There should be a label stating the oil type somewhere on the engine or cap or owners manual, if not most manufacturers recomend a 30 weight oil. be sure to drain out the old stuff first.

Is there something that can be put in the fuel to keep the fuel line from disintegrating?


You can add a fuel stabilizer to the fuel to prevent that from happening. You should always add the stabilizer to new fuel and it can be used in all of your engines, everything from a string trimmer to your car. The ethanol in today's fuel is causing many problems, especially with 2-cycle and 4-cycle engines. You can buy Star Tron fuel stabilizer from PartsBuggy.com. A good size is the 8 oz bottle. It treats 48 gallons of fuel with one bottle.

This model is a four cycle engine meaning that it does not a mix of gas and 2 cycle oil. You just fill it like your lawn mower, gas and fill the crank case with oil

Troy built 27cc string trimmer Model TB21 EC. What is the gas oil mix ratio?


4 cycle engines do not run on mixed fuel. Run on straight fuel. They have a spot to put oil in just like a lawn mover, and should be changed regularly. @ stroke engines run on mixed fuel.

Do you mix the gas and oil together with the Troy-Bilt4 cycle TB575SS. Lost directions. Thank you


No. You do that for a 2-stroke engine. Your engine should have oil in the crankcase and you just need to check the level of it and add gas to it like a regular lawnmower engine.

You need to unscrew the black bumper button. I believe it is counter-clockwise. Mine was very tight and took a pair of channel lock pliers to loosen.

How do I change the oil filter on my troy built 4 cycle trimmer


You do not have one. Like 4-cycle push mower engines, these are splash lubricated. They lack a full-flow/pressure oiling system. When the oil gets dirty, dump it out and refill to proper specifications. Do this every 20 hours on this trimmer and it will stay happy for a long time.

I am able to crank the trimmer but it does not stay on. in the past it worked just fine but sat unused for roughly 4 months and now this. we own a TB425cs string trimmer. how do i fix this issue?


1) Change out the old fuel (not just adding fresh but pouring out the old and replacing it entirely) and check the engine oil.

2) Check muffler and/or spark arrestor screen for restrictions.

3) Clean and reinstall spark plug (check gap).

4) Replace inlet screen INSIDE the carb. (It is located directly under the inlet needle.)

Try each of these as needed.
Hope this helps!
