    I finally got a Fastrak this past weekend. It is the 20/52. The only problem I have is that it backfires when I shut it down. I mow about 2.5 acres and it has cut my mowing time in half. I look forward to mowing now.

    My 20/52 Fastrak and my friends 24/60 Super Z backfire also. It is a little unburned fuel in the muffler. Just let it idle for 30 - 60 seconds before you shut it off and your problem will be solved.

    I have found that turning off the mower with the throttle 1/2 of the way up or higher that it does not back fire nearly as often. I have the same machine as you (20/52).

    I let it idle for a little while and it still backfired. I will try the half throttle this weekend when I get to mow again.

    My 20/52 had about 10 hours on it now, which represents about 10 mowings. It has never backfired at all.
