Question about Homelite Factory Reconditioned 26cc Gas-Powered MightyLite Hedge Trimmer
Two stroke gas equipment needs a good long warm up. The heat is part of the deal. Set the choke on full chioke. Prime the bulb till you see the bulb is full. Turn the kill switch if you have one to "on" and fire it up. let it run at idle as long as it will or for a minute on this choke setting. If it dies restart and let warm up. When it is running ok but a little bit boggy then move the choke to open or half and give it some gas. If it responds then go to full open and crank it up a few revs. If it bogs or dies your unit will need service. The diaphragms in the carb are replaces as a kit and run about $6- 10. They are also easy to do if you can read and hold a screw driver. These go bad from fuel hardening every 14 months or so along with the primer bulb and hoses. Get all of this online from parts stores. Whole repair makes it like new forabout $15.00 or let someone do it for you for about $ 50.00.
