How to take apart the bump head to replace line. There are no chips as in the manual
how do i empty the oil tank? I tried just tipping the beast over to empty the oil out through the inflow but it looks the petrol flowed out of the the petrol tank into the oil tank. What am I doing wrong?
Whipper snipper will not turn over, unable to pull on cord at all. All good prior to being stored, oil clean, machine has less than 5 hrs use in total
My yard king whipper snipper starts up - but the motor does not engage the trimmer head.
It should only engage when you squeeze the throttle - like any other whipper snipper. My experience - at idle it either spins very slow (with no resistance) or not at all. I believe this is normal operation.
I need a new air filter housing and a hot and cold switch for yardking I heard briggs and stratton deal with them any of you guys know if that is correct cheers
It is by briggs and stratton, took months for someone at bunnings to figure this out for us because we needed a new head for it. We kept getting told the order for the piece had not been actioned despite many phone calls and visits. Searched the internet our selves and found no info. However asking to speak to a manager and asking for a replacement whipper snipper as the yard king one was essentially useless if we could not get parts, finally a few phone calls were made on our behalf and we were finally told briggs and stratton own yardking and they can get us the part needed. Still unhappy that for nearly 6 months of feeling like we were harassing bunnings we were not able to use it, and were then charged $40 for the part they finally got. No discount. Would have been nice to been given a discount or even an extra head as it definitely isnt made to last, its literally made to wear out and need replacing.
I want to secure a blade rather than string, there was no securing nut or washers provided . How do I obtain the correct nuts and washers to secure the blade ?
Silly question guys:
Happy with this trimmer in general but I struggle to prevent it from cutting out when I turn it on its side to do a nice edge. It absolutely has to do with the fuel because it starts to smoke before cutting out. I'm assuming because of the angle the engine gets flooded. Is this because of the design, am i doing something wrong, or are you just not meant to do that with straight trimmers in general?
Any feedback woukd be great! Cheers
Hi Guys, bought the yard king 4 stroke trimmer. Been fine, today after edging for about 40mins it cut out and then would only start and run on “cold” as soon as I move the throttle to hot it cut out... any ideas?
Started first pull going great for about 1 minute then a slight clunk stopped and wont start again feels like there's no compression, why?
