I won this item in a local auction. Took it to the warehouse and hooked it to a deep cycle 12v battery and it shifted modes fluidly without hesitation. The motor is still very very able in this old unit. I'll try and shine it up a little better before I ship unless told other wise. I haven't cleaned or even wiped it off yet. The pictures are of its condition exactly how I found it. Message me with any questions or concerns. Thanks and have a great eBay day!
