This will show the engine sizes the medium kit was installed on, the type of boat, along with the weight, speed, propeller, and RPMs reached.
Most people put the SPS Swamp Runner Medium Kit (57lbs) with the 13hp Predator Engine (73lbs) – This setup will total 130-lbs.
You could also use a 16hp or 18hp Vanguard V-twin engine that we sell on mudmotorkit.com
The 1436 riveted jon boat is the most widely used boat for this kit.
For example, User: durandbagwell86 reached 36-mph in a 15′ wooden jon boat with a modified 420cc engine spinning 7200 RPMs with the 8″ stock prop.
However, most customers use a stock 420cc predator engine and put it on a 1436 jon boat to achieve a speed of around 16 mph with a full load and 20+ mph with one person and a light load.
If you want more power, the next step up is the SPS Large Swamp Runner Kit (75lbs) which is normally paired with a 22hp Predator engine (106lbs) totaling 181 lbs. OR paired with a 23hp Vanguard that we sell here on mudmotorkit.com.
