Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.

Good Luck, I hope this helped

Keeps cutting out


Possible cause: Never use gasoline unless it is properly mixed with 2-cycle engine lubricant. Permanent damage to engine will result, voiding manufacturer's warranty.

I had a trimmer that I put straight gas into and I couldn't keep it running.

Replace trimmer line


The steps for replacing line in a single line trimmer head are virtually the same for many trimmer head types, like double line trimmer heads.
1. Remove the Trimmer Head Spool
Removing the spool is the first step in replacing trimmer line in any conventional trimmer head, but trimmer head spools can disassemble in different ways.
The trimmer head pictured above and below disassembles by simply unscrewing the knob around its arbor bolt. Other trimmer heads can use press tab and other twisting styles for disassembly.
2. Insert Trimmer Line and Wind the Line
Single line trimmer heads have just one channel in their spools for winding line. The channel will have a hole in it somewhere that keeps the line in place as it is wound around the spool. Insert one end of the trimmer line in the hole.
Depending on the trimmer head, it might be helpful to bend a small portion of the cutting line at an angle before inserting it in the starter hole. Also, cutting the line at an angle can help this first step on some trimmer heads.
Of course, it is also important to make sure that the replacement line matches the diameter specification of the trimmer head before beginning. Once the line is started correctly in the channel hole, you're ready to wind. Most trimmer heads will indicated the correct winding direction right on the spool somewhere.
It's also important to wind the line carefully, keeping it in neat rows as much as possible. The line will have a much higher chance to feed incorrectly during trimmer use if it suffers from sloppy winding.
3. Snap the Line into its Retaining Notch
A conventional trimmer head will have a retainer on its spool. Snap the end of the trimmer line into the retainer after it is wound around the spool. The retainer will hold the line in place as the spool is replaced in the trimmer head assembly.
4. Replace the Trimmer Head Spool
With the cutting line held in place, the spool is ready to be replaced in the trimmer head assembly.
First feed the extra trimmer line through the trimmer head eyelet. Make sure to release the line from the retainer before completely securing the spool into position.
Replace any knobs, bolts, or other trimmer head pieces removed during disassembly.
Your single line trimmer line is now reloaded, and your trimmer should be ready to get back to work.
Although there are many steps to reloading line the conventional way, a little practice and familiarity with your trimmer will speed the process up a great deal. Once you're up to speed, reloading trimmer line this way can take less than five minutes.

The trimmer starts but will not keep running, I replaced fuel lines and filters and put a rebuild kit in the carb. Same problem, starts fine but will not keep running


Its a longshot but I had a problem with my hedge trimmer, it kept cutting out when idling.
It turned out that a clutch spring was broken so the clutch shoes had nothing to restrain them and would fly out and make contact with the clutch drum and stall the machine.
Air locks in the fuel lines will also cause this symptom. These can be caused by running the machine with low fuel level in the tank and cutting upside down or at a sharp angle.

The line trimmer does not cut the line i have to keep a pair of scissors to trim the string in my pocket


The trimmer guard should have a small steel blade where the line strikes the shield that keeps the line cut to the correct length. Check your shield to make sure the blade hasn't come loose. If it has, you should be able to get a replacement blade for it. If the shield has been beaten up too much, you'll have to replace the shield.

My line on my grasshop keeps getting longer and longer....it doesn't cut as used. How come?


There should be a metal knife attached to the inside of the guard housing. This knife will keep the string at a length that keeps it within the housing. It is either screwed or snapped in place. If present, clean the debri away from it so it can cut the line as it should.

Ryobi rht266oda 26cc petrol hedge trimmer. runs well blades move but will not cut very well, only got last year and went well, nut and boult came loose this year first time out was mended but will not cut,...


You may need to take it to a professional to sharpen. It may have some trash in between the blades keeping it from not cutting. Plus when you use it try spraying some WD40 on the blades to help them move and cut.

Trimmer safety problem


# Keep all people and animals away from the area you're working in # Hold the hedge trimmer correctly using both hands # Make sure the hedge trimmer's switched off and idle before attempting to remove any jammed cuttings # Wear protective clothing including heavy-duty footwear and safety goggles to protect your eyes from flying cuttings # Electric hedge trimmers: Don't use in wet weather. Keep the cable well away from where you are cutting and check that the socket outlet has working RCD protection # Read the manufacturer's instructions before use

18v cordless string trimmer will not stop feeding line


Some of the trimmers recommend a certain size line, if you have one of these that let line out as needed, the speed at which the trimmer cuts will let out line as needed. If you have too small of line the drag for the friction let-out you will spoll all the line out. Make sure the line is the right size, They come in alot of sizes, anywhere from .060" to .125" line thickness so make sure you have the right size line!
