Ryobi trimmer plus won't start. No sound at all

if it pulls super easy and it doesnt sound like the engine is even rotating when you pull it it is your pull cord assembly . basically its a giant ratchet my advise is just get a used one of a blown up weedeater it would be cheaper

Featherlight plus weedeater, where does the second gas tube go?

On a two-stroke engine, the second line is a pressure line.. it is actually running back to the tank and helps pressurize the tank to feed on the other line...there should be a second hole in the tank .
