SOURCE: Correct gas to oil ratio for Homelite Mighty String Trimmer Model

most trimmers are 50:1. or 40:1. i would use synthetic 2 cycle oil and use the 50:1 ratio. i know guys with trimmers that require 50:1, and they use synthetic at 80:1 with no problems for years. they say the engine runs cleaner. i am a part-time lawn care operator.

This is for a duel line trimmer. I hope this will help.

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position. Put cap on and GO CRAZY!

Have a 2005 homelite generator that I can not start. Have oil that was in before. Added gas. Flipped switch and hit the choke. Pulled chord and nothing.


Check the following:

1. The fuel - if old fuel was left in, it may be contaminated. Use fresh fuel. If the unit isn't used regularly, add the gas additive "Stabil" before storing the generator.

2. Check the air filter - clean or replace as necessary

3. Check the spark plug for fouling, gap, etc.

4. Make sure the carburetor is tight to the manifold and engine.

5. Make sure to start the unit with no loads connected.

6. Makes ure there is enough oil and the correct type in the engine - do not overfill.

Double spool on Weed Wacker


This isn't a solution to the problem. However, I think you should talk to someone at Home Depot or Lowes or wherever you bought the model, and see if the string is in there correctly; if it is, then u'r weed wacker must have some other mechanical problem. Sometimes it is just best to buy a new one. The more expensive models are the best.
