Brand: Ariens Type: 4-Cycle OHV Power: 254 cc Torque: 12.5 ft-lbs Net Torque Starting System: 120-Volt Electric /w Recoil Fuel Tank: 2.9 quarts (2.74 liters) Looking at new snow blower. Looks like Ariens dumped the Briggs & Stratton engine and is now outsourcing their own. Any info on their engines? $1100 item so I'd like to keep it a looong time! My last one was a John Deere 828 that I ended up getting IIRC 14 years from. Any advice much appreciated.
