Hi Lorraine,

You can buy it from Bunnings. The best one is the model GT222-ES which has the bent shaft. They are easier to use than the straight shaft models. They have increased in price to $339 probably due to COVID.

Buy a 5 litre jerry can at any petrol station and then buy the 250ml bottle of oil. Put the entire oil contents into the jerry can then fill up with petrol.

Thanks Paul.
Yes I noticed that Bunnings sells a model ref. GT 222 ES
I was wondering if it is the same as the model GT 22 GES reviewed here.
It might be a newer version, hence the similarity between the product names and their look but I would like to be sure. Anyone?
Thanks
Alex

How to replace the fuel primer bulb

1 answer
Reviewbloke1989
Reviewbloke1989

You.ll need to buy in your local mower shop to suit the primer bulb on the carburator where the fuel pump is located and there will be a prime plate on top and it's a walbro type there 4x screws and if it's a Zama type you're only going going to unscrew 2x on it and a flat head phillips and a flat head will work just make sure it's a good size of screwdriver

I don't know as I haven't needed to ask but as I have a blade cutter attachment for hardy/woody weeds etc I don't see why you would not be able to.

Kevin Lasked

Can you purchase a replacement cutting attachment for this product? If so, where from? The knob on the spool (bump feed) wore through and the spring is lost. The motor and all else is fine and the trimmer light and easy to use

Hello Kevin, I would assume any mower spares business should be able to help you with a replacement part. If you live in Adelaide, Salisbury Mowers are extremely helpful with regards to parts and spares.
