Half Mower, Half Boat, One Machine?

We came across a great task for some idle landscapers’ hands.

For those willing to pay the price for a unique project to work on, this is perfect.

We’d like to introduce you to the half-finished amphibious riding mower, which was for sale on Craigslist. The post has since been taken down after word got out about its popularity.

It appears the seller chopped a boat into three pieces and placed a lawn mower right dab in the middle. Perhaps to go places he’s never gone before, but he just had to take the lawn mower with him.

However, it seems the places he will go will have to be land-bound as he only got halfway done with the project.

So, for those jobsites that have that pesky pond in the way? No problem! Just fire up the old amphibious riding mower and the job is finished no time.

But on a more serious note…

We’re leaving it up to you. How would you go about finishing this project?

Yes, it has to float and yes, it has to run. Any thoughts?

We’re not exactly engineers over here, so we’d love to hear your ideas.
