I am in need of a new vertical shaft, electric start mower motor. I would like to find one of 2 to 4 hp.
My wife's push two wheel string trimmer/mower motor is at its end after 15 years. She is not able to use a pull start motor so it must be electric start. I have only found motors 8hp and up of any brand.

Any one know of a new smaller horse power motor?

Sorry, Ray

I just don't recall ever seeing any vertical shaft engines around 4 HP that are electric start. That's not to say they don't make them (I need to get out more) -

Good luck with the hunt.... Perhaps someone here has a broader perspective than me ;)

Thanks Mark777

I remember Tecumseh made a 5 or 6 horse about 10 years back but can't find one now.
I will go up to a 8 hp if it isn't too heavy to push.

Anyone have any ideas?

Update found and bought a Briggs 5.5 hp electric start with gas tank and muffler for $160.18 shipped.

Thanks to everyone for help.
