I know I have slow days where I need a fire lit under my tail, but I think I'd opt for another method myself! :smilewink:

There was a guy in the mini rod pulls at the Pioneer Power show a few weeks back that had a choper engine on his puller. Was interesting to watch him try and control the thing, he keep going side to side trying to keep it straight. I think he had to many rpms going to the rear wheels. Wish I had taken a pic, but was to far away.

I don't think that was photo shoped. I searched "jet powered lawn mower" on you tube ans came up with several videos.


Don't think I will be trying this as much as we are under a burn ban.

Don't recall where I saw the link, but You Tube or such has a fella that puts jet engines on lots of things. He had a Ford truck with one in bed, a can with all doors open to run it down road, had a JD lawn mower and other engines of all sizes he built himself or re-worked. Those things were Super noisy, and really didn't seem to have much power or speed in the videos. Think the guy might have been from Indiana even.

You could make a bunch of money at hot air balloon festivals with the optional "Lighter Than Air Inflator Attachment", which is a 90º elbow on the back. Have 'em all flying in no time!

That's funny you mention someone in Indiana, Grumpy. There is a guy who lives a few miles from me that has a school bus, old fire truck, '67 Impala, and an outhouse all equipped. I drive by his house to and from work. Its surprising to see the new things he straps those jets to. That thing gives a new meaning to burning the cover crop.

Some guys have to compensate for what they lack in other areas.
