  • OT Lawnmower Engines

    The Toro mulching mower I bought in 1995 finally went TU. I'm told that those engines have a life of about 500 hours and I figured mine had about 600 hundred. Whatever. I didn't want to spend 500 bucks for a new mower since the deck and all the other stuff was in good condition. So I just bought a replacement motor.
    "Small Engine Warehouse" was the place.( legal disclaimer-I don't work for them or get anything for mentioning this.)
    Anyway. The replacement motor cost $110.00, 125 delivered. 6 hp B&S .New motor. They had no direct replacement since there were changes after 16 years, but I made an adapter for the blade mount and it is up and running.
    I know some of you guys use small engines so this might be a handy resource.
