Bike Mowers

Tree Hugger posted on Bike Mowers last week (thanks for the tip Paul), including this one from Eastern Washington sent in by Montana Mike. Amazingly, that post still get hits, a few serious comments, and pedal-powered mowers are apparently growing in popularity.

Always on top of the urban bike trends, maybe we should design and manufacture a hugga mower.


This was my first thought after posting about the InnovateOrDie content (

Of all the machines that polute, 2 stroke lawnmowers are among the worst, and the most easily replaced. Any pedal powered machine that replaces your old Toro is doing a mountain more good that commuting to work on a bike.

Definitely Yes on making the pedal mower bike. But why stop there?
* Leaf blowers are not just an evironmentally bad, they’re a sonic danger as well.
* Same for weed whackers.

unfortunately these don’t lend themselves so well to a bicycle mount. Hmmm.

The hugga whacka, a propeller device attached to a Nexus hub that whacks—all brings me to a whole Road Warrior, thunderdome theme.
