Customer Service is Terrible/Non-existent.
I order the Stark 61032 online. When I opened the box to assemble the compactor, the Owner’s Manual referred to the Engine Manual. I found a torn cover to this manual in the box with a title Gasoline Engine Owner’s Manual”. I call and emailed the contact information in the Owner’s Manual, but none responded to nearly a dozen requests. I finally submitted this issue to the BBB and they responded with a few days. They cannot find the manual that I have the partial front cover.

    works well
    I was skeptical about this compactor, as it was less money than most by far. It works well. The small size is perfect for most homeowners. Rental was $100 per day. This is a bargain

      Missing most of the parts needed to assemble
      I needed a new compactor quickly and renting was getting expensive so I bought this because it was a good price and shipping was quick. To make a long story short the compactor showed up with pretty much nothing needed to assemble it. The parts that did show up must have been for a different machine. The air filter doesn't fit, the handle for the throttle cable doesn't fit on the handle bar, there is no hooks that hold up the wheels and there is one bolt and one washer for the entire assembly.
