If you resides in a four-season country and has a yard and/or driveway, then you will understand what it needs to upkeep them. Four-season means up keeping is all year around affair.

Cub Cadet RZT S ZERO Mower

finding yourself leaving corners of untrimmed lawn after you thought you already did thorough passes? well, blame on the steering and go get yourself a Cub Cadet RZT S ZERO Mower and start conquering tight corners and even maneuvering among trees. being able to mow around the tightest corners is just one of the many qualities cos’ obviously, the RZT S ZERO is much more; it is fully electric, which means there is no engine noise, no emissions, no use of harmful gas and oil, and no belts and filters to deal with. heck, you can even mow your lawn in the middle of the night if you choose to because this mean machine is basically noiseless. the only downside of mowing at odd hours is, your neighbors might think your are complete nuts, but who cares if you can?

Honda Mean Mower

when it comes to lawn mower, a little brute horsepower won’t hurt, but speed is almost never on the agenda. but the Honda Mean Mower you see here, defies the convention. developed in collaboration with Team Dynamics, Honda UK’s British Touring Car Championship partner, this lean mean lawn trimmer puts out 109 horses and 96 Nm of torque from its 1,000cc Honda VTR Firestorm and is fitted with six-speed gearbox which enables it to sprint from 0-60 mph in just 4 seconds and well on its way to a 133 mph (214 km/h) top speed. while externally, it retains the Honda HF2620 Lawn Tractor body that it is based on, other bits are all but new. it is given an all-new custom chromoly chassis, a Scorpion exhaust system (that gives it the incredible 130db scream at its peak), a Morris Minor steering rack, a custom-made paddle shift, a custom-made Cobra sports seat (no harness though), a bespoke suspension and ATV wheels wrapped in super-soft tires for optimum grip and handling on tarmac.

impressed by Honda’s ASIMO robot? too bad you can’t own one to wait on you but come 2013, another Honda robot, the Miimo, will be serving the folks in Europe with one specialized chore: lawn mowing. yes, you heard that right. Honda is ready to make its robotic lawn mower commercially available to anyone who is willing to pay the price. apart from its obvious sleek low-profile lines, the Miimo is packed with features that you expect from a modern day robotic lawn mower including operation within a boundary wire, 360-degree ‘bump’ sensors for obstacle detection, and lift sensors that shuts down the robot completely when the unit is lifted – after which, a PIN authentication is required for reactivating the unit.

when we first caught glimpse of the MowBot, we taught it was awesome and we lay down our search for the perfect (and stylish) robot for our feature here but alas, we haven’t seen all yet. meet the LawnBott SpyderEVO. with the exception of the brand name, you might just mistaken it for a sports car’s model but of course, it isn’t. it is yet another robot infiltration that we are witnessing this lifetime with the capability of handling up to 10,000 sq. ft. (930 sq. m.) and thanks to its built-in bump sensors and the use of perimeter wire, it can be let loose in your yard to complete the otherwise backbreaking chore.

funny that i have stumbled upon this lawn tractor just after i have slogged through mowing the lawn yesterday. so this is something that a guy who did a backbreaking chore would dream of. meet the The Craftsman CTX Lawn Tractor that’s destined to hit the stores come this February for a premium sum of between $3,000 to $6,500. astronomical sum for a lawn mower but just look again, this is not your run-of-the-mill mower but one that is certain to uphold your style-factor even when you are doing your grass trimming chore. at the heart of the CTX is a 30-horsepower motor mated to a hydrostatic auto gearbox that is good for up to 8 mph forward speed and 3 mph, going the opposite way.
