Question

Why do you call it a clown engine?
I see a lot of members here on the site recommending the predator engines?

I hate shoveling SNOW!

they could have got a old new stock BRIGGS engine that was made here in the states for just about the same price. I paid 700.00 for that 13hp engine I put on mine. but that is just me. even a Honda would have been a better choice then that. I call it a clown engine because when I see them they remind me of bunch of clowns getting out of a car. I do not know why I think of that. maybe from my dazed and banana smoking high school days. that is my 2 cents on that there BIG ED.

how is that "Plain Wrong"? its awesome, it combines one of the best engines you can buy on a budget with one of the best snowblower frames toro made. Not all of us can afford a 700 nos briggs. and look, briggs make their own clones now to. personally i want all the clone bullshit on the forum to stop. its not fair that we try to recommend a well made, durable engine to someone and you idiots start harrassing us on how much better tecumsehs are. im getting sick and tired of this ****.

$700 bucks!!! You must have smoked a lot of bananas!
How could he offer it for sale at $500 then?

43128.....what do you mean by "idiots"? Plural? Here on this thread you mean?
So far I only see one "idiot" talking bad about the predator engine. In other threads? I really have not seen much bad said about the predators, but maybe I am not here enough and miss them.

You see something that I don't?
Maybe I missed the other "Idiot" in this thread?
I hope your not referring to my comment that I made?

The ad for it has been pulled, I guess it sold like a hot cake?

I just got myself a Loncin Predator 212cc engine today. Loncin is what Toro has used for their engines. They just rebadged them as Toro.

I am no fan of those tecumsapart engines. for me they always were gutless wonders up here in the MINNESOTA winter. for just about the same price as those engines you could get new old stock BRIGGS. that was my idea on that one.

on other threads throughout this forum, by idiots I mean the people who harass us for suggesting clone engines and commenting about them, sscottsman being probably the biggest offender. and no, i was not referring to your comment Big Ed
