If you're looking for an expensive gift for the man in your life but he's the kind of guy that would rather spend time grooming the yard, rather than yachting on the ocean or admiring the premium quality materials of a high end wristwatch, what about getting him the most expensive lawnmower in the world? We were curious about which brand offered the highest priced mower and what it would look like. It really came as no surprise when we learned that John Deere, famous for their lines of tractors and implements came in first place. There weren't any gold plated editions, just a common sense, ruggedly built edition in the characteristic deep green with yellow trim. As it turns out, the most expensive lawn mower in the world is the John Deere X758.
A Closer look at the John Deere X758
When only the best will do for maintaining your lawn, you can visit a John Deere dealer to order your new lawnmower. You might need to pre-arrange for financing to get the best interest rate. No kidding, it's a lot like buying a new car because the ultimate lawn mower is going to set you back about $25,000 but it's a luxury that could pay for itself in a few years if you have an acre of lawn to care for or better.
How could a lawn mower be worth $25,000?
