Electic Drill -- Motor Starter

Postby coyotte » Wed Dec 03, 2008 9:10 pm

Many, many moons ago you could buy a attachment that fitted on a cord start type lawn mower (pull the cord to start)
--- that allowed you to use a electric drill to start the beast.

with the present powerful battery drills now the market ,I was thinking of using one of these drills to start a "pull start" generator.

have asked around the local hardware stores , but the young fellows do not seem to have clue what I'm talking about , does anyone know if they are still around ???

Cheers

most of the ones ive seen on youtube and around just use a socket attachment for the drill and drive staight off the pull start/crank - seems to work pretty well, but would need to see a picture of how the genset pull start work to comment.
