How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
The CS26 requires regular unleaded fuel with an octane rating of 87 or more. It can`t operate with blended fuels or fuels with additives, such as ethanol. The mixing specifications are 1 gallon of gasoline to 2.6 ounces of engine oil.
The air filter may be clogged. If the air filter is clogged, the engine will get too much fuel and not enough air. As a result, the engine may not start. If the air filter is clogged, replace it.
That first number is the amount of fuel, the second part the two stroke oil. Most power tools work on a ratio of 25/1, so that means you need to mix 25 parts fuel to 1 part two stroke oil. Once done so you then pour that mix into the fuel tank of the unit.
For the best performance from your small engine, pick up Ryobi`s 2.2oz 4 Cycle engine oil. This 20W-50-oil is formulated for superior engine performance and protection. For the life of your engine, trust Ryobi 4 Cycle oil.
The most common problem with a string trimmer is that the unit runs out of string. The string may also be twisted or loose on the spool. The cutting head may be dirty or the head outlet guide may be bent. An electric trimmer`s power cord, switch, or motor may fail.
The most common problem with a strimmer not starting is that there`s a problem with the fuel mix. Double check that you`ve used 40 parts fresh unleaded petrol to 1 part 2-stroke oil (40:1). Check the petrol you`ve used isn`t stale.
Only use unleaded gasoline containing up to 10% ethanol.
Mix at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US). NOTE: Do not use automotive lubricant or 2-cycle outboard motor lubricant.
Most STIHL gasoline-powered equipment runs on a 50:1 mixture of gasoline and 2-cycle engine oil.

How do I loosen the blade nut on my Ryobi 4 cycle edger? Which way does it turn??
Try heating the nut slightly with a gas torch and continue to turn counter clockwise as the manual suggests to undo.
The heat will expand the nut slightly making it easier to undo, don’t overheat the nut as this could damage it.
check their isn’t any locking washers holding the nut in place, bend the washer out of the locking position if this is the case.
Try using a larger spanner or extend your handle to give you maximum leverag
Lost manuel Can’t start my Ryobi C530 gas trimmer
Trun the on/off switch on,prime it with the bulb 3-6 times choke it , pull the cord 1 or2 times then take the choke off and pull a few times till it starts if it doesnt start you have problems.
Trimmer head won’t turn
If you didn’t recently take it apart, then it sounds like you have broken the drive shaft in the neck of the trimmer. You can probably find this at an outdoor power and equipment type of store.Jim
Ryobi 700r gas trimmer, replace old fuel lines
Can not get spool head apart to change line, tried pump pliers, pipe wrench, won’t unscrew!!
If you are sure that it screws on it may be a reverse threaded unit..
When in operation the Ryobi S430 string trimmer leaks oil continuously. How can I fix this problem?
Ryobi told me the unit can’t have the s430 trimmer bottom end raised higher than the engine at any time, or it will leak. Apparently they released a product to compete with other companies for cheap 4 cycle trimmers without much care for the end user.
Manual I have a Poulon Weed Eater Model FLSST25 (featherlite 17 inch 2 cycle gas powered straight shaft string trimmer and I need a manual for it……..what is the gas to oil ration?
