    I'm new to the site and just getting familiar with everything. I have an issue with a Homelite SX-135 Bandit trimmer that I've had for a couple of years now. It's never run very well before, always been hard to start, but I got it fired up today and it was like a whole 'nother machine. In fact, it was running TOO well - it seemed to be running way over normal speed. I don't know the rated RPM and have no idea how to adjust the governor on this thing (I mostly work on Cub Cadet garden tractors, not very familiar with trimmers), but I need to figure out how to slow it down so it doesn't self-destruct. Any suggestions?
