Default 116mph Honda Mower...

Interesting.... This would be a fun ride...
Wonder if JD would come out with something like this ??
Most likely not.... But a green and yellow model will be diesel, and pull a bigger load than any other model in that size class...

Enjoy

I think I posted this the last time they set a record.
Funny how they left the deck on it !
Now if I could just mow my yard at a hundred miles an hour I'd be done in less than a minute!

Mow my yard in 1 minute at 100mph....
Bwahahahahaha....

I think trying to make those tight turns around the flower bed and house would do you in on that little quest....

But fun to watch....

I think when they run racing lawn tractors they have to leave the deck on... But can take off the blades, spindles, belts and all the other stuff... Just an empty shell for the deck....
I'm too big to be able to go fast on something like that....
And heal up to slowly and painfully.....
Enjoy

The deck might as well be taken off to, because it sure is not going to cut any grass with such a ground speed.

If Honda wants to build a race car, let them go for it. But wasting time and money in building a racing lawn mower, while driving up the price of their other products to the consumer, does not really impress me. In fact it tends to actually turn me off, but I was never interested in racing in the first place.

Wyobuckaroo,


I got a good laugh; someone on the site said he could now cut his yard/lawn in 6 seconds, LOL.

I guess you'd have to wear a helmet to cut grass.

Looks like something Tim Taylor would have built on the old "Home Improvement" show...if you remember that.
