You may not know it, but your lawn mower can be converted into an inverter generator that will provide auxiliary power to your home during an emergency. This conversion, which can be handled by most do-it-yourselfers, is accomplished by repurposing the motor and adding an additional power unit.

So you know getting a back-up generator is a great idea, but you just can’t afford to purchase one? Well could you afford $40 for a small back-up generator? If you search around at you local junk yard or landfill you should be able to pick up most of the bits required to build this DIY lawnmower generator.

There are a few extras you’ll likely need to purchase, but you could bring this in for $40. This generator wil keep the lights on and power smaller electronics etc.. To see how to you can make your own DIYgenerator then click the link below.

This is a 500 watt power generator big enough to power tools, and home electronics.  If you try plugging in kitchen appliances, heaters, window AC units etc….it will shut down, you need a 2k-3k watt power converter for large power comsumption appliances..

It’s not difficult to build this project, if you know how to wrench things apart and have a basic understanding of how things work with engines and electrical components then you’ll do just fine.  If you want to save money on the build, go to junkyards, recycling centers, and landfills which is where I got most of the parts.   You’ll be surprised the stuff you can find for pennies or better yet FREE.   I spent $40 for all the parts needed for this project.
