I recently bought a Troybilt string trimmer, and I sprung for the battery Jumpstart attachment. No more pulling the cord a hundred times! Works great.
I'd love to modify my lawnmower to use this thing. The rotation is the same direction. The jumpstart gizmo is basically a 12v motor with a pentagonal output shaft and a one-way clutch. All I would need is a socket to fit on the fan nut on the mower, and a female pentagonal that fits the jumpstart thing. Can't find pentagonal sockets, and I'm not sure how to even measure the output shaft on the jumpstart.
I know it's Rube Goldberg, but hey, I like my mower, but I'm getting too old for pulling the rope over and over.
