Question about Garden

Open Question

Hi, I have a Victa Tornado Trimmer - 26cc It is brand new and won't start! I have assembled it according to the instruction manual and there is no problem regarding the assembly. I have mixed the fuel correctly at a ratio of 25:1, also according to manufacturers instruction and there is just no response when pulling the start cord! I don't know much about trimmers to start with, but this seems like a problem with the unit? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jason

SOURCE: What is the correct ratio for fuel mix for a ECHO

A 50:1 ratio with 89 Octane fuel can be used in all ECHO 2-stroke equipment, provided the oil is ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FC/FD certified. ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FC/FD oil must be used with a mid-grade (89 octane) or premium gasoline in all 1997 and newer engines.
A 50:1 Ratio = 1 US Gal. 89 Octane + 2.6 fl. oz. ECHO POWER BLEND OIL
Echo Power Blend Universal 2-Stroke Oil can be used in all of our 2-cycle air-cooled equipment ever made. You may also use this oil in any other brand of 2-cycle air cooled equipment, but it should always be mixed at the 50:1 ratio whether or not it was a 32:1 or 16:1 etc. machine. This oil is the highest quality 2-cycle oil on the market today. There is no need to have more than 1 tank of fuel for your 2-cycle equipment any more.
Use only fresh gasoline with a minimum octane rating of 89 through 93 (mid-grade to premium) at all times. The gasoline suppliers blend mid-grade and premium gasoline with greater amounts of detergents and anti-oxidizing additives to keep the engines clean. Lack of these detergents and additives in a 2-stroke engine will cause a heavy build-up of varnish and gum deposits on the piston surface and ring grooves. Regular unleaded 87 octane or lower gasoline may not contain enough of the detergent additives that are needed in a 2-stroke engine to keep varnish, gum, and tar deposits from forming. Use of 87 octane fuel may shorten the life of the engine.

ALL TWO-STROKE OILS ARE NOT EQUAL!
ECHO POWER BLEND OIL, is manufactured exclusively for ECHO, Inc. and meets the (ISO) International Standards Organizations highest performance rating of ISO-L-EGD for Air Cooled 2 Stroke oils and is JASO M345 FC/FD REGISTERED. Years of research and testing have resulted in an oil that is fully compatible with fuels containing 10% ethanol and can be used in all air - cooled, outdoor power equipment 2-Stroke engines at 50:1 ratio. ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FC/FD rated oils must be used with a mid-grade (89 octane) or premium gasoline in all 1997 and newer engines. Always look for the JASO M345 FC/FD square logo and registration number to ensure you are using the highest quality 2-stroke oil for your ECHO product.
ECHO POWER BLEND OIL is made for high revving, (7,000 RPM and up) air-cooled 2-stroke engines that are E.P.A. and C.A.R.B. emissions certified. Make sure the oil has a EGD and FC/FD certification. Oils that meet ISO, EGA/EGB/EGC and JASO FA and FB are of lesser quality, designed for applications such as water-cooled boat engines, low RPM lawnmower engines, or snowmobile engines and should not be used in ECHO Engines. Prior to 1997, oils were not manufactured to these higher standards. Some or most of the oils were simply 30 or 40 weight 4-stroke engine oil with minimum amounts of additives. ECHO POWER BLEND OIL is the highest quality 2-Stroke oil available and will provide maximum protection against engine wear and carbon buildup.

SOURCE: Troy built 27cc string trimmer Model TB21 EC. What

4 cycle engines do not run on mixed fuel. Run on straight fuel. They have a spot to put oil in just like a lawn mover, and should be changed regularly. @ stroke engines run on mixed fuel.

Type of fuel for icon grass trimmer


check if you can download this instruction manual for a 26cc Icon grass trimmer. You have not provided the model number of your trimmer but generally it should be similar to this.
It requires 40:1 fuel to oil ration.
Do not worry if you cannot load this manual as I have already given the information.

Winder not going back in


Hi pete are you talking about the starter cord or the cutting cord. If it's the starter try and put some lube spray where the spring for the starter is and it should free up. If it's the cutting cord then you have wound it on wrong or not tight enough. Start it again and if this doesn't help let me know via the reply section

I need to check the fuel filter on my victa tornado whipper snipper (2 stroke) but don't know where it is! I'd like a diagram, it's no use talking about 'fuel manifolds' or whatever...


The fuel filter is in the gas tank on the big fuel line. You can use a piece of wire with a small hook to pull the line and filter to the tank opening. These filters are available from small engine repair shops.

I have a Victa Tornado Plus trimmer and have starting problems. It is relatively new and if you cannot fix it I will return it to the supplier. However, if it is me then... I have followed the...


To be honest, the unit sounds sounds like it only needs a minor carburetor adjustment. When these fuel systems are installed and the machines shipped to the dealers, sometimes small things are overlooked. In this case, your machine wasn't "set up" for the climate it is now being operated in. Elevation of the land can affect the way these machines operate also. I know your country is mountainous and the Victa is an Austrailian brand. I would return it to the dealer for warranty service under the premise of "difficult to start."

Homelite trimmer, gas, string - y is the string wrapping itself around the head of the trimmer?


The line on my new 26cc Homelite would also feed out by itself. That started me thinking the line was wound backwards. I wrapped the line in the opposite direction as was shown on the bump feed reel and now the dang thing works although the bump feed needs to be "bumped" pretty hard to work. Is it possible that the reel was manufactured with the (string direction) arrows pointing the wrong direction? The new 26cc unit is also underpowered compared to my older 25cc trimmer.
