EDGER AS GENERATOR


| April/May 2000


8l5 Junie Ct. Joliet, Illinois 60435

I found this lawn edger and got it working, and I got to wondering what else it could do.

I had an old Delco alternator around the shop (the older type without the built-in regulator). I hooked it up and now have a lawn edger/generator.

The way I have it wired, I can get about 90-100 volts DC, depending on load and rpm. The DC is okay for running lights or electric drills. The engine is a 2 HP Briggs and Stratton.



I have had a lot of fun with this project.

Note: the wooden shroud has since been replaced with a nice metal one to cover the pulleys and belt.
