I bought my Stihl FS 55-R last summer. I had about an acre of weeds that were 6 feet high. (dead and brown) I didn't want to run my mower through there because I couldn't see what I might run over. The orange line that came with it was useless. I bought the 3 blade head and a bag of a dozen blades and that got me through that project. They cut well, but I broke a few. The trick is to cut with the edge of the circle and not get too impatient. (Same with the string...)
During normal operations around the place, I found that I was spending more time re-stringing the thing than cutting with it. It was very frustrating. I tried a string that had 3 edges thinking it would cut better, but it broke pretty often as well.
Then I found a string at Lowes, made by Husqvarna, that has a titanium string down the middle. It's silver and costs about 12.00 for a pretty big roll. (Not sure how long) I have found that now, I can run through about 2 tanks of gas before I run out of string and it almost never breaks.
I use namebrand Stihl octogon shaped trimmer line. I'm not sure exactly what the thickness is but it is one of the thickest ones available. The octogon shape line really cuts a bit better than most round line that I used before.
I am hoping to get some help. I have a craftsman 25cc gas trimmer and it will not stay on.
I have replaced the carburetor and still no luck
please advise of what I should do next.
thank you for reading my messaGe.
can I use this Ryobi Expand-It Pole Saw Attachment on my Ryobi 52cc Easy Start Brush Cutter? I'm thinking I can because theoretically Ryobi uses the same size split-shaft spline drive for both the 25.4cc power head and the 52cc power head.
Also would a 52cc engine be too powerful for...
I have a 1980's husqvarna 22r brush cutter. I am wondering if it is possible to clean the fuel filter or if it must be replaced.
Also it seems to overheat and lose power quite quickly. Not sure if the two are related.
All the gaskets have been replaced. The carb has been rebuilt. Piston...
Hey everyone, first time post here.
I'm trying to fix up my father's old Husqvarna 125 R. I found the replacement diagrams that match (seems as though there's some newer model 125 R's that are different) so I found the part #'s for almost everything I need (air filter, new cutting blade for the...
