I have a Hsuqvarna 750BTS with which the trigger has been getting sticky for a while. I tried WD40 as though it was just some dust. I had gotten worse & at the beginning of the week I took the trigger apart to inspect it. Only to find that the throttle cable is jammed fully open. Just when we all need the blowers every day!
I am not that mechanically minded to take the whole asemmbly apart so started ringing around to get it in for repairs/servicing. I found that lots of the localish guys won't touch Hussy kit, due to issues with finding spares. Of those that do I asked what the hourly labour charge is. Now I have used a company & brought kit from them in the past, Horace Fuller, in Surrey, they quoted me £90,00 per hour +vat. £108. ph I was astounded that is of course without parts as well. The guy on the phone knew it was wrong as he kept saying 'The boss says we have to charge this'. Utter madness. I wouldn't expect to pay a car mechanic this unless a main dealer.
After lots of calls the best I can get is a company with a 3 week wait (quite a few like that surprisingly atm) They want £65.00 ph How much are others charging in other area's? It seems that there is a premium for working with Hussy, have any of you guys had this issue as well?
