So I am looking at Horizontal engines in the 12-13hp range to replace a bad one. Looking online and small engine warehouses I have narrowed it by dimensions that I need (overall size, crank diameter and length). Looking for at recoil engines, all with fuel tanks and mufflers. The Honda is significantly cheaper. My experience and what I have always heard is that they are a much better engine. Comparing to Kohler and Briggs is there a reason they are much less? I am talking under $600 for the Honda 13hp and almost $800 for a Briggs equivalant. I have a Honda on one of my Blowers and its been great. Any reason not to go with Honda?
