Husqvarna combi cans finally here!!

Why didn't Husky make the dark spout for oil and the light for fuel. I liked the idea of being able to see how much fuel would be in the can, without having to peer inside. But I use Aspen and seeing how it's clear, the gauge turns out to be of no use. I dare say it's different with pump premix. No other problems yet, other than the handle being unnecessarily angular and hence uncomfortable to carry over long distance walk-ins/outs.

While I dont expect something that costs £30 and used every day to last a lifetime I do expect people to learn from their mistakes, and husky plainly didnt. The main problem with the old combi can was that petrol swells the auto spout rendering it useless. you would think that lesson would have been learned! Everyone in Sweden will use aspen so they wont have the problem!

 

I have complained about the above a long time ago but I havent received any feedback. Apart from the dodgy fuel spout there doesnt seem to be any other issues, crossed threads and dodgy tool holders are a new one on me.

 

TGB, you can swap the spouts over, the threads are the same.

If you buy Aspen 4 and mix it with Redline 2t oil you can see it :001_smile:

Just noticed that the oil spout has split at the top of the screw section do it leaks oil. I can only think the can swelled up on a hot day and split it. Shouldn't be a huge issue I'll swap to the non-auto fill spout but I really don't use mine much, it's spent most of its life in the back of the garage
