    I have one but can't compare it to the waterpump or auger. It a good generator engine but mine will only run with restrictive stock airfilter...if airfiter is removed, it leans out and dies after 5 seconds.

    Thanks for the info. However I thought that you might have already stripped the motor from the enclosure. However 63cc @ $100 I think that I might go with HF 99cc 4 cycle on sale for $109.

    Good thinking on not going for the generator engine. They are super heavy and the output shaft is not compatible to anything.

    Hello...james,I have not bought one yet but I did look at the display at My local H/F ....not much to see all covered up in tin!....the web site has a place to see an xploded view,and I agree Professer, it did'nt look like a clutch would fit the shaft without alot of work....too bad the pump was discontinued...but they still sell the auger...but its about two bill$...the You still need everything else to use it! ....Tigmaster....
