Shortly after constructing his own huge high-speed 3D printer called the Cheetah, Hans Fouche used the printer to make his latest creation, a 3D-printed lawn mower that actually works.

Essentially a proof-of-concept in order to encourage people to buy the Cheetah, the 3D-printed mower is the first of its kind.

Fouche was able to crank out all the plastic parts needed for the the mower in merely 9 hours, while the mower’s other parts such as the motor and its spinning blade were taken from an older machine.

As you can see in the video, the mower does indeed cut grass but the durability of a fully plastic lawn mower might come into question after a few hard days of work.
