Starts fast, typically one pull. rotates 360 degrees. Lightweight
Water cooling port clogged when encountering light silt in shallow water. Difficult to clean. Required using a air compressor to clean out.
Overall this is a great engine, no vapors, strong for its size and very light weight. I was considering other engines but this engine fell right in the middle with its price point. It is replacing a 2 hp Honda.
