Factory run and tested before delivery!
The oil was in the Honda engine before being delivered as it was tested before it left the factory! Most equipment with gas engines comes with a bottle of oil with none in the engine. Therefore, it was not tested before leaving the factory. The product is heavy-233lbs so it's best to leave on truck or trailer if possible The wheel and handles makes this 233 lb. machine movable by one person. Runs quieter than most as it is belt driven. And have quick recovery with more than one pneumatic tool being used. 5.5 hp engine being used rather than blowing lower amp circuits and great for the field when no electric is available. And of course the Makita brand name is known for quality as I have several dependable tools of theirs..
