WIld Lawn Mower Engine Swaps That Will Make You Scratch Your Head

If it has wheels, there’s a good chance that someone, somewhere, will be willing to build it. Heck, lots of combinations don’t even need to have wheels to get going but, when the resident gear head gets their hands on just about anything, you never know what’s going to come of it. This time, the vehicle of choice is none other than a lawn mower. That’s right, we’re tackling the machines that are traditionally used to cut your grass on a Sunday afternoon but this time, instead of being nothing more than grass cutting machines, they have been repurposed to be a little bit more muscular than you might expect them to be capable of.
In this one, we see everything from motorcycle engines to big and bad v8 power plants plucked straight from muscle cars and plopped into these various lawn mowers that never saw it coming. To say that these setups are obscure would be a bit of an understatement because some of these things really cross the line and take modification to a whole new level. As each new swap comes to the screen, you really don’t know what to expect next as mower after mower come onto your screen, each boasting a different means of power that you probably had no good reason to expect was coming.
Where some of these ideas come from, we can’t really be sure but they certainly are entertaining.
As you watch these mowers in action, it really seems like the more obscure that each one gets, the better! It’s pretty neat to see how different ideas and know-how come together in one to really show off what some of these creators are capable of. The Internet really is a neat place to unleash all these different ideas as they all come together in a video like this that shows off the obscure bit of action.
