You may be wondering why it takes so long to get your lawn mowed. In an effort to prove that it doesn’t have to take so long, Honda broke the Guinness World Record for the fastest lawnmower by reaching 100 miles per hour in just 6.285 seconds.
The record had a few requirements. First, it had to actually look like a lawnmower. But looks weren’t enough, it actually had to mow grass as well. Over the course of two runs, the mower was able to set an average breaking the 100-miles-per-hour mark. The first run hit 100 miles per hour in 6.4 seconds, topping out 108 miles per hour. The second run was even faster, hitting 100 miles per hour in 6.1 seconds and topping out at 110 miles per hour.
The team didn’t just stop there, however. Using a longer course, they topped the speed out at 150.99 miles per hour.
The mower was driven by stunt driver and kart and car racer Jess Hawkins. Designed by Honda and Team Dynamics, the Mean Mower V2 uses a 999cc four-cylinder engine that was originally intended for Honda’s CBR1000RR Fireblade SP motorcycle—an engine that can produce 200 brake horsepower.
So if your lawn is taking too long to mow, there is hope out there. Though a 100-mile-per-hour mow might not be the best option.
