    We have used SEW for years. We have never had a problem. I will say that you need to be sure which engine model you order and follow their return guidlines. Not a bad company, just tight and strict. Make sure you order the right engine and all is well.

    If you do a search for them here, you will find that many here have ordered new engines and received old, (like 20 yrs old) or used motors. I ordered a "new" Kohler and received a used broken one that was nearly 20yrs old. It took taking the motor to a certified Kohler dealer to confirm it's age and that it was broken, and getting the dept of consumer affairs involved to get my money back.

    I've only ordered two engines from SEW but both without a hitch.

    SEW sells factory overruns, take offs, out of production engines and engines from OPE manufacturers who end up not producing the the equipment equal to the number of engines they have ordered from the engine manufacturer. I would strongly suggest you thoroughly research the engine you intend to purchase. Make sure there is a shortblock, replacement engine and individual parts available. Like Rob, I cannot and will not recommend them as a source.

    Hello all,
    I am not new to lawnsite but I just recently registered. I have a rather specific question regarding Small Engine Warehouse and the 5.5 hp toro engine they are peddling. I just ordered the 6 hp Kawasaki from there and it had a 7/8" crank which was foolish on my part because it doesnt fit the commercial deck/pulley. Well, with that crisis solved I thought I would purchase the 5.5 toro for $165.00!!! It claims to have a "tapered and threaded" crank. It looks EXACTLY like the toro/honda 21" I have right now. Is this going to fit with a standard toro/exmark deck and hardware? Can anyone shed some light on this stuff? By the way, SEW said the engine is made for a 'BBC'. What the hell is that?
