Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a oleo mac hc 260 xp hedgecutter. Earlier this year I had to replace the ignition coil but since then the machine starts and runs ok but it doesn't seem to get up to full speed and the blades don't cut like they used to. They stop easily on even small branches. Have had it for 4 years - no problem before

Since the machine runs, I'm assuming the carburator and the rest of the fuel system is in good order. So, the blades may need oiling. Give 'em a shot of WD-40 or something similiar. If that doesn't do it, be sure the blades are not bent or cracked or otherwise getting in each other's way. Last check: there should be a gear box--usually on the underside of such units--for the blades' driving mechanism. If there isn't a greasepoint or another type of lubrication point, open up the gearbox and see if the gears are still meshing correctly and are well lubricated.

Testimonial: "Thanks - the blades do move but only at 75% power so I don't think they're bent - I will check the gearbox."

Tahoe not getting fire to plugs, when I try to crank it there is an odor of gas and no start! Crank sensor,evap purge valve solenoid, fuel pump and knock sensors have all been replaced.

Things to check:
  1. Timing chain or timing belt (depending on which engine you have);
  2. Coil pack or ignition coil (depending on which engine and year);
  3. Rotor and distributor cap (if your Tahoe is an earlier model);
  4. ECU (especially if you jump-started the car before the issue began);

OLEO MAC TRACTOR WITH KAWASAKI 15HP ENGINE. Cuts out/stalls when ignition switch is turned to Normal, but OK when turned to Caution Reverse Cutting. Is there a difference in the switch positions?

this is nothing to do with what the other lot have said. i work at a lawnmower shop and to me it sounds lik ur neutral posistion sensor. it seems like it is registering it in reverse all the time, hence it only works when u put it to reverse cutting mode. if you want, i am not too far away from you. we are the other side of preston in burscough. give me a ring on 01704 894457.

Dear Sir,
As you said coil is getting currant but not sparking further to spark plug , then check few things.

1 Check the connector is proper fitted on ignition coil.

2. No lose connection with pin of connector or pin should not be lose.

3. All pins are clean of connector and no rust is there.

4. Check High Tension cable (cablle black couler which run from ignition coil to spark plug) if found ok then try with new cable if it wont start.

5. It is problem with ignition coil replace it problem will solve.

Problem can solve at any step from 1 to 5 i did arrange all steps by easy to check and less expanses, final step will more expansive than earlier step.if any issue let me know. thanks
