Before long, winters with snow will be little more than a memory. Instead of speeding up this process by adding more CO2 to the atmosphere with your outdated gas-powered snowblower, maybe look into this Li-iON battery-powered model. It runs 25-40 minutes on a charge, is whisper quiet, and produces no air pollution. via
It goes 0-60 in 4 seconds with a top speed of 130MPH. 6-speed paddle shift transmission. Under the bonnet, a heavily modified 1000cc motor. Amazingly, it will still cut the grass. Honda teamed up with their British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) partner Team Dynamics to create the world’s fastest functioning lawnmower. Question is, will Mean Mower actually go into production? We sure hope so.
If you’re one of those old school guys who for no good reason refuses to pay another man to mow your yard, you might take a liking to this all-wheel drive Husky. This Honda-powered 22” push mower is built for all-terrain, off-road action and since the AWD does all the work, you’re not really “pushing” you’re just walking behind it.
It didn’t take long to figure out that the five hundred dollar Brooklyn-made chrome axe sucked for actual use, and now you need something to get the wood chopped. This 5-ton electric splitter will do it. It goes through logs up to 20-inches in diameter like a hot knife through butter powered by a 15 amp electric motor. Source
Some people love pushing a mower around the yard – others hate it. If you lean towards the latter, let John Deere do it for you. The Tango E5 is their newest fully automatic electric mower. While you have a Saturday that actually feels like a day off, the E5 will mow everything inside the boundary wire without ever getting cranky or rifling down a 6-pack in the mid-day sun. Available in Europe. Why Europe first, John?
How valuable are your weekends? The correct answer is WAY too valuable to spend them pushing a smoke-spewing mower back and forth. The LawnBott 1500 SpyderEvo is a robot mower powered by a Lithium-Ion battery that will mow your yard for up to 3.5 hours per charge. Not only that, when it’s done, it’ll dock itself back on the charging station & be ready to get back to work after a 2-3 hour recharge.
We Americans have surely earned our reputation as the world’s fattest & laziest country. On the other hand we like to think of ourselves as the most innovative, too. The RoboReel brings these two convergent views together. Their motorized hose and extension cord reels totally eliminate effort but you have to admit that’s a great idea.
This lightweight aluminum garden cart from Garrett Wade lets you push up to 330-lbs. of cargo around and dump your load anywhere you want. It is also fully collapsible so when you’re done with the job you can flatten it down for easy, space-saving storage.
Since winter doesn’t seem to be coming this year, you should be thinking about that new mower you’re going to need come Spring. The forthcoming CTX from Craftsman is a solid choice. It cuts grass like a mofo and comes equipped with automatic traction control, electronic fuel management, cruise control and a dash-mounted beer holder. What else do you really need to know?
Honda’s Civic and Insight hybrids are doing nothing to evolve the hybrid car from its current status as the dorky weakling of the freeway. But Honda is the first to introduce a hybrid snowblower. Like the cars, a gas engine charges back-up batteries for the electric drivetrain however, unlike the cars, this thing looks like it’s actually got some nuts. Source
