Waste of time & money.
My Plate Compactor sat outside for a few months. I was working hard and didn't want to spend my time to chase parts and repair myself. Machine had bad gas, broken throttle cable and pull start handle. My instructions were to drain fuel and replace broken parts. Owner called and said it needed new gas tank and new carburetor. There was discussion about tank previously with superficial rust on outside but spotless on inside. Not wanting to spend $200. I P/U brought it home, pulled tank, cleaned and filled w/ fresh gas. Fired right up! Reported my experience to owner and he said there is a "right way of doing things." Yea I get it, charge for unnecessary parts and labor and ignore customers requests. Total waste of my time. Machine runs fine, I still need to go to another shop and P/U throttle cable.
