single stage mtd 21 inch

So i bought this guy for $50. Wife made me get rid of my old craftman and murray singles. Its a 2010. I plan on replacing the paddles with a cheap set off amazon and i think she needs a carb clean as it needs some choke to keep running. I guess time will tell if it was a good choice or not.

I was struggling trying to get a picture posted and thought i had it in my second post. It didn't happen and couldn't get it added afterword either. Mods removed it thankfully. But as long as I'm here how many hp is a 179 cc engine? It appears the same 4 stroke is also used on some mtd 2 stage machines. Is that an indication of a strong single stage or a pretty weak two stage?

they use that powermore engine on it. I do not know who makes them. I myself would never own on of them. even the new toro's have them china engines. but that 18 inch toro electric looks to be good. I thought about getting one. I would buy it from lift off but he wants to much for it. after getting it off cl.

179cc is probably around 5HP.

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

There is no actual conversion chart because of all the variables involved with engine building. Carb tuning, compression ratio, valve size, valve timing, and muffler all affect horse power of a given displacement engine. Some people use the numbers of 22, 25 and 29 as the number of CC's that equal one horse power. So--- divide 179cc's by any of the above to get an ESTIMATED horse power of 6 to 8 horse power. My guess would be 179cc's equal 6 to 6.5 hp using the 29 figure.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro 421-E (38585) 2008 (New Owner)
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

The 196cc Honda and clone engines are rated for 5.5 - 6.5 HP.

Thanks for the info on the mtd"s motor. I would rather have a better single stage machine but this one was cheap and fairly new. However i will be lurking on Craigs list, ready to strike, unless the old lady holds me back.
