I could see a niche market for someone who's mowing heavy slopes with it. I used my push mower to do the front hill, which is about 35-36 degrees. The wheels couldn't pull up the hill, and sideways, the back end was several inches lower on the hill than the front.

I am retrofitting AWD onto my radio control mower this year for better traction on that hill.

radio control + robot drive board + wheelchair motors + mower. Although it works well, it could use some improvements.

Early test setup here. I changed over to snowblower tires. It will drive straight up the 35 degree slope no problem. With the drive wheels in the back, and front casters, it doesn't like to go sideways. It will, but hard to keep straight. Track drive would be nice, but there aren't a lot of good options for tracks, and the RPM of these motors is a little low.

Go mow a nice healthy thick lawn with a cheap 4hp motor, then go and push the same lawn with a 7hp motor and report back.

Or think of one way to wear out rod bearings (Load up and lug a motor down), then go mow the same lawn thinking about that....

Or think about how much use a commercial pushmower may see in its life and compare the longevity of a 4 hp push mower and a 7 hp.
