    Penny Pincher Alert: Cart Wheel/Tire

    Above pretty much my experience. Across the vast expanse of buyer testimonials it seemed HF reports were fairly honest, but recently HF has censored several of my reports of shoddy and stupid business practices. HF also refuses "longitudinal" (aka reliability ) reports. This is also...

    180 hrs. Forgot to mention the 249F oil temp in direct sun mowing medium tough 12" weeds for an hour. This engine is very quick to cool compared with my DYT 4000. For instance stopping blades drops oil 4 degrees almost immediately and shade also has an immediate effect, about 5 degrees...

    Another oil temp reading @ 180 hrs: ambient 100F, oil temp 249F. Installed the ebay VDD1 switch and locker is working again. The switch was likely damaged when rocker was ripped off by tree branch.. BTW Carling did respond, but not needed as ebay sw was on order.

    Husqvarna online schematics and the vendor parts lists have not been friendly. The dashboard locker switch does not have a Husq part number on it and pursuit has been tedious. Turns out the switch is a ":Carling" (CT) part, but without a full part number of 14 digits. Searching only the first...

    Stabil for Gasoline Storage?

    Stabil in whackers, dyt 4000, Husqy rider, and cars that sit too loo long. Never had a clog (I am dooming myself). Purposely use small capacity gas cans to force frequent turnover.. I have often seen advice to fill gas tanks to reduce air , but it always seems counter intuitive, but probably...

    Just to report on search for info on the diff lock system. The only thing found is a schematic with an "M" symbol linked back to the connector power (red/black) suggesting a "stepper motor" ?? So far have not got under to look. A stepper makes sense after reading many posts on locking diff...

    i have said it before....there is such deep and extensive knowledge in this forum it deserves better than to be piece mealed out in separate threads and comments, thereby missed by many needy people. A steering committee should be set up of people willing to serve who have demonstrated vast...

    Harbor Frieght pressure washer: impressions

    This place is covered in moss and algae after a really wet spring and I knew I finally had to get a pressure washer to recover the driveway, sidewalk and wood deck. One day of a local specialist looked like it was getting close to the cost of a lower end washer. On line there are some...

    DYT 4000 blade indexing grit/click under rotation by hand

    Craftsman 917.273621 running and cutting ok, but upon sharpening blades and rotating them underneath by hand an indexing "notch" is felt by hand. When the tension rod is released this notch feeling is gone. The deck is strung up now on a cherry picker and the unloaded pulleys and spindles feel...
