Thanks Mick & Barrie. Great advice Barrie, I can now fill up & fire up.

@ Mick, methinks that's exactly what's needed. And the notification toggle is now, er! toggled.

Stay safe

Hi Mick,

Thanks for your reply. I've just fired off an email to the supplier, lets hope they have a bit of knowledge & don't just sell 'em.

PS is there a box on this forum to tick for automatic notification? I don't see one.
Lawn mowers / Mountfield dipstick?

Hi all,

I nearly entitled this post as "How long is a piece of string" But the question is "How long is my dipstick"? My Hayter 41 has failed, which will be a winter project, so I've bought a shiny new red Mountfield NTL434-R. STIGA 120cc. Having finished off the assembly, I come to adding the oil, hmmm! The manual says, if the dipstick is long, screw it in, then remove to check the level, if it's short don't screw it in. Question, The stick is 69mm from the base of the thread to the tip. Do I have the long one or the short one? No further info in the manual, result? I daren't fire it up until I'm sure the oil level is correct.

I'm a great believer in forums, they're a great mine of information, any answer appreciated.

GSD Man.
