Pretty sad, with those paint blobs on it and all. It runs but is a little noisey. Handle is good, solid in its socket; grip is good. Enquire if you have need of anything.

Who knows where it's been. Sitting for a long time, perhaps in a garage where they dabbled (pun intended) with house paint from time to time. Belts are very wilted, yet the power drive still works. I haven't done anything with it; that cast aluminum hood ought to pump up the scrap aluminum numbers when the time comes. But not like a Kirby.
