I don't know how to thread the Craftsman Electric Leaf Wacker

This was given to us used. We've had it in our garage for a long time with no instructions. I bought some thread, but can't figure out how to use it.

The center rotating disk contains two sets of holes, very near the center silver screw on my unit. The holes form two small tunnels through the black plastic. You cut two 10-12 inch pieces of heavy plastic weedwacker line and thread one piece through each tunnel. the loose ends are then poked through the large hole nearby so that each set of lines points straight out from the center. You end up with four cutting "blades" which revolve to cut up the leaves. The don't have to be attached...they stay in place as they rotate.. I could send you a picture but I think you will not need one. good luck, Vernon

    This sounds like the leaf shredder I just sold. I am looking for a manual to send to the elderly gentleman who bought it. It is a Sears Craftsman Leafwacker Plus, Model 633.799861. Any idea where I can get one?

The charger that comes with Homelite 24v mower is crappy. I've gone thru 3 of them. What's a better alternative?

I have used a DieHard portable battery charger (model 200.71222) for several years to recharge my 24-volt, 18-year old Craftsman mulcher, model 315.370270. This is after the on-board charger died. I just disconnect the link between the two 12-volt batteries and remove all other battery connections. Then connect the charger leads to the positive and negative terminals on one of the batteries before plugging in the charger. I put the settings on the charger at conventional low maintenance and 2 amps. Charge one battery and then the other (assuming you have two 12-volt sealed lead acid batteries like my mower). I use binder clips 530-t.jpgfrom an office supply store to hold the battery wires on the terminals when I'm mowing...makes it simpler to remove and reattach for charging instead of the nut-and-bolt connectors that came with the mower.

Flowtron LE-900D Leaf Shredder- Spinner flies off.

The screw is a common one, Make sure it is at least a grade 5 or grade 8. The o-ring may be another matter, but should be available at hardware and most definitely a hydraulic hose shop would have it.

My electric leaf vacuum has sparks shooting out. Why? I have only had it one season, is it worth repairing?

No I am sorry to say that unit is toast. The amount of money you would spend to get it fix, you could go out and buy two new ones.
Good Day.

Machine emitting sparks

It sounds like the motor is going bad. If it is electric, it may be time for a new one. If it is gas powered; It may be time for a engine rebuild.

I have an older electric start craftsman lawn mower. It's @15 years old and runs well. I just don't know where to plug it in on the mower for the electric start. It was my Dad's but he's gone and I have no...

"Electric Start" means that it is started by an electric motor (the starter) which is powered by a BATTERY (the electric) much the same as a car. One does not PLUG it in. If it does not turn over when you turn the key, repost your question and include the Sears model number >>917.xxxxxx<< the x's being numbers 0 thru 9 off the tag on the back end of the mower near or under the seat and I will see if I can steer you to an operators manual for it

Electric mower not starting.

I have no idea if your problem is related to mine, but my B&D electric mower did the same. The cord worked on other equipment so wasn't a bad cord. It turned out I had to get a higher amp cord for the mower. Why it worked for a while on the other cord I don't know but I've had no further problems with it. The cord was expensive though.

Flowtron Leaf-Eater Mulcher LE-900F

Shot in the dark here. If the mulcher is tripping and needs to turned off then back on, it's defective and should be replaced. If the circuit breaker in your house panel is tripping, try to use different circuit on a 20 amp circuit breaker. If your using a plug that is controlled by a GFCI receptacle or breaker, move to a different plug. GFCI receptacles tend trip when motor loads are applied. These are my best guesses since I'm not sure what exactly you are reseting.

How do you intall the cutting string on a Flowtron leaf eater?

I have an electric weedwacker which may be different. In the leaf wacker there are four small holes very near the center screw on the revolving shaft. These holes form two small tunnels. cut two pieces of line (10-12 inches) and stick one through each tunnel. Center each line, put the two ends together and poke them out through the small hole on the edge of the rotating shaft. You end up with two sets of plastic line facing out from the central shaft. Flowtron may be different. Good luck.
