Yes, a 'back-up' machine, but it is the only one at the summer house. My other 2 machines are at our primary residence. I might do the impeller modification on the Husqvarna, as it has about a 3/8" gap, from what I can see.
As far as power, the web site states 6.3 HP out of the 208cc engine, so that is pretty good.
My little Toro 521 tops out the field with a 6.5 HP 212cc engine. The Troy-Bilt has only 5.5 HP from its 179cc engine, but the impeller mod makes it king of the throwing distance.
