    Don't do what I did and try to get by 2 seasons with out a trimmer rack. This is what happens when u have workers that don't put stuff the way you tell them to!

    There is this little nut that holds the air filter cover onto the carb... and it broke off and fell into the engine while in transit... But what happened was my worker picked it up and the a/f cover fell off... So i was like what the... Beleive it or not but i had ordered a trimmer rack 2 days earlier..... So i took the carb off and tried to find this peice no luck... went to the dealer he did the same thing. I used it for a week! then one day "CLICK" so I went to the dealer ordered up a new short block... $125 bones... so i go to transfer the flywheel and the stupid key that locks it into place was also broken $65 part! so i paid just about 200 bones for a 300 machine!
