NOW LISTEN 1 You are paying
17 cents for your gasoline. Say
you pay $150.00 or more for a six
horse fiower gasoline engine,
other makes, and run it for 300
days, which is not very long. The
price of a 0 horse power Chopie
is $275.00. The Chopie will save
you $175.00 to $210.00 in gaso
line every 300 days you run it.
Now, you pay $150.00 for that
cheap engine, mid the saving of
$210.00, which Ihe Chopie will
save you, which makes your cheap
engine cost you $300.00 at the end
of 300 days.
