I hate to say it but I have a homelite and I belive a few do here also. It still starts on one or 2 pulls. Run it as a back up and at least one day a week during season to keep it movin. I have had it for probably 8 years. I now have commercial trimmers and would recomend them due to the extra power.Originally posted by ECM LAWN
It's a homelite... thats your first problem. I'm not sure what it is, maybe someone else can help here. BTW, welcome to the site!
Ditto that. I bought one in 95 because I was in a pinch after someone helped themselves to my Echos in the back of my truck. That Homelite had no cluch either.Originally posted by Rick Jones
A lot of the cheap trimmers don't have a clutch. I've got a Homelite backup trimmer that doesn't have a clutch. My uncle bought a brand new Homelite back in '95 and that didn't have a clutch. You don't get a whole lot for sixty bucks!
