Great trimmer- terrible parts supply


I have the Hyundai version which is exactly the same except colour. I cannot fault the tough little machine as it is so versatile and makes slashing our 1.3 hectare block a breeze. Parts are a different story. I need a replacement skid head on the trimmer assembly. I cannot obtain one in Australia until the importers decide they have enough bits to fill up their Seatainer. So now the search is on in the U.S. Very poor back up.

two foot grass with ease


i work on farms all over the place .only in the last three months .i have needed to cut and trim grass that i can not get tractor to. normal mower just will not cut . i did a lot of looking to find parklanders pet 51 y field trimmer and im glade i did . the first day was two foot high grass on a slope and it ate it not a problem light to push very quiet and leaves a fantastic finish the next time i used it was around dams grass not as tall once again ate it
even mowe my yard at home with it .
the 900 mil tank gives about 50 mins of work
the four mm cord depending on the grass will last that if not longer in short grass and no steel post
starts first pull every time
easy to oil change

Questions & Answers



Hi, I recently purchased a PET - 51 y TRIMMER it seems to be working fine but the rev is going up and down, is that normal or is it supposed to hold a constant rev? Thanks in advanced.

Mine is holding a constant rev and that's the way it's supposed to be. It sounds like with your problem you want to check your carburetor, it might just need to be cleaned out. This is a common problem, not just in your strimmer, it happened to my victa mower too. Good luck


Check you engine for oil over fill it as engine has it no bearings and according to the importer does not require any see my post as my one failed with very little use. sorry I suspect engine is crap
