Sport Mowing!!!!

Honda UK will once again attempt to build the world's fastest lawn mower. This time it's called Mean Mower V2. The original Mean Mower was able to hit 116 mph to set the world record in 2013, and that was with a 109-horsepower engine. The mad minds at Honda UK are aiming for something higher, though: 150 mph.

Loud pipes don't cut grass
Slow and smooth keeps the lawn smooth.

Besides at that speed the catch bag would be full before one could get out of second gear. Another thought is this really a "Mower" or just a scaled down quad, hard to tell in the crappy light of the vid, does this thing actually have a blade there to trim the grass?  Is it a really a "mower" at all?

You'd want a mulcher, not a bagger. Baggers are for old people..

Sorry missed that. Carbon fiber blades,  very high tech bet they get expensive every time thy hit the hidden sprinkler

Sorry just can't wrap my head around this. Yes it is cool and looks fun but why a mower, why not call it a high seat mini tractor
