As happy as I am with the saws I don't think I'll buy another trimmer from them.
I gave up running Ethanol in all of my small motors. I got tired of having to clean carburetors and burnt out plugs. They would spit and sputter.
I started going to a local Marina and buying non-ethanol gas. It cost more per gallon, but the equipment started running like it was supposed to run. I no longer have to tinker just to get something running.
Now, several of the gas stations have non-ethanol gas. I pay the extra for it when I fill my truck. I have much better MPG, the engine runs smoother, and it has better pick-up and response.
I can tell you horror stories of people ruining their two stroke outboards on Ethanol. Thousands of dollars later they learned their lessons.
Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
