Now I'm going to build a pack of lawn mowers to drag behisnd my riding mower.
I bought a 21 inch briggs and stratton ran with out oil and blown, I'm going to stick a 190cc 6.5hp engine on it. A 6.5hp with a 21 inch blade will be very tough to stall.
The others are that 6hp flat head and a 3hp flat head from the 1990s. The 3hp will over lap with the riding mower so it only has to eat a 12 to 14 inch wide strip of grass so it doesn't stall all the time.
1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
1989 firebird mostly stock. Aside from the 6-speed manual trans, corvette gen 5 front brakes, 1LE drive shaft, 4th Gen disc brake fbody rear end.
2011 leaf SL, white, portable 240v CHAdeMO, trailer hitch, new batt as of 2014.
