    Hello. I have a fisher pro-caster sander and I need to put a new engine in. I was looking for some advice on which engine to buy. I am on a fixed budget and want to get the most for my money. Any suggestions?

    Fourth the Honda. I hear the new Brigs are pretty good though but I wouldn't bet on it. Ever thought of switching to electric? I have never used electric though, so can't comment.
