Simplicity Sunstar electric conversion

Recommended Posts

I love my Sunstar,  but for .5 acres in 15 minutes it really is overkill.  

Anyway, i'm thinking it would be a gret candidate for electric conversion. One 10-12 hp motor for the hydro pump and a smaller on for the blade. 

I'm thinking I would not need  conventional controller, just use he neutral switch to run the motor at full power whenever i move it out of neutral.

I've seen a few lawn tractor conversions on yourube but they start with garbage machines that i would not want to use in the first place.
