    Imagine not having to get out and shovel sidewalks any more? How about having a fleet of robot plows at your command? I found this pic on lawn site. Enjoy:drinkup: :drinkup: :drinkup:

    Back after the blizzard of 96, NBC news did a short piece on a guy with a remote controlled Bobcat 763. He would sit in his warm truck and clear driveways. I video taped the piece, but I can't find it now. It's in a box at my mother's house.

    Back then he said the set up cost him about $20K to produce. It had some type of safety that would shut it down if it got out of range of the controller.

    this must be the power version of the shovel on wheels that was on e-bay, discussed in another thread.
