The machine arrived a day early on the truck. It took about 3-4 hours to get it out of the crate and unloaded. There was oil in the crankcase. Had to connect the battery. The machine started immediately with no problem. It runs great with plenty of
power. It uses quite a bit of fuel, but they all do. I have only about 15-20 hours on the machine so far, but I would definitely buy it again. The transmission is excellent. Really like this machine.
