Why is there no hose with it? Because the people were selfish. At the dump I’ll look for appliances or tools with the cord cut off, guarantee they work excellent, but someone was making space, and wanted to be sure no one else could use it. And most often if discarded it’s a petty issue with a power switch, or similar. Urbanites hardly ever wear stuff out, it goes out of fashion, or they move.
Last year about this date I found a Honda push mower at the dump that appeared to be in suspiciously good shape, oil was clean and good, turned over well. So it came home. The spark plug wire was off. With gas added it started up with 2 pulls. Wouldn’t cut grass though, turned out the blade was removed. So I drilled holes in another blade from my stock to fit the Honda mount, and now it’s my best mower by far.
I have to admire the Honda carbs, very good starting system, should be mandated on all small engines. And that it ran great without the flywheel effect of the blade says something.
And had I not scooped it, it would have been crushed in the scrap metal pile… Very disturbing how people’s minds work.
