I got a call the this morning stating a guy wanted to get rid of some yard equipment. I went to his house and he had a Craftsman Leaf Vacuum, Weedeater Blower, Weedeater Hedge Trimmer and Bolens BL150 weedeater. I will post pictures of the vacuum shortly.

 

The Vac runs but will only run while the choke is on. I figured I need to take the carb off and give it a good cleaning!

Actually I gave him 20 bucks. I told him I couldn't just take it for nothing. I feel like I was stealing it if I didn't give him anything.

After reading this post I realized I left a few parts out.

 

Whenever the fella first called me he told me what he had and after he told me I asked him the million dollar question "What do you want for it?" He told me if I came and picked it up today I could have it. After getting to his house and seeing what he had I had to offer him some money. I just happened to have 20 bucks in my pocket so I literally gave the man all the money I had. If I had more I would give it to him.

 

The guy was 81 years old and stated he just couldn't pull start it anymore. The hedge trimmers I started up and used today.
