Am I not allowed to think of this engine as my baby?
Of course not literally, currently my 2 cats «Zuki» and «Nice» and my aquarium of fish with all live plants are my babies.
This 2-Stroke Stihl Kombi engine unit KM85R is just a great engine that I need to use for work for a few years and service it myself to keep it starting and running well. Needed a lot of work at first to repair it and I enjoy repairing tools.
I have bought this Stihl Kombi engine unit, used to save money, in need of repair and servicing around 2017. I use it mostly with my (line trimmer) strimmer/ brush cutter attachment. It was in quite a bad condition but repairable and with potential for a lot of power and reliability for a very small and lightweight engine at specified output of 0,95/1,3 kW/bhp. I cleaned the carburetor on outside and inside, changed the various filters at air intake and at fuel tank, gaskets, spark plug, centrifugal clutch, exhaust muffler and adjusting fuel mixture screws on carburetor. It starts and works lovely, lots of power for a light engine. Great German engineering!
It is 2-Stroke, standard ratio of fuel mixed with 2-Stroke oil 50:1 Nowadays there are high power battery powered Lithium-Ion strimmers that are more environmentally friendly. I am saving up for one.
I service and repair garden machinery and other tools for customers as well, as part of my small business GIO Landscapes, where I do mostly landscaping and garden maintenance and repairing fences and patios too. It’s nice to restore a tool to it’s original performance, not always possible. As I needed to also repair my mobile from when it got soaked in the rain and mum’s laptop that stopped working and other electronics, I am starting to do electronics repairs for customers as well.
