No, I sold that blower to someone for $100. Was still working after 28 years. (Honda)
I bought a new one last Fall with electric start assist. Ariens. 24" Delux. One hell of a machine. Glad I bought it. Pulling on that starter cord is not for me anymore with my bad back and hip. $1,075, and worth every penny. It will outlast me I am sure.
Yes they are. I have an old Honda 4500 kw Super Quiet generator that I purchased back in the early 90's. With the exception of oil changes, filters and batteries the thing hasn't cost me a penny and still cranks every time I turn the key.
Good Morning Chuck. I have a 3500 I bought during the ice storm we had back in 98. It has a Briggs & Statton and every year I have to remove the air filter and give it a shot of ether in order to start it. And it is not electric start, so I wear myself out cranking on the damn thing in a hurry.
