With this, the grass trimmer can reach 0-100km/h (0-62 mph) in just four seconds, with a top speed of 208km/h (130mph). the garden toy is supplemented with a custom-made paddle shift six-speed gearbox, paired with a custom-made cobra sports seat, a scorpion exhaust system and a morris minor steering rack. Along with a bespoke suspension and wheels from an ATV, the “mean mower” still can – thanks to two electric motors on the cutter deck – mow the lawn at around 24km/h (15mph) with spinning 3mm steel cutting cable at 4000rpm.
