Question about Homelite Leaf Vac Attack

1 Answer

My Homelite Vac Attack II is 4 years old and I

My Homelite Vac Attack II is 4 years old. It starts great and will run for about 3 minute and then dies. After 30 seconds I can start it again but it will only run for a few seconds. I have changed the fuel mix to 32:1, per experts recommendation. I replaced the fuel filter/tank assembly but the condition has not improved. Any suggests on how to fix the stall issue? It is the UT 08544 blower/vac.

Fit new pump ad float diaphragms in the carby
the fuel mix has become irrelevant as Stihl have an oil that is a 50:1 oil and covers all ratios and mixtures
do not use any e-mix fuels as that destroys carby components

SOURCE: does this blower use 2 cycle mix

Yes it will use a fuel mixture of 40:1(3.2 oz of two cycle oil to 1 gallon of gas). Any fuel sitting over 30 days now is considered bad fuel. All the manufacturers schools this year and told us this. We are finding it to be true.
Good day.

SOURCE: wht is the gas to oil ratio for a homelite vac

Yours is not a current model and I did not find a manual. The following is an excerpt from a 26cc MightyLite Blower/Vac UT08550/UT08951 "Operator's Manual":
This product is powered by a 2-cycle engine and requires pre-mixing gasoline and 2-cycle lubricant. Pre-mix unleaded gasoline and 2-cycle engine lubricant in a clean 1 gallon container approved for gasoline.
Recommended fuel: This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline intended for automotive use.
Mix Homelite Premium Exact Mix lubricant with gasoline according to the instructions on the package. If Premium Exact Mix lubricant is not available, use a high quality synthetic 2-cycle engine lubricant, mixed at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US).
Do not use automotive lubricant or 2-cycle outboard lubricant.
NOTE: Premium Exact Mix fuel mix will stay fresh up to 30 days. DO NOT mix quantities larger than usable in a 30 day period.
PREMIUM EXACT MIX (50:1)
GasolineLubricant
1 gallon (US) 2.6 oz.
1 Liter 20 cc (20 ml)

1 quart fuel:3/4 ounces of oil = 1 Gallon fuel:3 ounces of oil or slightly less than 43:1. Not what a current manual recommends.

If properly adjusted your blower will operate fine on 50:1 regardless of what the manual reads. HTH

I have run my Homelite Vac Attack ii using gasoline only. Now it wont run.


You need to take to shop and have them check it out, more than likely the cost of Repairs will exceed the price of a new Blower, In other words Yes this Motor is NO GOOD . Sorry For the Bad News..
