Lawn mowers / Who's got one of the new Hayter Harrier's
« Last post by Mick on June 14, 2019, 04:55:47 PM »
Who's got one of the new hayter Harrier 48 Model 475A, 48 Pro 479A, Or 56: 575A, 56 Pro 579A? Just wondering what you think of them compared to the older models.  These are the ones with the BBC blade clutch.

Think the contractor will love them as they are so bloody fast compared to the older models.  In fact if I didn't know better I'd say they have made them a tad too fast for most users. That said they do already supply a kit to sow them down, but I haven't seen or fitted one yet.

Lawn mowers / Re: 2 stroke hover mower engine wire query

Hi Desmac, and welcome to TGMF.

Both those engines use the same method to stop the engine.  A terminal on the ignition coil, once grounded will kill the spark.

Method used to achieve this vary slightly with different machines / engine combo's, but the principle remains the same.   ;)

Lawn mowers / 2 stroke hover mower engine wire query
« Last post by Desmac on June 10, 2019, 09:44:05 AM »
I have two 2-stroke petrol hover mowers; a Flymo contractor L50 and an Allen something. both use identical Techmseh MV100S engines. The Flymo has a setting on the throttle lever which grounds a wire from the magneto to the engine block. This stops the engine.
The Allen has the cable grounded to the engine block to allow it to run (via a dead man switch). Can anybody through light on the purpose of the wire from the magneto which has seemingly opposite effects on seemingly identical engines?

Lawn mowers / Re: Efco versus Husqvarna

If it's not too late.
Not an efco fan myself, build quality is less than the Husqvarna, but Husqvarna are so slow to get parts out sometimes.

Fitted the "repair kit" to an MS201t, no difference in performance, advanced the timing and opened up the muffler and it was like a different saw.
No bogging down anymore and a happy customer.

Good to hear you've got it back and hopefully working properly.

Does amaze me they'll tell you there's no issue with the machine and put it down to operator error.  Then they come out with modified parts to fix a problem they say doesn't exist. I can tell you, thy wouldn't spend any money doing this if there wasn't a problem.

They obviously think we're all idiots. lol..  ;)

Hi next update
Collected the mower from repair and the chain case has been replaced with a reinforced one that has a steel plate under it for protection and even with the steel plate fitted it does not rub on the ground (but it’s still not a design flaw)when in the lowest setting. How can these company’s get away with this kind of thing ?

Hi I have a big issue with the company who import who are telling me that I have been running it over hard surfaces on the lowest height setting which will damage the chain casing , and is not a design fault
1 I have never used the lowest setting
2 how do you get a mower out the van onto the lawn without hard surfaces. Magic.
It all sounds so crazy I think they just won’t admit it’s a Lemmon.

I feel your frustration.

For them to tell you it's caused by running on hard surfaces on the lowest setting is complete bull. The chain cover shouldn't be anywhere near the surface.  If it is / was then that would be a design fault anyway.  I can understand this could be a problem if running along the edge of a concrete path etc, but not on a flat surface.
