    same happened twice over the years with mine-its 25 years old and I cut the plug off (as they are sealed) and put a new one on-solved the problem in both cases

The only thing that i can think of is that somwhere along the length of the cable it has either atiny nick or it has been pulled so that when you hold it in a certain way it works . It is most likly near the tool end rather than the plug end.Only way to find it if it is is trial and error turn machien on and bend cable till it cuts out

Why does my kawaski khs750b hedge cutter start easily but stop when tilted in a certain position

Answered your own question : generally the fuel supply to the motor is through a small hole at the base of the tank , at full you could probably tilt more aggressively and the line is getting fuel , however as the fuel runs down the fuel is on one side of the tank and is essentially not getting fed to the motor , you'll notice tilting it from horizontal to left you will get cut off , tilt to right it'll keep running depends on the locations of fuel line however , cars pre fuel pump days had similar problems

My Black&Deck 24" Hedge trimmer simply stop working. There is no action what so ever when I turn it on. Any suggestion? Do I need to locate and change the fuse? Thank you!

Check the black and white power wires to the motor. You will have to open the trimmer casing. I have 2, 18 inch B&D hedge trimmers and both of them stopped working due to wires coming loose at the motor. I re-soldered the wires to the motor and both trimmers work fine.

Hedge trimmer not cutting

Try getting the blades sharpened. Also have them checked to see if they are tight together, sort of like a pair of scissors. If the screws holding the blades together are sloppy the blades can't cut.

Trimer buing Question

Double position trimmers For extended reach while on the ground, a double position trimmer avoids you having to climb up high by allowing you to adjust the handle into a right angle to the blades for a level cut across the top of the hedge. Clippings collector As you trim your hedge, collect those stray cuttings in a clippings collector for a neater finish. Automatic cut out An important safety feature, this automatically switches off the hedge trimmer once the trigger is released. Hand guard For reassuring safety, a hand guard will protect you from the moving blades and from falling cuttings as you work.
