Husky 450 18' 50.2 cc 3.2hp

bonvi(7)May 1, 2010

I purchased a new 450 "Husky" after much research.What is the best gas ratio for this saw 50:1,30:1? Secondly who is the smog device removed.I know it can void the warranty.Finally, any suggestion for getting longgevity from this saw,I will use it for firewood mostly.

Use a quality 2 stroke oil such as Husqvarna's mixed at 50:1. Richer does not mean better, in fact it can do more harm than good. The engine will run poorly because the unburned oil will coke up the cylinder, piston and the catalytic converter in the muffler. The engine will actually get less fuel.
Leave the catalytic converter alone.
