Would I purchase again knowing I may have motor issues, good question
I bought this a few years ago, don;t remember the price. Right out the box, I couldn’t get it started. Eventually I figured out the directions to push the primer bulb 10x to start didn’t work. I have to pump it 20x and then when it starts I need to keep pumping the primer bulb till it warms up a little. Once I figured that out, it runs fine.
