anyone add electric start?

Just curious if anybody adds key start to their mowers? I have an exmark and I hate pulling it, even when though it starts in 1-2 pulls. Cost? how hard is it to add?

I hurt my back once and added it to a seeder, think it was like $175 bucks + a battery

you're going to need:

battery
battery box
wiring harness
key switch
starter
minimum 10 to 15 amp alternator
the correct flywheel

Additionally while some blocks have the bosses for the starter cast into the block they will need to have the threads tapped for the starter bolts.

Some engines will also need a different top engine housing since they don't have the cutout for the starter.

What engine do you have? Make, model and spec number?
