You do not have one. Like 4-cycle push mower engines, these are splash lubricated. They lack a full-flow/pressure oiling system. When the oil gets dirty, dump it out and refill to proper specifications. Do this every 20 hours on this trimmer and it will stay happy for a long time.

This model is a four cycle engine meaning that it does not a mix of gas and 2 cycle oil. You just fill it like your lawn mower, gas and fill the crank case with oil

Troy built 27cc string trimmer Model TB21 EC. What is the gas oil mix ratio?


4 cycle engines do not run on mixed fuel. Run on straight fuel. They have a spot to put oil in just like a lawn mover, and should be changed regularly. @ stroke engines run on mixed fuel.

You need to unscrew the black bumper button. I believe it is counter-clockwise. Mine was very tight and took a pair of channel lock pliers to loosen.

Oil type for troy bilt weeder 4 cycle model # TB575SS


Non detergent, straight 30 weight.

Sometimes can be found labeled as "Tractor Oil". Otherwise, any premium 10w-30 I find in my experience with these stout 4-cycles to be just fine!

If breaking in engine from new, out of the box? Change oil with 10 hours on the clock with engine is still warm. You only need 3.2 Oz. to fill the crankcase!

So pour slowly. It is full when the trimmer is placed on a level workbench surface with the trimmer head dangling off the end. There is going to be a slight forward tilt away from the oil fill plug. Fill only until it just literally comes to the bottom of the oil fill plug with the trimmer laying flat on your workbench.

*DO NOT FILL IT UP WHILE HOLDING IT VERTICALLY!*

(I warned you. ;D )

Also at this time, clean and re-oil air filter and check your manual - these trimmers after break in require a valve lash adjustment. .005" @ TDC if my memory is correct....The manual I *think* states anywhere from .003 ~ .007 to be within spec. After break in, only need to adjust valves seasonaly. Regular oil changes @ 20~25 hours of run-time keeps them happy.

there should be a label stating the oil type somewhere on the engine or cap or owners manual, if not most manufacturers recomend a 30 weight oil. be sure to drain out the old stuff first.

Spark plug


You can obtain a spark plug at any Troy Built dealer. Lowes is ours. Your owners manual should tell you what type of oil to use. Again you can obtain it at Lowes.
