New Firestorm



Well it has a Firestorm engine anyway. Honda has gone mad and made a 109BHP lawn mower, known as the Mean Mower; with a mixture of parts, from a Morris Minor steering rack to a set wheels from an ATV, it’s a bit of a parts special, but that’s not say it’s rubbish. A pair of electric motors spin 3mm cutting cable at 4000RPM, allowing grass cutting action up to 15MPH. We’re not really sure what it has set out to prove, but it is nice to know Honda do occasionally take of their sensible trousers and do something ridiculous. imagine ripping round on a lawn mower doing over 100mph.
