He Made A Portale Battery Charger Using A 2 1/2 HP Gas Engine To Belt-Drive An Automotive Alternator
Steve Devaney, Merkel, Texas: "I made a portable battery charger using a 2 1/2 hp Briggs & Stratton gas engine to belt-drive an automotive alternator. Both the engine and alternator mount on the frame of a push-type, 3-wheeled lawn edger.
  "It'll completely charge a battery in 15 or 20 minutes. To start the charging process, I just hook up the wires to the battery and flip a switch to complete the circuit from the alternator to the battery. I use it to charge batteries on farm vehicles and also to charge my electric fence batteries. It's easy to move around to wherever I need it."
