This site is now archived Sticky

This website has been converted into a static site as of July 5, 2021. The software which we were using to run it (Drupal) had gotten very out of date and upgrading it was far more work than we have time for. I think I speak for Rocco as well when I say that we'd like to have a secure email list or a forum to continue the conversations going forward, but trying to keep an interactive website patched and secure today is a full time job in itself. I for one would rather outsource that to or Google Groups or similar. I'll be updating the site with contact info and hopefully an alternate forum in the coming weeks.

Mission Statement Sticky


Just getting started? Introduce yourself or ask a question over in the forums!

I wanted to do this website with the help of Nate to basically have an outlet to discuss all matters Sensation and to display any projects I assemble and for other fans to post their projects. It is a gathering place to showcase and appreciate everyone's mowers and to talk amongst ourselves to share information and resources, especially technical information and parts and procedures. Past information and history is rare and hard to come by. This is the only site on the internet dedicated to these mowers.... I eventually want to make this fully comprehensive and bring over the years of gathered info from the Yahoo Groups site. This dedicated website was created at the request of the early members.

Original Cast-Aluminum Rims


I finally got around to cleaning up a bunch of rims. Many people lately have been asking about wheels for their mowers. Well now I have some sets of all original Sensation cast aluminum rims and also some highly sought-after rubber to go with them. There were 4 types of rims they made. The plain rims, a light ribbed rim, a heavier ribbed rim and the mag type. I have a full set of the heavier ribbed rims with new bearings, and a set of 2 plain ones with bearings.

It's almost Mow Time.


Now is the time to dust off your Sensation Mowers and get them ready for another season of grass battling. If you have an old mower that needs its engine refurbished, or you want to trade in your old motor for a new Sensation spec'd motor, now is the time. Contact me at to see what your options are. I can do almost any configuration of a 3.5 hp or 4 hp Sensation lawn mower engine ready to run.

Happy New Year!


'Tis the season for dreamin'. Summer mowing, projects, modifications, maintenance, replacing your tired motor with a motor, Etc.. This fall and winter has seen quite a few motors hit the turf coming out of my shop. I apologize for the lack of fancy projects posted here. I have focused mostly on the motors and haven't done many full mowers. That will change soon. I'd like to still do a full pastel Easter mower. Currently, I'm working a a new personal motor with a heavily modified camshaft, dual rotating valves, and a host of other go-fast goodies. Stay tuned.

Shout out to Nate, and others.


I just wanted to take the time to mention some of the important people of this site. First off this site literally wouldn't be possible without Nate. An off chance spurious google search lead me to Nate and his very own website chronicling his many hobbies. Other than his fondness for Sensations he probably has the most authoritative knowledge of "Doodlebugs". I'm sure if you message him he will gladly immerse you. HE runs the site.

RestoMOD 21” sensation


Just finished this 21” mower up!! Built new style push bars using parts of the swing over handle and switched to rear mount and deck mount push bar to take some of the load off just using the rear mounts. Made some rear wheel adapters for 10” rear wheels, spent a TON of time on making new grass catcher mount and aluminum grass catcher with buck riveted screens and an aluminum skid plate that is removable to replace once worn. Powder coated all parts and pin-striped the deck.

Custom 110908


Check out this amazing 110908 style 4hp leaving the shop for a new owner that demanded a motor that wouldn't buckle under the pressure of demanding work. I hate parting with these masterpieces. Kudos to the new owner.. a piece of modern history and art made for abuse.
