The following guide will help you learn to build a racing lawn mower. Racing lawn mowers are exciting, fun and safer than many other types of racing vehicles. Additionally, creating your own fast-paced racing machine is exciting and something to brag about.
To build a racing lawn mower, you will need:
- Your lawn mower
- Small pulleys
- New tires (optional)
- New muffler (optional)
- New dry belt (optional)
- The first step to building a racing lawn mower is changing the pulleys. You will need to flip the lawn mower over and remove the motor and dry belt. Inspect the dry belt for any holes, strains or dry rot. If the dry belt appears to be in poor shape, you will need to replace it. Next, you need to remove the pulleys with a wrench and replace them with smaller ones. The smaller pulleys will allow your mower to gain more speed.
- You will also need to examine your lawn mower's muffler. To build a racing lawn mower, the muffler should be replaced if there are any holes. Even the tiniest of holes will cause your lawn mower to lose speed.
- Next, check that your tires have proper pressure. Additionally, you may want to replace the back tires with larger tires so that your lawn mower can get better traction. The front tires should remain the same or can be replaced with smaller tires.
- To complete your racing lawn mower, decorate it however you like and take it for a test drive.
