    Well the Solo branded brushcutter I have here.. A friend purchased it brand new ... both he and the mob that sold it to him could never get ti to run right, so he sold it to me after he'd had a gutfull of it .... Now, I'm at the same point.. I've hada bloody gutfull.. I just chucked a new carby gasket in it ... it now runs ... but as always the mixture screws seem to do nothing... I reckon thre will be a casting flaw inside its carby somewhere.. and the aggravating POS just will not run right. I've decided I'll get rid of it.

    I asked my father does he have a decent brushcutter I can borrow for an hour and he said "Where the big one ... don't you have it ?" .... Id' forgotten about that thing. None of us ever used it as it was too bloody heavy. About 30years ago my father purchased it ... ex-council. It looked unused ( t would have been to bloody heavy for the council workers to want to use too).



    This is how big it is compared to a domestic cutter...It usually always starts ... I figured if I could chase up a carby kit for it ... I'd just use that... As it does always start and work well, not matter how any decades between use. Of course it wouldn't start (it would have to be 15years since it was last used).



    First thing I noticed is I won't need a carby kit .... Look at that... it's a CD carby ... the same as the carby that used to be on my old motorcross 2stroke bike. She has HUGE amounts of compression. So I just need to clean the honey like 2stroke oil that has dried out in the carbies needle and seat ... and I'm back in business.

    I needed to get fit right ?

    Solos are usually pretty good make sure there are no limiters on the mixture screws. What brand is that old clunker?

    Yes I know, Solo's are supposed to be good. THis one has been un-tunable from the day it was sold new. I reckon there will be a casting flaw in the carby .. or something crazy like that. The mixture screws do work. But no matter where you adjust them too it won't run properly (at the moment it seems to be leaning out when you run it at full revs ... and really isn't happy).

    The biggie ? I'll have to find a brand name on it. It certainly a big commercial quality unit with grease nipples etc on it. I don't think there is any spark, so I'll need to whip it down and dress the surface rust off the magneto no doubt.

    that big brushcutter has a Kaaz label (that might be the local store that sold it ?) It has made in japan cast into the motors body. So.... I have no idea!
