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?
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.
Aaron Hemberger: The deck isnt wide enough to go outside the tracks? Kind of defeats the purpose
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
Hayden Gregory: How much is a trx -42 with headlights
Hayden Gregory: Dear santa
Kent Keller: Nevermind, I just saw where it said 6v on the charge plug label.
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.
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.
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: Hitec
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.: 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
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: Hitec, Savox, Tonegawa?
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: 12v servos for the hydros and giant scale servos on the throttle n choke
bigdogzz55: If you don't mind me asking what are you using to control the throttle and the hydro drive?
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
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.
sins of vorador: why throttle the engine down . most places say to engage the deck with the throttle wide open
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.: not yet but I have had requests for everything else. A guy had me build a robot to ride his horses once
douro20: Has anyone asked you to build one with ASV track drive units?
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: The robotics run off of the 12v starter battery that is kept charged by the alternator.
James A. Deignan: Could you make the engine alternator charge the robotics battery?
Summit Lawn Mower Co.: I ship world wide friend. SummitMowers com
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!
