Linear Actuator questions

Hello I am trying to automate my lawnmower so that I don’t have mow the lawn anymore, and I wanted to use a linear actuator to control the bakes on the mower. I would like to know what the best kind would be for my use.


That sounds like a potentially dangerous project that we would not be comfortable helping you design, and in particular, we do not recommend our parts be used in applications where their failure could result in injury or property damage. If this is something you want to proceed with, I strongly suggest you get an expert to help you with the implementation to make sure the result is sufficiently safe.
