Hi, just went to Home Depot, they have a couple used ones, they will sell me a non-starting unit for $200... is this a good deal? I checked the compression in the store >120psi, so that looks fine. The ignition seemed weak as well, I pulled the plug out and turned out the lights while pulling starter, did not see any spark. But then I touched the plug with my hand and got a good tingle when starting, so not sure if the coil is the issue. I can certainly try the "clean the muffler" routine, but I get the impression that these units are hard to start and then start to go "bad"... They take a lot of punishment, concrete dust is nasty stuff.
Is $200 too much to pay for this, assuming I might have to put parts in? I have a pretty big job coming up and if I could get it at this price, add a $100 blade I might be in good shape.
