*FREE*FREE*FREE* (well, I'll trade for a cup of coffee)

I am cleaning out my garage and have for *FREE*FREE*FREE* (well, I'll trade for a cup of coffee) a ECHO generator - (see pics).

The generator has a bad AVR and will cost more than $300 for the part which is unbelieveable. Sooooooooooooo, I was saving the generator for its frame, wheels and most importantly the gas tank in hopes I would find a small ONAN or Kohler genset to take the place of the Echo's motor and gen end. By the way, the motor runs 100%.

Here is the catch - Although it is free, I will trade for a cup of coffee and a chat on Onans while drink it -AND- YOU must come to pick it up. It is not worth the time and cost to ship it. I a located in Boonton, New Jersey.

If there are no takers, I will throw it on Craigs List for $25.00. The tankalone is worth it.

I forgot to mention, for a size comparison my 15.0 JC is next to the Echo.

Johnny there are AVRs available on ebay and amazon for quite cheap if you can figure out which one fits, I have run across them in looking for ones for larger generators. That is if you want to recoup some of your investment. Cheers Dan

that frame and etc is perfect to fit a cck or bfa in.. jut have to cut the frame and widen it, and raise it about 6 inches and make the top removable.. ive done 4 like that.. I like to use a smaller gas tank about half the size and set it over the gen end to keep it away from the hot exhaust..

perfect for 4 hours or so of run time.. or keep a 5 gallon jug a few feet away..

that is a Kawasaki engine. great little engines

Looking at it it also has a bolt on gen head bell housing. Much easier to match up to another engine if you can find one with a tapered shaft crank. If you weren't on the other side of the country I'd camp on your doorstep.

Vanman, Sorry, the green one sitting next to it is not part of the deal.

BigBlockChev, I checked into some of the "other" AVRs sold which most, if not all, float in from China and are cheap in price and maybe quality too. Anyway, since I have 3 other generators I did not want to spend any money on the Echo. I found the Echo in the city dump and took it home 3 years ago. Over the past year, I found anther Echo generator in the dump and the AVR was missing on it. I assume it went bad, removed then after the shock of replacement cost, it was dumped.

Yellowlister, I hoped soeone like you would scoop it up to do exactly as you pointed out. Planning any vacation in New Jersey anytime soon?

Thaumaturge, actually the engine is good. It is the AVR in the gen head that took a crap.

-- Anyway, YOU all know what is going to happen..... Within a week AFTER I et rid of the Echo, an AVR will fall out of the sky and into my hands without any effort looking for one.

Throw in that "green thing" next to it and you have a deal.

I sure wish I was a little closer, I would grab it. Thank you very much for offering. I'm sure I could raid my junkbox for the parts to make a voltage regulator, they really aren't that complex.

I'd travel there for the red thing to the left of the green thing behind the orange thing.
It would be a long trip, but worth it. It'd even bring coffee and a pack of Iced Vovo's but the coffee might be cold and the biscuits eaten by the time I got there.

Cheers Scott
