    How are you using your Sea Foam? Are you mixing it with your gas and oil or soaking the Carb and jets with it?

    were mixing it with gas , it took about 3 weeks of light use in our gas for me to start noticing how much better the whips were running

    i also saw a guy here mention dont gun it when just starting for first time that day in effort to warm it up quicker because the extra gas your gunning into carb doesnt burn and becomes carbon build up

    shindaiwa t242 or bigger ( i love mine.. but the 282t is the monster, t261 is great mix of the 242/282..) i use stihls fs80rx's four days and week , and have used the 90's and 100's , use my shinny three long days a week and i wonder why stihl even needs to exist.. shindaiwa's are superior to me.. power, weight, starting good with high hours, trimmer head, less vibration..only brands i even think about other than shinny is redmax ( 'cause i love my blower) echo ( mid-level commercial not on par with redmax/ shinny--but i do like echo a lot ) husqvarna ( decent)
