    Anyone ever keep tabs on the hours they run on backpacks and trimmers etc.. ? I know I have a few blowers in my shed that are 20 years old and have been used daily for many many years from some large companies and passed down to me...I bet they have thousands of hours but no way of knowing. Any of you guys ever bought a 2-cycle tachometer?

    There was a thread on this subject very recently. I track the amount of oil/gas mix that I go through each season. I have previously found how much running time that I can get from a gallon of mix. Good thing to know for all of the preventative maintenance items.
