    A member pointed to some 43cc mitsubishi brushcutters on feebay.Does anyone know if new Mitsubishi's are made to japanese (tanaka/subaru/honda) or chinese standards (harbor freight, and other take yer chances motors)?
    Really wanting more goose from my GEBE set up and tanakas are 'spensive!

    Most stuff comes out of China these days, but maybe that's a good thing because just about any item that comes from Japan (post 2011) is mildly radioactive if luck runs your way and a hot potatoe if you're unlucky.

    Buying Japanese these days is a "deadly" serious issue that may be the cause of a life changing experience - something to think about !!!

    Good on ya Fabian, something I didn't take into consideration.Glad this site is here, I love learning from others.
    I'm thinking I should just stick with the EH035, I just mounted a large front fairing (Velokit EZ-1) on the bike and hopefully that will help buck the wind a bit and give me a couple MPH.
