ahh so no more BLIGGS and STLATON glashopper

Just spotted your post about power loss my apologies had a similar situation with a mower what used to happen when you stop to empty the grass box the carb seems to vapour lock the revs then drop you can hear the lack of revs
proved it with mine by cooling the carb with a washing up bottle full of water spray the carb it picks up again
sorry the info is late you could have blown it up earlier :lol: :lol: :lol:
my comments may be wrong but never deliberately
If it aint broke, dont fix it

Thai Fly getting pulled around by that Honda for five hours should keep you in great shape. Seems like a waste of that HEINKENS though. Such is life.

Mr Fly now that several months have passed how is that super Honda mower working for you? Is it still cutting the grass and operating good?

I have tried in vain to find a local retailer for this mower here in the Rayong area. No luck so far but here in Ban Chang not many folks buy this high a priced machine. I can find the simple Honda powered off bran push mowers but they look poorly constructed.

Where in CM did you purchase the one you have?

Good evening. I would suggest you look into buying a Huskvarna which is not a copy but a very well built machine. I bought one and have no regrets after i now since Nov. I is 6.5 hp and self propelled. The dealer lives in Chiang Rai but also sells and services Chiang Mai. His name is Ian Bannerman. If you are interested let me know and I will give you his number. Also I think the machine was about 4,000 B cheaper than Honda.His website is Husky North..check it out. http://www.huskymowersthailand.com/

My lawn is about 1.500 m2.
Bought a Husqvarna Automatic lawn mower, and must say, NEVER before in my life had as perfect lawn as this.
Its my little slave, works from 09 to 15, normally daily.
Only need to change the knives twice annually.
Has GPS, so when in Norway I can start and stop as i like and also see exactly where it is, all on my App.
It is expensive, but I dont need worry ( and also dont need argue With "Family" if lawn need to be cut or not, when in Norway, thats worth the extra baht :-) )
