very good engine

Retrofitted to a 1981 simplicity tractor for snow blowing. Had to modify hood bracket's. But starts easy and runs good. Will have to update when winter snow gets here and I run it under load.

Duromax 16hp electric start

So far so good! The engine fires right up with with either the electric or pull start. It's quieter than the 11 hp motor that's on my snowblower. MaxTools had it to me within 4 days. We'll mount it to a mud motor kit for my son's duckboat and plan to work it hard this fall.

I purchased one of these to replace the FE290 Kawasiki in my 1996 Club Car two years ago. This engine bolted in to the existing engine mount with no modifiction and has been trouble free since the install, always starts right off in cold weather and has great torque. I would recomend to anyone as a replacement engine for the Club Car engine.

For the money the performance is great. It was easy to adapt to the project and performed well first time out.
