I never have problems with neighbours complaining as they have 2 kids and that covers all engine noise lol! lol! lol! I did have a neighbour stick his head over the fence only because he was interested so never any problems with crank ups here Very Happy

Well like I've said I havn't had any complaints yet but I also bought a cheap petrol strimmer that's louder then any of my engines so if they want to start i'm ready lol! lol! lol! by the way the petrol strimmer is for a lawn that's 20ft x 12ft so it's a bit like using a sledge hammer to crack a walnut lol! lol! lol!
