Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower

1 Answer

I just bought a Weed Eater 22" gas push mower. Do I mix oil with the gas to run, as I do not see an oil input? p.s. I purchased this at a yard sale.

    It seems to be a Weed Eater brand name, but it's made by Briggs and Stratton.

If it has a dipstick or plug to check the oil in the engine you do NOT mix gas and oil.
Use regular unleaded gas only and use 30 weight detergent oil in the engine crankcase if it is low.

What kind of oil do i use to mix with gas for my Poulan gas trimmer. Can i use WD30 motor oil or does it have to specifically say its for 2stroke engines? the ratio on the trimmer says 40:1 so i assume...


DO NOT USE MOTOR OIL!!!

There is a special 2-stroke engine oil mix that you can purchase at various stores that have outdoor equipment or you can also find mix at Walmart. There are instructions for proper mixing on the bottle.

Remember not to put 2-stroke mixed fuel in your lawn mower unless it is also 2-stroke (rare). And the converse is also true, do not put your 4-stroke lawn mower fuel in your 2-stroke weed eater.

If this is really helpful, please rate.

What ratio of oil and gas do I mix together? How do you start it? I bought the weed eater used.


If you bought it used, you can bet that they didn't run it out of fuel before they stored it, so the gas evapoated out of the carb and all that was left was oil, so mix your fuel 8 to one eight parts gas and one part oil, you'll have to hit the primer botton several times.

Weed eater 22" mower with


Hi stnstomper...

Look under the mower for a square plug or allen wrench type plug, this will be your oil drain for the motor.
Some of Briggs & Stratton motors do not have an oil drain plug...
If you do not have an oil drain plug then you will have to run the mower to get it warm, then remove the oil fill plug and tip the mower towards the oil fill plug to drain out the oil thru the fill plug hole.

What is the current oil/gas mix for the excalibur 22" hedge clippers? How about the new oils like Echo an Brigg/stration that are used at 50/1. Would 50/1 be acceptable in the weed eater excalibur?


50:1 is 50:1 no matter whose 2 cycle mix you use. 50:1 is 2.6 ounces of 2cycle mix to 1 gallon (US) of gasoline. I recommend strongly to use a brand that contains fuel stabilizer. It will come in a 3.2 ounce bottle...still 50:1. The premium 2 cycle oils will be semi-synthetic or full synthetic and will claim "no smoke"

My B&S Yard Machine shoots out white smoke it also leaks out oil and gas mixed


If this is a 4 cycle mower (seperate places for gas and oil) and you are using a oil and gas mix as I am reading from your post that is your problem. When you use a gas&oil mix in a 4 cycle you get smoke and if fouls your spark plug. Also be more specific where the oil and gas mixed is leaking from. I SUGGEST THAT YOU DRAIN OUT THE GAS&OIL MIX AND CLEAN THE SPARK PLUG OR REPLACE AND FILL WITH STRAIGHT GAS AND SEE HOW IT RUNS.

Good luck

My weedeater brand trimmer won't start


I believe you have the wrong GAS AND OIL MIXTURE. MOST WEED EATERS are a Ration of 90:1 or even less 75:1 For WEEDEATER I would use a 50:1 or if you choose 32:1 should work. Use a good 2-stroke oil. DO NOT USE ANY OTHER OIL> You see the more oil you use the harder it is to start. Don't forget to Pump the fuel Bulb on the side before trying to start it.About 3 x should do it. GOOD LUCK and it is and does effect me when their is death by a LOVED ONE. My prayers are with you! From Mddoc13 ( BOB)

Yard machine 21'' push mower runs 2 to 3 seconds cuts off.


Tip the mower up on it's side with the dipstick tube on the down side and collect it in a suitable container. The gas you can do the same. When I drain old fuel, I mix it with a lot of fresh fuel and a bottle of dry gas then run it in my car.
