    Mini Push Mower Project

    I think it will be cool to build this mini push mower so thats what im doing Im using a little 2 stroke snowblower engine from an old snowblower and the deck is a lid from a smoker grille. It was too rounded on top for my liking so i cut it out and flipped it over to have a recess for the engine to sit down in. much like real mowers have. The deck is 16" round. So this is what iv got sofar. It should be an intresting build

    Cool idea as usual. I guess it would take you 3 times as long to cut the grass though. Lol!

    Yes Hayn made a small aluminum deck mower I thought they were pretty cool. This engine does have an air governer on it. Iv got to pull the shroud off and probrobly swap the coil because the plug wire has been cut off so ill check all that and clean it up while im in there

    Seems I havnt been keeping the updates coming. As you can see the deck is almost done and i have a handle to put on it. I also got the blade adapted to the shaft and the muffler on the underside made. Even half way made the gas tank. Ill get more pics of that stuff. But its going really well and pretty soon this thing will be done. I think i may paint it the same color as my scooter so I might wait and do them both at the same time.

    I like the way you think! I was thinking it doesnt really look like it will be jazd up enough. Ill definatly think about that more. maybe even put fenders on it. Youre right theres no sence going plain jane on it. The exhaust is actually below deck so no fancy there

    Photobucket isnt working but i made some fenders and they look awesome! Im going to put little bullet tail lights on the back of them with a bit of a fin. Its definately got the look. I hear ya about the grille. I think it will need something up front like a chrome bumper or grille. I dont want to overdue it though. Theres not much space to decorate with all the angles and curves but ill think of something. Also Im not sure if I should put the gas tank up infront of the engine or out back mounted on the handle. Anyhow ill post some pics as soon as I can

    Awesome project & I love the idea of giving it a 50's vibe. It would fit in well with this mower (definitely not mine!):
