Default Re: lawn mower horizontal?

It could be a horizontal-shaft engine to begin with. Riding mowers for instance don't use verticals.

As for dangerous, yea, in traffic. But they weren't really riding in traffic.... and once upon a time, LOTS of go-karts and mini-bikes were direct-drive, just because the clutches would burn out if you had one, so kids wanted the direct-drive instead.
