Engine choices

Help me out here, there are a lot of posts out there so I did "try" the search feature.

Ariens uses 2 engine manufacturers, correct? Some brand that they slap their name onto and call it an Ariens built motor, or is it actually built by Ariens? Pros and Cons of this motor?


Thank you!

B&S: a good name but as I have seen in here, they moved production of the engines for snowblowers to china? Or are they still made in the USA? EVEN IF they are now going to be made in China, are they still a good engine, are they still being produced to the specifications and standards that the ones that were made in the USA are, or has there been a noticeable difference? Are all Briggs engines now made in China?
Pros:
Cons:

And please don't refer me to that thread about US vs "other" country made equipment, it's confusing enough.

Thank you!
even though they are now made in ##$$$. they still have to conform to briggs specs and quality. the pro side is there is a butt load of new old stock made here in the states left. time is of the essence to buy up that made here old stock. before everybody else gets to it first. hope this helps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

it will take 30 - 50yrs to know if these new motors comming out of china will last as long as the old motors made in the usa regardless to who made it

Some of the new B&S Engines are actually chinese Honda clones. Some are actual B&S designs, they're all half decent engines, I wouldn't call them great, but I wouldn't call them junk either.
