Basically a great machine with some flaws
The auto feed spool like any other is prone to damage. The instruction book is poor on information such as length of cable on the spool and even the diameter required. Auto feeding spools ail sooner than later and are costly to replace.
I had a aftermarket aluminium bolt on unit - from an old line trimmer-that takes heavy duty cut to length line.
This suits me far better than farting around trying to load the auto spool in terms of time and fiddling around, plus the fact that the alloy spool is nearly indestructible.
The 22T unit is q...uiet, powerful and with little vibration. Maintenance is -let it cool and remove loose grass with the hose and a brush and let dry. Filter cleaning is easy-undo a thumbscrew - no tool required. I saw a few pro lawn cutters sporting this brand and asked one of them about them.The guy highly recommended them- so that was worth noting.
Well worth the money
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
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.
