2 cycle maximum rpm setting, Toro snowblower??

baymee(LehighValleyPA)February 1, 2013

I have a th098sa tecumseh engine in a Toro snowblower with a fixed rpm setting. I'm not able to find the maximum rpm setting for that. It sounds good around 4000 to 4500 without a load, but I'd like to be sure.

Found this great link for all Toro 2-stroke machines

Here is a link that might be useful: Toro manual

The manual gives a range of 4300-4700 rpm as maximum.

If you spin any of the engines Toro used on their snowblowers to 8,000 rpm, you'll put the rod through the case.

OP is correct that Tecumseh engines should max out at 4,700 rpm. However, if you have the Suzuki 47P, max is 3,800 rpm. This is same basic engine used on the Proline commercial and homeowner mowers.
