Bigfatber, looks like you're right, I drained the oil out and refilled. Seems the smoke cleared up, must have been overfilled. It's a shame Eskimo didn't suggest this. Anyway, thanks for the advice.

It probably uses a little oil, always has smoked. I tried calling Eskimo on this, they just blame the customer by saying I store it wrong. I guess I'll end up taking to a service center. I think it has a bad valve seal or valve guide, that's the only thing I know of why oil gets on top of the piston.

I do have a problem, I don't think it's supposed to smoke at all. I set it down with the arrow pointing up, just like you do when you check or add oil.

It IS stored upright, and yes, it is propane. What's in the air filter is probably blow by, not a lot of oil like it's leaking.

I believe it is oil smoke, like an old Small Block Chevy that's been sitting overnight. I originally filled it with the 3.7 oz. bottle that came with it. I've noticed that the foam air filter gets wet with oil.

I have an Eskimo HC 40 that throws a pretty good puff of smoke on start up. Has done this ever since new, always set it down with the spark plug facing up like you're supposed to. Anyone else have this problem? And no, don't tell me to go electric.

I think it has about 45 hrs. on it. My friend has had his for 3 yrs. and has about 200 hrs. on it. Neither one of us have any problems with them.

I have a Powerhorse 2000, quiet, easy on gas. Been satisfied with it.

Congratulations on your retirement Kirk. It won't take you long to lose track of the days, because when you don't have a work schedule anymore, it doesn't matter! A nice problem to have!

Propane cylinders are filled to 80%, if you're only getting 50%, you're getting short - changed.
