Hi guys,

So here is an odd one...

I want a Lawn mower engine as cheap as possible. Between 5hp and 12hp if possible. If my grandad lived closer, which he doesn't as he is in North Wales he has a host of ride of lawn mowers I would take. Anyway, my plan is to build a Go Kart as me and my older brother have everything we need, just cannot get hold of a decent engine. doesn't have to be geared.

Cheers!

i tend to agree . The average lawn mower engine is nowhere near 12hp

I have a suffolk punch which has a good engine (condition and make) but like most it is around 2-3 hp.

if you want nearer 10 you need a pretty powerful lawn mower engine

I can't remember the make, but many ride on lawn mowers have around 12hp engines. Much more torque aswell. Should easily be capable of 20mhp, I'll mainly use off road though.
