My current snapper 21c has a Subaru Robin 6.5 and it seems to be bullet proof. They no longer make that engine and havent for years. I never liked Hondas that much and I it doesnt have a oil filter. The Briggs has a oil filter, sometimes it seems Im cutting upside down so a "splash" oil system would last me a year.
