Default Harbor Freight V-Twin

This is in the latest flyer, looks like a clone of the Honda V-Twin. 22HP for $600.00 may be worth looking into. Can't find anymore info on it yet and it doesn't show on the HF web site yet.

Just a side note a friend of mine's son builds engines for carts and racing. He has found these China made engines are low cost and almost as good as the real Honda engines. I would say take a chance. price is right.

I worked at a Honda dealer for a couple of years. I could not count the number of people who bought bikes, mowers, pumps etc. with china knock off brand motors on them. They would use them for a few hours and they would break or shake parts off of them. After getting no service and not being able to buy any parts from were they bought them they would bring them to us for repairs. Nothing we could do. We could not get the parts either. I buy my stuff to use not to just sit around looking for parts. There is a reason brand name cost more than knock offs. Only ever had 1 warranty claim on Honda motors. Honda replaced cab. and all was well, had part in a few days. I would not buy these knock off motors at half the asking price. I am cheap and lazy and like to buy and do things only once but it is your money buy what you want.

I'd consider it to Repower my deere 300. I just don't have the fab tools / skills to make the parts myself. The Briggs kits are only $1400 with everything you need.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
