Friend working at the mower shop sent me a text today asking if I wanted a pump-less pressure washer and an ariens rototiller for free, so of course I said yes.

I did some snooping on the engine and it turned out to be a 212cc Rato. Also known as a Predator 212.

When I first pulled the engine over it got stuck halfway around, turned it back arround and there was the end of a sparkplug stuck to the flywheel magnet.

Following that, the engine started and ran off of carb cleaner, but I need to go through the carb as it won't run any longer than that. Cool little free find.
