Question about Garden
My husband is using a chainsaw or trying too. I know nothing about this so bare with me. When he pulls the handle thingy to start it, it will start and hold for about 5 seconds max, than cut off. It almost sounds like a car flooding with gas. It is full of gas. It also looks like when it goes to recoil, it punches the handle back out and thats when it dies. i know thats not very helpfull but any ideas?
Every year the spark plug must be replaced on chainsaws for the best performance.
So your current plug is probably fouled or has an incorrect gap from last years use.
Record your chainsaw's make and model number then go to your local large hardware store and to the lawn area, they will have a replacement spark plug. And if you don't have a ratcheting socket wrench set with spark plug removal socket, this is a great time to get one. the size will be 5/8 inch.
Always use Safety glasses and ear protection.
