Can't believe this is how progress is embraced. You lot...
This buggy is marketed to:
- those in hilly areas - any Brighton residents interested ?
- grandparents - bit crickety but want to push the baba ?
And one user group (for whom this may be sensible)
- carpal tunnel sufferers / people with painful arthritis in their hands.
KatieMac - fear not about post pg blubber: The stroller can be pushed manually (phew). ... You could always see it as an extra benefit.... this thing weighs 31 pounds (about 14 kilos) so is a fair old weight. If you practice carrying that into the boot of your car 20 times per day, three times per day as per the Surgeon General's recommendations you should look swell in no time at all.
Wow! I've been saying they should make one of those for ages. Then you need a buggy board (for mum to stand on) and you're away! Fabulous. Wonder how you'd steer though?
I've had a cs both times, and been housebound afterwards because there was no way I could push the pram up our steep hill for weeks afterwards. Ds is now 8 weeks and I could manage it, just, but only if dd is co-operative and walks up. So we drive to the park at the moment...
Mind you, are you allowed to have them on the pavement in Britain? And if they had to go on the road, would they need to be taxed? I remember there was a lot of fuss about motorised scooters on the road a while ago. (thats scooter as in skateboard thing with a handle).
Hi RnB ! Get one ! Bargain at £500. Not. Still, I suppose mugaboos et al cost that much !
I think to keep the weight low, the battery range is limited to about 1 1/2 hours, but you could always push it like a normal (though heavy) stroller if you're out 'n about.
fruitful: I think max speed is 3mph so they're not really in the same league as scooters / Segways etc. etc. - they have some kind of ignition key - how crazy is that ! I can see how post cs this sort of stroller could be very useful. Perhaps there is a niche market in rentals for one month at a time...
Ameriscot: Your shredding section must be very good quality for the mulch to be so fine. The decaying grass is supposed to be excellent food for the lawn...
