World's Fastest Mower
An Austrailian flying instructor who grew tired of the 16 hrs. it took him to mow his private air strip has invented what's being called, in reports from "down under", the "world's fastest mower".
Designed to pull behind a pickup, utility tractor or even a car, the "Tow Mow" allows inventor Bill Morris to reduce cutting time on his air strip to 1 hr., operating at speeds of up to 40 mph. The first-of-its-kind mower has been tested at speeds of up to 72 mph but Morris recommends speeds from 6 to 40 mph as the best operating range.
Morris used his knowledge of aerodynamics to develop the ground-driven mower's main cutting disc. The circular blade's height is adjustable and the 4-ft. wide mower can be ganged together in groups of three.
According to a recent report in THE LAND, a popular Australian magazine, the mower has caught on quickly for everything from mowing golf courses to mowing heavy brush.
Sells for around $2,500.
