Hayter lawn mowers: Looks like…works like

For over 75 years, Hertfordshire-based Hayter has focused on innovation and exceptional craftsmanship to offer lawnmowers with superior performance and lasting durability. 

It challenged our reputation for creating prototypes that support world-class design consultancies with a request for a pair of prototype lawnmowers (one petrol and one electric) that would look like the real thing and run with a blade but also cut grass. 

We met the challenge and created prototypes with multiple CNC-machined components that would be machined in the correct materials for the best chance of success. What could be more faithful to the design and manufacturing materials without tooling?

The production colours were made using our paint mixing system and applied to the mouldings, gloss, and textured finishes. Once the prototypes were assembled and cutting the lawn, who could tell they were not the real thing? We met the challenge with creative yet practical solutions.
