Video: The number of bad ideas on the internet far outweighs the good, and making art by tossing cans of spraypaint into the spinning blades of a running lawnmower falls into that former category.

A Riding Mower That Transforms Into An ATV Is All Work And All Play

Riding mowers and ATVs can cost as much as a decent used car, but expensive or not, they’re a must-have accessory if you have to maintain a large piece of property.

A Badass Remote Tank Mower That Could Probably Clear A Forest

Remote-controlled lawnmowers are far from a new idea. People have been cutting grass from the comfort of a lawn chair for years now.

That’s a chunk of change, though certainly more realistic than $3000+ for their other models. The 305 is designed for gardens 500m² or less, and uses a rechargeable battery that provides a 50 minute mow time on 2.5 hours of charge.

Amateur Lawn Striping On The Cheap

So a lack of athletic talent has led you to compensate by desiring “stripes” in your lawn. No big deal! Just pick up this relatively inexpensive striping kit from Toro and go to town on that grass.

Motorising A Manual Wheelchair With A Friggin' Lawnmower

The problem with naming our tools is that we tend to pigeonhole them. Case in point: who says a lawnmower is strictly for mowing lawns? Especially when it’s clearly equally well suited to the business of playing mighty steed to your manual wheelchair chariot.
