    Naval aircraft carrier turning at speed; Really Impressive

    I caught a small invisable jet of 450# steam, and yes I bet 1200 can. We used the broom on our hydrogen tower stairs and piping too. It would catch fire when passed by a leak.

    What are you watching in YouTube?

    One of the comments "So now you burn 2x gas, 2x maintenance , 2x noise to mow the same width" haha At least when I made mine years ago I offset it. I had a 24" rider and a 20" push mower to mow 2 acres. And I never had a trans issue. However I did mow over a Walkman that an errant tree limb...
