German term or phrase: Entwicklungsschleifen
document on lawnmower engines:
"... and dadurch die Gefahr von zeitintensiven zusaetzlichen Entwicklungsschleifen verringern."

English translation:development loops
Explanation:
This term doesn't specifically have anything to do with lawnmower engines, but rather with product development in general. A development loop is the staged process of design/implementation/testing (with possible substages), and one pass through this sequence is a 'loop' (term borrowed from software engineering). Naturally, if you make a mistake or overlook something and have to interate the process, it takes additional time.
