Agnes take of the cutting head again and see if it runs at full speed without it. If it does you have either put the head on too tight or it's the wrong head.

SOURCE: mcculloch petrol hedge trimmer, no petrol seems to be getting

There should be a strainer on the fuel intake line in the fuel tank. Take it out and clean or replace it, and check the fuel lines for cracks or leaks. If this doesn't fix it, disassemble and clean the primer button. There should be a little one way flap valve that opens to allow fuel to be sucked in from the fuel tank and closes to push the fuel into the carburetor.

SOURCE: stihl strimmer engine runs but wont cut grass

First take the head off and look for grass, weeds and string wound up in there. A lot of times that's the problem.

Next, with the head off and the switch in the off position, pull it over a few times and see if the shaft spins. If not, could be a broken shaft or a bad clutch.

Hi wev put the bit on for the line onr mcculloch tm 250 petrol strimmer. Can u tell me how you get it back off thanks

Hold the big alloy nut above the trimmer head with a suitable spanner, then turn the whole head anti clockwise as you look at it whilst holding the nut, the complete head will spin off.

Mcculoch mt 300mcculoch petrol strimmer carb two adjustable screw bolts ones for petrol, ones petrol & air mixture hich one does which

Actually both screws are for petrol mix. The screw closest to the engine is the Lo side. Lo side jet provides petrol at idle and during the ramp up to speed. Hi side jet (closest to air filter) only effects the mix at high speed.
From McCulloch, these were set at 1 1/4 turns out.
Good luck!

Mcculloch t 240 petrol will not start

If your petrol has been sitting in the machine for a long time then yes it is your petrol. Mix a new batch usually you cannot let that sit around for more than 30 days, I always try to use fresh mixes, usually that means making smaller batches unless you use your trimmer quite a bit, most people do not though and that's when problems arise.

Mcculloch strimmer/brush cutter - cuts out when throttle opened

Hi sounds like it could need a diaphram kit in the carby if it has mixture screws one markedl for low speed and one marked h for high speed you can try winding out the low speed screw a bit but if that does not work it will definatly need a kit.
