The generator head can only be mounted horizontally due to fact that the unit does not have a thrust bearing to support a vertical type connection.

Question

I was hoping to send this to Ukraine, where the operating hertz are 50 not 60 like in the US. I know certain generator heads can be switched between 50/60 hertz by lowering the rpm. Is this the case with this generator head or is it rated only at 60 hertz? Thanks

Question

I have an older murray mower, 12hp briggs. Any suggestions? I had a complete generator years ago, but infrequent use of the engine made it not a reasonable investment. so I was wondering if I could power it with my riding lawn mower?

This NorthStar Belt Driven Generator Head is recommended to be connected to an engine using pulleys and a V-belt or needs to be directly coupled to the engine. If this is connected using another method the warranty is voided.
