“Junk”

Written on: 31/07/2019 by tyMonaghan281 (1 review written)

Fuel control did not work from day one. Carburetor has EPA plug that has a jet under it that clogs up and cannot be fixed. Coil went bad $142.00. Engine seized up after 20 hours of use. Junk… Read Full Review

“Tohatsu 3.5hp”

Written on: 11/12/2018 by Mikewood7 (1 review written)

I've had my Tohatsu 3.5hp from new and it's been brilliant. The only thing I will say is don't leave any fuel in the carburetor for months on end. Even if you run it dry there is still a tiny bit of fuel left in the float bowl,which will turn into little green crystaline particles and block the jets. Taking the carb off is pretty easy job but you don't want to be doing that after every lay up. Just take the cover off and just loosen the screw on the float bowl and drain the rest of the fuel… Read Full Review

“Tohatsu 3.5 4 stroke. Problems starting”

Written on: 04/07/2018 by Morris99 (1 review written)

I purchased a new 2017 Tohatsu 3.5 four-stroke three weeks ago and have tremendous difficulty in getting it started. I have followed the instructions by the dealer for starting as well as those of the handbook. I previously had a 2003 Tohatsu 3.5 two-stroke and seldom had problems starting it. I know that the pull technique is different with the four-stroke and have followed it carefully. The one pattern that occasionally works is if I give it full throttle. It is as if the engine is not… Read Full Review

“It’s a lemon”

Written on: 30/01/2018 by Phillipsib279 (1 review written)

After great service from TOHATSU 9.8 2-stroke I decided to downsize to a TOHATSU 3.5 4-stroke. WHAT A MISTAKE! Hard to start, runs erratically, stalls . Everything you DON’T want in an outboard when you’re out on a reef. Within 6 weeks it was back with the dealer who reported “There’s nothing wrong with it”. Sure, it ran fine at low revs for a minute in the test tank but it still plays up constantly in the real world. If there is “nothing wrong with it” then truly I have bought a… Read Full Review
