Stump The Technician...Name That Failure,,,

Having 2 teenage daughters, I say the push mower will be the first to go. Unless Dad is in charge of maintenance.

Bravo, PistonSlapper is correct.

Novice chainsaw and scooter owners are a deadly combo. While many 2-strokes remain in the motorcycle world, premix and carburetors are all but gone, replaced by injection pumps with separate tanks.

The bike/scooter has two tanks, a large one for gas and a small one for oil. A chainsaw has two tanks .... and the result is obvious.

I know a lot of people who had their saws burnt by scooter riding teenagers, to them it made perfect sense, the saw will mix it's own fuel, like any other 2-stroke they know of, right?
