Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.) Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Correct gas to oil ratio for Homelite Mighty String Trimmer Model


most trimmers are 50:1. or 40:1. i would use synthetic 2 cycle oil and use the 50:1 ratio. i know guys with trimmers that require 50:1, and they use synthetic at 80:1 with no problems for years. they say the engine runs cleaner. i am a part-time lawn care operator.

Problems with my HomeLite UT20760 bogs down, no power


try this
you need to locate your muffler and find screws that remove a screen behind a plate you can remove on the muffler or behind the muffler itself
This screen is a spark arrestor screen and needs to be cleaned and put back or some would say discard all together, but i didnt say that.
give it a look see
this may be your problem and maybe not?
if it was you will see a trmendous difference afterwards
