    I have this engine on a chipper shreader vac, and have had no problems thus far.

    I have a 5.5 hp intek on a tiller and it is definately a good engine. It has no faults whatsoever.

    Yes, The Intek line does have the cast iron cylinder bore.

    I have a couple commercial guy's using W/B blowers with the Intek and have had no major problems with them. They are a good engine if maintenance is performed properly as with any engine.
