Since I'm a noob in this.
I've wondered when do you guys stop calling it a lawn mower or tractor?

Driven by a belt
No individual suspension
Stock Engine
Turf Tyres

Or just a Tractor / Mower hood and fender?

I suppose Mowercross would fall under the Enduro category.

Mine is built for that, except faster.

I guess Rally Tractor would fall under Enduro.
