    I got mine at the beginning of the season and so far it been pretty good machine. Its starts quickly and for most situations has plenty of power. the only thing that sort of bothers me is that it doesnt hold much string. Just my thoughts

    I just talked with another LCO yesterday who had commented on how he was having troubles with his carb on his. I think he said he had a 170???

    Anyhow, he said these units were quite a bit hevier than the Robin NB253 and he didnt think the Mitsubishi motor put out as much power as the Robins.

    He did say that the great thing about them was that they were clearanced priced at $179 so he got two JD for the price of one Robin. :D
