Default Re: Small Weed Whacker or 7.0HP Lawn Mower?

Well you could go for the middle of the road and use a Harbor Freight motor,

2-1/2 HP Horizontal OHV Gas Engine

Being that you're an engineering student you could build your own gearbox and drive system.

Come up with a lefthand pullstart and a righthand drive system that would do away with a jackshaft for a shift kit.
