  1. My 153 in my picture, went to chainsaw heaven many years ago now as couldnt get parts, shame was a real trooper in the big stuff
  2. as said before, 40cc plus
  3. viking/stihl. will pick up soaking wet grass no problem
  4. I would let it settle in and grow for a year before you cut it,
  5. This is getting more spooky by the hour lol. hope you get sorted
  6. No, owner user, although i did sack an employee a while back, 6 months later backpack blower, brushcutter and hedge cutter were all pinched .....
  7. Right, i have drained the aspen out of the blower, refilled with petrol and stihl 2 stroke oil ( i have used this for years with no problems ) i have tuned carb and is now running well Not blaming the aspen in any way, i was just curios as to weather i had a bad batch I will run a few tanks through and then go back to aspen to see what happens I will update soon
  8. thats what i have, stuff the aspen, im going back to regular 2 stroke, never had any problems in 30 years with pump fuel
  9. 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 ????
  10. I am going to put regular 2 stroke back in them tomorrow, see if it makes a difference
  11. New hedge cutters running fine , decided to run them on aspen and then all sorts of problems, cutting out etc, do they have to be re tuned to run on aspen ?? Cheers

    large cc saws

    I know that the old stihl 090 was 137cc, but why no modern saws that big, stihl 088/880 husky 3120 and dolmar 166 were all 120 ish cc, modern tech, the newer saws would eat the old 090, in terms of speed ( maybe not torque tho ) i suppose weight comes into it ? Just thinking like !
