How many strokes per minute?

Asked by yardguy March 15, 2018

Answers

The HC-152 has an average of 3,826 blade strokes per minute. This calculation is based on average Wide Open Throttle Speed (W.O.T.) for the HC-152 which is, 11,250 RPM (W.O.T. Speed ranges from 10,500-12,000 RPM). That number is divided by the Gear Case ratio of 5.88 and multiplied by 2 for the Double Reciprocating Blades.

Pull your chock tab, all the way out until you hear it start to start, then push the chock tab back in, half way. It will start. Push the chock in all the way and slowly rev it up. Keep the bar {cutting chain}} oil tank 3/4 filled as well. These tools are NEVER COLD, not even in the winter. That's another reason why I love them.

How do you sharpen the blades or are they replaceable?

Asked by Mike February 20, 2017
4
Answers

Many ECHO tools with blades are quite easy to sharpen, yourself. However this particular tool is quite different. If you are very mechanically incline and have a shop AND KNOW HOW TO SHARPEN blades it is no problem other than time consuming because there are so many blades. If you are NOT AN EXPERT at sharpening blades,... you can RUIN THEM RATHER QUICKLY. It's not like dragging a stone across a sword in the 16th Century. Take it to a "SMALL ENGINE REPAIR" Shop. They're in the directory.

I am very happy with this product. It starts when I want it to and It cuts better than any thing I've ever owned. Most of the things I usually buy I end up taking back, but this one is a keeper. It's worth the money I paid.

Bought a new one this morning. Even got the TruFuel for it. Out of the box it will not start. I switched to regular gas/oil mix and still no start. Checked the spark plug, connections, etc. Will have to return tomorrow. I have been working with small engines for 40+ years and this is just disappointing.
