Building a Gigantic Blender Is the Best Use For an Unwanted Lawnmower

What do you do when you move into a house without a lawn and no longer have any need for your electric mower? That’s easy, you strip it down and use its spinning blade to build an over-sized blender that can slice and dice much more than just chunks of ice.


Giaco Whatever’s latest experiment easily makes the list of things you definitely shouldn’t build at home—unless you’ve got a super high-speed camera and can capture fascinating footage of soda cans and ping-pong balls getting shredded to bits. In addition to processing decidedly non-food objects with ease, we bet this monstrous blender could whip up a bathtub full of margaritas faster than you can say Jimmy Buffet.

I’ve seen a similar device made from lawn mower parts. They used it to swirl newspapers in water to make a pulp slurry, add cement, and made a product called papercrete. The device was mounted on a trailer and cranked through differential gears by the trailer wheels turning. They put the paper and water into a drum with the mower blade, drove around the block, and the pulp was ready.
