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 clutch engages the clutch pads to spin the trimmer head. If the clutch assembly is defective, the clutch will not disengage the clutch pads, and the trimmer head will continue to spin, even at low speeds. If the clutch is defective, replace it. (Note: some string trimmers do not have a clutch.
Spin Direction

Just as a circular saw needs to eject sawdust as it works, a trimmer needs to eject debris from its cut path. If your trimmer spins counter clockwise, it ejects material from the left side of the tool and cuts best with the right side.

Worn clutch – Since the string trimmer clutch engages with one or more drive shafts attached to the trimmer head to rotate the head when the throttle trigger is depressed, a worn-out clutch may prevent the trimmer head from spinning. A new clutch assembly is relatively inexpensive and easy to install.
SGS strimmers rotate clockwise, so the grass is ejected to the right side of the tool, meaning the left of your tool is best cutting edge. If you`re cutting along an edge the debris needs to be ejected away from where you`re cutting.
Most string trimmers use a flexible drive shaft inside the shaft housing even if the shaft is straight. These flex shafts can start to vibrate when they wear out, or when they aren`t properly lubricated. Vibration can also occur when the connection between the flex shaft and the trimmer head is loose or worn.
Curved shaft string trimmers are easy to use in tight spaces and yards with plenty of fixtures. Their low weight not only makes them more comfortable to carry but also places them at a lower price point.
A straight shaft trimmer with a solid steel driveshaft has a more durable construction than any trimmer with a plastic drive cable. It can use heavier-grade replacement string as well as optional cutting blade attachments in place of the string.
When your trimmer starts and runs on choke, it could be because the check valve in the gas cap is clogged. Start the trimmer and gently unscrew the gas cap halfway off. Turn the choke off and assess. If the engine is still running, that means the gas cap may be the culprit.
A grass trimmer is used to trim lawn edges where a mower can`t reach. A trimmer with a curved shaft is often used for easy trimming around lawns and flowerbeds. Machines with straight shafts and bevel gears are designed for more demanding jobs and they make it easier to reach under hedges, bushes and similar places.
What is a Trimmer Angle? A Trimmer Angle is a steel fabrication used to `trim` around openings in floors. The angle provides a bearing surface for building elements (e.g. beams) and transmits the load to supports at either end of the trimmer.
A loose or disconnected air hose or vacuum hose can cause quite a bit of violent shaking and vibration in your car`s engine. To correct the problem, simply look for any loose or disconnected hoses and reattach them and replace them as needed.
Trimmers Stopped working

If your trimmer won`t turn on, especially if it has not been used recently, you may simply have a drained battery. Plug your trimmer into your charger and see if anything happens. Ideally your trimmer will recognize it has been connected to a power source and charge its battery.

The carburetor might be clogged. A clogged carburetor is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the string trimmer for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance.
It is wise to always hang a string trimmer in a vertical position instead of storing it in a horizontal position. Not only does vertically store this tool saves a lot of wasted space, but it also keeps the delicate engine components from getting damaged.
Clogged air filters can cause RPMs to surge up and down. Simply remove the air filter cover by the tabs or screws that hold it in place and replace. This should regularly be done as preventative maintenance. The fuel filter keeps dirt from entering the carburetor.
