Needs far better dealership back up and spare parts support
Purchased in Jan 2017 the T226 ran flawlessly for 18 months until May of 2018. It was taken to a local Shindaiwa dealer from whom it was purchased, where a kit of parts was fitted and allegedly tested. It was received back on May 29th.
I did not use for a day or two after it was "repaired".When I did try to start it the unit would not rev, only idle.
I returned it to the dealer to get them to complete the job they were paid to do. I heard nothing for a week and when I went there they said they had claimed warranty on a part-I understand it w...
Purchased in January 2017 for $399.00.
Ok when it works
Mine has gone in the bin after 5 years.
The first 4 years of service was great and the Shindaiwa spool feed system is the best I've seen.
The problem was the reliability of the petrol engine after 4 years. The final year was terrible...it would only start on occasion.
I striped down the carb, new plug, fresh fuel...nothing...took it to the shop and it stated first time for him.

Questions & Answers
Fuel mix fit 5 litres of unleaded petroleum
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.
