      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Snow Blower surges when Not under load

Recommended Posts

I have a 2007 Airens snow blower, bought and used it last year. At the end of last winter I added Sta-bil to the gas before I used it the last time. Now this winter I fired her up, and when operating under load it runs great, but when I dis-engage the blower it starts surging and backfiring. As soon as I engage the blower and hit some snow it settles down and runs good. I was thinking maybe it was bad gas, but I ran out the tank and added fresh premium gas, and it's still doing the same thing. It doesn't die, but surges and backfires when not under load. Any ideas appreciated!

If you purchased it from a place that also services them I would just call them.

If it ran fine last year and nobody messed with the carb settings I don't see how a carb adjustment is necessary.

The place I bought it from is now closed (as in bankrupt), but I called the guy I bought it from who works somewhere else now, and he said he had another guy with the same thing, and he thinks the carb needs to be cleaned. Seems to be a fuel issue, the carbs on Airens according to him are non-adjustable, so I'll have to try and pull the carb and see what can be cleaned.

I'd try new spark plug too. Some of those small engines kind of glaze the cylinder with improper spark. Had a chainsaw do that once. Never hurts to clean the carbs though. Also when you put the sta-bil in the gas did you run the machine so it got into the carb too? Did you fog the cylinders? That some times needs some time to burn that oil out and run clean again. Just some thoughts...

Just finished mine,the carb had no adjustment either!(I dont like those) but the governor adjustment did stop the surge.That should have not been the problem so I disassembled and did a complete carb cleaning. Running fine now.

I did all the summerizing required to mine and fired it last end of Oct.Ran fine then! Like I said I dont like the nonadjustable carbs!! Mines a new Troybuilt

Lots of blowers do this I have a Ariens 05 13hp it does it my dad has an older John Deere it does it. It is the govenor adj not a big deal if you adj it too much it will quit surging and just kill the engine. I just leave mine alone.

Ya mean you keep using it while it's surging?? That'd drive me crazy! I like my motors to run the way their designed to.

    • Buddie runs the blue bit gas Nills and Tanaka powerhead and he also told me they no longer make them. He bought another one off a guy just for a backup. Thinking maybe just the gas ones are gone  but possibly both, Interested to hear what Frank says. 
    • ajust in the controls of the radio????
    • Now I’m convinced. I made a shuttle for my Helix but I couldn’t get the settings right until yesterday. Love it with no interference with a Showdown right next to it. Still need to get the ice ducer for it. 
    • Thanks!  I went and spoke with the DMV, I was given a sheet for homemade trailers so I can itemize the parts.  Then I need to add up the values to pay sales tax on.  She said I can write "on-hand" for the parts so no receipt is needed. Just posting for reference.  
    • I believe the one I had was just a model #77 but in .22 cal.  It was a very nice rifle but a little heavy to carry squirrel hunting. It was not cheap either. My guess is I traded it for something else that caught my fancy. You know how that goes.
    • As I remember the round was developed by Col. Townsend Whelan.  It was well thought of at the time and could be loaded up to some serious heavy duty stuff,  big bullets etc.  It was favored in heavy cover since  it was thought of as a brush busting load. I am pretty sure it was available in at least one commercial rifle (Rem?) but it has long ago faded away as newer calibers etc. surpassed it. Am not sure the ammo was available commercially, but it would not take much of your time to  check it out. I'd start with the Col. and go from there.It had its strong supporters. The 35 Remington has a lot more going for it than the 30-30.
    • What kind of speakers and how are the speakers mounted? Sometimes they have to be in somewhat of a "box" to create the bass. 
    • sent him a note earlier
    •   I have a Nils and love it, would recommend it to anyone. Although I've never used the K-Drill, I've seen enough positive reviews to feel confident you really can't go wrong with either one. The only exception is if you're reopening holes a lot (especially if you have a permanent house). The K-Drill seems to be better for that. 
    • You need to go to the dmv and register it as a homemade trailer.
