I am currently drawing up plans to make a self sufficient lawn mower...

The plan is a 48 inch cut double blades...

I want it to be an electric lawn mower. self propelled. What size electric motor would I need? What size battery and what kind of alternator? I am thinking 12 or 16 volt motor, but that might seem like a little much. 36 volt haha. Maybe if it was a riding mower...

I have a lot of ways I make money and I just recently called a bunch of reality companies and have built up quite a bit of mowing work. I would save a couple of hundred a year on gas and oil with this method. The battery would be in a case on one side and the motor on the other.

Are there any magneto electric motors where I would not need an alternator?

Or how big of a laser would I need to make it a laser cutting mower. LMAO...

What would make yours less expensive or better than what is already available?

Thier are already cumsumer programable mowers availabe.

Cheers!

You are going to need a 20HP motor.

If you are going to go electric you probably need a 24 volt system for best results.

It would be less expensive in the long run 1 for the fact of less maintenance I have seen electric motors without magneto coils last 40 years without maintenance. Second fact an electric motor with magneto coils would not need an alternator to charge the battery. Third you would never need gas. Just a starter and a battery. Hook that up to a grid of batteries and you have free energy, self sustaining lawn mower.

Side not: I just got done building a gasifier for my riding mower and man is it amazing. From the gasifier I just finished building up enough bio oil to refine about a quarter gallon of my own High grade particulate free gasoline. A hundred times more clean burning as well. I have mowed about 3 acres 4 times. I just have to refuel it every 10 minutes or so. But I have pine needles and grass and pine cones in abundance so it aint no problem keeping fuel.

What about energy generating? Are there magneto electric motors that create electricity to charge a battery to keep it going? How many say 24 volt batteries would I be able to charge with that? I have so many sustainable ideas and the drive to do it I just wish I could walk away from the black jack table when I double up a $500 bankroll 14 times...No joke, do the math and tell me the number and I will tell you if you were anywhere what I won and eventally lost everything back but a bus ticket home...which the casino bought because I had worked out a 5 percent cash back on my initial investment. had true counts memorized keeping a supposed non relateable side count of 7's, 8's, and 9"s. So thing that is supposed to be mathematically impossible. But I sat won a fortune and lost it all back. Now I cant play anywhere in my state without getting okey doked by a deck mechanic. I figure them out sometimes but there is always some one better in the casino industry. As long as I give them proper respect and only use it to supplement my current income meaning when I go now I go to win $25 from each casino some times less a couple times a month. I always tip about half of what I want to win to show mad respect. And I ALWAYS bring someone with me know that does not know what their doing and they always lose lose lose.e If I won all of that money and trust me when I say it is a lot I mean a lot of money I won and lost. but if I won it and walked I promise you that there would not be one casino in the country that would let me play. Oh and I also had the help of a weak dealer. showed her hole card every once in a while. Since then I had not seen her... I plan on getting a thousand shirts printed out and stop everyone on the exit ramp saying welcome to the horseshoe, losers are welcome winners will be banned.

Ordered a motor...However it says 460v. Meaning I am going to have to have 460 volts worth of battery to be self sustaning... Does that sound right to you.

To start off with you are going to need a charging circuit.

2nd a 460V motor will Not do even in the slightest. Although you can string the batteries together in series to create 480 volts the current capacity will Not be sufficient at all. If you try to hook batteries up to that motor you are more then likely going to have a fire.

If you string the batteries together in parallel you will increasse the ampacity while at the same time maintaining 24 volts.

So what you need is a 24v motor capable of a 20HP output. Then based on the current rating of the motor calculate the number of batteries you will need to string together in parallel to meet the amperage requirements.

Could I say run a home off of it. Small stuff could work. Lights, home appliances, pretty much anything excetp the fridge...washer and dryer...t.v.

So what message I am getting is that it is possible to produce free energy this way???

You could Not run your home off of it without converting the energy into electric.

This is Definitely Not Free Energy because you would never be able to produce enough energy to replenish the system if you put a load on it.

An electric motor with magento coils and an alternator on the outside would work. I was told that motors with magnetos in them would have enough power to power an alternator since the magnetos do not interfere with torque or the hp.... I have the motor now but have to sell that one for one that takes less volts to get it going. so it may fit my set up. Thanks man just looking for knowledge.

I think you missed the point.

It Can't be Free Energy.

Because the second you put a load on it the motor is going to require more energy than it produces.

You are better off just buying a generator and paying for gas.
