    A customer bought a vermeer sc252 and drought it to me, said it had no power. I went out to move it in to my shop and i fire it up and walk around to the other side and it shooting oil and about a 2-3 inch flame out the side of the head. Apparently it blew a head gasket and no one fixed it. some people don't know what maintenance means.

    This doesn't surprise me with the "throw away" society today.

    Wow, that a deep gouge. They had to run it a long time with a blown head gasket.

    That head can be welded and resurfaced by any reputable automotive machine shop if new ones are too expensive.

    Rest of the gasket is fine, just that one little spot can't mean much,

    Sheesh
