    sweet might need to gear it higher to get the full potential out of it haha. Should try converting one with tracks that would be a real beast.

    It puts out about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds under load at 2600 rpm. I increased the engine pulley size from 2 inch to 4 1/4. That puts the auger at stock rpm with the engine at 1800. It will rev to 3600 but it is really not neccessary. At that rpm the Impeller spins at about 1800 rpm (not sure the auger assembly would stay together for very long).
