My $1.00 FS120 - Tooting my own horn!

Its been a crazy week. If it could go wrong, it did.

Today was a victory for me though.

A week or so ago I got an older FS120 for free. It was rough looking. Busted primer bulb, smelled like old cheese.

Today, while getting a part for a mower, I got the bulb too so I could fiddle with it.

Replaced the bulb, cleaned out the carb, adjusted the idle screw a bit, greased up the head and WHAMO. Next to free trimmer.

Its heavy as hell compared to my 100, but its got some good power to it.

Just thought I'd brag a little since this week I've had my fair share repairs and setbacks.
