re: Makita 4 stroke blower bogging - atom1505
I called my Stihl shop this morning and the guy told me I'm the second one this month calling with an issue about a Makita 4 stroke ha. Any regrets with the 56 instead of the 86? I will run the Stihl mix in it probably. The guy said if I do that, it doubles the warranty. ...

re: Makita 4 stroke blower bogging - atom1505
[quote]I thought... 4 stroke. Cool. No mixing. Of course, it's underpowered, weak and generally an all around not good blower. [/quote] Literally my thought process exactly. I could even deal with the underpowered part just because it's general residential stuff, and I don't have to mix gas. I'll...

re: Makita 4 stroke blower bogging - atom1505
I’ve run it without the gas cap and same deal. Could you explain the coil wiring in more detail? Can I change the timing?...

re: Makita 4 stroke blower bogging - atom1505
Fuel line, filter, and bulb were changed with the carb. I’ve also tried running it without the air filter to see if that was the issue. No dice. ...

Makita 4 stroke blower bogging - atom1505
I’ve got a Makita 4 stroke handheld blower that’s been bogging down really badly when I throttle it. I always run non-ethanol, but I figured maybe the carb had some junk in it so I ran some seafoam through it. That didn’t help any, so I replaced the carb. No help there either. I pulled the spark plu...

re: Soil or fill dirt for centipede grass - atom1505
I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I’ve used river silt numerous times for fill/level with no issues. I have encountered silt with weeds, but it was never anything that Weed Free Zone or 24d couldn’t take care of. River silt is nutrient rich and cheap. The common fear is torpedo grass, so ...

re: new flowerbed construction - atom1505
[quote]sand will eventually bind with the clay making a concrete like soil. Peat Moss, while cheap, has a lot of negatives such has enhancing pathogen formation.

re: new flowerbed construction - atom1505
Thanks for all the replies. I'll ditch the fabric. You guys think that even putting dwarf citrus trees next to the slab would cause a problem? If that's the case, I may just work it out to put them in the bed in some type of decent looking container. What about the gardenias?...

re: Patagonia products - atom1505
[quote]I hate the constant virtue signalling. These people have long had the reputation as an outdoor company that cares about the environment. This whole announcement was completely unnecessary other than to give themselves pats on the back on social media. [/quote] What would you have had them...

re: Patagonia products - atom1505
I agree that a lot of this announcement/release/whatever was totally unnecessary. I don't see the purpose and I don't see what benefit Patagonia gains from this from a business perspective. That said, it doesn't even come close to bothering me enough to affect my decisions re: buying their high qual...

re: new flowerbed construction - atom1505
I definitely see your point there, but my soil is awful. It's exactly as you said - crap compacted builder-grade clay. It's difficult for the damn grass to grow. It seems like a much cheaper and less labor intensive option to just add bulk soil on top after cutting the sod. I can definitely do wi...

new flowerbed construction - atom1505
I'm about to put two new flowerbeds in my back yard. I paid a guy to put one in my front yard and he didn't really do a good job, and I felt like I overpaid for what I got. Based on what I've read, I could probably save half the cost otherwise in doing it myself. I have several questions for any...
