Shindaiwa 22t whipper snipper.

published

Purchased a shindaiwaiwa 22t line trimmer approx 14 yrs ago. Best damn thing I've ever purchased for the garden tool collection. Ever reliable, starts with ease, cuts hard, goes hard. On my second quick release head. Bit fiddly to feed line on but I've got 8 fingers and 2 thumbs, no problem. 1 x service. 1x spark arrestor pulled out of exhaust about 7 yrs ago. 3 x spark plugs and yes i bought it for a large suburban block but has done some heavy, long hours on bigger jobs and has been a tried and tested machine to be a true performer for me. Pay the extra, look after it. Well done SHINDAIWA for an excellent machine.

Basically a great machine with some flaws

Totally frustrating

published

Owner's manual is short on information, eg how much line spool takes, what thickness, how to remove head, how to replace head.
Tearing hair out trying to get head off then again on. Wasting hours of time trying to sort it out.
small spool capacity
Not recommended for the average back yard gardener.

Possibly the best power tool I've ever used in my life

published

I've done extensive research before buying this. I bought this over Makita DUR181Z due to concerns that cordless trimmer may not have enough power and I don't regret it one bit. This is so easy to start, cuts through thick long grass like it's nothing. It's not overly heavy either so I didn't feel uncomfortable after using it for 2 hours straight.
Forget other cheap trimmers. This is the real deal and with 5 year warranty, you can't go wrong. The only criticism I can make is the instruction manual which is very lacking. It doesn't even explain how to replace the lines.

Well worth the money

published

Great trimmer,starts on the second pull every time even after being stored for a couple of months,the speed feed for the line is also a god send so easy and fast to fill it up,no more taking the head apart and messing around with springs that fly off and get lost.
The speed feed and build quality Japanese built,need I say more
It is pricey for a home unit but that said,I've spent more on cheap ones over the years,you will appreciate the quality long after the price is forgotten

What you have written is not a question but I'll take it as a question to ask about oil /fuel ratio.

If that is the question, the answer is 50:1
Normally a great unit,but it can suffer fuel troubles. Not a good idea to premix 5 litres of 2 stroke just for the trimmer alone..In my area the humidity gets to the fuel if stored too long.

The Shindaiwa tank is about .5 litre and the carby can be affected by silt in the fuel-It has be kept very clean.

Try fresh fuel and mix ups in 1 litre increments 20 cc. 2 stroke oil to 1 litre (1000cc) of unleaded fuel.
