Petro Grass Strimmers and Brushcutters FAQ's
How much 2-stroke do you put in a petrol strimmer?
The fuel mixture for a 2-stroke petrol strimmer is typically a combination of petrol (gasoline) and 2-stroke oil. The specific ratio of petrol to oil varies depending on the manufacturer's recommendations and the type of 2-stroke engine. Common ratios range from 25:1 to 50:1, meaning 25 parts petrol to 1 part oil or 50 parts petrol to 1 part oil. It is important to consult the strimmer's manual or the manufacturer's guidelines to determine the correct fuel mixture ratio for optimal performance and to avoid engine damage.
How do you prime a petrol strimmer?
To prime a petrol strimmer, follow these steps:
1. Locate the primer bulb on the strimmer's carburetor.
2. Press the primer bulb several times, typically 5 to 6 times, to draw fuel into the carburetor.
3. Pay attention to any fuel lines or arrows on the primer bulb for proper operation.
4. Avoid over-priming, as this can flood the engine.
5. Once primed, pull the starter cord or engage the starter mechanism to start the strimmer.
Proper priming ensures an adequate fuel supply for easy starting and smooth operation of the petrol strimmer.
How do you use a choke on a petrol strimmer?
To use the choke on a petrol strimmer, follow these steps:
1. Locate the choke lever or knob on the strimmer's carburetor.
2. When starting a cold engine, move the choke lever to the "Closed" or "On" position. This restricts the air supply and enriches the fuel mixture for easier starting.
3. Pull the starter cord or engage the starter mechanism to start the strimmer.
4. Once the engine starts and warms up, gradually move the choke lever to the "Open" or "Off" position. This allows more air into the carburetor for normal running. Adjust the choke as needed during operation based on the engine's performance and temperature.
