You can use any brand of two stroke oil as long as it says on the container that it is suitable for air cooled engines and you need to mix it at a ratio of 25 to 1. Regards Phil

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Pick one,
Toro 2 stroke oil
Ryobi 2 stoke oil
Briggs and Stratton 2 stroke oil
Castrol 2 stroke oil
Pennzoil 2 stroke oil
quaker 2 stroke oil
walmart 2 stroke oil
kmart 2 stroke oil.
( I think you get the point but.. to be called 2 stroke oil they all have to meet the same quality standards find the cheapest one and buy it by the quart / liter )


It really is a matter of getting 2 stroke oil and mixing it per the manufacturers mixing ratios

Use this calculator mixture computations http://www.csgnetwork.com/oilfuelcalc.html
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

the carb and fuel lines will most likely need repair, i would mix a little extra 2 stroke oil in the gas on the first run, and a few drops 2 stroke oil in the cylinder is a good idea..oh and you might want to check the spark arrester on the muffler .. jay

Homelite trimmer, gas, string - y is the string wrapping itself around the head of the trimmer?


The line on my new 26cc Homelite would also feed out by itself. That started me thinking the line was wound backwards. I wrapped the line in the opposite direction as was shown on the bump feed reel and now the dang thing works although the bump feed needs to be "bumped" pretty hard to work. Is it possible that the reel was manufactured with the (string direction) arrows pointing the wrong direction? The new 26cc unit is also underpowered compared to my older 25cc trimmer.

Homelite hedge trimmer , motor runs but blades do


Had the same problem: when I turn on the trimmer, the motor would hum but the blades won't move.
What I did:
1. Sprayed a ton of wd40 between the blades
2. Took a screwdriver and kinda wedged it between the blades to get them unstuck. Also removed some guck between the blades.
And it worked!

Oil ratio


you can use a 40:1 mix if it smokes then cut it back to 32:1 but a little more oil is better than not enough so start with the 40:1
