    That is pretty amazing stats Paul! On the bright side, honda seems to have the small engine thing figured out. Mine sit all winter and fire right up with a couple pulls every spring.

    Yeah, Honda is a good choice.

    Seems to me anyhow.
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    I would think the Honda would be as good as the Tanaka. I have a Honda 5.5 hp on my log splitter for 12 years now no issues aside from a broken spring in the pull started. It sits outside uncovered has since day one, probably my most abused and neglected piece of equipment I own. No, it is the most abused piece of equipment I own.

    Ain't gonna happen

    With the current environment of retail sales for the arb industry it doesn't make it conducive to investing money in r&d

    I pretty much gave up investing time in ropetek when Sherrill ripped of the com systems and bought out TreeStuff

    Funny thing is since I quit investing in Ropetek and focused on the tree service my income has increased exponentially

    Pretty sure every inovator will tell you the same story
