  1. Just changed the stop bar switch as feeding in wasnt happening and its sorted 90%. However about 1 in 5 times the no stress comes on the forward rollers freeze and i have to press in the go switch again to get rollers to feed in again. Any ideas why this may be, maybe a loose connection somewhere?

    Echo 2511 woes?

    Is it possible to fit the newer black primer and the newer spark plug to the older ones, circa 2017?

    Echo 2511 woes?

    I bloody love the weight and the power especially after being ported but its always had an air filter that is very easily clogged and these recent ticking over issues really are making it a bit harder to like

    Echo 2511 woes?

    Not played with l or h screws, just had it back from spud month ago and it cuts great but just a bit shit on tickover but now it’s not even useable I’ve moved the tick over screw more than I can remember where it goes now!

    Echo 2511 woes?

    really having trouble setting the tickover on my 2511, it was increasingly cutting out whilst idling so thought id wind the T screw in a little but now it wont even tick over at all!!

    which rope with pulleysaver?

    I have a pulley saver but the spliced eye on my rope is a pita to push through the pulley saver. What rope do you prefer with spliced eye is nice and smooth and easy to pass through pulley saver?

    dont think it is the rollers as the squeaking is still happening when rollers are on stop

    nice one, will give this a go. Is there any other possible things the squeaking noise could be coming from apart from flywheel bearing?

    is it easy enough to take off the drive belts and put them back on at the same tension? Im not much of a mechanic but have learnt to change blades and service rest of the machine myself

    tw125 squealing

    My tw125 is 10 years old, but i have noticed in the last week a bit of a squealing noise coming on and off when using it. Its not had the flywheel bearings done and am thinking this could be making the noise? Is it about time after ten years to change them anyway or any ideas what the noise could be?

    Tw125 flywheel bearings

    Spectrum plant, my machine has started doing a squealing noise think it may be the flywheel bearings too...
