Leaf blower Supercharged Lawnmower Puffs out

Well After throwing up that leafblower supercharger viedo and the NOS'ed lawnmower viedo i thought of sumthing why now leafblower supercharge a lawn mower.
My homeboy in the viedo was at work so i rolled up with a camera just to see how powerfull the STIHL leafblowers really are, we really didnt think it would do anything until we saw white smoke followed by blue clouds.

blowing Nitrous into a mower- even with the governor in place, somebodys liable to lose a foot or something...I hope the valves melt before the blade overspeeds and breaks at the center bolt...if the governors removed, Id bet the blade would go first. the little blades on my r/c heli pull around 700 pounds centrifugal- and theyre fiberglass...imagine the tonnage on a mower spinning 4-5-6k momentarily until the crank/rod/case shatters from the stress...what happens if ONLY the crank snaps- blade still may be on its merry way....'plane of rotation' dont end at the tin guard around the blade- could be a hundred feet in any direction.

I dont understand why blowing into a governed engine in a freerevving yet throttle limited state was worth filming? cant 'make' hp if not using it...

Confidence: that feeling you have just before you realize the mess you've gotten yourself into...

Re: Leaf blower Supercharged Lawnmower Puffs out

right but this lawnmower has a throttle and blade engage seperatly so we thought first. anyhow the piston coulda poped out the front but no 1 was standing there.

in the other nos lawnmower viedo in one of my earlier posts on viedos they took the blade of kuz there mower did not have a seperate blade engage.
but i do sit and think what if the crank rod had broken after the centrifical force rocked it to much and as the crank broke so did the stud bolts that hold the blade down. It woulda been like a boomerange run a muck.
