Mission Statement Sticky

Oct
18

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.

Another collector whose machines feature a true to original restoration quality, is Tommy. Using all brand new old stock factory parts and professional color-matched paint, his mowers are literally factory new. He promises several of these mowers to hit the scene this summer.

One of the most ardent Sensation mower collectors is also one of the most elusive here. Leigh has been active in the community since 2006. He has met with me on many occasions for advice, service and parts. The level of detail in his machines are unsurpassed. It often takes him YEARS to complete one machine. He even has the bolts powdercoated!. He may not post a lot here, but he's always on and contributing on the front lines.

In case I ever get accused of posting the same factory spec'd 110908 over and over. Here's two side by side from this winter. One for a project and one for a member!. Complete Sensation factory spec'd 4hp. You don't see this often. Keep in mind I have another very special super secret project in the works with another 110908 Sensation spec'd motor already underway!!!

Here's a mower from one of our Arizona brethren Waymond. I did a copper colored motor for his blue deck. Reports starts first pull and runs great!

Update 2018

Jan
20

I haven't been contributing much lately. It's been a very busy winter so far. I am doing quite a bit in the shop though. Several motors and a new crazy build-up for the summer. The best one ever! Most of you all text me now and for those who have my number can continue to do so. This summer I'm hoping to be extremely active here. Feel free to post stuff. This is YOUR website. Regards!

Crankshaft guards

Sep

Here is a photo of two crankshaft guards. Note they are identical except that the early Sensation one has Ralston Nebraska stamped on it while the Gilson Sensation has the town blanked out. Almost like the tooling was ground to remove the town. I thought it was pretty neat.

Summer 2017 Project(s) Done!!!

Aug
16

Sorry for the delay and lack of activity here. Life keeps throwing me curveballs!. I finally finished the promised May project. A factory original 1981 21" Sensation! Perfect in every detail!! I also completed a killer custom Skunk-Works edition lawnmower for one of our members. There's also a rebuilt 21" for sale currently that's ready for lawn duty. Some of you may remember a lot of 6 Sensations for sale on Ebay in the spring, well that collection now belongs Sensation-Mowers.com.

Daily Driver Upgrade

Apr
01

Since I'm selling off my 3.5hp modified motor, I decided to build from scratch a bone stock 4hp 110908 Sensation-spec'd motor to use from now on for my residential mowing duties. Factory parts, factory paint, and brand new roto exhaust valve. No decals. they are too expensive and will be saved for your restorations. I'm working on a full-on factory 4hp resto right now with powdercoated deck for the summer reveal!!
