Opinions On LCT Snow Engines
I like to get some input from those of you with experience with owning or repairing equipment with these engines. Comparisons on how they stack up against other well known brands would be helpful too. I am looking at a Ariens Snow-tek snow blower that has an LCT Storm Force engine 208 cc, but I think other blowers use these engines also.
I don't have the exact engine model number, but it looks like the latest Storm Force 208 series version that has changes made to the carb linkages and fuel shutoff. I read about problems with the carb/ linkage on past models.
Things that come to mind are reliability, power, starting, parts availability, component quality . Anything else you can think of would appreciated too.
