From wondering, I'm David Brown, and this is business wars daily. Happy Friday, one and all as you look forward to you weekend to the mountain of chores you neglected during the week when you rather. No, I don't know go skydiving zip lining, or sitting a hammock reading a book than do yard work. I would will not. So sure about the skydiving part, but what if mowing the lawn was faster and more fun. We're all down for that, right? Couple of advancements from the mowing industry, just might make that possible. Sound like a race car. It's not that is the sound of Honda's mean more to speed demon that just won a place in the Guinness Book of rural records with an engine that could go from zero to one hundred miles per hour in just six seconds. It can hit top speeds of one hundred fifty miles an hour. That's so about one hundred and forty seven miles an hour faster than you can push your gas mower at a light jog. The mean mower can actually cut grass at one hundred miles an hour alas, but slow the speed fifty and it can Honda demonstrated that feet with an amusing video showing a man using walk behind mower to cut the vast acreage at Goodwood the Duke of Richmond's English castle, naturally, the one hundred nine horsepower, mean more left the proper Englishman in the dust. So if your yard is anything close to the size of the duke's estate, you might want that mean mower route of luck though there. Not for sale. Got your attention, though, right? Yeah. Yeah. That's the point Honda is fighting to keep its place, as a leader in lawnmowers eco-friendly electric grass cutters have grown up and their performance is now good enough to compete head to head with traditional gas, powered devices consumer reports compared to more from ego electric to a middle priced gas gas-powered one from Honda at close to six hundred bucks. The planet friendly ego will set you back two hundred bucks more than the Honda. But it obviously uses no gas requires less maintenance is lighter and quieter Honda's mower performs. Well, but it's so noisy that consumer reports recommends wearing hearing protection to use it electric lawnmowers like the ego still have one big challenge, though. Just like electric cars. They'll only go so far on charge. The ego will run about an hour before you have to juice it up again. So if a speed demon lawnmower isn't in your future and an electric when makes. Mowing more eco friendly but still a chore. What else could you do? Try a robot roomba the robot vacuum cleaner company promises to introduce a robot mower in Germany in the third quarter and bring it here to the US next year. But you better really hate mowing. Because it will set you back somewhere between nine hundred dollars and oh, ten thousand dollars. I think I'm just called kid down the street.
