People are converting riding mowers to off-roading and we want to be a part of it

I think we can all agree that there is an epidemic of people with tiny lawns who nonetheless insist on owning riding mowers. Anyone in the suburbs knows this guy, the guy who buys a John Deere lawn tractor with an extra cup holder, even if the lawn is small enough for an old-fashioned manual mower to perform flawlessly. But we’re not here to shame a bunch of quirky clippers – in fact, we’d like to introduce you to a new one.

Thanks to Jalopnik, we now know that rough terrain mowers exist. Apparently there is a set of niche reducers (to compete with every other group of grease, beer, and scar stained niche reducers) that take the old Cub Cadets and Craftsman mowers and turn them into all-terrain machines.

Do you have trouble imagining yourself? Here’s an example they cite in the story, taken from a YouTube channel called “Okoffroadmowers”:

Yes, we want one too.

If that sounds like exactly the pandemic hobby that you need this winter, Jalopnik lists a bunch of other videos where you can find inspiration. The first thing you will need to do, however, is remove the blades from the mower. These things have a pretty high flip rate (from what I’ve gathered while looking at those highlight reels) and the last thing you want is to come face to face with a spinning death blade.

So if you don’t get that new Jeep in the driveway or that Bronco voucher for Christmas, don’t worry. You can make all your off-road dreams come true in 2021 with an old riding mower you found on Nextdoor.
