Step 1: What Do We Need?
The required materials:
- An old lawn mower (it doesn't have to work)
- A pressure vessel
- A coupling with crane
- A garden hose
- A garden hose gun
- A wooden block
- 2 wheels + one metal tube + washers + clips stop from a draw car
- 2 safety pins
- 7 long screws and 7 washers
The required tools:
- A drill
- A pair of pliers
- A hammer
- A srewdriver
- A file
- A meter
- A pencil
Step 2: Preparing the Pressure Vessel
Post the coupling to the pressure vessel, attach the garden hose to the coupling, now fill the tank with water, and place the garden hose gun on the garden hose.
Step 3: Remove the Screws and the Motor of the Lawnmower
We don't need the motor, the screws and the collection tray, so remove them with a hammer, a pair of pliers, or a screwdriver.
Step 4: Wheels of the Lawnmower Replace With Those of the Draw Cart
To ride even better with the lawn mower, we will replace the wheels by larger wheels, in order to ride better and faster with your lawn mower.
First you remove the two rear wheels of the lawn mower.
You mark where the new wheels have to come, you drill two holes where the axis of the new wheels have to come. Make sure the axis clamps a little (not too loose) you can still enlarge the hole with a file.
Push your axis through the holes. Now you need to position your axis so it is exactly in the middle as compared to your lawn mower, mark on the board where you drilled your holes, drill into it so you can push the two safety pins in the axis, so the axis can't be moved. Insert the wheels, then the stops for the wheels.
Step 5: Attaching the Pressure Vessel to the Lawn Mower
If your lawn mower has a round shape, it is easy to mount it to the pressure vessel.
First you position the wood block with the attachment frame of the tank, you draw it off, then you drill two long screws in each side with a lock ring between.
Now the wooden block is hanging on the pressure vessel.
And then you attach the wooden block on the lawn mower.
You do this the same way, you mark the holes, you drill the holes, and you attached the wooden block with three long screws with a lock ring between.
Now hang your pressure vessel very tightly to your lawn mower.
Step 6: Good to Go!
