No, the NorthStar Belt-Driven Generator Head requires a minimum of a 5 horsepower engine running at 3600 RPM in order for this generator head to produce electricity.

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

Question

could this be adapted to a lawn tractor?

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.
