Talking Head scratcher!!!!

Bought a HF 212cc engine a couple weeks ago to repower a MTD snow blower but once I got it home a couple cool days caused me to change my mind and put it on my wood splitter. That engine was Item # 69730, Friday I went and got another one and this time is for the snow blower. It is Item # 60363. I really see no difference except the tag on the fuel tank is yellow instead of red like on the first one. A zip tie to hold the shaft keep in place during shipment and the Description on HF web site shows the same things. So I am stumped. I am real happy with the engine on my log splitter so should I return the one I bought Friday and get the same idem numbered one? or just say for get it install it and if I am not happy with it return it (I bought the 2 year warranty) and get the 69730 one?

They do show the EPA model item 69727 So that isn't the difference.

From my limited knowledge the #60363 should be a "Hemi" and a more sought after engine for performance.

Thanks for the reply. I will have to check them out and I guess I got lucky and got the hemi for the snow blower.

I've wondered the same thing with HF, not just about engines but almost anything.

Almost every time I search for a product, I'll see two or sometimes more of something that's seemingly identical, but with different item numbers. Maybe the "same product" made by different manufacturers?

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

Checked yesterday and found the engine I put on the log splitter has the pressed metal valve cover and the one for the snow blower has the cast alum cover. I will keep it.
I was telling wife about the difference and she said if I wanted I could always drain the gas and oil from the non hemi one and return it since I got the 2 year warranty no questions asked. I think I will wait for a while on doing that.
