EDGER AS GENERATOR
8l5 Junie Ct. Joliet, Illinois 60435
I found this lawn edger and got it working, and I got to

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
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.
