This man is obviously quite interested in the length of his lawn, something that many of us will be in the not-too-distant future:
But the point is not the man or the lawn, but the mower.
Actually a Honda HF2620 Lawn Tractor that was reengineered. Reengineered with a custom-made 4130 chromoly chassis. With a fiber-glass deck. With a suspension and wheels from a Honda all-terrain vehicle. With a 1,000-cc engine from a Honda VTR Firestorm motorcycle.
The mower weighs 308 lb.
That said, it does cut grass. There are two electric motors located on the cutter deck that spin a 3-mm cutting cable at 4,000 rpm. Which would make quick work of one’s lawn.
And quick is the point of this mower.
It is the world’s fastest lawnmower according to Guinness. It averaged 116.57 mph in a run last month at the IDIADA Proving Ground in Tarragona, Spain.
It is setup to have a top speed of 130 mph.
Could it be that they have too much time on their hands?
