thank you for your advice, there are many questions i would like to have asked. I didnt want to make it too long that people didnt have time to answer fully and i was restricted to the amount of questions i could ask without purchasing an account.

 

Thank you very much

I would greatly appreciate it if people could complete my quick questionaire on the use of their current lawn mowers.

It is made up of two parts

Part 1  http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/9P3FVNP

Part 2  http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DVZYCBN

Thank you very much

Luke

I am still reading all of your comments and this is the exact research I need to justify my re-design. Your comments are helping me to think about soloutions and features which have never crossd my mind.

Thanks

Hi,

I'm a keen gardener but also a mature student in my final year of a product design degree.


I am going to re-design the lawnmower because I feel it has some fundamental flaws in the way it was designed and has never been changed or adjusted, just modernised.


The main problem I see with the current design is its manoeuvrability and its inability to move in any direction that isn't forwards or backwards in a straight line.

Does every one have straight edges of their garden or flower beds, doing that silly dance at the end of your garden to turn it round. This dance consists of a 20 point turn or struggling to drag the mower round to head back down your garden. Would it be a good idea to have a lawn mower than can go in any direction, maybe turn on the spot or move like a car or one of the large expensive lawn mowers?

Other flaws i believe the lawn mower possess:
Electric mowers wire trailing behind
Cleaning and maintenance
weight of the mower
Turning the grass into a useful source for gardening such as mulching and cutting down on the amount of garden waste we create as a nation (this option would reduce the weight of the mower because you wouldn't be carrying any grass cuttings around in a box on the mower)
cutting close to trees, ponds, flower beds or any garden ornaments

Could you please list any problems or issues you have with lawn mowers as they are now, in appearance, the use of and maintenance and cleaning and power source?

Please could you contribute any ideas or features you feel a re-designed lawn mower should posses.

Any ideas or comments you have on this would be greatly appreciated
