Woe betide any Appalachian tiger swallowtails who get caught up in this ungodly four-foot flailhead. Moving to higher ground won't save them either, because Robocut's 40hp Isuzu diesel engine and high grip tracks can chew up 55-degree slopes without ever pausing to contemplate. The bargain price?

Sure, we've been living in a series of safe houses and seedy motels since 1968, but that doesn't mean that you can't have nice things. A two-car garage, white picket fence, and a healthy lawn: that's the American Dream, right there. But with all that middle class comfort comes responsibility -- and

Good news for unmanned lawnmower enthusiasts (we know there are at least two of you out there).

With the price of gas these days, it's no wonder people are skittish when it comes to mowing lawns. What's more, gas-powered mowers have been shown to pollute up to 7 times as much as vehicles. Sure, you could go get a manual mower and get some exercise, but why do that when you can convert your ga

Robotic lawn mowers have been keeping yards tidy for their masters for a good while now, but Husqvarna is looking to teach an old robot new tricks with its Automower. As expected, the grass muncher is ultra-quiet and outputs zero emissions, and you can even program it to take off and get to work wh

First Roomba, then came Scooba, next up: an iRobot lawnbot? Well, according to a Forbes profile of everybody's favorite domestic-botmaker, iRobot's working on a bomb sniffer to round out its compliment of functional droids, as well as \"a robot lawn mower.\" Yep, another one of those things. So, what
