    While this might not be the most "Landscape" oriented piece of machinery the mechanics are still the same so figured I'd get your guys opinions on the matter. So I acquired a late 70's early 80's Lincoln Stick welder/generator that had been sitting for YEARS. It has a 2 cylinder Onan motor as...

    Do you recommend adding methyl hydrate to my lawn equipment? I am aware you don't add it to the weedeaters or blowers. How much methyl hydrate should I add to my ferris gas tank(5 gallons)?

    Hey everyone! Does anyone know what the Kawasaki engine fuel consumption is? I'm trying to calculate my fuel consumption per hour on my mower engines. Right now, I'm working on the FX600V. I've tried to find info on Kawasaki's website but was unsuccessful. Any info, opinions or suggestions...

    I picked up a low hours 757 recently and was very happy until about 90min into mowing the first time, it stalled on me. I thought it was overheating so I let it cool off for about 30min, started it back up and finished the yard. I was very disappointed and thought maybe I got suckered into a...

    Hi all, new member first post. Does anyone run 100 octane/ aviation fuel in an echo 770? After having carb issues with one of my echo 770 (after one year of use) the service tech stressed the importance of ethanol free fuel. I have owned boats for 25 years and know all too well the problems...

    Hello all, I’ve got an older Toro Groundsmaster 325-D. It has a Mitsubishi K3 engine. It’s always been a hard starting machine, since I’ve owned it. I had my Dad mowing with it the other day and he thought he ran out of fuel. He filled it back up (with diesel) and got it started and...

    Was wondering if anyone uses non-ethanol in their engines? I know this has been beat to death probably but a gas station a few miles down the road offers non ethanol gas. I have a kawasaki fx691v and want to make sure it lasts. Any thoughts?

    Is there a pretty considerable difference in fuel consumption between these two horsepower engines?
  13. Mechanic and Repair
    I should have known better. I listened to people who said that the kawasaki was a good engine choice in modern lawn equipment. I purchased this mower for use at my home just two years ago, the engine has only 50 hours on it, and I've run into a serious issue. Last time I used the mower, no...

    Having trouble starting if mower sits for 2 days. The mower is a scag. i was thinking the manual fuel pump might have a bad diaphragm but the dealer can not find out what pump is on it. If anyone can help it would make life a lot easier for the dealer and myself. Maybe someone has had the same...

    Hey Y'all- I was at an industry expo today and wandered over to talk to the propane guys. They told me they will do the following FREE if I buy 500 or more gal from them a year: 1. Will convert all my mowers and other 4 stroke equipment (my mini-skid) at no cost to me (and will convert back...

    I have the Honda GXV620 engine on a Hustler Fastrak mower. The fuel filter lives behind the air filter on that engine, and after taking off the air filter housing and filter, there are two bolts at the top of the plastic casing which need to be removed before the casing can be removed to show...

    So I was mowing yesterday when all of the sudden I lost about half power!! I mess with the throttle cable, no issues. I tried the simple things first, changed the plugs, checked for spark on both plugs (got it), replaced the fuel filter, clean the air filter. So as goofy as this sounds, I...

    I have been searching for new gas cans like the old blitz ones but I can't seem to find them anywhere. Now all I can find are ones that have the "safety" where you have to push it down in order to get gas out. Does anyone know where I can find the old cans where you can just pop the top off and...
