Wonder how long the spark plug has been out?

Plenty of crap in the cylinder I bet!

I'm gonna side with Auburn on this one.  I think the members here have more than that.  $1200 he must be crazy.

Wow....that guy should be writing movie scripts. These sellers never cease to amaze me lately.

And yes its made by motomower, who also made the massey executive.

Actually Porter Cable sold their lawn and garden tractor line to Moto-Mower in the very early '60's. Porter Cable also owned the Roto-Tiller line at that time and sold it off too at the same time but it was bought by a different company. Moto-Mower went on to badge them as,their own and as Massey,they were also sold under the Lawnmaster name. I have had two badged as Lawnmaster. The last one,I got rid of this past summer.
