Mowers are usually termed as slow machines, but Honda has managed to break that image with their Mean Mower that has now officially broken the Guinness World’s title for being the fastest lawnmower that averages around 116.57 mph breaking its previous record by almost 45 kmph. Honda announced that the attempt race has taken place under the supervision of a Guinness World Records Adjudicator at the IDIADA Proving Ground in Tarragona, Spain.
The mower was steered by Piers Ward of BBC TopGear Magazine who also handled the previous fastest speed on Mean Mower that calculated around 87 mph. To calculate the speed 100 meter speed trap was used which was overseen by official timers, Timing Solutions Limited. To meet the records the mower had to record the same run in both the directions within an hour. The adjudicator would then average the speeds of both the runs and that would qualify in the records.
