Grass Mobile: Meet the man behind the wheel of the grass truck (video)

Have you spotted this truck covered in Astroturf driving around Sudbury?

Sudbury resident Sean Lamothe says he lives to make people laugh and his Grass Mobile (btw, not the 'wacky tobaccy' kind of grass) is helping him do just that! 

When the body of Lamothe's 1998 Mazda B-Series pickup started to rust, he just couldn't part with his truck.

"The engine still ran great," Lamothe said. "It just felt wrong, getting rid of it so I had this ridiculous idea."

Inspired by the Dumb and Dumber Shaggin' Wagon, Lamothe figured out a way to keep the truck intact and gain some laughs at the same time.

He detailed the truck with artificial turf — yes, that plastic green grass looking carpet stuff!

"Once I started the first panel at the back, I didn't want to do it anymore."

Knowing there was no turning back, Lamothe managed to complete his truck's turf makeover over the course of a month. 

"I get all different kinds of reactions from this. Mostly smiles, which is why I did it."

"I did it to make people laugh."

Turns out, the grass truck is also a great way to promote his summer business.

Lamothe is the owner of Grass Masters, a weekly lawn care service that provides grass mowing, trimming, fertilization, weed removal and stone work for clients living in Sudbury's South End, Garson and New Sudbury.
