Question about Poulan 25cc 2-Cycle Gas Powered String Trimmer #P2500

1 Answer

Toro String trimmer will not start; good spark; getting gas

Have confirmed by multiple methods that spark and gas are good, but many many tries with different fuel mixture settings (choke, mixture adjustment screws, air filter cleaned /removed) yields not even the hint of it 'catching'. my guess is it has to be a timing problem but not really familiar with small 2-cycle engines. what are the possible problems & fixes?

Have two string trimmers, both hard to start. shindawa homelite 62061 & toro TB21EC. H/L does great job when it starts. Toro won't come up to speed. Have cleaned carbs in both and checked plug


When you say it will not rev up to full speed, that sounds to me like a blockage either in the spak arrester in the muffler outlet, or the exhaust port is blocked, or the muffler itself is blocked.

My toro 51970a trimmer has been leaking gas and flooding for the past few weeks, but I could start it. Today, it is gushing gas from the back when I pull the starter string. How do i fix this?


The carburetor needs to be removed and inspected. The malfunctions possibly indicate the need for a repair kit. I've been unable to locate your exact model, but if it has the 2-Stroke engine (gas/oil mix), then you will at the very least..need a gasket and diaghragm kit installed per inspection. There is the possibility that the carburetor needs a complete rebuild and would require the complete rebuild kit. Remove the gas lines (after draining gas). Remove the carb and inspect the screws and tightness of the screws in the 2 end covers. Are the screws tight? If not tighten them up and reinstall, trying to restart the machine. Post back if needed.

I dont know what string to use in my toro 8" battery trimmer


The thinner string works well in these machines and puts a lot less strain on them. I would suggest using a string of .065 range. The thicker (and more expensive) string used in the gas machines is too heavy for these lower powered electric units.

Try getting some fresh gas and 2 cycle oil mix. Mix up a fresh batch and see how that works for you..
When I say fresh I mean from the gas station not from the can in the garage.
Good Day.

String breaking


Check to ensure that the string is the correct size as specified in the owners manual. If ok check age of the string. If old it has a tendancy to be brittle. If new and supple try letting the trimmer get up to full speed and let the tip of the string do the cutting. Avoid taking on too much at once with this trimmer as the electric and battery trimmers are not as powerful as their gas counterparts. I hope this helps.
