Pilchuck “Green” Riding Lawnmower

Check out the “riding lawnmower” that can only be described as green to the second power—human power that is.   21 Acres’ Sustainable Event Specialist, Jane McClure, had to try the newly constructed hybrid lawn-bike at her sister’s Pilchuck river-front property over the 4th of July weekend.

Granite Falls resident, Craig Petite, fashioned the lawn-bike from parts and equipment he found in his yard and brought it over for his neighbors, Paul and Mickey Mansell, and their family to try out.

Everyone agreed it’s a clever, fossil fuel-free, fun way to mow, however, a bit of work to perfect: The front push-mower steering might make all the difference.

Ed Begley Jr’s bike powered toaster is another fun idea in keeping with the Pilchuck Riding Mower. Tell us if you’ve tried something fun like this!
