I have always admired this video on Youtube.

Yes i saw that yesterday myself
that must have a impeller kit on it which i would add
i coudnt tell if the engine was 11hp Lhead 358 cc thats whats comes on the 921003 and the 921006 i wish it was the over head valve engines
he is looking to swap my 2005 1332le with impeller kit and cab for his 2009 1130dle plus 400 cash

his needs a carb and belt and chute fixed
mine needs scraper belt and some paint
if it was the oh318 id swap in a second iam on the fence
thoughts?

I had a 2008 version with the LHead 358 and I repowered it with a 420cc OHV 2 years ago and it runs very nice.

I was reading that thread the other night i might consider doing that if i can sell the 11 hp for 150

Sold mine for $250.00 and it was in very good shape.

And all along I thought that it had been snowing all winter at my home, and it was just that guy pointing his chute towards NY. Wow - impressive video. Must be a Hybrid, because he's playing AC-DC ! LOL

I'd like to know what the actual impeller RPMs are from machine to machine. I'm thinking of picking up a cheap laser tach on Amazon to get a read on my machines.

At face value, your deal is a downgrade in performance, but 400 clams can get you a nice 420cc Honda clone. :)

Ariens lists their impeller RPMs in some of their tech descriptions. There was an app on here that was posted in the past week that allowed you to plug in pulley diameters and get the output speed. If, it is a simple calculation. 3600 * (Diameter of engine pulley/Diameter of Impeller Pulley) assuming that your engine is running at 3600 RPMs. Of course, this assumes that there is no slipping of your belts.

I've seen the calculation somewhere on this forum before. Laser tach is very accurate and faster then measuring both pulleys and digging up the calculation.

I think the Ariens are in the 1000 to 1100 range. They are the only machines that I've seen rpm numbers floating around for.

I have seen speeds for Toro PowerMax's also. But, maybe I haven't. I tried to find them, but couldn't !

BTW, the is more than just the impeller's RPM that is important to the throwing distance. The diameter of the impeller also plays a role. So it you multiply RPMs x Pi (3.14) x Impeller Diameter, you will get the actual tip speed.

For example, if you have 2 machines that are turning the impeller at 1100 RPMs, and one has a 12" Diameter Impeller, and the other's impeller is 14" diameter, than the 14" diameter impeller should throw snow "about" 17% (14/12) further. Again, this is as rough approximation, and "your real life numbers may vary".

yes i agree but my plan was to take the 400 sell my st824 with impeller kit for 300 and go buy a 1336 pro with the 13 hp engine and make the 1130dle my small blower fot the back and side of my house

I got the laser tach
my st824 had a reading of 1090 rpm @3700
my 1332le had a reading of [email protected] ive since raised that to 3725 rpm but the impeller bearing needs to be replaced so no more test on that
the factory rating for924128 133l2e in the owners manual is 1209 impeller rpm they rate the motors @ [email protected] 3750 rpm i would bet you need to spin the [email protected] to get 1209 impeller rpm

Sounds like a good plan to me. Can't go wrong with A nice factory fresh monster machine.

I like that your 30" machine will be your small blower. I'm looking to unload my 26" MTD for a 24" Ariens or toro.

That's cool that you took rpm readings, I ordered the laser tach, I'll post my results when it comes in.
