    Is there anyone on here that knows about wood gasifiers? I am presently building a wood gasifier and am hoping to find others who use this medium. Thanks

    no wood gas burns wood to make gas to run combustible engines. Finished building mine and now tweaking it for a generator.

    Hi woodchuck,
    I am just about to finish my wood gasifier. I have a donor lawn tractor to experiment with. Once I get it to run, I will try and apply some hydraulics and generator for it.

    I don't have any experience with this. But I'm glad you guys are posting here. As your experience progresses, may I suggest you continue to post about it here? We need the tech material here on this site.

    Good luck with your experiments, guys.
