Spent the last several days working on momma's butt buggy. She has been helping quite a bit too!

 

Thanks to our good friend Lane Ralph, a few modifications and our butt buggy is almost "show ready"!

That is very nice. I'm surprised she doesn't have electric start. Does it have brakes? Good Luck, Rick

That a nice Job. Congrats. Was the seal I sent you for one of those? I have one Choremaster left and I did put a 6 hp electric start on it. I will have to send you a pic if I ever get around to taking one.

That's great, last fall at a tractor swap meet some one had a home made version of that made from a garden tiller. He had remove the tines and put wheels in their place, don't believe he had electric start either.

My dad has an electric start chainsaw.  The little 2 stroke can't be over 2 horsepower.  

No on-board battery,  just plug it into your pickup.

No brakes at this time, and it starts right up with a cordless drill!

 

Are you sure she will be happy with that?

 

Cool butt buggy!

She was the one that picked the color. I had wider tires, but she wanted the narrow ones.

 

Thanks for the nice comments!

I have an old Remington Mighty Mite from the 70's that had an electric start option if you had the battery pack for it. It was a 30cc 12" saw. I heard they worked okay but I just figured I would add weight to a saw that is supposed to be small and nimble and really if you can't pull start a 30cc saw how are you supposed to use it and go logging anyway? :D
