I thought Dax had the only decent 4-stroke out there, before I found about them. But, heck, he's out of stock too and I don't feel like waiting.Other than it being out of stock?
Personally, I think its the best 4 stroke frame mount out there. The engine is decent (according to many reports), but I sourced a Honda engine to use with a kit I got without the engine (same kit, different supplier- don't ask, I bought it a year ago). It is a stronger gearbox than the JL Hoot which is more common and the adjustable mounting plate is a must.
Just called up BEC and they're out of stock until Sept.I got this engine at Small Engine Warehouse:
Small Engine Warehouse: GXH50QHA - Honda Engine 2 5hp Horizontal 5 8 x 1 1 4 Shaft Muffler no tank
It fits the Grubee Skyhawk II perfectly. No matter where you get it, if it is a Grubee Skyhawk II, it should be OK.
Dax does not have a frame mount. If you want a frame mount 4 stroke, it seems like kits using the JL Hoot gearbox or the Skyhawk II are all there is- and the Skyhawk is better.
If you want a rack mount, there are plenty of choices and that is what the Dax 4 stroke is- or was when it was available. I heard all good things about it and the possibility of a frame mount in the future, but not yet.
Grubee only designed the gearbox and mounting kit. The engine usually sold with the kit is not Grubee as they do not make 4 strokes. Usually the engine is a Huasheng clone of the Honda. Do a search on Huasheng or just look around here and you will see more information.
