    I have run my trailblazer like that for years without any problems. If I'm going to be running rod after rod or cac I put it on the "rabbit" position. If I'm going to be fitting, grinding with a few welds I leave it in "turtle" position. When my feeder is plugged in it automatically goes to the weld setting.

    Default Bob cat 225 g ...serial no kc 316991..

    Hi ...I have a related problem with my bobcat 225 g ( not sure of the year of manufacture ) serial no kc 316991....for the past 12 months it has started to "rev" up on its own after it gets hot ...which takes about 5 mins ...does any one here know why it is doing this ??.. the solenoid on the carburettor that rev's the engine up after i strike the arc ...or plug some thing in to the power point is operating on its own ....its a nuisance is doing this every few seconds ...maybe some one has had a similar experience ...I know it works by sensing electrical drain ...the battery is new ...thanks in advance
