    Holden V8 powered chainsaw

    This has to be the Lorax's worst nightmare.

    Australian lumber processing equipment specialist Whitlands Engineering has built a V8-powered chainsaw, complete with semi truck-style smokestack exhausts.

    The 253 cubic-inch engine comes from GMís Australian division, Holden, and can cut its way through a nearly two-foot wide hardwood trunk like itís not even there.

    The heavy-duty trimmer is mounted on a custom wheeled rack because itís obviously a little heavy to lift for anyone not named Paul, and features a 1:1 ratio right-angle drive to get power from the crank to the chain.

    Unfortunately, if you were hoping to pick one up to clear out a little overgrowth in the backyard this spring, youíre out of luck.

    According to CarsGuide.com.au, itís only a demonstration model and isnít destined for production, but a little lumberjack can dream.

    After a hard day's work of chainsawing through some teak sequoia hybrid trees, it would be nice to relax in a rocking chair.

    I have seen the boobs. And they is us.
