2023 Update Sticky


This website was converted into a static site on July 5, 2021. Our original Mission Statement from 2015 was to provide a forum for Sensation mower owners to share their projects and bring over as much as we could salvage from the older Yahoo message group. Lots of folks did just that, and you can find their posts in the (now static) forums. Others posted images in the gallery. Members shared scans of old catalogs and parts lists that can be found on the catalogs page (a great resource!). Rocco is still providing the services listed on the services page and you can contact him at the email address shown at the bottom of the About Us page.

For 2023 a new forum has been set up! So far our limited testing proves the system is functional, if a little slow. It supports uploading images (4MB max image size). We'll be leaving the old forum as an archive. The forum link in the menu at the top will get you into the new forums, but only from the top level pages of the old site. Once you start digging deep into the old pages you'll be trapped in the past! Just click Home to get back to the front page and then click on Forums to get to the new forums.

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 Sensation_mowers@yahoo.com 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 Sensation-Mowers.com 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.
