My EZ 25/45 broke down yesterday, just as I was finish a job had 10 strokes of the wand and I would of been done. this is the first time in 600 hrs it let me down. the elec fuel pump stop working. so I took my mixing bucket and borrow some gas from a law mat guy, disconnect the hose and stuck it in the bucket and she started right up. I read on here that the kolher motor have a pump built in them, thank god. fininst the job and went to auto parts store and bought a new one and now she is working. what a POS how do you guy do it when you have to always work on the tm to keep it running. I hope that this is it for now.
I hope that this tm does not turn into a nightmare like so many has on this site.

I think I would post about it daily. Maybe file a lawsuit. All sarcasm aside how much was the pump. I've always figured it would be the first thing to go. I even thought about buying one ahead of time

I run mine without an inline pump. Works great!

Well that EZ is a beast but let me tell you thats nothing I wish my went that long. I can tell you I have learned so much about fixing my truck mount with all the things I've dealt with. Nick is a good guy and means well but I really expected to be trouble free for a while especially being new and my first TM.

My next TM is going to be a direct drive unit. Period.

Don't get me wrong my current TM has been OK...but its temperamental...i have now gotten to know it to the point that all the little aggravating things about it are 95% eliminated.

But there is no way i would hire someone to help me and turn them loose alone with it...no way.
