    What is the best way to break in the 350 Pipe Pro with the Mitsubishi engine?
    Should I keep it on high idle?

    I am assuming that you bought this machine brand new. You will find the recommended run-in procedure in your owners manual. It is typically done with a load bank or resistance grid. you can't just idle the motor, you have to put it under load between 2-4 hours, usually it is what the machine is rated at,(20V).

    high idle will F--k it, best to get alota scrap and go at it with 1/4 " rod, or gouging.

    Best bet would be to take it to a repair shop and have them step load it for 3 hrs or so

    Why in the world isn't this done already? Looks like it would stop a lot of warranty problems.

    Engine manufacturer is not going to hook it up to something and load it. They will start and preprogram it. Its not cost effective for them to load it for several hours, change the oils ect...

    Miller installs the engine into the case. Miller really doesn't care if the engine crashes as thats a Engine Warranty thing. Nothing to do with Miller

    So do you offer a break-in service at your shop?

    I was passing thru that way last summer and was as close as Calgary.
    Maybe closer. Was coming from Fairbanks.
