Lifan vs Predator

I'm going to be doing an engine swap soon and was wondering which would be the better choice. The predator 212cc or a Lifan engine. I know you guys all do the predator 212cc but has anyone done a Lifan?

The Greyhound engines that Harbor Freight had before they switched to the Predator engines were made by Lifan. I never saw any complaints about those.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I have 3 greyhound / lifan 6.5hp engines in service and one 11hp engine. All have run very well the oldest one has been in service for 4 or 5 years. While these don't used extensively they all have quite a few trouble free hours on them. I don't know who makes the predator engine it may be Lifan.
