Honda's 130mph lawn mower. They call it the #meanmower

This is the Honda Mean Mower.  It weighs 140kg and uses a Honda Firestorm 1 litre engine.  It is the fastest lawn mower "In The World."

Team Dynamics built the Mean Mower using a bespoke chassis and a motorcycle engine.  It has 109hp, does 0-60mph in 4 seconds and has a top speed of 130mph - but it can still cut grass.

Two steel cables, driven by electric motors, spin at 4,000rpm and can cut your lawn at up to 15mph.

However, if you want to take the Mean Mower for a spin you might be interested to know it has a 6-speed paddle shift gearbox, custom made Cobra seat, Scorpion exhaust - and a steering rack from a Morris Minor.  Uh?

The Mean Mower has been tested on a circuit.  No-one has been brave enough to take it up to the 130mph top speed yet, however they did achieve 100mph.  It's loud too - 98db at idle and 130db at 3/4 revs loud.

The Mean Mower is based on a Honda HF2620 lawn tractor and is a one-off.  Pity.
