Dolmar 5000
« on: May 24, 2012, 02:48:20 am »
Hello I am from Romania and  my wife just bought me a present a new dolmar 5000 DK made in 2008 .the chainsaw works fine after 6 tanks of fuel in it but after reading on some forums I have a question: Is the  factory carburateor settings corect or do I have to adjust?
Some guys said the carburateor is set to run lean.
At my dealer they said the settings are corect.
I dont have a cat mufller on the chainsaw.

I never considered the factory settings to be correct. I always readjust them myself

JMO unless you have a good dealer that sets the saw up for you. I have found factory settings to be way to lean or just not what I like in a tune.

For a work saw I like rich four stroking out of cut and then it cleans up while in the cut.

They may be lean in the states for EPA reasons but set correctly in Europe? Just a thought.

It is better to have it too rich than too lean
