My lawn boy exhaust is under the deck right above the blade. It's noisy anyway.

It depends on what mood I'm in. Sometimes I like the sound of an engine, sometimes not.

Besides, I'f I'm not burning gas, checking engine oil, etc ... I don't feel I've accomplished as much in the yard. The oversized-desk-fan-on-its-face concept probably works well, but you won't see me with one anytime soon. [Wink]

Yeah, however exhaust attaches to this engine, you would have to start there and build/adapt a flange and then fabricate the steel tubing yourself to accept the muffler. I'm talking proper tube bending and careful welding. Not an easy thing to do. I know I don't have the tools. [Frown] I'd be sure to have at least one 90 degree bend to help cancel out the noise.

Plus "Muffzilla" (even the smallest aftermarket automotive mufflers are gonna be massive) is gonna need an extra bracket or two attached to the deck to hold it in place.

Forget the long and skinny mufflers designed for ricers. [Razz] You want something shaped like a swollen football ... fat is phat. [Big Grin]

The blade does make alot of the noise. Also the type of deck you have will make a difference as well. Steel decks will be noisier that cast aluminum or plastic decks.

Good thread. I've been wanting to find a way to silence my power generator. Remember the 2003 Blackout? It came during a heatwave. And I live in suburbia. The people sleeping with their windows open and the LOUD generators grinding away through the night didn't make for a good mix. (Just so you don't jump to conclusions, I lent my generator to the neighbor across the street for that night).

Would a small automobile muffler cobbled to the exhaust port silence my generator enough so the neighbors and myself can have peace during the next outage?
