Since its inception, the Predator line of engines has received rave reviews from customers who want the best while paying less. This 6.5 HP (212cc) OHV Horizontal Shaft Gas Engine EPA available at Harbor Freight Tools is a real work horse and can be used to replace the engines on lawn mowers, log-splitters, pressure washers, cement mixers, compressors, water pumps and dozens of other machines.
The engine features gas-saving overhead valves for cooler, cleaner performance and a ball-bearing mounted horizontal shaft. The powerful gas engine also features a durable cast iron cylinder to improve wear, low oil sensor and auto shutdown when the oil level is too low for safe operation and user-friendly controls.
With over 450 reviews, this engine has earned an average rating of 4-1/2 out of 5 stars. Here’s what customers are saying:
Cranks every time and has plenty of power. The price is unreal. – Douglas, Houston, TX
I purchased this motor to replace a locked up motor. No modifications had to be made to put this motor on. Works great! – Bill, Parker, CO
I bought this engine to replace the 5hp engine from an older Toro 521 snowblower. The engine was a perfect match and was easy to swap out. The engine starts right away, was easy to break in, and is ready for use. – Nick, Providence, RI
Installed this on my 1996 troy bilt horse rototiller. Entire motor was cheaper than just a few parts for the old motor. Install was cake, just needed a few washers to space out the pulley and a 5/16th x 2″ long bolt. 24 pitch. Added oil and gas and the little motor fired on the first pull and purred like a kitten! – Jhelms, Laveen, AZ
I needed to replace my 1966, 5hp shredder engine after this one finally died. Did my research and found this little beauty for way less than I expected to spend. I bought it with no second thoughts, yanked the old one out and installed the new one in. The bolt pattern was the same ( as in 1966…?) … Filled the oil, filled the gas tank and fired that little puppy. I have put now 3 days of work, shredding leaves and twigs and that engine is the greatest. I love the speed control to fine tune the rpm of my shredder. The only regret I have is that I should have replaced my old motor sooner. I have a 1962 tiller ( also a LawnBoy) and I’m going to replace the engine in the spring with this same engine. I’m very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you. – Vince, Statford, CT
