How often should you run your gear if you have multiple items for spares, and do not use the long term storage option by draining and putting some 2 stroke oil through it??
I have 4 whippy's as an example and 1 or 2 hardly ever get used unless I want to give them a run or another breaks down??
How long before you start to get any problems and what are they??

My big brushy sat around in the shed from about 1988 till 2009 with the original fuel in it... had to replace the diaphragm. Another one (that one with the motor that looks like the sanli I showed you ages ago) sat around for at least 4 years and had been run dry and only needed new starter but one day I felt like smashing it when it wouldn't start. Apart from that day it works as a pole hedger now with little use.
