    I have a Redmax Trimmer that I bought brand new a year and a half ago. Last season it just locked up. The pull cord won't even come out. What's wrong with this trimmer? It's not that old. I've always used the same premium 2 cycle oil with the correct mix. Any ideas on what to do?

    I bought a redmax BCZ26 last season, and it runs and starts great all the time, I say there is something major wrong with yours, probably a defect in manufactuaring? It should still be under warranty? Take it to the dealer quickly though! Do you mean the piston itself is locked up, and will not move up or down? For that to happpen that quickly is pretty strange? IF you find out what the problem is, please post it so we all know. Good luck man!
