User Review: Optimus Hiker+
I had to take mine apart, and blow it out with my garage compressor, because it was giving a very weak pulsing flame. Now it works really great. It had a tiny piece of the fuel filter floating around inside the burner....kept clogging and un clogging. I had read of this problem online, from other users.
Now, it's a real flame thrower. One of my best.
I love it.
Great stove, built like a tank. Dead reliable. I'd say maybe we should test our equipment at home before we head out in a blizzard? If stoves don't work, they're usually simple to fix. Mine was just suffering from a tiny little piece of filter.
