Only issue with the gas Husqvarna is I don't use it enough and I'd have to drain the gas after each use.

Can you get ethanol free gas out there?

Sta-bil will give you a few months of no problems.
Ethanol free will let you start it up after ignoring it for two years.
I switched all my small engines to ethanol free, and haven't had any problems since.
Can't you just use the Husqvarna branded fuel in the cans?

I'll look into that.

Around here you can get pure fuel at all hardware stores and the big box stores

They even have it with premix ethanol free

It is expensive though to buy it in the cans, I think it’s about $20 a gallon

Isn't there an additive I can put in the tank?

I use Stabil and never have a bit of problem.
I have a friend that has just the opposite outcome with every tool he owns.
He's switched to the ethanol free and pays dearly for it.

Just reread your original question. Terra cotta tiles on top of concrete, I wouldn't use gasser. If you have a beam saw, put a 10" diamond blade on and go. Any circ with a 7" will do in a pinch. Don't really have to buy new tool, UNLESS, ya know...

I use Stabil Storage all the time. I'll also pick up gasoline with no ethanol at end of season at a marina. Boats use it.

What the hell is wrong with you? Why would you say something like that? Of course he has to buy a new tool. Pull yourself together man.

I only use the premixed stuff in my 2 stroke engines now.

It doesn't have ethenol in it and doesn't harm anything if it sits for a long time in the tank.

An added benefit is that you (or an employee, friend, etc.) can never get the oil to fuel ratio wrong and screw up the motor.

I never have starting issues or clogged carbs anymore

I have the 14” electric makita concrete saw. For inside or small jobs it’s prefect. For big stuff you can’t beat a gas saw for speed and power.

How well do you think it would work on 6 - 16"x16"x3.5" squares?
