Husky 51

Recommended Posts

I've just earned a Husky 51 for a couple of hours work and some ratchet straps.

Will 50:1 fuel mix be ok ? I've got no idea how old the machine is.

Is there anything else I should know about the saw ? eg. ideal bar length, typical weaknesses, similar models with common parts, etc.

Many thanks, Angus .:001_smile:

Hello mate, I think the 51's were made between 1991 and 2001, Its 51cc, Made more for a home owner/landscaper i think, Rather than a pro saw, Altough ive never used one, I think it would be alright for snedding up and using on small stuff.

 

Cant knock it if you got it for a couple of hours work :thumbup::thumbup:

Josh, thanks for the link. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work for my computer.

Perhaps some one else could try it too or tell me if I need a particular program to view the link.

Cheers, Angus .

50:1 will be fine (make sure its proper 50:1 rated oil. The stuff for outboard boat engines or lawnmowers ain't no good) :-)

Its a standard HTML page with Javascript. Maybe run your updates. Apart from that its a fairly bog standard site.

 

As a standard text page, if you have problems, we could e-mail you the contents.

It's orange all over. What do the different colours denote ?

Whilst cleaning it I found the date stamps in the plastic parts - December '95 , So I guess it could have been first bought in early '96.

Thanks for the confirmation of fuel mix ratio, 50:1 was what I was hoping for.:thumbup:
