petrol/2 stroke strimmer.


Recommended Posts

Thanks for the good advice and I think I will go for a Stihl.

 

I have also recognised my problem through some of the suggestions.

My strimmer gets very heavy use for a few weeks , then sits doing nothing for a while.

I thinks its an "old fuel", or "oil/petrol separation" issue that is giving me the most problems.

 

Some home servicing, like draining off the fuel when I put it away for a while, may help.
