Digital lazer Tach

Bought it from Amazon for $35.00 and put some supplied reflective tape on engine pulley, the Tach showed 3558 rpm for the 11hp Tec full throttle. Seems to be exact and I love to buy small toys like that, beats the hassle to bring it to small engine shop + the cost. Last year I also bought a Lazer temperature digital meter, it's very handy at this time of the year to find outside air leaks in the outside walls near doors and windows. I tend to buy these on the premise I save in the end. Can be used anywhere you can charge beer money at friends.

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

Thank you for the excellent review. Some people buy tools and use them once because they are specialized for a particular job, the temp sensor seems to have multiple uses.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I'm sure you will read the instructions but make sure you are just a couple feet from where you will point it normally the belt pulley.

"Instructions, we need no stinking instructions". If all else fails - read the instructions.

It's likely a "laser" tachometer and an "infrared" temperature sensor. A lazer is what they use in Sci-Fi movies, just sayin'

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
