Eakins makes a good point about Suzuki's financial condition and the realities of emissions regs. Suzuki took a huge bath in the US car market, so they are probably not the company to look to these...

I ran into the kill switch issue too. Sprayed some WD40 into it and worked the button a bunch of times, works fine now. I think the contacts get water on them and then some corrosion.

Agree with the prior post, but it is funny how finding a used Husky TE610/630 is almost impossible. Everybody wants them now. It seems we are slow on the uptake here.
