,
stopping the engine during a radio glitch or battery power loss.
douro20: Has anyone asked you to build one with ASV track drive units?
Josh Wallie: I'm a lawn care provider... While this concept is cool, it seems
impractical, mostly because the deck is inside the tracks thus leaving a
lot of uncut grass around flower beds, trees, etc
James A. Deignan: Could you make the engine alternator charge the robotics battery?
sins of vorador: why throttle the engine down . most places say to engage the deck with the
throttle wide open
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: not yet but I have had requests for everything else. A guy had me build a
robot to ride his horses once
Hayden Gregory: Dear santa
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: I ship world wide friend. SummitMowers com
Kent Keller: Nevermind, I just saw where it said 6v on the charge plug label.
Anthemius Prod: wth.. i want that thing too for my garden..
metalmoore04: That's what I want! Of course I probably couldn't afford one right now, but
that would be sweet...Very nice!
Chef de NYC: Thanks! I'm more info ultrasound type of work. I learn most of the stuff myself online. Just only recently start looking for a school to make things "official". Hehe
