Rated 5 out of 5 by from i love this product! This motor is power full and it runs amazing. It stay running! I love everything about this Motor. I bought it for my True Value mud Bogging Riding Mower... I had to do some modifications like new motor bolt holes... and smaller polly for the motor... But other than that this motor is the best rider mower motor i have ever had. And i have 12 riding mowers, I love everything about rider mowers, The only Negative thing about this motor is the starting is it take a while when its cold But thats normal... I recommend this mower motor. Thanks!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Two engines in two years- both blown The first lasted about 2 weeks (or two uses on a half acre residential property). The retailer replaced the entire mower. The 2nd lasted 2 years with weekly use before blowing white smoke and oil out the exhaust. Of course, this was just a few months after the manufacturer's warranty expired. Needless to say, if this is the "Gold" Series I can only imagine how poorly the rest of their products perform.
