SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: How do I feed string into my Homelite Mighty Lite

cut a 6 ft piece and wind it (starting with the middle of the trim line) around the head with each head going opposite directions. When you get it wound up, you will have two pieces sticking out in opposite directions and they can be clipped into the small plastic slots on the edge of the string canister. THen press the ball on, and attach to the trimmer.. Just keep the string the grooves and you will be fine...


OHYEAH!!! dont worry if it keeps coming unwound or pops off the trimmer at first, it will happen until you develop the technique needed for a quick replacement


GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!

Once you have the string wound onto the spool, place the spool onto the shaft and pull the strings out of the slots so that the string feeds through the holes without going through the slots. Good luck...Lee

Pull start


Good chances is that the cord either got pulled to far out or the spring let go inside the cover that controls the rewind. It's not a big job...just remember how you took it apart www.nnyparts.com
