We'll race the shit out of anything

There's some weird-ass racing out in America. Did you know there's a sport known colloquially as "Pig 'N Ford" racing? Hand to God, these guys begin with a Le Mans-style start, dash across the course, grab a pig from a pen, hand-crank their Model T racers, jump in and do a lap. That's a thing, and it's not even the… » 3/03/14 6:07pm 3/03/14 6:07pm

Watch this man mow the lawn during massive hail storm

"That lawn's ain't gonna mow itself," she says. "But it's hailing God's dandruff out there," he replies. "Never you mind. Get on that tractor and don't come back 'till it's mowed," she says. Thanks to SWAT, there he is. » 5/13/11 2:30pm 5/13/11 2:30pm

Lawn Mower Land Speed Record Returns To ‘Merica Where It Belongs

Remember the great land speed records waged between Art Arfons and Craig Breedlove that pushed speeds to 500+ mph and more? This is just like that. Only slower. And with lawn mowers. » 10/31/10 9:00am 10/31/10 9:00am

Husqvarna Panthera Leo Concept: 21st Century Electric Mowing

What's one activity that hasn't yet been painted with the green brush? Mowing! Luckily we're more excited about the Husqvarna Panthera Leo's five motors than we are its recycled materials. » 6/09/09 11:00am 6/09/09 11:00am

Monster Riding Mower Could Kick Off Wave Of New Discovery Channel Shows

Monster Mower? Why yes, thank you. This beast looks like a creation which leapt, fully formed, from the mind of Home Improvement » 8/26/08 3:20pm 8/26/08 3:20pm's power crazed Tim Taylor. More power!

Drunk Drives Lawn Mower in Ill-Fated Booze Run

Sometimes it's so easy to be proud of your fellow statesmen. Let's say you live in Adrian, Michigan, your wife has taken the car, you have run out of wine, and there's a snowstorm raging outside. What would you do? If you were Frank Kozumplik, you would hop on your John Deere lawn mower and drive down the middle of… » 1/29/08 10:30am 1/29/08 10:30am

Merchandising, Merchandising, Merchandising! Where The Real Money On…

We've dropped love to MowZilla before, but if you didn't see it before, it's "...the Original Nitrous powered push lawn mower! It is equipped with a nitrous purge, a Cherry Bomb muffler, K&N airfilter and NOS Powershot with 20lb bottle!" Sounds sweet, right? Yeah, and that's why we wanted to drop an update on the… » 5/01/06 7:55am 5/01/06 7:55am

World's Fastest Lawnmower: The Dixie Chopper

One summer, we had a job cutting the grass for several hookers who rented a house around the corner from our local middle school. We never confirmed they were hookers, but they voluntarily paid three times our normal mowing rate, and guys in suits often "visited" via a side entrance. Their unkempt yard had been… » 3/11/06 9:57am 3/11/06 9:57am

Got the NOS Mower, Brah!

Ah, the new-school power of nitrous oxide blended with the jet set trash and no star world of Cherry Bomb mufflers, all wedded to a hand-me-down lawnmower. The hooligans at Callie's Customs came up with what should by all rights be a massively overcarbureted mower (an Edelbrock 750? WTF!?!), but apparently the things… » 2/07/06 9:38pm 2/07/06 9:38pm

Hoon of the Day: Lawnmower Men

Take one Memorial Day celebration among friends, add sufficient quantities of alcohol and lawn implements and one craggy yard, and you've got yerself the res-pee of some hoon-like conduct. Really, what's a lawn tractor good for when you've got no lawn? That's right. Racin'. [If you've got a video worthy of Jalopnik's… » 11/16/05 12:00pm 11/16/05 12:00pm

Hello, Mowto: Lawnmower Racing Tosses Turf, Bad Puns

We've always dreamed of owning a Honda riding mower stuffed with a CBR XX Blackbird motor in it. Unfortunately, right now we're a bit short short of acreage in the lawn department. Plus, the thing would probably eliminate more grass with its rear tires than it would with the blade. But still, boys dream of one day… » 7/28/05 12:55pm 7/28/05 12:55pm
