Fine tuning
« on: Jan 11, 2017, 06:28 AM »
I have an Eskimo 33CC.  It is cutting well and always starting but doesn't seem to have a lot of power.  I used my buddy's same model and his worked better.  I have new premium gas in it and the correct mixture of oil.  Just wondering what else I can do to make it run better.  Thanks.
Get outside.  It does a body and mind good!

You could try some Sea Foam in your gas/oil mix as well as check/change the sparkplug and air filter?

They don't have air filters. New plug every season. RPM's may not run quite as high as his, every engine is different. No need for seafoam if you've run clean mix and drained gas at end of season and stored properly.  No need for premium; only for non-oxy. If it's drilling fine, runs good, your blades are razor sharp (which they should be) why worry about it?

Weird I could've sworn I saw an Eskimo tuneup kit for a 33cc Viper?
