Has anyone watched this persons videos? I found them last night and there is a lot of usefull tech tips. Is there other comparable links, perhaps written narrative types for those of us on "low bandwidth" connections?

I agree -- his videos and explanations are clear and easy to follow. I have found them to be very helpful.

Just about any time someone who comes here asking for advice on buying a used blower I point them to Donyboy's video on what to look for when buying a used blower. Saves me a ton of explanation. He does a great job on his vids.

I watched a few of his vids. he appears to be a knowledgeable technician. good basic hands on videos. the only thing I noticed was, he deals with newer, late-model machines.

Most of what he's dealing with are in the 10 - 20 year old range, that's not really late model anymore.

I worked at shop, we worked on lots of similar stuff. Most guys that have really old stuff don't bring it in, and usually when they do we wont touch it anyway due to parts availability and because quite frankly it's a bit of a liability dealing with equipment so old it doesn't have safety features.
