Why is a booster pump needed for a Solo 451?

I am interested in purchasing the Solo 451 however I am more than a little concerned about individuals asking about the need for a booster pump. What company manufacturers the 2-cycle engine on the Solo 451. The warranty of only 90 days seems to indicate a lack of reiablity? Maybe I should purchased the Sthil 450?


Most applications do not require a booster pump for the Solo 451. You can view the operation of this machine in our video on the product page. The warranty on the engine itself is two years. Solo manufacturers all their own engines in Germany.
