This mod adds a ride on lawn tractor that can cut grass, collect grass, crops and much more.
Do you hate manually punching all the grass around your base? Well then the ride on lawn mower is a perfect vehicle for you. Cut all the grass around your base with ease! What started as a small Proof of concept has grown into a feature rich Mod, that should satisfy a few of your farming sim desires. We’ve added a few treats here and there to make it a better overall experience.
Needs to be installed client and server side. And both need EAC (Easy Anti-Cheat) to be turned off! There is no server-side only version of this mod as it contains custom code. This mod needs to be installed on both client and server for multiplayer.
This placeable vehicle is unlocked either by finding (or buying) the schematics for the chassis and the accessories, or by unlocking Grease Monkey Level 3. In its base configuration, it can only remove grass and bushes, but doesn’t collect any items. Once you equip your first Lawn Tractor, a journal entry will be added.
- Grass cutting functionality
- Grass/Bush collecting
- Basic plant collecting
- Planted crop harvesting
- Player crop reseeding
- Can be dyed
Toggling Lawn Tractor Features
In order to enable the mowing/harvesting, you have to press F. The function will toggle alternating with the light, so to only toggle mowing/harvesting, press it twice.
This is the simplest modifier that you should be able to get quite early. It will only collect items from grass and bushes, and the yield will be significantly lower than when harvesting by hand/tool. You can get a fully functional grass collector from harvesting pristine lawn mowers. Otherwise you can find or buy the schematics, or unlock Living Off the Land Level 1.
With this modifier you will also harvest and collect items from various other small plants, like cotton, coffee or mushrooms. Yield is also significantly lower than when harvested by hand/tool. You can get a fully functional plant collector from harvesting pristine lawn mowers. Otherwise you can find or buy the schematics, or unlock Living Off the Land Level 2.
Upgrade for the plant collector, that gives much better yield, a bit less when harvested by hand/tool though. It should be able to collect every growing crop and also gives seeds back. You can get a fully functional plant collector from harvesting pristine lawn mowers. Otherwise you can find or buy the schematics, or unlock Living Off the Land Level 3.
Basic mod that protects all player plants, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally mowing down your own plants when tidying up the surroundings. You can get a fully functional plant collector from harvesting pristine lawn mowers. Otherwise you can find or buy the schematics, or unlock Advanced Engineering Level 2.
Upgrade for the crop protector, that will automatically reseed player plants when harvesting. Seeds must be filled into the vehicle inventory, as you will not get enough seeds back from harvesting mostly. Speed for harvesting and reseeding has been limited to make it a bit more realistic and to make it not too overpowered.
There are 3 different damage level variations of the Lawn Tractor, which all come in 7 different colours, so 21 new randomly placed vehicles in the world. They can all be harvested for parts and give the same resources as regular cars, plus a few additional items. Pristine Lawn Tractors have a good chance to drop either a fully functional modifier part or one of the other rare resources you need to build the recipes. A damaged Lawn Tractor sill has a small chance to give you a rare resource for the recipes, while a wrecked vehicle will only give the usual scrap that cars would give you.

Great! I’m sure I’ll use it for hours. 🙂
This thing is awesome, and actually kind of silly fun.
Would be nice to have option for small stones and bird nests as well.
I keep getting a “null reference” error when I try to place the mower. Any suggestions?
Have you turned off EAC?
Love this mod, but an option to collect the plants or grass you cut would really spruce it up; so when the grass / plants are cut, they’re transferred into the bin on the back (vehicle inventory).
Hi, the mod has been updated to support harvesting now 🙂
no matter what i do i can not get the mod added to the server. its in but the server and clinet and still not showing in the game
Do you have EAC turned off on the client and the server?
Hi, the mod has been updated to support harvesting now.
I can’t get this thing to work. I am able to build it and all the mods but it just rolls around silent and doesn’t do anything. Tried hitting “F” and every other button for that matter. Any advice?
did you put gas into it?
Dude shut up! I have not, wtf. I’m so stupid. It didn’t occur to me cause it started moving fairly fast empty. My bad man. GJ!
This has been needed in the base game since 1.0
it doesn’t work for me 🙁 i get some Xui errors spammed in the console when trying to see the item
Can you join my discord from the support link on this page, so I can help you fix it?
i made it work. it seems it was the multi loader failing to load. i deleted ULM and DF files and left only the A20 ones.
I really do like the mod, although it’s just so absurd how it replaces most cars in the worlds random spawns with lawn tractors.
oh! thank you!
It seems like a good Mod. I think you’ve balanced the build cost well. My question is: Why did you nerf the output? You say they are lower than hand work. I use the lawnmower because it improves over pushing a 4-blade blade, reel mower. I should think the mower should return at least the same amount of loot as hand usage would? (just faster at it)
It’s like that for balance reasons.
Hiába tszem fel a vetés modotrá nem veti újra a magokat tudna valaki segíteni köszönöm
Having an issue with 2.0.4 and not being able to harvest any grass. Tried the discord link but it gave me an error. (Whoops, Unable to Accept Invite)
Love the concept of the mod.
I figured it out. I had accidentally pressed F before getting it into the grass and shut off the lawn mowing in the process.
