14″ Grass Hog Xp Trimmer/Edger

Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
Hi, W/D here.

Mine falls off all the time, but this helps: Bend the prongs out a bit. If you have the molded in notches for your extention cord (molded into the handle) wedge your cord in the notch, but leave about 12″ beyond that. Then, tie the end of the cord off to the handle, and then plug it in. By doing this, and bending the prongs on the trimmer just a bit, you will wind up with your cord firmly anchored, and firmly attached electrically. It’s a pretty good trivk. You may have to do it again the next time you use it, but, now you know how to do it! WVMike, who also answered your question is correct in that the grounding lug doesn’t have to be used with your trimmer. It is designed as a “double insulated” tool, so the ground isn’t required.

Best regards, –W/D–

Lawn mower cranck but wont start…
ANSWER : Since you already checked for spark and air I would drain all the fuel out of it and check that fuel for water. Over time some lawn mowers end up with contaminated fuel. You can see the water sitting on the bottom of the fuel if you let it stand for a bit in a small plastic bowl.

Be sure to empty and dry out you fuel can as well. Especially if the mower stopped running right after a refuel. Which is a good sign your gas can is contaminated too.

I have trouble starting a toro walk behind mower
ANSWER : All, I thought my carb was shot, so I replaced it. Still, start but no run (and had to use starting fluid). THEN!!! I noticed the spring to the “rev limiter” (just below and towards rear of carb) was not “tight”. The stupid bracket that holds the end of that spring had been bent down ~1/16″ and that caused all this heartache. CHECK YOUR REV LIMITER!!!
