my rotary jacobsen was saved today as a B&S quantum off a brand new never run pressure washer motor was sitting on a mower shop floor for $50! so out of curiosity i bought the motor and have it ready to be bolted up to the deck tomorrow.but there's a question.how hard are good pressure washer motors to come by? i may want to stock up on a few in case i get more into other mowers and some may be pre comp.when this project is done,it will show up in the frank mower section.

When you say, "how hard are good pressure washer motors to come by?" do you mean the engine or the pump? The engine is just a plain (usually horizontal shaft) engine. The pump you can buy out of mail order catalogs....Northern, etc.

i meant the engine because they have no saftey systems on them unlike a zone start mower.
