Student Design Project
#1

Hello I am a university student working on my major project aiming to design a less straining and more convenient cordless electric mower particularly in manoeuvring but as well as storing and emptying grass - with the aim of making cutting the lawn a more enjoyable task. If anyone could provide a response to any of the questions below that would be greatly appreciated.

 

  • Do you have any thoughts on the brief?
  • Do you find your mower hard work to use?
  • where do you store your mower?
  • How do you get it out of storage? and transport it to lawn?
  • From your experience is there any feature you wish a lawnmower had? 
  • Does anyone who bought a cordless mower wish they hadn’t?
  • I have considered moving the battery central of two large back wheels to minimise pushing force - are there any problems that might occur with this?
  • what features do people like on their mowers? compared to other mowers they’ve had
  • what would you look for in a mower if buying one now? particularly elderly users?
  • what parts of cutting the lawn do you least look forward to?
  • would a drastically different design deter you from buying?
  • do you ever have safety worries when using your mower?

I remember what I'd forgotten but can't remember why I needed to

07] less of an issue if it is a dedicated mulch mower or is a side discharge with an optional mulch plug
