I saw this and had to share this awesome idea. If we find our self in a SHTF/survival situation and the electricity goes down we can make this relatively easily. Let’s face it, we will have a lot of time on our hands too.
This easy DIY lawnmower to a generator is easy and could power your home in an emergency .. I made a small generator a few years ago and I use it to power my tools in my shed.
This type of homemade generator will be more powerful and cheaper to make than a small solar or wind power.
Dependent on what size lawnmower engine you can get you may get 500 watts easily from this. This could come in very handy if SHTF or power fails over winter.
