All Bobby Cleveland wanted was to drive the fastest lawnmower in the world. And last weekend, he took his easy rider all the way to 154km/h. Here's the bastard child of John Deere and Speed Racer in action.
Cleveland's previous personal best of 130km/h had been the record mark until the UK's Don Wales ripped an 157km/h run last May. So this wasn't just a gratuitous display of lawnmower muscle; it was a patriotic gratuitous display of lawnmower muscle. Your country thanks you, Bobby Cleveland.
Although should these records be set on actual lawns? [CNET]
