Prior to challenging the current record holder of the world’s fastest lawn mower held by Norwegian Per-Kristian Laundefaret in a modified Viking T6 mower, Honda has brought its 2018 Honda Mean Mower V2 to Goodwood to showoff what it got. Thanks to the good folks over at Goodwood Road & Racing and the existence of YouTube, we get to see it in action and boy, was it pretty damn surreal. I mean, it is not everyday you see a lawn mower going at speeds, isn’t it? Continue reading Watch The World’s Fastest Lawn Mower Does The Goodwood Hillclimb

This Is Honda UK’s Contender For An Even Faster Lawn Mower…

Yes. You heard that right. There’s a race for the faster lawn mower. OK. Maybe not, but it is true that Honda UK seems to have a thing for the need for speed… on the lawn.

Honda Mean Mower V2 is Honda UK’s bet in regaining its title as the fastest lawn mower and while it clearly is a ride-on grass trimmer, its design appears to be more track-focus. Yes. Lawn mower.

So, you have a bunch of exotic rides stashed in the barn-turned-garage at your ranch? Nice. But you can’t really take those darlings through the rough of the ranch’s sometimes rather unforgiving terrains, do you? You could bag yourself a Land Rover to do that sort of things, but is a Land Rover a name in exotic rides? No, but this 1955 Lamborghini DL25 Tractor from Lamborghini Trattori surely is. Okay. It is not quite an exotic you expect, but it is the legit cousin of the Miuras and Countachs, and so, it is totally a Lamborghini. Wait, what? Yep.

Case IH Autonomous Farming Tractor Concept Is The Future Of Farming

We Bet You Never Thought A Tractor Could Be A Red Dot Design Awardee

Think Red Dot Design Award and the few things that come to mind would be gadgets, furniture and mainly stuff that the general population can relate to. Granted that we never scour the entire award recipients directory, but we are not going to lie; we never knew a thing as ‘mundane’ as an agricultural tractor could ever be recognized in the product design category, much less any category. As it turns out Red Dot Design is not biased; if its a design beauty, it has a shot of being awarded, tractor or not. As a matter of fact, it just happened to two particular tractors from two of the five core brands of agricultural solution provider, Georgia-based AGCO.

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.
