There’s more than one way to increase horsepower on an internal-combustion engine.  While the previous guy chose forced induction, this guy decided adding nitrous was the answer.

As over-the-top as the whole setup looks, the only time you can really tell anything different is happening is when he blows the vents.  Hmmm…  Why not do this to a rider and measure speed instead?

    I love the Cherry Bomb, but the rest is kinda dumb. At least the turbocharger guy did some real fabrication. Only way to top him is with a supercharger or turbine, IMHO.

    I thought the tree was cool but was not impressed with the rest of it really. They should have mixed the music soundtrack lower so you could actually hear the mower. Overall my impression was yeah so the guy’s seen one too many episodes of Home Improvement or something, and what a waste of resources. The effort could have been spent on a more meaningful project.

    I am not sure that a standard lawn mower could not handle any of those things–maybe the Christmas tree–but everything else should be easily chopped by a standard mower. Not that you would want to, or should.

    I guess it was okay for show, but I really was not impressed. The jack stands and lowering the mower with a 2-ton jack seem like overkill. And how is it a hot rod without a custom paint job?

    I agree that neither mower did anything that impressive. I have destroyed many foreign objects with my non-nitrous mower, not on purpose of course.
