Since there isn't a sub-forum for lawn mowers I figured I'd post this here.
I snatched up a CL find last night. I found a Woods Mow'n Machine 1850, I believe it is basically the same as a Grasshopper 1822. I haven't figured out the manufacture date but I'm guessing 1990 or so. It had a Briggs I/C 18hp engine until it threw a rod. The PO took the engine off and disassembled it... and kept the electric PTO clutch.
Anyway, I have an 18hp Kohler Command sitting in the floor that I hope I can make work. If I can’t find a cheap electric clutch I will have to fabricate a mechanical belt engagement system. The thing is in really good shape and if I can manage to repower it, it should make for a great little mower. The deck is a 52" and is solid.
I will update this thread with the repower progress.
