My main problem, though, was with the company itself; we had trouble finding the phone number on ebay (there was an online link that went nowhere), and only after requesting to ebay for the number did we finally get through to AGR.However, AGR did not once answer our phone calls or emails, and we had to again request ebay to contact AGR about our problem.After this, they answered my emails, but although I told them about the problem, they wanted photos from me.
The 5.5 HP models are selling for over $750 You can get the same 5.5HP model without the Honda Sticker for $349 I suggest you contact AGR Machinery and ask them about it, that's what I did and was happy with their explanation, which I wont divulge on a public forum.
I'm also happy with my Honda generator, it looks like a honda, starts like a honda and runs like a honda. However, my suggestion would be to contact Honda Australia instead of AGR Machinery (by the way, I can't find any registered business under this name anywhere – ASIC or ABN search) and ask them if this is a genuine Honda engine.
I did have to change the fuel line but that could have been due to running it on ethanol blended fuel. Their business name seems to be: "Mills International Trading" ABN:45 117 885 828 I've purchased a couple of chainsaws from them in the past... but they appear to do a hell of a lot of shill bidding, don't expect any of their items to sell at low prices ;) Hi CRMExpert, My father bought an AGR Machinery generator.
May I suggest you contact AGR Machinery and ask them about it, that's what I did and was happy with their explanation, which I wont divulge on a public forum. He was using it to power up batteries for a rural home, after a few months it died.
I'm also happy with my Honda generator, it looks like a honda, starts like a honda and runs like a honda. From what I remember it was wired poorly and the heat from it was giving off made it so it was irreparable.
