    Cheaply built by Orville - Ithaca, New YorkJune 05, 2012
    Motor would not start due to carb being stuck wide open! Once started would not slow to idle, had to adjust needle valve. Cover does not fit correctly, latches come loose while running. Oil leaks from case when laid on side.

    LP OUTBARD by Dale - Rice Lake, WisconsinJune 14, 2012
    When I added oil there was a leak at the drain bolt because the washer does not seal properly. I corrected that problem an also the hold down clips to the motor cover are porely made. i was also disapointed that the engine is made in China. That said the motor starts and runs well and looks very nice. I also like the feature of handles front and back.Although I have only used this motor twice it seems that it will handle my canoe very well.

    Propane beats gas by Terry - Las Vegas, NevadaOctober 28, 2012
    Propane is so much cleaner and easier to use. The motor worked fine right out of the box. It is fairly light weight and the twin grab handles make mounting easy. I have only used it a short time, so the question of long term durability has yet to be answered. I will try to update this review at the end of next season. There is also the question of propane availability. I have so far been able to take all I need in my 30Lb tank. I carry a couple of small disposable spares just in case. but have not needed them. Probably won't be an issue unless you plan an extended excursion, which my require some advance planning about where to refuel.

    Not a bad buy by Hank - Maddison, WisconsinAugust 07, 2012
    I got this particular model early in the season to replace my gas one that had just about had it, I liked the idea of switching to propane, and while I am being more "green" there isn't a whole lot of difference. I tried to figure out if I am saving $$$ on fuel and it's hard to tell but it certainly is cleaner and easier than gas. Works great, easy start, and overall not a bad buy.

    Great Concept by Peter - Manhattan Beach, CaliforniaJuly 24, 2012
    This product is based on the Yamaha F4 design. The basic engine is built in China and modified here in the states to run on propane. I particular liked the two easy-to-use handles inherent in the F4 design. My unit arrived with an oil stain in the bottom of the box. After calling the company, I was told that it was likely due to the oil not having been fully drained after testing (each unit is reported tested individually before being packaged up). As it turned out, however, the oil leak continued after I put it into operation and I ultimately returned it to and obtained a refund from the manufacturer. They were very cooperative. I read later that someone else had an oil leak problem which turned out to be simply a loose drain screw - perhaps that was the case with mine. Given all the problems with small engine carburetors fouled with ethanol laced gasoline, I really do think the time for propane engines has come, particularly for infrequently used outboards. I wish this company well.

    Chinese Made, Chinese Quality by a CustomerDecember 14, 2012
    Live in WA purchased motor this site, quick delivery and easy transaction! Motor not so great. Had issues right out of the box. Wouldn't idle correctly so had to call and they walked me through it. Never ran correctly, idles high but when in gear is normal. Motor sounds clunky and like it slightly knocks. At WOT motor has a miss once in a while but runs okay. Hood wont close right, latches extremely flimsy. Paint has came off skeg very quickly. Electrical inside motor look cheap and piping has shoddy welds. Refueling is a hassle and I don't trust this motor on long trips. Thought it was American Company with American Price, disappointment being made in China, obvious Yamaha knockoff.

    Lehr 5hp Long Shaft by Stan - Denver, ColoradoJune 24, 2013
    The Lehr 5hp Long Shaft is easy to start by either the first or second pull. After running full bore then reducing down to an idle the motor quits. You have to keep the throttle up a bit to prevent shut off. I adjusted the outside carb screw but I think what is happening is the screw is vibrating loose. I have not had the outboard long enough to fine tune the engine. I am going to try lock tight and then test it on the water. The other item I am not pleased about, as mention numerous times in other post, are the fasteners to the top cover. The alignment is off and the front won’t even clasp. I read this will be remedied later. Overall the outboard is great with a couple of items to address.

    Rick@ Lake Tahoe by Kevin - San Jose, CaliforniaSeptember 01, 2013
    I purchased the Lehr 5.0hp for my Lake Tahoe trip. Hoping the propane motor would live up to being environmentally friendly. I unloaded the motor to put on my new 14 foot inflatable boat and found a puddle of oil on the cars carpet. I wiped down the motor only to find a oilshean on the water after mounting. The Lehr 5hp Propane motor sounded like a diesel engine when running. It turned out to be a raddle trap leaking oil. Back home and the motor mounted on the bench still leaks puddles of oil. NOT GOOD NOT HAPPY Rick @ Tahoe
