What two stroke oil do you use for your strimmer's, or chainsaws etc.. 2 stroke oil is a bit of a minefield these days, so many to choose from, some engines prefer certain oils, some will fail if the wrong oil is used.
Do you use one oil and mix for all your 2 strokes. So what oil would you recommend...
I've noticed a big turn in mowing trends over the last couple of years, this year especially. Seems loads of people are turning to battery powered cordless machines, and Zero turn ride on machines are also more popular than ever.
Do you think this is due to advances in technology, or marketing....
Noticed Honda has changed the wheel bearings on the IZY. They have gone from a pretty decent ball bearing arrangement (Front wheels on SP machines), (All wheels on Push machines) To a really crappy cheap plastic hollowed out bushing, and these things collapse if you breath on them.
I have to ask why, especially when you can get better wheel bearings as standard on some £100 machines.
You can see in the image below what happens, because they are hollowed out the middles break away, and then the wheel is running on two very thin plastic discs.
