I'll see where in the world they are getting $215 & let you guys know. If It's $120 or less I'll do it, if not new trimmer it is.

Dude,
Being in the lawn business your going to have to learn to fix some things yourself. It's two screws, two fuel lines and a couple of gaskets. What do you do if something breaks halfway through the day? Do u take it to the dealer and wait three days to get it back, and pay an arm and a leg? You can't run a business like that!!! I'm not being rude, if you can drive a truck and operate lawn equipment, then you can swap out a carb. I get people not wanting to work on hydro systems, but all the simple maintenance stuff can be done by you and save yourself alot of time and money. It's like putting Legos together.

I'm 15 & I run my business. I've never done anything like that before so that why I took it to the dealer. Ill try to find out how to do it myself & just get the parts from the dealer.

Well I have rebuilt outboards and can rebuild any two stroke I want from top to bottom... But when I take something to my dealer it's not three days and its not very expensive.... I profit more buy staying busy do lawn and Landscape work than working on a weedeater... And I have plenty of backup equipment

I think you could definitly find a carb kit for that carb for cheap. You shouldn't need a whole new carb. Try and find a carb kit, should be a couple gaskets, needle, o-rings, etc. I've paid anywhere from $20-$25 for carb kits from my dealer. The only way to learn is to take it apart, take your time and pics if you have to so ya remember how to put it back together. I'm sure you can get lots of help from us too!

You also have the benefit of youtube to help with repairs also. Once repaired, that RedMax model is a great trimmer.
