A new invention that could make mowing the lawn a little easier...
Sean Cummings has been mowing lawns in New York for over 25 years, but recently he says he's been battered by the price of gas.
Cummings says it now costs him three times as much to mow a lawn as it did when he first started. In fact, he says modern landscaping is a business model completely dependent on how much it costs to fill the mowers.
Which is exactly why Jason Force invented E-Mow, the world's first self-fueled lawn mower.
E-Mow cuts lawns like other mowers, but then uses a vortex dryer to remove any water from the clippings. It then heats and pressurizes them to create pellets.
"The pellets go in the top there's a reaction fuel gas comes out the side and you can use that in an engine to create power," said Force.
Force says the technology will first be used to create alfalfa feed for livestock and then in a short time, inside commercial lawn mowers. A time Cummings says can't come soon enough.
Force guarantees the unimaginable will be coming to a lawn near you, by the end of next summer.
