Question about Craftsman 25cc Gas Line Trimmer
Ex husband usually does the weedeating and he loaned me our craftsman weedeater. How do I start it? Choke on or off?
I hope you have fresh gas and 2-cycle oil mixed up! They always seem to start strong and explosively cut on good, fresh fuel. :D
2:Push the primer bulb (rubber ball by the side of the air filter) 3 times.
3:Place trimmer on ground. Grasp the handle, squeezing the throttle fully in left hand. Kneel and give that starter a crisp, sharp tug with your right hand. If the engine "hits", then push in the choke until off. Goto step 4.
If it does not give a hint of life, repeat the tug on the line 2 more times. If it STILL does not start, check for a distinct odor of gasoline. Likely, at this point, it is flooded, proceed to step 5.
4: With choke now off, continue to depress the throttle fully and give it another sharp pull on the starter. If it starts and revs? Let it idle for a minute to warm up, then go to work!
5:With choke OFF, press and hold throttle at full. It may take several pulls on the starter rope to see any life. If after 10 pulls and there is still no life, and still smells of gasoline - time to see the Ex about getting the trimmer looked after for some TLC. :D
