(oh people are listening, but relating it too ancient mowing arguement about guardless trimming) Real fun thread you might wanna look into sometime on this matter.Ok I guess noones listening well enough, I dont care about warranty and I never asked about warranty so why would you even reply back with such a narrow minded answer? I need another line trimmer that someone is using with the guard off and is successful at running the line long, that is my ONLY question...
Warranty is definitely worth caring about especially were stihl has extended one on newer equipment.
And some people do value safety.
Nice.We were not putting you down we were simply saying no trimmer is going to hold up by taking the guard off
Shindowa and stihle are also both good trimmers but you will find you will have the same hard start problems down the road from not running the trimming guard.
yes I know you didnt ask this but I am saying it because you might not know or understand it .im not trying to be a smart ars
Taking the guard off will lower your rpms. Lowering the rpms do not allow the engine to clean itself out. When it does not clean itself out the carburetor will start to clog up. When the carburetor clogs up the exhaust will clog up. As a result to running a machine with low rpms you will have hard start problems.
Try and take the exhaust screen off your trimmer and adding 2 cap fulls of WD40 to your gas. Wd40 will help clean your carb and still give the lubrication your machine will need.
We have several redmax trimmers and do not have hard start problems.
Actually on this subject (WD40), does this solve a lot of the hand held carb problems, barring a completely fouled carb?
Very nice.O I am sorry .I probably gave you to much information that you didnt ask for .sorry
