I have 2 echo hedge clipers and 3 weedaters. After taking that d$$n thing out on a 98 degree day on ny weedeater and twice on my long pole clippers I made that screen disappear! No more problems! I had to clean mine about every 4-6 weeks and it got old fast!
Every mechanic around here says "take it out but you did not hear it from me." In irrigated landscapes using Amsoil I do not see a danger, but some will stongly disagree and say"that is terrible advice", to which I say blah, blah, blah, blah,blah.
To those of you that remove your spark arresters: be careful trimming around propane tanks. They have pressure relief valves and periodically vent gas. One spark and the EMT's will be picking body parts up for days (and we'll all know you from the News coverage).
