There is no electronic manual available for this model. It is listed as a Homelit UT5198. Here is a great parts breakdown list with diagrams and the prices to buy for every part on it.

    I plan to order one of these manuals and when I do I'm going to scan the darn thing and upload it somewhere for all to see. It's ridiculous that John Deere doesn't have an electronic manual online because this is a relatively popular model as well as a popular topic. Wag of the finger to John Deere on this one.

    I understand completely. I am going to go back to the Homelite site and input your model number. per Homelite. You guys have no idea how much time and research people as myself spend trying to do something so simple. I probably spent 30 minutes trying to help you. IF i do find it, I will be SURE to post on here, letting you know,

    If I can help you with a repair, please feel free to ask. Here is John Deere's way of dealing with consumers wanting an owners manual. Here they sell an OM (owners manual/printed version? and one on CD!) These prices are something else! Other manufacturers have FREE online manuals and maybe only charge for REPAIR manuals, something some consumers get confused about. Here is what I just found.

Describe your Poulan/Weed Eater No. Te475 952711797 17" Le Gas Trimmer/Edger Problem Need gas to oil ratio for poulan prolink pp335 weed eater

I found the manual for this model weed eater, according to the manual the mixture...
and I quote "This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline. Before operation, gasoline
must be mixed with a good quality synthetic 2-cycle air cooled engine oil designed to be
mixed at a Ratio of 40:1 ...."
and I quote once more from the manual "Helpful Tip. To obtain
correct oil mix ration, pour 3.2 ounces of 2 cycle synthetic oil into one gallon of fresh gas."

Hope that helps,
If you like I can send the manual via email if you need it.

:) happy weed thrashing
