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!!

Winter Update

Jan
25

It's been a little slow in here over the winter and it usually is. But that doesn't mean things are slow in the workshop. In fact winter is the best time for me to focus on projects to unveil for the spring and summer mowing season. Here's a little taste of what's happening at Sensation Mowers.com. Motor Mania!! Several powerplants have been assembled awaiting test runs. And another 2 mowers for the site museum and 1 for a friend! Stay tuned!
