Question about Toro 2-Cycle 25.4 cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer 51974

Open Question

Brand New Toro Lawn Trimmer Model 51976 - dies down as soon as the choke is switched to "RUN"

I bought this lawn trimmer last October, 2012 from Home Depot. Never opened the box until two days ago. Filled with gas and the two-cycle engine oil that came with it. Followed the procedure step by step. But it won't keep running no matter what. I notifced lot of white (or light gray) smoke puffs out when the motor starts. As soon as I lower the head to the ground, or turn choke to "RUN" position, it putters to a stop.

My Toro 12" Trimmer (Weed eater) needs a new screw down cap to hold the spool in place. Home Depot no longer carries them. That's wheree I got the last two Weedeaters.Please give me instructions as to...


Your Toro electric trimmer parts are readily available through www.partstree.com . However, to avoid having to pay $10 in shipping for a $5 part, you should try to find your local Toro dealer. They probably have the part in stock. Go to www.toro.com and search on the dealer/distributor locator to find your closest dealer.
You will need to know the model number (5 digit) and serial number for your trimmer. These can be located on a small sticker on the trimmer.
Good luck!

MightyLite is a Real POS. Brand new and only runs on half choke


Agreed all these cheap trimmers are built at a price the only way to tune them is to take it to the dealer, The special tool costs nearly as much as the machine.
So most machines under 100 dollars are throw away and replace its bs but everything is ending up the same.

Are you saying that this is a brand new trimmer or is it new to you, used trimmer? You are describing a problem that is typical of a used trimmer.

This is a sign of a clogged gas cap. When the gas cap can't breathe, it chokes out the carburetor.

Try this: The next time you run the trimmer, and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap, it should start running again.
