New Petrol Strimmer Smoking
My new "Trueshopping" 43CC Petrol Strimmer arrived today. Took an hour to assemble it all. Mixed the unleaded with the oil with the mixing container that come with the strimmer. I made sure the measurements were exact, primed the fuel through the line, flicked the choke, after about 5 pulls the engine started, I then flick the choke back to the off position. Barely a trace of smoke but it does make the odd little puff now and again.
Has a nice little purr to it, I've let it idle for 3 minutes before giving it it's first rev. I fully pressed the throttle down, it produces a cloud of greyish smoke. Quite a lot to grab my attention. Letting it idle is fine, it only does it when it's at full revs.
For oil I use "Semi-Synthetic" Ryobi RGA002 2 Stroke. I've used the exact 25:1 mix.
Engine is a generic Chinese copy but it's great! Best sounding machine I've used. Does the engine need to be run-in longer? Couldn't really test it at it's full potential due to the rain, only gave it a quick run test in the garage.
