Hi, I have a 3hp Briggs and Stratton engine. I need ideas of what i can build with my engine. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Jake

Put some wheels on a barstool and put the engine between the legs of the stool. Make a clutch with a belt from the engine to the wheels that you can tighten. Have fun :-)

P.S. Please excuse my crazy idea :-D

hello i have built a 3 wheeled go kart with a 3.2hp engine and harley davidson centrifugal clutch. one weel at the back, and 2 at the front. it makes it so much easier, because you dont need a tranmission, you just attach the weel to the shaft and off you go. speed of about 40-50mph, and two steering options. one: rear weel steering op 2: front weel normal steering i chose op 2, but op1 is easier. Out.

you epople really know nothing about engines or go carts do you. LIke the messgae about the 3 wheeled mini bike. Its obviously better the 2 wheeled go carts cuase 2 wheeled go carts dont exist. Your prolly thinking of a mini bike. Harley davidson clutch? r u crazy.

My Answer to you is take the engine and make a huge egg beater out of it so you can make super size cake and pancake and mabey some fluffy whip. Ya know Loads of people like fluffy whip so make alot of it and you'll make alot of really cool friends that'll eat your fluffy whip

securely mount a small fuel tank to the motor, bolt an eccentric flywheel to the crankshaft and two beefy handles opposite. Crank it up and try to hold on. Fun!

how can i make something out of a weedeater motor

I'm not sure how coule 3 HP will work, but I would make a hoverboard. I know with a 6 HP engine you can lift a rather large hoverboard and a rather large rider off the ground about a full inch.
