Where does gas go?

I inherited a tecumsch big red (? ) yard trimmer, I see where the gas goes but I cannot tell where the oil goes. there is a yellow cap on the lower right of the machine I suspect that is where it goes but want to be sure and what kind of oil?

SOURCE: how to feed trimmer line on y25 yard trimmer gas

Depending on what type of string head you have. If it's a "tap and go" style head, just rev it up full throttle and tap it on the ground. It should feed the string out and the blade on the shield will cut off the string to the correct length.

What is the gas oil mixture for homelite sx135 trimmer


Use 32:1 with good quality 2-cycle oil. I have Used Stihl, Homelite, Poulan and Several Other 2 Cycle Trimmers in the Yard Maintenance Service and Have Found the 32 to 1 Mixture to Extend the Life of the Engine. Always Remember to Drain the Tank and Run the Engine Until the Carbuetor is Empty for Off Season Storage.

How long should trimmer run on a charge.


How large is your yard? On a small yard (like a townhouse front & back yard) the trimmer should last long enough to do the yard a couple of times before needing to be recharged, but it depends on the individual yard, how many weeds you have, and whether you keep it running a long time.

If the trimmer charges at all but not for a very long time, it's either the charger or the battery. Check the charger when it's charging to make sure the red light stays on -- if it goes off or blinks, you need a new charger. If the charger light stays on but the battery doesn't hold a charge, you need a new battery.

Hope that helps!
