My 13hp has a 2 year warranty.... if I break the pull start on it HF takes it back no questions asked and I get a new motor since they dont sell parts and dont pay for service to the engine.
Like anything if you take care of it then it will last.

It was done in 45 min's , added oil and gas and the motor was running . In the water it's smooth and pushes the boat easily . Very happy with the result's . The only thing is , it takes big turns . But for a price tag of a little under 550 , I can deal with that . One more week until teal season guy's , good luck
