It was a back up blower got it last year in the summer used it on about 6-8 lawns. Sat for 3 months and started on first pull. Starts better then my Red max 8001 !! LOL. I only use Echo powerplend 2 stroke. New gas, and clean filter. Very powerful for its size. Not sure how much its worth but we can Neg. Looks mint, runs mint.
