The 212 Has Plenty of Power. The Test Run Threw it 25 Feet. Downside is No Alternator for Headlight and Grips. NBD.

Very nice, it looks great! Too bad the Predators don't have alternators, I'll confess that those are features that I like on my machine.

Nice! Do the larger Predators have alternators?

They do not.

You *can* add charging coils to a 212cc Predator, but you'd also have to replace the flywheel with one that has magnets from a different clone engine.

The non-hemi and hemi versions require different flywheels, so caveat emptor.

You can google the how-to steps by using "adding charging coil to a predator" -> the first hit has good pics.

Machine looks great! The Predator looks good on it, like stock. I'm a little surprised it throws so well with the little 212cc on a 27", but if it works, it works!

Good to know there's a simple $100 HF repower option for this machine. I use the lights (no choice really...) but haven't bothered to turn the heated grips on yet. I'd likely add a small battery pack to run the lights before I started pulling the engine apart for charging coils.

Did you make any mods to [eliminate] the air filter? How about the cooling shrouds and the like that make the LCT a "winter" engine?

The streak of Tim Allen in my says that there's got to be a bigger engine option, with bigger drive pulleys so it will scoot a little faster, jump higher and throw farther. Not the 26hp V-twin. Somewhere in between...

New Husqy ST227P for 2014-15 snow season.

I love my snowblower. Every beat of it's little heart is one mine won't have to take.
