Project Runningblade: 100 MPH Lawnmower (video)

Lawn grooming isn’t one of those top of mind conversations, or blog posts for that matter, but in the case of the project Runningblade it’s most certainly worth a look.  If you couldn’t tell it’s suped-up lawn mower that has the potential to hit 100mph.  Potential because that’s a record – the current world record is 80mph – and on May 23rd the team behind the project will try to achieve that speed.  Before you poo-poo it as a wolf in sheep’s clothing, the lawn grooming tool is powered by a Kawasaki V-twin engine, which according to Autoblog is in fact designed for cutting grass. Now…this could be one of those concept designs with daylight between prototype hype and marketable production, but it wins our lawn mower speed tests hands down.
