High / Low Fuel Mixtures..

you run 100-1 oil mix !!  wow...  lean AF ..  I'm surprised you haven't you haven't made a pool of molten steel..   I'm also very impressed

Ive tried my best, "make a pool of molten steel"

 

My 7 year old HRU216M2 , I new it was extra fast through the 3 months of spring I was running behind it in 3rd gear, i was extra busy so left it  cutting alot of grass quickly and saved days mowing,

 

Checked the rpm after christmas the screw came out for thottle stopper it was running at 4000rpm for 3 months  it  survived so ive back the revs back to 3700 for a 9 month rest.

 

I also run the 100-1 Opti-2 through my 4 stoke gear aswell.  Without the oil in the fuel it would have worn out years ago, its worked hard, haven't done a thing to the motor. 

 

The big players stihl etc wont go to 100-1 even if its better, because there is to much money in oil, why would anyone want to half there sales in oil if they didnt have to.  thats the bread and butter for the dealers.

2 stroke…

When you first hook up, fast fun & reliable and a lot of noise

as the relationship goes by it is always there if you do the right thing

and society hates you but you love each other

 

4 stroke…

The one you marry

Higher maintenance 

The one that lets you down if you forget anything

whines and whinges as if everything is something you did

and hates your guts if you look at or carry a spare

 

DC Brushless…

teenagers (tread carefully)

they look attractive at a glance but it will be a long time before they grow up

all plastic, fantastic but who repairs them

grownups are more fun in the long term

 

…ssshh keep it quiet, if the neighbours can't hear you and you don't have signs on your transport

 

you may be able get away with under performing until the world catches on
