TopGear drives giant lawn mower
For serious, manly grass cutting there’s only one option – the 18.5-tonne Claas Cougar 1400

Through an uncompromising mix of speed, power and bowel-loosening scale, the Cougar will turn prairie to putting green in less time than it takes most of us to find the keys to the shed. Around 50 acres per hour in fact, which is roughly like mowing Wembley once a minute. And that makes this the agricultural equivalent of the Bugatti Veyron. By the time the rest of us are yanking impotently at our pull starts, the Cougar owner is eyeing up other continents for a bit of cash-in-hand.
