The Super Mower

The grass in our "yard" has gotten a little out of hand.
Bring out the Super Mower!
Actually, the new MoCo (mower-conditioner) belongs to our neighbors, and their teenage son can't wait to make hay with this fancy-dan machine.   It has headlights, air conditioning, and an on-board GPS guidance system.  This baby will go up to 12 mph, and if programmed to turn at the fence lines, there is no steering required.  Amazing, isn't it?

  3. That is some piece of equipment! I wish we had had something like this when I was working in the fields as a youngster baling hay in the summer heat.

  5. Does that come in a mini-me size? A teenage family member was ask to whack down the grasses/weeds (with pay) about 3 wks ago...well I guess if we had one of them in a mini size he would have been done with it...*sigh*

  6. Hi Janie, this is truly a super slasher. The horses will be happy to get their noses into the fresh hay!
    since we had our slasher on the farm there have been some great improvements!

  12. That is one mega machine. I'm sure it will mow down that tall grass with no problem.

  13. WOW! That grass is almost as tall as you, Janie! Doesn't anybody use a plain old tractor anymore? (GPS - where is he driving that thing?)

  18. Wow, what an amazing machine! I know a lot of guys who would love to have that...except we live in the mountains where there is hardly any flat land!

  19. GPS on a mower? Well, hay can get pretty high, can't it? It IS possible the driver might get lost. :)

    Air conditioning sounds mighty GOOD!

  20. Impressive machine. When I read the title super mower, I thought I would see a herd of horses in that overgrown pasture! I wonder what our Amish neighbors would think of that MoCo.....

  23. I've never seen such a gigantic machine in my whole life! I'm truly amazed at the knowledge of how people can invent such a thing!
