The first thing to do is to ensure that the battery is fully charged. If after charging the battery you are still experiencing the problem, then it may indicate a fault with either the battery or charger. The defective item will need to be replaced.
With a severed cord, your hedge trimmer is virtually worthless. With a small amount of money and a little ingenuity, however, you can repair the cord and have the trimmer running. If the cord left attached to the trimmer is long enough to be useable, then you simply can add a new plug to its end.
Over time, the spark arrestor can become clogged with soot. If the spark arrestor is clogged, the engine may stall or run roughly. To unclog the spark arrestor, remove it and clean it with a wire brush. You may also replace the spark arrestor.
It is safe to say that your average cordless hedge trimmer will last for about 40 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how hard you are working.
While using your Hedge Trimmer, it`s common for debris and sap to become lodged in the cutting blades. This can cause the blades to bind, making trimming more difficult, and even cause the engine to overheat.

My mower blades disengage when operating.
Not sure of your question, but if you mean, they start when you flip the switch and then disengage but the switch stays up.. you need to check two things. (1) The out put of your alternator, read the battery with a volt meter before you start it, then start up the engine and read the voltage again should be a higher reading with the engine running. 12.4 vdc with the engine off – 13.7 vdc with it running. (just an example). Next will be your seat switch.There is a switch under the seat if you are not sitting in the seat the blades should turn off. so the switch could be out of its socket, or broken.

Need to replace fuel lines on my Troy Bilt gas hedge trimmer. Where can I get replacement fuel lines… or better yet… what size are the lines and where can I buy a few feet of the lines. Note: I have reviewed the parts assembly and it would seem to indicate I have to replace the entire handle assembly (Part #1) instead of just buying replacement hose(s). Any help to resolve my issue would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance
Replacement fuel lines should be readily available at your local lawnmower repair shop. Your TroyBilt hedger uses fuel line that is 3/32″ (2.4mm) interior dimension, 3/16″ (4.8mm) outside dimension, with a 3/64″ (1.2mm) wall dimension.
Most manufacturers don’t offer replacement line, only fuel tank assemblies. Find your local shop, and try to get the TYGON brand…it is yellow. Tygon lasts the longest. You should be able to buy it by the foot for less than $2 per foot. You will need 2 feet of hose to replace both lines.
Make sure to clean the in-tank filter when replacing hoses.
Engine kills when engaging mower or clutch – Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor – CA Model
There is a switch under your seat that senses if there is someone in the seat…that switch is bad and so it thinks that you are not in the seat and shuts down the motor…
find the switch, which will be underneath the seat and replace it….
Do not bypass it as it is a safety feature…

Broken pullcord the pull cord on my cub cadet push mowersnaped and broken and we put it back in and know it wont wind back in
Yeah I got the same problem. My pull cord broke in the first season. On my own once the plastic cover is removed, 4 phillips screws, the cord housing is secured by 3 10mm nuts. Remove them and lift out the housing. On my own unit the spring had also slipped out of the mount on the shaft securing the assembly (another 10mm socket nut will loosen that) and I had to resecure that first, then wind it up before making the knot.. I used a Briggs and Stratton cord from another (truly dead) mower and have had no problems since then.
