Belt-Driven Pressure Washer Mounted On Front Of Wheelhorse Riding Mower
I mounted a belt-driven pressure washer on front of my Wheelhorse riding mower. Works great for cleaning tractors and other farm equipment. The washer mounts on two angle irons and is belt-driven off the mower engine. The washer was originally electric-driven but had a replacement motor that wasn't big enough to operate at high pressure without getting hot. Now I can run the pump at full capacity and apply up to 1,500 lbs. of pressure. I think the same idea could be used on other riding mowers. It works best on a side discharge model because of better access to the drive pulley. (Douglas Sommers, 3193 Co. Rd. 58, Milersburg, Ohio 44654 (ph 330 674-4769)
