Question about Makita DPC8112 16" 81CC Gas Powered Power Cutter Circular Saw

1 Answer

Blown engine I have ten saws i rent out, and have had four motors blow in the past month. the saws are getting old, but are well maintained. When I rent them out, i send them with a can of premixed fuel, so the customer does not put regular gas in the machine. The premix is 50:1 using 2 cycle engine oil from Stens. My question is, Is there a better oil to be mixing with these older saws? Or is there anything else that could be scaring the piston and cylinder, and blowing the motors? (compression is @ 75psi)

Makita likes you to use at least 91 octane fuel and a synthetic oil mixture. the stens oils is garbage, i switched to the makita oil around 6 months ago and i havent had a problem. also, the wacker saws use the same motor and their piston heads are sleeved in carbon so they last longer and dont score the cylinder as fast as the stock makita heads.

makita also makes a 100:1 mix hi performance oil you can use.

Is a landlord aloud to use current month rent to pay past due rent without letting me know and give me a 3 day eve notice for not paying current month rent????? please HELP!!!


Renting property is different from state to state, but a 3 day eviction notice is way below the minimum days allowed. My advice would be to look at your state's renting eviction policies to get full information about how to go about this.

What best to maintain a Greatwall Wingle engine and performance?


check for any oil leaks at gaskets and check exhaust for blue smoke.IT may be a failing turbo. The great wall car is china made and fortunately the engines are off the shelf units from other motor companies such as Mitsubishi. You may have to enquire as to how you would get warranty. if the dealer closed up. Ask on line from the importer of the car or from the manufacturer them selves. I would be checking for oil inside the turbo shells as to exhaust seal or inlet seal as the turbo would be the obvious failure if it is shut down to soon. If you can establish the maker of the engine then spares will be available from a dealer service spares that sells that engine

The saw will die down then blown the overload putton or the Breaker.Doing this since i bought it.They put two new moters in it,I can ever get thorght 4 feet of pine with no knots, Delta gave up.Or that...


if it were me i would contact Delta directly by email or phone. give them documentation of everything that was done and what the tech said.
i am wondering if you dont have bearing problems in the arbor. or maybe the arbor its self is defective. if you could remove the belt from the motor and start it up. see how long it runs and how it sounds. also with it off and the belt off, move the blade. it should roll very easy.
one other thing is, with the belt on the motor , the motor should just hang there and be movable.
the weight of the motor its self is suppose to be enough to put the proper tension on the belt. dont pull the motor tight on the belt and lock it down. reply back with your results

Start capacitor keeps blowing. saw starts up


SOUNDS LIKE THE CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH IS NOT WORKING.
THE MOTOR IS STARTING ON THE START WINDING AND NOT SWITCHING TO THE RUN WINDING. THAT IS THE REASON IT IS RUNNING SLOW.

Replaced Motor Control, motor and Main Control board, but still won't work


The only other thing that could cause the ON light to turn off as soon as the motor is about to start would be a bad or loose connection that causes a break in the circuit. Even if the components are O.K. the connection could still be causing the problem.
