King of the Trimmers Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing

Here's our KOT entry. Montgomery Wards with a 12 HP Briggs. We stripped the mower carriage and blades off of it.








Getting it ready to race. Put a new belt on it and changed the oil. It would hardly run because the air filter was so plugged up, so it got a new filter. Also got a new battery.

Re: King of the Trimmers Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing

King of the Trimmers started as a spoof on King of the Hammers. Now, it has become an actual race at KOH. The KOT race will be Monday afternoon Feb 4th.

Re: King of the Trimmers Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing

Looks great!

Reminds me, I need to get working on the tractor I bought off the Head Lobster in Charge quite a while ago now... and maybe pick the snowplow for it up from him sometime, seeing as it's quite wintery now.

Re: King of the Trimmers Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing

We're trying to figure out how to disable the governor on the Briggs motor. We'd also like to weld the rear end, but we may run out of time. We'll see.

Re: King of the Trimmers Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing

Do you make motor mounts for that swap?

Re: King of the Trimmers Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing

Wow, I have the exact same model except it has a different logo (AGWAY). Mine is still running great but I sure could use the mowing deck that was stripped: mine needs to be replaced.
Anyway, I hope you do well in this race. I will feel proud riding on mine this summer. I may even paint it the same colors.

Re: King of the Trimmers Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing

That's cool. I actually have two of them. I got two of them off of Craigslist for 150 bucks. I jumped on it because I thought it would work out having another one for spare parts. This one we got running with a new air filter, the other one we haven't tried to get running yet. The other one is dirtier, but looks like it hasn't been used as much because many of the parts are in better condition.

We're having fun with it.

Re: King of the Trimmers Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing

I gotta say, I am impressed with the Petty Cash effort. LOL

we have an agway like that that goes about 30mph or so, sadly it wont be making it out there..

i need to figure out when we are running. BLM makes it difficult to put on an "event" so right now it is a charity ride for JV that people may try to drive faster than one another on
