Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Will tires hold air? (8/20/19 9:32 PM)
A: Based on the condition of looking at them and the fact they have been sitting in the same spot for a number of years I would say it is unlikely that they will hold any air. In my opinion, if you are interested in one or more of them I would err on the side of caution and assume they need new tires. (8/21/19 3:55 PM)
Q: can you show more pictures? inside, plate, engine. Thank you (8/20/19 10:12 PM)
A: I will try to add more pictures as soon as possible. I will update this answer once I have done so. Update: I have added a picture of the inside and the plate for this generator. (8/21/19 3:56 PM)
