EXCALIBUR HEDGE TRIMMER BOGS DOWN AND DIES WITH THROTTLE

Just bought this off E-Bay, advertised as new but had been sitting up for a long time. The fuel lines ae all in good shape and in tack. The unit is veryhard to start and bogs down and dies with throttle. If I slowing ramp up the throttle it will gwt to full power but if I go to fast from idle to full throttle it dies. I have another identical trimmer that is alost 5 years old. Ive never even changed the plug on it and it starts and runs fine

Sounds like the air screws need adjusted on the carburator. If there are 2 the one with the L above needs to be turned althe way to the right but not to tight and then backed out 1/2 turn to left. The one with the H anove it do the same except back it out 1 and 1/4 turns to left. If it only has 1 screw dot he same but back out 2 complete turns. Hope this helps?

SOURCE: HEDGE TRIMMER IS EASY TO START AND RUNS GREAT AT

You have two adjustment screws on the carb, one is for adjustment the mix at idle and the other under throttle conditions. You can tune the engine by ear. Refer to your manual for which screw is which. If you don't have it you can figure it out by letting the engine idle and give one of the screws a half turn (CC or CW doesn't matter) if that affects the idle condition readjust that screw back to the original position and proceed to adjust the other screw with the throttle full pressed. You will be able to hear the engine lean out or when it runs too rich, simply listen to the engine for when it starts to rev properly.

Why does husqvarna 123hd60 bogs on revs


Mix up some "carburetor & fuel injector cleaner" in a batch of fuel, Nathan, at the rate specified on the bottle of cleaner. Run it through the hedge trimmer just like normal fuel. For right NOW, you can use the choke to keep the trimmer running. As the cleaner works, you should need less & less choke to keep it going.

It may take a while.

Next time you store that trimmer for winter, drain it fully and run it until it dies from lack of fuel. Then it won't form varnish on the carburetor jets over the winter - that varnish is what's causing your problems now.

What is the current oil/gas mix for the excalibur 22" hedge clippers? How about the new oils like Echo an Brigg/stration that are used at 50/1. Would 50/1 be acceptable in the weed eater excalibur?


50:1 is 50:1 no matter whose 2 cycle mix you use. 50:1 is 2.6 ounces of 2cycle mix to 1 gallon (US) of gasoline. I recommend strongly to use a brand that contains fuel stabilizer. It will come in a 3.2 ounce bottle...still 50:1. The premium 2 cycle oils will be semi-synthetic or full synthetic and will claim "no smoke"

Hedge trimmer put away for winter. will run but not stay running. put in new diaframs for carb . same results. i am questioning the gas cap now. is it possible that it can cause a problem with keeping this...


YES, this system relys on pressure and the ionic nature of gasonline to pull the fuel through the system. If the gas cap is off or damaged where a seal is no longer possible, try taping it up with duct tape and see if that helps

22" excalibur hedge trimmer has no spark and will not start


remove plug and ground and see if you have spark at electrode.

Sometimes will not fire under compression.

Check that kill switch is not shorted, just remove the wire going to ground and try again.
If not probably bad coil.
