Default NEW Landspeed record 80.72mph

That is 80.72 mph on a Cub Cadet lawnmower.

And not a damn blade of grass in site to mow. What the hell good is it if it can't mow something?

It does seem odd to test it on the salt flats.

Just imagine being passed by a riding mower. It would make you swear off drinking. I'd like to have 1 just for that.

It isn't really a Lawnmower, Put the deck on and cut some grass and then let me know how fast it is.

Only in the USA would we race a lawnmower where we run cars that go 400+ mph. My dad holds 2 landspeed records.

I like it, everyone needs a hobby and most of us hate cutting the grass. The image of a custom mower would make it a little fun. Then again that speed it a bit much for most lawns.
