  • Well this was a journey, I've got a way better design in me but I love the trail and error and I know you like seeing it all to, stay tuned for the ultimate garden swing. Limit stock available on the merch so get it quick www.colinfurzeshop.com

    • can you try making something powered by steam, like a car or boat, or just a simple steam engine

    • I'm guessing it's a two stroke engine and you've got no lubricant in the gas.....

    • Stoked to see the full size bunker generator; Furze style!, in which I mean pro.. practical in this application would obviously be more appropriate.

    • use water bubbler to catch the tar!

    • Colin I do this at home and the tar is from the softwood if you put some hardwood like maple or oak it’ll burn hotter and a lot less tar! I do this for melting metal mostly aluminum but I’ve never tried it on a mower, that’s super cool! Also I love you channel and the stuff you do is amazing!

  • Frankenstein's mower.

  • The bustling wallet naively record because gauge biosynthetically miss from a vagabond ornament. crowded, natural spring

  • collinfurze: uses wood gases Team trees: WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS MADNESS collinfurze: I just want to mow my lawn

  • Rip environment

  • you need to build the turbo burner

  • Please more

  • Looking forward to when you have the bunker powered by wood gas!! Ultimate prepper dream right there

  • Imagine if this guy was sent back in time to the 18th century

  • I would love to be this guys neighbor. Getting a hands on view of his work would make home ownership slightly better.

  • *Now use nuclear power Colin.*

  • Put the smoke gas mix through liquid try some for fun starting with water cos your a plumber init.

  • Sell the patent to big gasoline companies you'd make so much money

  • What about a grass powered lawn mower?

  • Now make one that runs off of grass, then it will be self-fueling and self-sustaining :D

  • 😁😁😁

  • 😁

  • Yes colin let's make a machine that burns copious amounts of wood in order to burn copious amounts of wood so you can cut down even more vegetation for decoration. This man hates the environment and I love it.

  • Bilde a car

  • this is amazingly steampunk

  • I'd love to see an update to this at some point

  • Make a grass powers lawnmower. It will never run out of power

  • Collin try a water filter with a tube going into water and another at the top where the gas escapes too and a drain area back to the tub of water in-case some gets sucked into it.

  • Amazing!

  • I want a part 2 please

  • friend : what fuel you use 95 or 98 ? me : it's complicated

  • Can you build a cut lawn powered lawn mower?

  • Funny thing, this was a possible alternative the germans was thinking about using for their tanks in long travel.

  • thought it said grass powerd

  • You speak very fast!

  • I bet your neighbors love you.

  • Maybe if you could filter the gas through oil it would work better

  • This dude actually a mad scientist

  • why not use solar power to heat wood with heating cartridges.. no smoke only gas so the heat you use in your house to heat the wood is heating the house andyou stor the gas in a bladder outside the house for cooking> cheaper than story energy in batteries.. with minimal losses. what do you think.

  • Music awful other then that I loved the video

  • Is this Wood-Punk?

  • Colin you mad b4stard, I love it. I wish my crazy materialised into reality as well as yours does! I'm a tree surgeon working off a 4 acre plot in Derbyshire that needs to be off gridifieded. Plenty of timber! Will definitely be giving this a go on a larger scale to charge a battery bank. Water sanitation and sewage management are other things I'm thinking about although I can't see them being great Colin Furze youtube channel material 😁

  • It looks like it’s from the 1876

  • This is awesome. You could try running your tubing through a reservoir of cold or liquid to cool the gas and cause the tar to accumulate faster before it makes it into the engine while having a vertical run before entering the engine manifold. If it works, it could help keep the tar build up out of the engine but it will just be building up in the coil windings that run through the water. Maybe make that part quickly interchangeable so you can place a new piece while setting the other in solvent to remove tar build up. I wonder if it would be possible to skip the coil windings through water all together and figure out how to possibly use the cooling liquid itself as a filter. Possibly a plexiiglass reservoir filled with cold water which has the inlet of wood gas at the bottom of the reservoir and the outlet with the cleaner air to the engine, at the top of the container. I would figure that the colder the water, the better the coagulation and build up of tar there would be, therefore better filtration. It would be a good experiment to see if adding soap to the filter water would affect filtration.


  • Lol you and Adam Savage should team up to do a few episodes together. It be a blast

  • Next video, grass powered lawnmower!

  • We are still waiting for the wood powered bunker

  • 7:14 put an intercooler on it

  • 5:05 Amazon return reason: item defective or doesn't work

  • most of the shit this guy builds could stock a museum and be legit.

  • What kind of degree does this man have😱

  • $50g in tools to save a few gal of fuel a year....

  • Challenge: Build a lawnmower powered by the grass it mows. Doesn't need to immediately start up electrically or by grass or chemical power. You could make it so it starts as a push mower, then as you go, the grass feeds into some kind of system that activates the powered mower mode once enough grass is collected.

  • Make a rocket! Try to do it electric based! True challenge all electric no gas

  • The obvious question is can you make it so the lawn clippings are the fuel source- perpetual motion?

  • Boris Johnson looks like the budget version of colin

  • Saludos mister Ford gracias por su trabajo perfecto viento en popa saludos.

  • Love it macgyver

  • Cyberpunk 2077

  • First build:small and not working after:**huge strange thing**

  • Bạn chế quá hay nể bạn

  • Awesome

  • Colin your insane take that as a compliment🌲+🚜+🔥

  • Don't you think it's time for that tie and colorless shirt to throw that lawn mower for food? Either in the furnace or shredded with a blade. ;)

  • nice honda 90 in the background at the start.. Is that yours colin?

  • Your the young builder Gordon Ramsey

  • Why not use a alternator to provider free power with ur imagination I’m sure u can do it if not I’ll give u a hand

  • I have an idea its probably impossible but somehow make grass power a lawnmower so it makes it own power

  • Colin has bought some new tools I see. That’s great!

  • Absolutely Hilarious! Thanks for the fun Colin. Best Wishes & Blessings. Keith Noneya

  • Easier to put besa in the tank

  • Can I have the wood vinegar? (The moisture)

  • I though that was a v8 engine

  • Every body start preparing for the great tribulation now stock up on food and supplies and most important of all trust in the LORD OF LORDS KING JESUS ALWAYS.

  • Nothing ventured nothing gained, I suppose you could always make Wood alcohol Wood spirit. I have run a hot lawnmower on heating oil (Kerozine). But you have to pay for that.

  • Someone needs to get him some steampunk goggles

  • Colin you are a genius

  • The germans in ww2 used this technology to run training tiger tanks to save petrol because the fuel situation was so bad

  • Make a grass powered tree chopper and have these running together

  • Use water filtration, pass the gas through a tube into a container of water, it should get rid of most of the tar

  • Dude wtf. Utterly amazing. Imagine being this interested in stuff. Your passion and skills are up there with.. I donno.. Some kind of cartoon character

  • Lawn motor with turbo, and rebore as big as it can , and with cool exhaust, please notice me lets see how it cleans

  • Great for global climate issues.

  • we need a wood powered chainsaw

  • Back in 2002 I visited a Ford museum on the Netherlands (that is closed now). One of the trucks shown there used in WW2 had been converted to work on wood gas due to gas restrictions during that time.

  • Please change the fuel from wood to dried grass then you might have something

  • Next: lawn powerd lawn mower

  • Colin try using water as a filtration system, that will catch dirt like tar and other creasy stuf. Same system as a waterpipe or a bong as you call it in the uk. Good luck had a laugh here thanks for that.

  • I wanna take a moment to thank you for making educational and entertaining videos for years now. You’ve never ceased to amuse the people of DEname🤯😄

  • It's best to blow up through the burn chamber and clean the gas as it comes off the top of the wood Hopper. That way the fan is in front burn chamber. I used a water trap to filter my gas. That also makes a great fertilizer.

  • you should probably start wearing a respirator. that shits going into your lungs. also surprised that the gasoline industry hasnt murdered everyone that knows how to do this

  • Isaac Newton

  • You haven't got the memo from the new administration. If its not wind or solar powered, its environmental terrorism.

  • Meth powered inventor???

  • I reckon all the metal was making it harder for the gasifier to get to the right temperature

  • One of my kids passes a lot of gas like all the time! I guess I could plunk him on top and get the job done without all this fussing 😂

  • Wood powered chainsaw?

  • You need it to be grass powered.

  • There's thousands of comments on this video about him and "when the apocalypse happens", but uh, yeah, here's another one.

  • next logical step: wood gas powered generator to keep your projects from grinding to a halt if the power goes out

  • that very bad for the evironment as well ;-; and the gas powered lawnmowers can cause air polluation soil polluation

  • You are so much more than a youtuber, you should spin further on this idea and try making a car. Imagine the “furz car” in the future🤯🤯

  • Who else thinks this is the steam punk theme lawnmower

  • Why do I feel like he's getting sick if youtube and I'm only a minute thirty into the video
