Ya get what ya pay for, the Harbor Freight ones are cheap Chineese pieces of shit. Get a Honda and forget about it 'cept for gas. I have let my 2000 sit for 6 months with old gas, and it'll start 3rd pull without fail, SUPER quiet too, WELL worth the extra $. (unless ya like buyin stuff twice!)
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
