    I have the same problem on a trimmer that is less than a year old and has only been used for about three hours. It won't start and totally floods after a few pulls, so that when I take out the plug, and turn it upsude down the petrol runs out. After emptying the tank and pulling the cord with the plug out until the crankcase is empty, the trimmer will start if I squirt some ether spray into the carb. Obviously, it stops after a few seconds. Putting petrol back into the tank leads to the same thing - a drowned machine. Really sick of it!!

The most likely possibility is that the carb needs rebuilding. Just cleaning may not help. Gasgets go bad over time if fuel is left in the trimmer.

Starting up Ryobi Petrol Strimmer


full choke on , push petrol bubble 5 times then pull starter cord., with luck it will kick in to life after a 20/30 secs put on half choke , run again for 30 secs the no ckoke.

The main problem with Ryobi products is that they flood very very easly. So the more time you try and pump petrol into the carb the more it will flood . If that happenes then choke off and switch off and then just pull starter cord for about 30 secs then switch on and it could start if not prime it again as above good luck

What is the carb model # for zr05870, Its a Walbro carb?


From the pictures in the parts breakdown, this appears to be one of the newer model rotary-type carburetors. It is listed as part number 308028001. There is no mention of this machine in the Walbro carburetor application guide however. After viewing the picture and with the prefix of the carburetor known, you should be able to locate it on the Walbro website. I have the link to your machine's parts breakdown and to the Different Walbro models. Please view:

If you clean the dirt off the carb, the series no. and model no. will be etched into the body of the carb by the fuel inlet nozzel.

You need a primer bulb for a WalBro Carb. I am from the U.S. so I can't give you the name of your local dealer, but here is the information you need.
If you have a small engine repair shop nearby they may have one in stock or can order it. If you do not have a good repair shop in your are, go to Amazon.com and search for " 2 cycle primer bulb" to see pictures and figure out the correct one.
Arnold (MTD) has this part number Arnold 490-239-0001
Stens (another big parts distributor) has this part number
Primer Bulb WALBRO/188-12-1
If your primer bulb is separate from the carb here is the WALBRO/188-512-1 part.

I am looking for Ryobi brush cutter parts


Any local small engine service shop should have these parts in stock. Its called a 'primer bulb'.
Determine if the primer bulb is part of the carb or sperate from the carb with fuel lines connecting them. If seperate remember how the 2 lines get connected when you remove the bulb and replace with a new one. If a part of the carb...
You need to determine if the carb is a Zama or Walbro. It will have the name stamped on the carb. All Zama carbs use the same bulb. Walbro has a small and large bulb.
It would be worth while to install a new carb kit while you have the carb off and apart

It acts like it is flooded, starts with choke off and throttle depressed. runs until carb runs out of gas then dies


Yes, Your carburetor sounds like it needs cleaned. Or you may possibly need to purchase a carb. kit for your trimmer if the cleaning doesn't do any good. When cleaning the carb. use a Den Tek Brush, (teeth cleaning brush), to clean the small ports. Also, check the small screen in carb. Can get clogged easily.
