Hello. Please help. I bought a STIGA SBC 252 D brush cutter, today I did the first mowing, and in fact 1/6 of it .. The scythe works very well, fires well "hot", but when I turned off the engine for 20 minutes, I had to wave a lot to start again .. After the second off, there is no way to fire it after a second break. I wave and wave and nothing ... follows the instructions 10 x suck, choke lever, pull, lever to work and pull to light. I'm really pissed off, I didn't start mowing well and something's not working anymore .. work is standing still! I had a flat 40: 1, I poured 160 ml of oil into 5 liters of gasoline, so the proportions were rather appropriate. Was it the candle that flooded? I unscrewed the candle, blown it, pulled the rope and screwed it back in. I noticed that the casing is slightly melted by the candle. I am asking for help, I had at least 1/4 planned today and I didn't even cut half of what I had planned.
It has a rich mixture, but the fuel is dry as pepper.
I rubbed it, I am constantly wondering if I made the right mix .. Since you suggest a good, defacto in the ratio of 40: 1 comes out 40 ml per 1 l, I was wrong and poured about 180 ml for 5 l instead of 200 .. and now it worries me terribly . Remove the record from the manual.
The mixture was made by a colleague 1:32, but it's not a problem yet, it should work and smoke more. Tell me why the hell are you pumping fuel again after a 20 minute break and re-choke. The scythe after such attempts is 100% flooded. In such a situation, you twist the candle, turn the machine upside down and, pulling with a jerk (as when starting), "spit out" all the fuel from the cylinder. You screw the candle in and after such a procedure it has to light up.
Rather, there is no fear. What mixture is recommended in the manual? In that case, it can only smoke more. Well, unless the manufacturer recommends a 20: 1 mixture (100 ml of oil to 2 liters of gasoline) so with the hard work of a new, unbroken machine, anything can be done with such a mixture.
