Had a look at what makes the wheels drive, no belts,pulleys, shaft, the gearbox looks a bit like a reduction drive starter motor and is just electric as far as i can tell. Cant wait to get my hands on one
Maybe if I was mowing the back paddock with it but to do anything that radical to the spinning bits of sharp steel that attach to a 2KW power source and then to take it round peoples homes and use it - nah - might even be stronger than original but something lets go and you're screwed in the eyes of the law and insurance companies - if it was just changing the boss and disc and sourcing unmodified blades of the right length OK.
What a stuff up.
Rang Bunnings the other day guy rings back says we dont have any 82v 18'' in stock but the other store does.
Ring the other store about 1700 get passed around 4 times finally to a guy who takes my name and number. Nobody rings back!!!
Today i had to mow near the other store so i call in to have a look. None available!!! Ask the girl at the desk and she taps on the computer and says OH they are in stock but we dont have them in store yet!!!!
Anyway had a look at the 21'', amazingly light not impressed with the half chute though and this is non self propelled, they must use same body for all models including the self propelled due here in next financial year
Edit: ''same body'' in the USA they are sold as Snapper and they have 19 and 21''. 21 is available as push or SP
