DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!!!!! Its a terrible burden! Ive owned one of these and had to return it to the seller 4 times in the first 3 weeks. It is almost impossible to start and keep it running, and runs better when choked than on standard operation. Once you use it for more that 20 minutes, it will die, and you will need to wait a couple of hours before it will start again. The tires continually go flat due to poorly designed valve stems that tear. If the temp outside is below 35, it WILL NOT START AT ALL without heating it up! In the time I have owned it I have only been able to use it 8-9 times without it failing completely before my small driveway is finished. After working so hard to start it so many time, the recoil starter cord has now snapped. After many attempts to have it serviced, it is no better. I've wasted SO MUCH time and money trying to get it running. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY! This thing is going to the JUNK YARD!
