The World’s Fastest Lawn Mower Honda HF2620

Honda UK has teamed up with British touring car championship partner, Team Dynamics, to create the world’s fastest lawn mower. The re-engineered Honda HF2620 lawn tractor is conceived from the ground-up with an all-new fabricated chassis, outfitted with a 1000cc engine from a honda VTR firestorm that produces 109 horsepower. With this, the grass trimmer can reach 0-100km/h (0-62 mph) in just four seconds, with a top speed of 208km/h (130mph). the garden toy is supplemented with a custom-made paddle shift six-speed gearbox, paired with a custom-made cobra sports seat, a scorpion exhaust system and a morris minor steering rack. Along with a bespoke suspension and wheels from an ATV, the “mean mower” still can – thanks to two electric motors on the cutter deck – mow the lawn at around 24km/h (15mph) with spinning 3mm steel cutting cable at 4000rpm.

The Husqvarna Panthera Leo Concept Mower

Husqvarna, the global leader of outdoor power products, has developed a quiet, powerful and environmentally friendly ride-on mower for the future garden. The mower has three separate cutters and can achieve a cutting width of 33- to 47-inches. The batteries can power the mower for up to 2 hours before needing to be recharged and an onboard LCD displays not only the battery life, but also speed, blade height, cutting width, and general info about the grass. Unfortunately, Husqvarna says that it will have something similar on the market within 5 years.
