    thank you for getting back to me. What I have read (don't have the manual) on-line is that this model (TB75SS) is a two-cycle trimmer and therefore needs the mixture. Is this not true?/
    Thanks again.

1ST THIS TRIMMER IS A 4 CYCLE TYPE ENGINE (AS ALL TROY BUILT ARE) AND DOES NOT USE OIL IN THE GAS, SO THAT IS ALMOST CERTAINLY THE SMOKE PROBLEM PROBLEM HERE. IN A 4 STROKE ENGINE THERE ARE JUST A FEW THINGS THAT CAN CAUSE THIS SMOKE PROBLEM, ONE IS A DAMAGED CYLINDER WALL ANOTHER IS IS PISTON PROBLEM OR A BROKEN OIL CONTROL RING, ALSO ,MAKE SURE THE CRANKCASE VENT IS CLEAR, EXCESSIVE CRANKCASE PRESSURE CAN CAUSE SMOKE.

This model is a four cycle engine meaning that it does not a mix of gas and 2 cycle oil. You just fill it like your lawn mower, gas and fill the crank case with oil

I found the manual for this model weed eater, according to the manual the mixture...
and I quote "This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline. Before operation, gasoline
must be mixed with a good quality synthetic 2-cycle air cooled engine oil designed to be
mixed at a Ratio of 40:1 ...."
and I quote once more from the manual "Helpful Tip. To obtain
correct oil mix ration, pour 3.2 ounces of 2 cycle synthetic oil into one gallon of fresh gas."

Hope that helps,
If you like I can send the manual via email if you need it.

Trimmer is producing alot of white/blue smoke, got it to start and it will keep running, but the smoke seems excessive when using it. Not sure what the problem is.


This engine does NOT used mixed gas at all! It uses straight unleaded gas. If your using mixed fuel of any mixture ratio in the engine it is really going to smoke badly. What fuel are you using please?

Occasional heavy smoke on tickover, but not using oil and oil clean.


HI do you now the color of the smoke
if engine emits white smoke its not burning the fuel
it could be water mixing with fuel = head gasket even tho you
dot have water in the oil
if engine emits black smoke - that's excessive fuel to air ration
check air filter & air inlet to see if clogged

if engine emits blue smoke - excessive oil consumption
cloud be valve seals

Having problems starting Makita strimmer. There is quite a lot of smoke coming out and then it stops. Have looked at spark plug -clean, and cleaned air filter. Could the problem be the petrol and oil mix.


Use 50:1 gas/oil with a GOOD QUALITY 2-cycle low-ash synthetic oil.

Remove the muffler and check the spark arrestor isn't partially blocked.

With a clear muffler, and the mix as described, there will be hardly any smoke at all.

My trimmer tb 4 cycle smoke like 18 wheeler what my be a wrong wit it


You may have too much oil in the crankcase. You also may have broken piston rings. I would check the oil first. It could also be a carb problem. You just have to look at each possibility and eliminate them. ..Lee

Gas/oil mix


Most trimmers are using a 50:1 mix. 2.6oz/gal or 6.4oz/2.5gal. A 4oz/Gal is a 32:1 mix which way too oily and you will have problems of excessive smoke, oil leaking out muffler, carbon buildup causing sticking piston ring or a clogged spark arrestor.
