I am an 81 year old teenager who is in the build process, loving it !!
I found out from the maker of my pacemaker I need to be 20" from the engine !!
Just had to do a little redesign.
Mainly wanted anyone with a pacemaker to be aware. Also watch out for the tig welder.
Keep on karting.

My father-in-law (96 next month) has had a pace maker for some years already, and they had told him no welding. But he still uses the mower (zero-turn), so I wonder now if he is not supposed to be doing that.

But I also automatically thought of the same thing Denny mentioned - if a thin lead sheet behind your seat would adequately protect you from the engine 'interference'. (I assume it is the spark generator that is the problem.)

Hello Ernest,
It is magnificent experience in life to have 96 and still work in garden mowing grass - even without weak hart and pacemaker!

For protection - I think that simple steel plate (oval a little to cover sides of chest), or even steel net - should be enough, making some kind of partial Faraday's cage? My memory from elementary school physique lessons - but should be check!

Regards,
Zoran
