But isn't that the motor you can't get parts for? Not being a Debbie-downer, I love the PowerShifts!

Wake me up when the snow's done...

I would not worry about parts, those engines will run forever. If you did need parts just reach out to one of the brothers from Japan. If that were near me it would be in the trailer already and then warming up in the laundry room for a good wash and wax. There are some machines you don't pass on, THIS IS ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh baby, come to Daddy !! Daddy needs a Mitsu.

Just to make Todd happy I did pick up a New Briggs last/this ?? year for that Prototype 28" with the bad head gasket I've got. Too many projects, not enough time.

That one is within driving distance of me and I am in the market. Can someone mention what make this one special? I don't have a lot of interest or time to mess with engines so most likely will be buying something new in the $800 range.

In the nicest way I can ask,,,, are you on drugs ?? There is almost nothing available for those Mitsubishi engines. I've tired local small engine shops for NOS on the shelf, Snowblower dealers, out of state snowblower dealers, a few Toro dealers, Toro corporate, Mitsubishi US and most of the online parts supplies just trying to find a simple head gasket. And yes I even asked Yanmar Ronin in Japan to try and find one without any luck. I've posted a request on a few sites like Smokstak and My Tractor Forum without any luck. They've been out there a couple years now and I did bump them once in a while just in case. I've had a few leads but noting came of it. There just isn't one anywhere to be found.

Mitsubishi tried for a very, very short time to get into the small engine market. They abruptly ended that attempt and left these engines orphaned with no future. It's a G711P and the head gasket is a 65-1920 in the Toro catalog. I'd love to find one.
They likely run well when they run but if you have any, ANY mechanical problem IMHO it ends up being lawn art or a paper weight.

The wheels swing back to double down the weight on the bucket. making it like a tracked machine. if the engine still runs strong and with proper oil changes it should go for a long time to come.
