Impressed

I have had this mower for a couple of months and I am using it around farm sheds. Fairly rough ground initially weeds up to 600mm high. The Chonda motor always starts easily. The manual says not to use it on grass which is wet or higher than 150mm but I had no choice. On its highest setting and full power it managed OK by taking 12 width cuts. And occasional restarts when it stalled in really thick stuff. Next time 3 weeks later when the grass was only about 150 high it breezed through. The self propelled wheels coped with steepish slopes and reasonably thick grass and only occasionally did it need a bit of pushing help from me.The controls are well laid out and easy to understand and use. You have to fill the engine oil not supplied before starting. The build quality is fine. Plastic wheel caps come off if knocked but they seem cosmetic only.Time will tell if it lasts but my impression is that it is as good as any locally made mowers I have used in the past and I love the self propelled feature.

Good product overall

This is the second Dual Power chainsaw I039ve bought and I got this one to replace my stolen 084. I was surprised to find that the power of this one is basically the same if not more than the old 084.As with all of these machines that have a lot of vibration I would recommend people to put thread lock on the bolts and I lost the one from the handle within the first week easily replaceable though.I didn039t like the way the oil tank cap seals. You have to screw it right down until it039s flush with the orange covers. I thought it was down tight until it hit against a branch and poured the oil out everywhere. I haven039t had any problems with it since but it039s probably the only weak point on the whole machine.The other thing I advise is to be careful using ethanol-containing fuels in these chainsaws and possibly other Dual Power equipment. The fuel line in my first Dual Power chainsaw wasn039t designed for how much of a solvent the ethanol is and it disolved away within a couple of weeks. You can buy fuel lines that suit ethanol fuel from most auto stores but I039ve just been running premium fuels in all my Dual Power equipment now and haven039t had any problems.Like with the other Dual Power gear you can039t beat the price. I figured that ten of these costs the same as one similar sized chainsaw from the main chainsaw brand that everyone knows but I039m sure ten of these will out-last one of the other.Overall this is a good chainsaw for its price. Plain and simple.

Great little genny

I must admit I was a little skeptical that this Chinese generator would be any good because it was so cheap compared to established Japanese products.But it has proved very reliable easy to start and so far trouble free. Im using it every night to power battery chargers for my solar system batteries so it runs for 7 - 8 hours on a tank of fuel.It is early days because I have only had it just over a month but in that time it has performed perfectly.Ill be interested how it goes over the next year while I build a more sustainable solar system which will not need supplementary power.Heres hoping it will go the distance

Powerful Performer

This is a powerful lawn mower. It is best suited to large expanses of lawn. The self propelled function works a treat and will help you get the job done fast. This pull start machine starts easily and reliably no priming required the picture used in the advertisement shows a primer.Now for some of the cautionary assessments1. The machine arrives in a very basic packaging and while the box did not look stressed the accelerator cable sheath was stripped from its retainer. I shouldwould have sent it back except that I figured it was just too much trouble and being handy I decided to crimp it back on. Hopefully I will not regret not just sending it back from the start2. While this powerful machine is well suited to large simple expanses of lawn. If you require fiddly work eg. around trees or short runs like 5m X 5m tight turns. Then this is not your machine. It is heavy when not self propelled. When self propelled the slowest speed already has you on a brisk walking pace too fast.3. The bull bar in the front is pressed against the front of of the deckunlike the advertised picture but the trouble start on the underside. On the lower 2 hieght settings it would scrap running across concrete. I may do some extensive work to rebend this bar and correct the design flaw and regain access to the lower settings. Not sure if this was an indication of shipping damage as it was evenly buckled down on the underside. Note also one of the two screws here was not properly done up.4. While on the underside the enamaling paints used is thick and great except application has it missing bits on the odd or difficult spot to get to. Time will tell if rust will get a hold on the steel decking due to this.5. If the handle bars being long were of a thicker gauge the machine would feel more robust and secure in turns.Now I039ve had the lawnmower for one week and my overall impression is positive. Remembering that this machine is better suited to large lawned areas.

6.5HP 4000RPM 2.8KVA Power

Had it for nearly a year now. Has always started first time or after a couple of pulls after standing for some time.Fairly quiet and have put some serious load on it and the engine handled it well ie 2 hp direct drive compressor.Engine looks like a Honda copy and I worried it might not be up to scratch being chinese built but this has not been the case.12v charging works too but makes a whining noise that is quite irritating but thats not why you buy a generator its just 12v backup.

Bargain

I have one of these married up to a positive displacement milk pump now used as a water pump on a remote property.Starts every time.Can039t fault it.Now have 5 Dual PowerDucar items from Crazy SalesLarge and medium genset Chainsaw petrol pump and the stationary engine - can039t fault them.Good stuff guys

excellent value

I bought my first one five years ago we live in the country with an open wood fire as our only heat source we would average a uteload of cut up wood a week. My first one has never missed a beat and everyone that has tried it has since bought one. The old girl was getting a bit tired so I have just bought a new one and retired the old girl for parts. Highly rated and excellent value for money

Good value for the price

Easy to assemble quality is average but the value for money is excellent. Wouldn039t recommend for the serious mechanic but for the hobby types is OK.Mum loves it

disalusioned

unless you are a boilermaker welder putting it togetheramp ampusing the correct settings is all trialamperror as the instruction manual is not worth the paper it is written oni cannot comment on how good the machine works as i am still trying to find a working manual or somewon who knows how to work it..dissapointedthanking you peter atkinsps never give up

Not too bad

Righto.This is an inexpensive belt and disc sander so it039s not going to have the same quality and built as a more expensive belt and disc sander. That is to be expected. The question is is it good enough for what you039re spending on itAcknowledging that this contraption isn039t too bad all told. It does as it039s supposed to do and does a pretty good job of it.I bought this item for my hobbyist woodworking activities--mostly neatening up my awkward-looking hand-tool joinery and cleaning up a few edges here and there. For my purposes this thing does the job well enough for me to be happy with it and I039d recommend it to other hobbyists or home workshops that require occasional machine sanding.The following are the 039issues039 side of things. I suppose the major one would be that in order to change or replace belts you need to take off the entire guard fence and dust extractor covers to get at it. If you need to change grits frequently I don039t so I don039t care this will probably annoy you after you039ve swapped grits the fiftieth time in a day.Secondly the belt is a bit of a rare size and you might have to hunt around a little bit to find spares there039s plenty online that I039ve found no worries but your local hardware might have a bit of trouble.Thirdly the dust extractor points hey at least they have them right Some don039t and they fill your shop up with dust and madness are two different sizes which is a bit awkward. I suppose I might have to get a bit creative with some silicon and gaff or something.I had to knock a few of the mounting tongues true with a hammer no big deal.The angle-indicator pointer thingy on the stock shelf is hilarious. A bit of snipped sheet metal screwed on crookedly. It039s one of those 039why bother039 situations. You039ll have to calibrate that yourself or check your angles with a square. Get a Niko pen onto the job and just mark the gauge that039ll fix it no worries.The shelf sled with the angler on it feels a bit flimsy but it works so that039s no worries.That039s about it though it039s really not that bad. I think it039s pretty decent in fact. As I said above if you039re looking for something to tidy up your edges or joinery and you don039t need to change grits every five minutes then this contraption ought to meet your needs. It039s got a bit of weight to it so even with the rubber feet included it039s quite sturdy for bench-top use. You can also mount it with your own hardware--it039s pre-drilled if you so desire.Overall I039m happy with it and I am glad that I got this one instead of lashing out on a more expensive one because this one works exactly as I need it to. Hope this review helps you mob. Cheers.
