Honda grass cutter 435T starts well but when I squeeze on the trigger for more power it increases speed and suddenly looses its power or dies out. If I pull the wire again it start and after a few seconds loose power and stops. any ideas?
check the exhaust wire mesh, could be blocked by carbon
I've found mine must be creating vacuum in tank.When it starts to die loosen fuel cap for a second then tighten again.And it works fine till it makes another vacuum.Not sure how to remedy this as yet.
The carburettor needs a carburettor service kit run through it. Or you can buy a cheap carburettor on eBay, but not sure how long the diaphragm and pump will last.
I have a replacement line head unit but it’s much bigger than the old one.
How do you remove the line head, there is no Allen key like the older units.
From memory (been a while), there's a hole you stick a screwdriver or Allen key in to hold the shaft while you unscrew the head. It's usually buried and hidden in grass so you may need to clean things a bit to find it. :-)
how to grease the hub of Honda 435 T brush cutter?
Hi. To my knowledge the bearing and spindle head unit are factory greased and sealed.
My 35 has been used on my small acreage every weekend and for many years.
The head unit still spins smoothly and has no shaft play.
I would think I will wear the motor out first.
I am sure your Honda dealer could effect repairs when and if needed.
For me I will just park it up and buy another Honda.
They are so reliable.
While re assembling the nylon cutting head, I have placed the holder upside down and therefore when I insert the alan key into the cutting head, there is no slot for it to lock into.
How can I remove the cutting head and place the holder the correct way around?

Air filter, buy a new one off fee bay $4
Try putting compressed air through the fuel tank filter.
Sounds like the vent valve on the fuel filler cap is blocked.
Try starting it with the cap loose. If it runs smoothly you would need to air dust the cap or wash it in some petrol.
Managed to get hold of one of these awesome machine after submitting a winning bid at an auction. The choke has been a little sticky, but currently have cleaned a lot of the parts. I will be reassembling the machine parts over the next couple of days after parts have had a chance to dry out. Does anyone know how many gaskets are on this model as I ma considering replacing them.
Hi I was brush cutting this morning and for the first time ever my machine cut out. I went to restart it and the chord won't pull out to start? I'm gathering it must be caught up in the gearing somehow. Any ideas for a home fix? Cheers, Greg
I believe your motor might be cooked beyond repair. Most likely a lack of oil, or dirty oil. More expensive to fix a seized motor than to buy a new one. Sorry.
Why the engine has not enough power to supply when cutting grass, and the engine stop?
G'day Fraser, there could be any number of reasons for the engine losing power and stopping, but I always check the easiest (and cheapest) solutions first. In this case they would be the air cleaner and the fuel strainer, both of which you can service yourself (instructions are in the manual).
By the way, my wife complained of something similar one day, it turned out she had just left the choke on. I still give her a hard time about that.
I have had the same problem with my Honda brush cutter. Did all the maintenance jobs in the manual but although improved it never fixed it. It is always worse when cutting long or thick grass. It always seemed like it wasn't getting enough air but changing the air filter did not fix it. Loosening off the petrol cap fixed the problem but the cap then fell off with vibration. Yesterday I drilled a hole in the centre of the petrol cap and it has never worked better. I can rev it up as much as I like and it never cuts out. However not really knowing much about engines I wanted to ask if the air was being limited for a reason. What I have done now means that I can cut flat out but will it damage my engine?
Hi Annie. Had the same issue. That fuel cap is supposed to be vented but the tiny hole blocks up. The engine can't keep sucking fuel (especially when working hard) if there is a vacuum developing in the tank. So yes, you're on the right track. No issue with drilling a hole unless it is so big that junk gets in the fuel.
