"This motor by far, has been the best motor I have ever had. I Havent given this motor any love at all, and have not been kind to it. It is stored in an unheated shed over the winter in Canada,and every spring I fire it up to use and I have never had to pull the cord more than 3 times. It still has the same power year after year,and is always reliable. The cart that it is mounted on is rusted completely out and needs to be replaced,but the motor has always been faithful. I have had an 11horse Honda Motor since 1994 and I have NEVER changed the oil in it or replaced anything. I wish that they could build everything to the same standards!!! The only complaint that I have is that the fuel tank is not large enough sometimes."
