Wooohooo!!!! The newest BY FAR fastest mower..

BONNEVILLE SALT FLATS, Utah -- A new speed record was set in Utah on Tuesday -- on a lawn mower.

Bob Cleveland went more than 80 mph on his lawn mower across the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Since there is no record for fastest lawn mower, Cleveland won by default.

On the downside, he won't be able to get his yard work done any faster. He said the mower doesn't cut grass, it just goes fast.
Give thanks, for all that He has given.

Only 80? Thats not very impressive really. I would take and put a large crotch rocket engine and transmission on a lawn tractor and blow the doors off his 80 mph run.

I dunno, it says he went more than 80mph...

I think that's pretty impressive, most racing mowers will do 30-40mph and maybe 50 but not 80+...

Almost looks like a stock briggs engine, but the V8 sticker is bs, he should've chosen something like GT+ or something, oh well, it's cool.
