With the arrival of the spring season comes pollen, buzzing bees and growing grass. While many may dread the various lawn care duties that arrive with warm weather, Husqvarana, along with Lowe’s and Jimmie Johnson, have teamed up to make mowing the lawn a less daunting task. Husqvarna recently released the innovative Fast Tractor™ which can reach speeds up to 7 to 8 mph thanks to a new F7 hydrostatic transmission. The Fast Tractor™ includes comfort features like an ergonomic steering wheel, armrests, and a high back seat. The Fast Tractor™ is the fastest riding mower in it’s class, so it only seemed logical for Jimmie Johnson and Team Lowe’s Racing, one of the fastest teams in NASCAR, to join forces for the Husqvarna Fast Tractor™ product launch. Through this partnership, Jimmie Johnson stars in a national commercial highlighting how the Fast Tractor’s™ speed allows him to have more time for fun spring festivities, such as hosting barbeques and pool parties.
In addition to the national commercial, Husqvarna has also tapped into the gaming world through partnering with Jimmie Johnson’s Anything With An Engine video game! Husqvarna created a brand-inspired character for the video game, Husky Hank, a landscaper turned stock car racer after he accidentally won a race on his tractor. Husky Hank has rough and tough racing features such as being able to throw axes and plant tree stumps to slow down the competition.
Are you itching to get your hands on a controller and experience Husky Hank in action? He’ll be on display at the Fast Tractor™ Launch event on April 14th at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, NC. The event will be held as a viewing party of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race in Texas. Attendees will have the opportunity to check out the Fast Tractor™, Jimmie Johnson’s commercial spot featuring the Husqvarna Fast Tractor™, and sample Jimmie Johnson’s Anything With An Engine while mingling with other NASCAR fans and Husqvarna enthusiasts.
