    It has been a month now and I'm very happy with the switch. What I have noticed: no smoke, no smell, starts good, runs good, no oily residue at the exhaust mixed at 80:1. That's my summary so far, it's not that expensive since you mix it 80:1 instead of the traditional 50:1 Just passing it on what little I know at this point.

    I switched to Amsoil also. My Echo HC151 take it very well. The Stupid Shindaiwa C4 blower idle drop a little. Smell the best compare to others and I like the cobalt blue color!!!! I am doing 64:1.


    Hey Mr. Amsoil, don't be too smug!!!!!:laughing::laughing:

    I'm glad you like the results. It was the oily exhaust and plugged up ports that drove me to try Amsoil in the first place. I haven't looked back or regreted it.

    The redmax recommendations for their hand helds are 50:1.

    Are you sure it won't damage the machine if you run it over recommendation at 80:1?

    I would sure like to try it if not. I've had many problems with clogged exhaust ports in the past. Do you know if they have free samples?

    Myself and many others have been running Amsoil in all kinds of 2 stroke equipment at 80:1 for years. See this thread...
