Converting a Lawn Mower Into a Generator

by Erich

With Spring almost here, keep on the lookout for many of your neighbors clearing out their sheds and getting rid of their older lawn mowers in hopes of upgrading to newer models.

I see them every year around this time lying in front of their houses, waiting for the trash man to come pick them up. While many of them are junk, there are quite a few whose engines just need a little tune up and can be used to convert into a generator.

Converting a lawn mower into a generator is not a complicated process. Here are the parts you’ll need:

  1. Engine
  2. Alternator
  3. Electrical Wires
  4. V-Belt
  5. Pully
  6. (optional) Mounting Bracket

How to Convert a Lawn Mower Into a Generator

There’s a number of great sites online that details this process. Here is a couple of the more notable ones:

  • These guys go into some good detail on how to convert a lawn mower into a generator, detailing setup, build, and wiring. What’s great is that they sell all the parts you need so you don’t have to go digging through the web to find the different parts.
  • Some good details into converting a lawn mower into a generator.

I might have to try that. I have an old edger with a 3.5HP engine that’s only been used a few times. I was going to sell it this weekend at a garage sale… The driveshaft comes out of the side, but it should still work. Although I think I’d rather take the money I can get for it and use that towards some solar panels and make a solar generator.

Heh, although solar doesn’t work at night or in the rain. I’ve mowed my lawn in both situations…

I’m really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A small number of my blog readers have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick
question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!
