Honda has announced that their Honda Mean Mower is now the worlds fastest lawnmower, it recently broke the Guinness World record for the worlds fastest lawnmower.
The Honda Mean Mower comes with 109HP, and it hit an averga speed of 187.60km/h or 116.57mph, the previous record was for 140km/h or 87mph.
The speed was measured through a 100 metre speed trap, overseen by official timers, Timing Solutions Limited. To meet Guinness World Records regulations the mower had to record the same run, in both directions, within an hour – with the average speed taken of these two runs. Additionally, to qualify for the record it needed to cut grass and to look like a lawnmower; both of which it did successfully. With all of these criteria met, the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS Adjudicator officially declared the success of the record attempt just before 18:00 CET on Saturday 8th March.
The Honda Mean Mower was driven by Piers Ward from the BBC’s Top Gear magazine, have a look at the video below.
