How To Convert An Old Lawnmower Into A Powerful Home Generator
With Spring almost here, thank God! It is usually time for people to swap out their beat up / run down lawnmowers and get a new one for the upcoming mowing season.
This is good news for people like us who use their brains and think outside of the box.
Check out Craigslist, your local classifieds or just do it the easy way and get out and look around the local garage sales. You can pick up old mowers really cheap, maybe even free.
I see them every time I hit up a garage sale. I even see them laying in front of people’s houses waiting for the nice old trash man to pick them up. Most of the time all they need is a carb clean-out and they are good to go.
Converting a lawn mower into a generator is not a very complicated process. Here are the parts you’ll need:
- Electrical Wires
- (optional) Mounting Bracket
