Sounds like it should work OK, I would go with an engine between 13hp & 15hp with a centrifugal clutch. I wouldn’t worry about the frame but I would install a stronger blade tensioning spring. I would also perform any modifications in such a way to be able to quickly and easily return the saws back to completely stock form. I would also purchase an extended warranty from the store.
