Over the last two days I have finished the service on the 824XL and have delivered that to the rental property for the tenant to use. Retrieved my Power Max 826 HD from its storage spot at the rental property and brought it back to our new house to be serviced and used here. Power Max started on the first pull. I kind of forgot how cold blooded the OHV Briggs can be, but once it warmed up it performs like a champ. Much nicer to run than the 824XL. The quick stick chute control is awesome and it throws much further than the XL.
