This is one hell of a lawnmower. I could get my yard done in about 5 minutes with that thing. Only concern I would have is the cord. You know at high rates of speed, you'd go to cut a corner, run of the cord, then electrocute yourself. Good news is I hear these lawnmowers come with cameras, so it will all be recorded and your family you left behind can send it in to us, so we can post it.
