Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Is there an extension shaft available for the auger drills?

A. No, the length of auger has been designed with the engine power in mind. Extending the auger length would require a much larger engine.

Q. Hi can this be used on a hardcore base or soil only?

A. This is more suited to soil but will cope with the occasional stone or rock.

Q. Do I need to oil the gearbox?

A. Yes, you do. Check oil level of the gear box every 50 hours of use and change with new oil as necessary. Recommended change intervals are 1st change after 50 hours of use, and 2nd and on every 100 hours of use thereafter.

Q. How easy is it to start?

A. The 50.8cc engine has a soft recoil start function that makes it very easy to pull start.

Q. How much power does the engine produce?

A. The new 50.8cc engine produces 1800w of power with increased mid range torque.

Q. How long will it run on a full tank of fuel/oil mix?

A. The new 50.8cc engine found on the HYEA5080 will run for an hour on 800ml of fuel.

Q. I see the auger is supplied with 3 drills. Can you please confirm the diameter and length of each drill please?

A. Each drill is 800mm in length, and they have diameters of 100mm, 150mm and 200mm respectively.

Q. What is the recommended fuel/oil ratio?

A. For the first time ONLY, a mixing ratio of 25:1 should be used to lubricate all engine parts to an optimum level. Thereafter the mix is 40:1. Be sure to only use fresh unleaded fuel and 2-stroke engine oil mixture

Q. You mention that this machine is EURO 2 compliant. What does this mean?

A. EURO 2 is the current standard for garden machinery engine exhaust emissions, and all garden machinery should be manufactured to this standard, if sold within the UK and Europe. Many cheap 2-stroke machines are only EURO 1 compliant. There is an additional cost to manufacture a EURO 2 compliant engine as they require a three way catalyst in the exhaust silencer, though visually they will look the same. Most EURO 1 engines only have the normal catalyst which cannot pass EURO 2 standards and many of the cheaper circa 52cc machines on the UK market are not EURO 2 compliant. The 50.8cc engine is EURO 2 compliant for semi-professional use.
