Most mower engines are in the 3-9 horsepower range, providing plenty of power for small projects. A vertical-shaft engine (as opposed to a horizontal shaft) presents a minor design challenge because most engine-driven projects use a horizontal input shaft. But a 90-degree gearbox can handle that. Save that engine and put it to good use.
