First use was today. Started brush hogging out back in the scrub brush clearing a path or two to haul some tree limbs down out of the woods. About 2 years ago a 25" oak dropped in a storm. It was my neighbors and it fell over into my lot. I cut it up the other day & clean up is today.

All went well hogging but after I hauled a run it quit running.

A new part had caused a "no spark" issue.

The handle bar button switch! When removed the tang that held it together was lifted and the button was falling apart. I bent it back and installed it. If it fails again I will be searching for another design

Run it 2.5 hours, quite satisfied. Great runner

Nice!

I've seen a bunch of machines fitted with toggle switches instead of the pushbutton. It may be a more robust design, and it for sure avoids the problem of lifting off the button before the engine completely stops, and getting a kick back.
