The Zongshen GB200A is a 196 cc (11.96 cu·in) natural aspirated single-cylinder four-stroke air-cooled internal combustion small gasoline engine with a horizontal shaft from GB-series, manufactured by Zongshen Power Co. for snow throwers.
The GB200A engine has a single-cylinder, overhead valve (OHV) design, and recoil starter. This general-purpose engine used a carburetor fuel system, transistorized magneto ignition system, splash type lubricating system, and forced-air cooling system. The ZS GB200 is equipped with a 3.8 L (1.0 US. gal. 0.84 Imp. gal.) fuel tank.
This engine produced 5.7 PS (4.2 kW; 5.6 HP) at 3,600 rpm of horsepower and 11.5 N·m (1.2 kg·m, 8.5 ft·lb) of peak torque.
