This is one of Firework Steve's ebay purchases - Home made Gas Turbine, installed under the seat of a sit-on Lawnmower! Mad nutter.....
We'[ve had fun lighting it up a few times!
Redneck Jet Ski (Lawnmower drives on water)
We built this from an old lawn mower using 55 gallon drums for the wheels.
it worked pretty well until the welds broke on the barrels and the rear
axle housing broke in half.
Fastest Lawnmower in the World

lawnmower at the world famous bonneville salt flats
4 Jet Car Drag Race
Under the definition of "awesome" should be a picture of 4-jet cars racing!
NMRA/NMCA All Star Nationals at ZMax Dragway in Charlotte, NC ended the
night by lighting up ZMax's 4 drag lanes with the fire and the thunder of 4
jet turbine drag cars creating an estimated 24,000 HP on one track! The
Embry Riddle dragster takes off and runs a 5-second quarter.

Sabre Jet Engine: first start
The first start and initial test run of the Orenda type 14 turbojet that we have been working on for almost a
year now... you and me!
It's been a lot of work, and now it's all on the line as we crank this baby
up, hit the sparks and spray those combustors with Jet A.
It was an exciting and Exhausting
A special note: this is not a hot start, but fairly typical of the older
generations of turbojets to have flames
shoot out the tailpipe on startup.
The video response is from Burning Man participant Kunal Dovedy, and the
engine section he used is the exact one featured in my video "dropped into
a turbine engine".
Turbo lawnmower turbocharged Craftsman 50" with Kohler
Command 22.5 HP. I still use the mower for... mowing grass; about two
seasons worth and a little over 50 hours since the install.
Build a JET ENGINE using only a DRILL, GRINDER and duck tape (NO WELDING)
They are simple and you can make one even if you don,t have a workshop and
a range of tools, well thats at least what my plan is but will it work or
will it just turn out to be a waste of time......
