Basically a winterized Predator with electric start.

This is the same engine they use on the new Toro power max and snowmaster 724.
Wait. It shows an electric starter in the pictures, but the text says "Recoil pull start only"
So, maybe it's not so cool after all.
I was thinking $140 for being winterized and having electric start was an ok deal. Now I don't know.

Both the Harbor Freight Predator 212cc and this engine are made by Loncin. I like the heat sheilding that goes around the muffler and surrounds the carburetor. If Electric start is actually included for only $140 then is a great deal and a few of the people here on the forum said that the Predator 212cc not having electric start was a deal breaker for them. I like that the engine is all ready to go and you don't have to winterize it. Someone should repower with this engine and give their review and if it actually does have electric start for only $140 it will sell like hotcakes especially if it is mechanically identical to the HF Predator being Caste iron cyclinder liner and dual ball bearing supported crankshaft. I have two Predator 212cc repowered snowblowers and they both work great this one is all ready to go and you don't have to fabricate shielding to protect it from icing up.

Could you post up the model number? Maybe we can find it elsewhere

The model number is the same that Gustoguy posted.....G210FDS-A35 212cc 5.9 hp Loncin...I hope that it is available somewhere! I'll be repowering my a** off.....I'll give a report once it shows and gets put on a blower. I'm seriously thinking of taking the Greyhound engine off my ST 824 and replacing it with this motor. I'd love to repower my latest 32 inch 924 with it...but is it enough power?

That was quick. All I'm getting from both links is: This item is no longer available.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I called the company and ordered it over the phone. The man I talked to at first said it was recoil only, then after I pointed out the picture with the starter ,he said he was wrong it had a starter. It is supposed to show in three days...I'll really know then. Only 24 bucks for shipping.
