My snow blower seems to run slower than I would expect, governed at about 3030 rpm. I found the service manual, but it tells me to look in service microfiche #30, and a far bit of searching later I still don't have the spec in hand. It looks like rated torque for the OHSK120 engine is about 2500, but it sounds like it could be happier at a higher speed. I know I'd be happier if the thing would move a little quicker from place to place!
