    One year in the business.... so you see where I'm coming from. Most of my cheaper equipment runs on 40-1 mixture. I just purchased a commercial Kawasaki trimmer/edger that calls for 50-1. Can I run 40-1 in my new trimmer? It certainly won't lack for oil. Any unforeseen problems?

    you can run it on 40-1, except you might see more smoke coming out the back end and the exaust ports might clog up a little faster.
