Several have commented about wanting to find a Bolens Lawn Keeper to restore.  Check out this CL ad for a pair of them. Surely looks like you could easily make one good restore out of both.  Price is right.

120 volt electric start

 

:rolling: :bigrofl:

 

That's a good one...  Even though they both look to be pull start engines...

 

Did they even make a Lawn Keeper with an electric start?  IDK where you would even cram a starter on one of those, it looks like space is tight.

 

I also figured those would be 32" decks, not 36"...

I looked at the attachment interchange for the LK and EK and there actually was an Electric Start Kit available for the model 911 and model 915 EK.

 

As for decks, the 910 had a 28" deck  The 914 could use the 28" deck or a 32" deck.  The 911 and 915 both used a 32" deck

Some of those Briggs had both, my Yazoo Red Rider has 12v electric start as well as a recoil.

Yes the optional electric start kits for the LK's were 120 volt, just like most electric start snow throwers.  Could be started either with manual recoil or plugged into 120v AC outlet.

That's right.  I remember seeing it in one of my Bolens EK/LK brochures.
