Yes it needs line. Take the trimmer and line to the owner and have them them show you how to load and advance the line.

I have an Stihl FS-86 weedeater/ trimmer and it keeps cutting off when i pull the trigger and when it runs for about an hour and gets hot. What could be the problem with it?


I'm pretty sure that there is a problem with the carb., with it being a FS-86 it should be old enough to still have adjustments on the carb. if so I'd start by turning the low (L) side needle out (counter clockwise) about 1/8 turn and see if that helps. If the carb. has no adjustment or only hi (H) then I would change the metering diaphragm on the metering side of carb.. As far as a timing issue it's not, unless there is a problem with the flywheel. on a 2-cycle string trimmer the timing is set were they have the flywheel keyed to the shaft and is non adjustable.

How do the fuel lines in a weedeater trimmer pe550 hook up inside the gas tank


I have an older model that has a weighted filter in the tank. The filter flops around and can 'fall' into the fuel no matter which way you tilt the trimmer/tank. You should have one in your tank. Feed in the new line and make the end come out the gas cap. Push the filter/weight into the end of the fuel line. Pull the extra fuel line out of the tank to match the original position. You should have cut the new line to approximately the proper or same length as the old fuel line with an angle cut so you could push it into the tank.

How to change the cutting line in a curved shaft fs45 *******


No, I'm not sure why STIHL even makes curved shaft trimmers at all. I have never worked on ine in 10 years of being a STIHL tech, I just throw them out when they don't work and steer the customer to a straight-shaft. It's their punishment for the mistake of buying the curved shaft in the first place.

Weedeater gas line


I ran a short piece of coathanger that I cut through the fuel line and used electrical tape (stretched tight) to tape it securely at the end and pushed it thru the hole. Then I removed the electrical tape and cut off the part of the hose that had been taped. You waste an inch or two of fuel line, but that's how I got mine thru. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

Stihl weedeater starts but won't run at high speed


This sounds like a timing problem.
It is too far retarded, and needs advancing a couple of thou.
There you go:)

My stihl weedeater starts and idles fine but does not get power.


I have a Stihl FS 45 and have had problems with it running for a short time then cutting out. The problem is like to be either- the filter attached to end end of the fuel pick hose that goes down into the fuel tank is blocked or- there is a crack or split in the corrugated section of the fuel pick up hose between the fuel tank and the carburettor. If such a crack or split exists it will cause air to be sucked in with the fuel upsetting the fuel/air ratio. A new hose not adjustment is the only cure

I have a weedeater brand weedeater and need to know how to take the spool off so I can wind more line on it?


if its the newer type all you need to do is grab the black knob at the bottom of the trimmer head and pull it carefully straight towards you and it should pop off
wind line on the spool in the direction the arrow shows you there is a small hole you put the line in to start the line before you wind it it is labeled .065 or .080
wind about 10-15 feet of either .065 line or .080 line and lock the line in at the edge of the spool and thread the excess thru the hole and push spool back on and pull each line until it unhooks from where you locked it in .
this is the directions to the weedeater heads and spools mostly used on this product.

if its two lines then pull out 20 feet of new line cut it and put the two cut ends side by side and insert the cut ends into their respective holes in the spool and wind in the direction of the arrow until you wind to the loop then cut the loop lock your lines into place and thread it thru both holes keeping the lines kind of tight and push the spool onto the housing as it snaps in pull each line to unlock it from where they were held so the bump feed will work.

hope this helps you

Stihl weed eater runs 2min. then stop


Stihl weedeater was running and stopped suddenly. Put in a new fuel filter and cleaner air filter with soap and water. Checked spark plug and it appeared fine. Started the weedeater, ran for a second or so and stopped. Spark plug wasn't gas fouled. Could it be the carburetor needing new diaphram gasket and spring.
