Batshit crazy idea

So I've got a v1 and I'm thinking of building a race mower and power that with a v1. Only because I want to rally a mow-ped. Also put a hitch and one of those pull behind foot stands for a self propelled mower and carry my best friend.

Re: Batshit crazy idea

Not sure if there would be enough power? I didn't know people were still racing mowers, did that when I was younger, super fun! Post pics if you build it!

Re: Batshit crazy idea

We'll see if it even has enough power. It's just an idea I was like that might be kind of fun to mess with. I'll have to shave off as much weight as I can and build a different setup drive train wise. Different frame and such. I'll post up progression as I jump into it.

Re: Batshit crazy idea

Cool!

I think it will lack power and the gearing will be off. I advise against it as it will be a alot of work with likely poor performance results. But to each his own! If you do it, post pics.

My town holds Outlaw Lawn Dragster lawn mower races every year as part of our All Wheels Weekend celebration. But t they have waaaay more power than you can get out of a moped. They're running 750-1000 cc street bike engines. It's insane.

That said, it's way outta league for a moped engine.

Mowed the neighbors lawn testing it out. Not too shabby, a few welds broke here and there,

I changed the transmission in the little Snapper for a Tuff Torq K46. Thats belted to the 17hp, I hope it kicks ass! the last 2 transmissions got destroyed within hours. My son was riding a power wheels to the grocery store, he needs a faster ride so he don’t get ran over ya know.

The transmission axle I put in the mower, backwards like an idiot. I bent a steel stopper plate out of the way that was cock blocking the performance. now it goes faster but still not fast enuff. Oh well at least it mows now, can’t get the kid to do it otherwise.

Re: Batshit crazy idea

I thought I was done, stayed up late hacked the transaxle mounts off then turned the thing around so it runs forward. Hacked some junk into the linkage. Damn kids! Where’s my test dummy

Pretty cool scooter !

Thanks, it’s. K64 tuff torq transaxle out of a John Deere L118. Way better than the old mechanical snapper drive system. I found the best mower seat, urban Express seat can’t go wrong! Mini renthal bars, it’s running an urban belt too. Ha!

My son won’t get off the game, I’m out here trying to make mowing fun for him. Bastid

The engine I’m using, I stole from a John Deere Crocodile build I did earlier this year. Added swing arm and stretched a bunch of junk made it a 2 seater. It mows fast too.

Trying to get it that fast again..

I have a few pics of the wheel conversion, the rear wheels are going to be spaced out wider with wheel 1” hub spacers. Closer to the front width anyway,
