This Lawn Mower/ATV Hybrid Will Also Juice Your Power Tools

While Tim Allen spent entire episodes pursuing the title of World's Fastest Lawn Mower, someone else went out and built the World's Most Useful Lawn Mower. It's called the Raven MPV 7100S, and while it may have a name more closely resembling a McLaren, it's definitely a workhorse that you can use for just about anything.

First, the basics: yes, it's a lawn mower. There's a detachable blade assembly that sits underneath. Rather than be powered by the gas engine or a system of belts or gears, however, it's a self-contained electric motor that runs off of a generator.

When you take the mower attachment off, it's a regular ATV. Or rather, a regular ATV that's a hybrid. The 420 cc engine can propel it along at 17 mph, or you can run silently in a fully-electric mode.

Whichever mode you use to get to your destination, once you're there the generator aspect comes into play. 7100 watts (hence the name) of electricity means you've got up to 10 hours of juice for whatever you happen to need it for, even if it's most likely watching TV while "camping."
