Driving On a Frozen Finnish Lake With Giant Table Saw Blades as Wheels

Table Saw Blades as Wheels

Finnish couple Lauri Vuohensilta and Anni Vuohensilta who is quite famous for their Hydraulic Press Channel and Beyond the Press comes up with the new experiment they replace all four tires on their Subaru hatchback with a giant table saw blades. Their first test site was a frozen lake near their home. After a bit of a rough start, they found that the wheels were very successful at crossing the ice.

There wasn’t traction control or anything like that holding us back. The 1st gear was just too long/we hadn’t had enough power on low revs to go any faster. This was a really fun project and wheels worked surprisingly well. I was sure that they will break or destroy the car but now they just work…

The couple is planning to test the wheels out on a gravel road soon, so stick around for the video.

…for part 2 where we are going to test these on gravel roads! … I will do part 2 with a bit more speed when all the ice and snow have melted and they are not slowing me down like on this video.
