I called my long-time parts guy, Special Ed, and got his 2 cents on Sears. Here's what he had to say:

SEARS IS GREAT!!!!!!YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Honda, Mitsu, and Yamaha are all fine units.

If you want to run the whole house and $$ isn't a problem then a built in stand-by unit would be best. Kohler, Generac, Winco make these.

My dad and I both have Generac EXL portable units . They are noisier than the Japanese made generators but they do just fine in an emergency and cost less.

Seems Driller may have had a point.......Are you guys getting your chains yanked?

What happened to drillers comment??? Apparantly someone has taken offense.

Those that have been around here for a while, know that "Denis" isn't really Denis.

Watch and see, but those who know better won't be falling for it.

Emmo, thanks very much for this info.  I did some checking as well, talked with Teumseh and Ariens folks today, conclusion is the(OHV9.25 and OHV11) engines(internals) are identical.  The engine HP differences are result of modification in the carburation.  Not even a different carb, just modification within carb(probably jetting).  All else is the same.  I raised the point about price difference(almost $250) between these two engines as to why so much.  Discussion on this money point was non committal in that they simply said its really a matter of market pricing.  So it seems paying for these two extra HP is like buying a market price issue not the content of the item.

Lesson learned here and well documented by this forum is but the 9.25HP, you're getting the same product with almost no difference in performance!!!

Thanks again the way, I changed  my order to the 9.25HPDLE.    


Glad that helped and the 925 DLE would have been my choice.

I'm not sure I believe they're identical.  Ariens and Tecumseh have too much at stake to do something illegal and so dumb as to falsly label the motor output.  I as yet have not heard a plausable answer however.  For now I'll give them benefit of the doubt, but I will persue this.

I'm assuming the additional power(9.25 to 11.5) might be due to any of the following, carbuartion, exhaut header, compression, etc, etc without increase in displacement.   Certainly seems like something Ariens & Tecmseh can easily clarify.   Maybe somone in this forum knows the answer.

Those ideas have all been explored....bottom line is that there is NOT much different between those motors other than the number on the decal.

Here are 3 posts to review to see how this conclusion was made. (Yes it also includes Briggs motors too, but this was pertinent to the original discussion).
