Following on from husky hedge cutters not running, now a brand new husky blower will not run on aspen.

 

HAVE I GOT A DODGY CAN OF ASPEN ????

Hi Miker, this would be extremely unlikely  but if you give us a call we can help you get to the bottom of it (you will get straight through to someone who can help). 01929 551557 (ext 2)

 

We have test equipment to analyse the fuel alongside machines which it can be tested in. In over 10 years of working with Aspen and over 7million litres sold in the UK, I can hand on heart say we have never had a "dodgy" can.

By all means go back to pump fuel, its a viable alternative to Aspen but does need better 'fuel management', something easily achieved by using common sense.
That said, your machines are both quite capable of being run on Aspen once the problems with the machines have been identified and sorted. The problems will without doubt lie with the machine rather than the fuel and it would be rather nice to get to the bottom of this.

Whereabouts in the country are you?

But his hedgecutters worked fine until he used Aspen,so the machines can,t have problems surely

Something isn't right here. There's nothing special about aspen, it's not really any different to husky or stihl motomix. It's just alkylate and oil. Neither of the machines have specialist fuel management kit built into them controlled by ECU's and sensors to detect fuel. 

There is absolutely no reason why they shouldn't run on aspen assuming they were perfect before which means there is an issue with both machines. Personally I would take both to the dealership you bought the Aspen from and ask them to take a look at them. Tell them you switched to Aspen and now both machines won't work. If it's the aspen they will say, but more likely they will tell you what's wrong with both your machines.

Well he already said the hedge cutters were working fine before he put Aspen in,so that makes Aspen the problem,just saying,

Well the two options are: There's issue with the kit or its a bad batch of aspen. I don't know how big a single batch of aspen is but I would guess it's a few thousand litres. If the dealership was given a dodgy batch then loads of people would be returning it and it would be flagged with aspen by now. I would go to the dealer you got it from

To be honest, although the OP thinks the hedgecutters were fine before he put Aspen in, it could be that they were actually only adequate and could have been improved by a good PDI, which, if it made them a bit richer may have enabled them to run on Aspen.
Many new machines need a bit of tuning 'out of the box' to achieve best performance .

Its very unlikely that there could be a bad batch of Aspen. The quality control in the Aspen plant at Hindas is second to none and they are absolute experts in the production of Alkylate fuel.  Its what they do, they are fuel specialists.
But they don't rest on their laurels (whatever that means) and every batch is carefully labelled (coded cans) and a sample from every batch ever produced is stored so that it could be analysed in the future if required.
As you say, a dodgy batch, if there were such a thing would be quickly spotted in the dealer trade and reported.
