Re: v8 diesel walk behind

I have seen v8 super charged units also on tracks. Just stupid all that power just to walk along behind.

Re: v8 diesel walk behind

For some reason I'm surprised it doesn't put out enough power at idle to do the job.

Re: v8 diesel walk behind

I had to laugh when I saw a V8 snowblower on YouTube that had a 6.2 GM diesel as the powerplant..it took them about 5 tries to finally get it started and run..

"Lets use to hardest to start,lowest horse power,crankshaft snapping diesel for a snowblower engine"...not really the best choice!..
