    More accessible, little bit more of fuel, plus you can just reach behind you for the pull starter easier. Exhaust is also further away from you.

    dont forget you might also have to extend your fuel line if you go ahead and rotate it to reach the bottom of the fuel tank , when i ordered the 33cc tanaka it was already rotated the 90's and just like zevo says their is alot more benefits than cons.
