What are you using and what do you like or dislike. Looking at a Solo 433 and Hudson. The Hudson is about $200 less.

The Hudson also does not have parts available. I use a Solo 433 and if something needs replacing on it, I can order it online from Solo. Now I understand that the 433 is also 4 cycle. No mixing of oil and gas.

However, my preference goes to the Maruyama MS 074. The pump is capable of higher output and the tank holds 25 liter rather than 23 for the Solo. Parts are just as available if you order online.

I read old posts where you complained about parts availability for Maruyama. Have they improved?

I now bypass the dealers and order direct from online vendors. If Maruyama were closed source like how Shindaiwa, and Stihl are, they would not have my business.

Ive been using the solo 4 Cycle since January. Happy with it so far, in fact just bought another one. Got it from Gemplers.
