Pros: Good for short time, be aware of what parts are available after purchase.
Cons: Parts are expensive, gears are brass, wear down easily.
The price was pretty reasonable and the first two years almost trouble free. But the the trouble began, starting began take longer, even with new gas and spark plug; then the tines began to make noise, finally locking up to the point of no motion at all. When taken to the dealer, they informed me that this was quite normal for this model. The price to replace the worn gear (sorry, can't do buy the gear, you need the whole assemble) was only $179.
But the price when I bought it new was only $219?
Well, Honda does not replace the gear only and if you want it repaired, $179!
