Greeting friends......just have a question ...Powershift related.......chime in Todd. I'm driving to pick up a Powershift 624 tomorrow....the owner says he was told it needs a carb, but he thinks it needs an engine......no biggie...$35... I'm not questioning the engine....my question....is the platform for the 624 the same as the 824....if it is ...has anyone done the Predator swap on a PS?....BTW I'm not a real fan of the lower hp Tec's....8 hp and above I'll put up with.....Thanks for the input, Brothers......

Thanks detrbuzzard .....I'm thinking a 212...as I've got a few in stock. I know on the Ariens I've repowered they took the place of an 8 hp without missing a beat. For whatever reason..the last few weeks, Powershifts have been coming my way. Two 824's, an 1132, and now this one. I love the platform....just can't convince the consumer that they are better then the Yardman I have for sale....***?????

They are the same pulleys are different, when you come down I have used 824 pulleys. The 624 has a 7/8 shaft. If you want i have a supee clean one ill let go for 25 in need of a motor

Just curious if you are planning to sell the 624 PS once you get it running, etc. (not that I am interested) I have thought that the 624's are not nearly as valuable as the 824's . . . just wondering if that will be an issue on the resale, even if you throw a 8 HP engine on there.

i mean after he swaps the engine out to an 8hp

Once the engine is swapped, it is essentially the same machine. I'm referring to the 624 as original. I don't see them commanding the same prices at the 824's on CL.

As far as a swapped out engine on a 624, time will tell, if the OP goes to sell it.

bad news...the owner sold it out from under me last night....too good to be true, I guess.
Bummer, was it on CL . . . I know there were a couple hanging out there for a while.

well and update.......it turns out the owner got stiffed and the people that were going to show up and shower him with cash.....didn't.......I drove down and am the proud owner of a 624 Powershift. It's missing the carb, but has compression......might be able to save her......
