Hi everyone I started and finished a small new project for my ss14.  I found this generator on craigslist along with a center grader blade and mower deck eventhough they werent made for my ss14 I knew i could make a mount for the generator.  I used angled steel to make a new mule drive mount for the generator and it works perfect.  Here are a few pics.

Very inventive, I have been watching for a Gen without an engine for a while now to do just what you did.

What did you power up with it first?

That looks slick!  I could come up with about a hundred uses for a mounted generator like that around my acre.

I asked about the mount as I need a mount for my snow plow.  That mount piece was missing when I bought the plow.

I already have the measurements, thank you for offering.  In fact, You took pictures showing me the measurements and then Ryan drew them up for me to download.  They are in the file section somewhere titled "Sears Thingy II" if I remember correctly.   I was planning on cutting the mule drive to make the mount but that would make the mower deck useless and I may want it someday.  Using heavy angle for the sides of a homemade mount may be easy and cheaper, rather than trying to find channel or having channel made

I thought we had, but one thing drives out another. Heck to get old.

If there is a scrapyard local, I would butter up one of the guys to watch for a 1' long piece of what you need. Either that or with a little welding, you should be good to go.
