are there winter-ready Predator 212cc anymore?

I am looking to re-power my 1995 Toro 724 and have been looking online at the Predator 212cc, but can't find any that are winter-ready. Do those exist anymore?

Thanks
.

On e-bay they still have winter ready 208cc clones for $79 free delivery. Only issue is they have 25cc shafts, a couple of thousandths less then 1 inch...can't get pulleys for. I've bought and tried two, and just shimmed the 1 inch pulley with shim stock...worked great.

I have the reg. 212cc Predator on one of my Ariens . Here in CT it is no issue running that machine in the winter, been using it for 3 or 4 years now. Any machine that needs an engine, the 99.00 HF is the way to go for sure.

In over 20 years of running my ST 824 on a clone, only ONCE did I ice up the governor .......I'm a big fan if the HF Predator.....that said, the 79 dollar 208cc engine on e-bay, has a primer bulb and is a snowblower engine. Like I said, it has a 25mm shaft, but a coulple of pieces of .002 shim stock and the 1 inch pulley fit nicely.
