Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer

4 Answers

I have the Morrison BC 260B S2 Weed Trimmer but I don't have any instrucions for its use. I need to know what the mix of 2-Stroke petrol is and its general operation. This is not mine and the owner doesn't have any documentation. Even simply stuff like how to start it. i was hoping to find some documentation I could download.

I have one of these. The mix is 25 to 1. Before starting use the primer bulb to get fuel through; it says to turn the choke to limit the flow, but I've found mine starts easier with the choke open. To start, flick to on/start position, hold the (safety switch?) flush with the spine, and give it a yank.

I have been told these are very good all round weed eaters.I have been told by my neighbour that owns a morrison weedeater that the mix is 25-1. As for starting procedures put the choke on once it fires take it off and pull it till it goes

The Manual says 30:1 fuel mix.

To start:

- Place on firm, flat surface. Check fuel and fuel cap.
- When starting cold use a bit of choke (does seem to start either without any choke)
- Slide ignition switch away from stop position
- hold down the safety and throttle levers and press the starter button (the one that locks the two others from moving)
- Grip firmly and yank on the starter rope.

That's a little abridged but basically what the book says. Now, has anyone replaced the nylon spool? The manual doesn't make much sense in that area...

I am unfamiliar with this "Kiwi" brand, but that is OK. You can't go wrong with a 40:1 (3.2 ounce/ US gallon) mix. Use synthetic and add gas stabilizer to the mix if possible. Not much info on these machines. Please vote on this solution.

I have a Ryobi RPT3000 trimmer. Firstly how do I top up engine oil? And then how do I restring it?


The engine on that trimmer will be a 2 stroke 30cc engine not a 4 stroke.
"Two Stroke Oil" is added to the fuel for a 2 stroke fuel mix in accordance with the proportions specified by Ryobi for that engine. The required petrol/oil mix may be printed on the top of the fuel cap. No other oil is used in a 2 stroke engine.

There are a number of videos on Youtube people have uploaded which will show you how to replace the pull cord on a trimmer.

What kind of oil do i use to mix with gas for my Poulan gas trimmer. Can i use WD30 motor oil or does it have to specifically say its for 2stroke engines? the ratio on the trimmer says 40:1 so i assume...


DO NOT USE MOTOR OIL!!!

There is a special 2-stroke engine oil mix that you can purchase at various stores that have outdoor equipment or you can also find mix at Walmart. There are instructions for proper mixing on the bottle.

Remember not to put 2-stroke mixed fuel in your lawn mower unless it is also 2-stroke (rare). And the converse is also true, do not put your 4-stroke lawn mower fuel in your 2-stroke weed eater.

If this is really helpful, please rate.

Need to know fuel mix for mcCulloch gladiator 550 petrol hedge trimmer


I don't know the age of this machine, but more and more of the newer units are using a 50:1 mix to satisfy the newest EPA emissions regulations. I suggest using a synthetic or synthetic blend of 2 stroke oil. ....the big box stores sell the oil...Echo one of the best. I would use synthetic and mix it 40:1. Here is a fuel mix chart to show you how many ounces of oil in a gallon of gas that is. If you make a 1/2 gallon batch of fuel mix, just use half of the listed oil amount for the mix.

http://support.mtdproducts.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/347/~/two-cycle-engine-fuel%3Aoil-mixture-chart

40:1 is 3.2 ounces of oil in a gallon of gas...or 1.6 ounces of oil in a half-gallon of gas

Need gas misture ratio for trimmer SRM2501


pauly46 here
'
the ratio you should use is 50:1

that is 20 mils of 2 stroke oil for every 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix

so if you want to make 2 litre mix use 40 mils of 2 stroke oil , then add 2 litres of petrol only and give good shake

note use good quality 2 stroke oil , such as sthil or husqvarna oil from your outdoor power shop


but if using general 2 stroke oil from a garage use 40 mils of oil for every 1 litre that you mix
this ratio is 25:1 this mix is on the richer side

cheers hope this helps

Could you please let me know. 1] Can I use E10 fuel in my new RLT 30 CET 30cc trimmer that I have just purchased and am yet to start up? 2] Is 50 to 1 50mm of oil to one litre of petrol?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

First off the engine is designed to operate on unleaded fuel. The manufacturer makes no statements at all about E-10 Fuel. I will tell you from experience that you can use E-10 Fuel but.... should you ever have a warranty claim make sure the entire fuel system is 100% unleaded pre-mixed fuel. Your not going to hurt the unit using E-10 fuel as long as you maintain the proper fuel-oil mixtures. If anything a splash more of 2 stroke oil as in 22 mm / liter vs 20 mm. Or (+) 8 mm per gal.

Manufacturers statemenrts and recommended fuel mixtures below:

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

n This product is powered by a 2-stroke engine and

requires pre-mixed petrol and 2-stroke lubricant . Premix

unleaded petrol and 2-stroke engine lubricant in

a clean container approved for petrol.

n This engine is certified to operate on unleaded petrol

intended for automotive use with an octane rating
of 87 ([R + M] / 2) or higher.

1 Litre + 2 0 ml =

2 Litres + 4 0 ml =

3 Litres + 60 ml = 50:1 (2%)

4 Litres + 80 ml =
5 Litres + 100 ml =

I have a homelite f2020 series petrol trimmer i would like to know the petrol and oil ratio mixture please


I use 50:1 with Sthil 2-stroke oil in ALL my 2-stroke equipment. This ratio does not smoke at all, and does not foul plugs.

Never had a problem yet. At this mix ratio, you can also use it in 4-stroke engines, which means you only need 1 fuel can on site. Also eliminates the possibility of using the wrong can to fill the trimmer.

Confused a little


A 4 stroke motor does NOT have Oil in the Fuel. There is NO fuel mixture. Just use regular gas. The only place you need oil is in the sump, and regular 20/30 motor oil will be fine.This only needs to be replaced when low on dipstick in crankcase.
