What a great deal.  That really was a seal at $20 but if he can't use them any more...  My FIL is 80 and he has gone to just about everything electric except his mower which is a snapper.  Last year he sent me a blower and weed trimmer that he said didn't run.  Nether had pre-mix gas in them although he swore up and down he put pre-mix in there.

It's powered by a 5 hp Briggs. I cleaned the carb today and it runs like a champ. To test it out I went to the woods in front of my house. It worked great and the only thing that shut it down was me uncovering a couple of snakes. After that I was officially done. Long, short, fat and skinny I dislike them all.

I know they are itty bitty snakes but where there small ones there are big ones.

My wife would have brought those snakes home. She actually had a worm snake at one time.

Some day he's going to see one of those somewhere, and cry when he realizes what it's worth....

That's a good score.  :thumbs:

He knew what it was worth. It was just sitting in his yard going to waste. Plus he went with a dbl bagger for his mower. The guy had a 400 dollar weed eater and 700 dollar backpack blower. He obviously was not hurting for money.
