I was curious on on what motor and horsepower to get for a Brandt 8”x36’ auger.

We only use this 8”x36’ auger a week or week and a half out of a whole season of farming for treating our pea and wheat seed. We aren’t looking for something expensive and a lot of horsepower. We had a V twin 16hp Briggs and Stratton motor on there before. Any info would greatly appreciated!

27 hp ******* with EFI would work you will want EFI for sure Briggs are also good don’t get a Honda they’re good for smaller 13 hp and lower but not bigger engines
