trot built snowblower

they had flooded the engine badly, after i got it going, and used it, i advised them to return it, based on my opinion of it's poor quality. these people are office worker's, no mechanical knowledge. they want to keep it, their decision. i showed them how to properly start it, it now fires on the 1st pull, but it must sit there and run at 1/2 choke for at LEAST 8 to 10 minutes before the choke can be opened fully. of course there are no carb adjustments, etc. i expect many failures with this, no matter where it was purchased.
