32:1 is the best mixture to use. 50:1 is what's recommended by most manufacturers for home owners grade small 2 stroke engines but 32:1 with a quality oil and premium fuel with fuel stabilizer will more than likely double the life expectancy of your power equipmen

McCulloch chainsaw 338 wont start

Unfortunatly this machine appears to have seized on the piston, there is no other answer but to pull it apart and see how much damage has occured, it may well be beyond economic repair, as it will probably require a cylinder and piston.

Given 1hp motor how to compute the exact amount of amphere use in circuit breaker

You're not going to be able to do this with just a known Horse Power.

There are 3 elements to the equation, with any two, you can work out the third.

If you want to know how the amperage, you will need to know the voltage and wattage of the motor. I imagine that you already know the voltage (It's going to be 220V or 110 volt)

Watts divided by volts = Amps


A 220v 1000 watt motor (1000 divided by 220) will draw 4.55 amps
A 110v 800 watt motor (800 divided by 110) will draw 7.27 amps

Bear in mind that most washing machines have a couple of windings for wash and spin. As an average, the was winding will usually be about 500 watts to spin and about 250 watts to wash. ALSO, bear in mind that if you are using this data for a WASHING MACHINE, then there is a water heating element in there too and that draws about 2Kw (2000 watts)

Dont just take this as read, you DO need to check wattages, but, working on what I have just said, the max consumption on a 220V machine will look like this:

At Spin, with a 500 Watt consumption: (500/220) = 2.3 amps
While Washing with a 250 watt consumption: (250/220) = 1.14 amps

Consider that the WASH and HEAT may be running at the same time.
2Kw heating (2000/220) = 9.1 amps PLUS 1.14 amps for the motor - Total wattage 10.24 amps

Watts / Volts = Amps
Amps x Volts = Watts
Watts divided by amps = Volts

Need to know fuel mix for mcCulloch gladiator 550 petrol hedge trimmer

I don't know the age of this machine, but more and more of the newer units are using a 50:1 mix to satisfy the newest EPA emissions regulations. I suggest using a synthetic or synthetic blend of 2 stroke oil. ....the big box stores sell the oil...Echo one of the best. I would use synthetic and mix it 40:1. Here is a fuel mix chart to show you how many ounces of oil in a gallon of gas that is. If you make a 1/2 gallon batch of fuel mix, just use half of the listed oil amount for the mix.

40:1 is 3.2 ounces of oil in a gallon of gas...or 1.6 ounces of oil in a half-gallon of gas

The brackets that attach to the driver's window on my son's 2003 Grand Am have broken due to forcing a frozen window. The window is no longer attached to the slide mechanisms. I am wondering...

  3. Remove the adhesive with a one edge razor blade.
  4. Clean the glass with Isopropyl alcohol.
  5. Important: Install adhesive into the applicator and squeeze some adhesive out before you install the mixing tube. After the mixing tube is installed, run a test bead the length of the mixing tube to ensure a good mix.
  6. Fill the sash channel clip with adhesive.
  7. Install the clip in the marked location.
  8. Reinstall the door glass and put the glass in the full up position for 24 hours.

Cut off the bottom edge of the guide with a cut off wheel. (Refer to the illustration above.)

Using a thin flat blade putty knife and a hammer, carefully remove the plastic piece on each side of the glass. (Refer to the illustration above).

  • Clean any adhesive from the glass using a one-edge razor blade. (Refer to the illustration above).

    I would like to know the exact ratio of oil and gas of my homelite 720 generator,i lost the manual and i have to be more specific in fuelling it.what does it mean by 50 is to 1? thank you

    Find the manual here b> Mixing the fuel The Generator is powered by a two-stroke, air-cooled engineand requires a fuel mixture of gasoline and 2-cycle fuel lubricant. NOTE: Always mix two-cycle engine lubricant likeHomelite's Exact Mix Semi Synthetic Lubricant with gasoline before fueling theunit. Running the Generator ongasoline alone will ruin the engine. NOTE: Recommend you use ONLY Homelite or G-oil® inyour product.( Or any 2 cycle motor oil in this is not available) Use a mixture of 50 parts unleaded regular gasoline and 1part two-stroke engine lubricant (50:1). Use branded 87 octane (R+M+2) unleadedgasoline or gasohol (maximum 10% ethyl alcohol, or 15% MTBE, no methylalcohol.)
    NOTE: Always mix lubricant and gas in the properproportions: 2.6 ounces of lubricant to one gallon of unleaded gaso­line. To mix the lubricant and fuel together for use: 1. Pour 1/2 gallon of gasoline into a clean gas canor other container approved for fuel storage. Do not mix the fuel and lubricantdirectly in the Generato's fuel tank. 2. Add 2.6 ounces of two-cycle engine lubricant tothe gasoline mixture. 3. Add the remaining 1/2 gallon of gasoline. 4. Close the container holding the gas/lubricantmix and swirl the can to blend contents together. NOTE: Do not mix more than you will use in a month,and shake the container to blend thoroughly before each use. Using an old fuelmixture can cause starting difficulty or damage. DO NOT USE E85 FUEL. IT WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY. NOTE: Fuel system damage or performance problems resultingfrom the use of an oxygenated fuel containing more than the percentages ofoxygenates stated previously are not covered under warranty. Ethanol. Gasoline containing up to 10% ethanol by volume(commonly referred to as E10) or 15% ethanol by volume (commonly referred to asE15) are acceptable. E85 is not. Whenadding fuel to the Generator, make sure the unit is sitting on level ground andthat the engine is not hot. Fuelonly with recommended 50:1 mixture of gasoline and lubricant as described in Mixingthe Fuel. Toadd fuel to the Generator: 1. Cleanarea around fuel tank cap, if necessary. 2. Removethe fuel tank cap. 3. Inserta clean funnel into the fuel tank. 4. Slowlypour gasoline/lubricant mixture into fuel tank. NOTE: Filltank no higher than 1/2 in. from top to allow for gasoline expansion. 1. Reinstallfuel cap. 2. Clean up any spills. J

    Were do you pot the oil in **** cuter

    Hello. I would be happy to answer your question. The DPC7311 uses a glorifieds chainsaw engin and takes mixed fuel - I believe the manual says to mix the fuel:gas at 100:1, but that is with a specified Makita high performance oil. Most people mix it 50:1 and use normal two-stroke oil (actually it covers that in the manual also, I just found the info on page 12). The oil itself comes with the measuring cup (or marks on the side of a transparrent window), and has specific measurements listed on the container.

    For your reference, I've included the links to the manual and the parts breakdown, both on this page. Hope this answer is what you need. Thanks.
