NEW for 2014: 1450 Series™ is rated 2.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fine, low cost modular engine. I was a bit disturbed to see such a poor 1 star review of this engine. People need to understand that faults such as a piece of equipment being heavy or difficult to service is separate from the design of the engine.I have one on a log splitter, it starts easily, runs cleanly and has the power and torque for its application.Pros: 4 stroke, OHV, ventilated valve area for emissions. Controls are simple and intuitive.Cons: If you're not strong, it can be a bit difficult to pull quickly enough to start.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Log splitter engine junk! I bought a speeco log splitter from fleet farm in oct- 2010. I split wood for my woodburner, To date I split about 10 cords. during the first year in 2010 approx 1 month after I bought the splitter, the recoil went out so I had to get it serviced. The service dept then said the cam was also failing when they ran it they could hear the motor make noise so they replaced it. I didnt split much wood after that and a little bit in 2011. Now I started to restoct today. Aug 2012. I split about 3 cords and my splitter just had a big bang from the motor and I shut it off quickly. I am sure the cam is out again. so now it back to the shop in the prime timeof splitting. I would never buy one like this again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Better Engineering Required !!! Bought this very heavy C'man machine as backup to my C'man S'blower with Intek 7.75 HP(which simply cuts out intermittently and fails restart unless total cool down). My Drive has a 300 ftx 15' wide , 25 degree hill plus a large Y with 50' wide foot aprons. One is 20 degree and 100 ' to the house and other is flat and 100 '. Total is 2.5 to 3 hours of snow blowing. Third year and third heavy snow Dec 2010 and suddenly oil blew out from the base area of engine with about 60% remaining. Snow was normal 10" and not wet or otherwise heavy.Impossible to have service as 2 appointments unable to climb drive and too heavy for me to lift into 4x4 pickup bed. Not a belt... an engine failure!Nightmare!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs well. Product has withstood the test of time, with only scheduled maintenance. Overhead valve engine runs cooler and quieter than previous flat head engines.
