Hey guys...I have a Redmax 2600 trimmer. Seems to be losing power when I crank it...almost like its bogged down but its not. Any clue what this could be? Id take it to my dealer...but he'll take 3 yrs to fix it.
Its neither of those...Im thinking bad fuel or carbon build up...Im gonna run some new mix in it...see if that does it. Maybe the carb?? If I run her full throttle...she stalls out--thats why I think carb. But the thing isnt even a year old.
I had the same problem... Someone in the know can drill out a plug on the carb to get to the adjustment screw. Turn the screw counterclockwise to adjust the air mixture. The reason the screw is covered is due to emissions regulations. There is no carb adjustment screw vissible right? I've seen this done & it works. They are great trimmers... just need carb adj.
Let me know how you make out...Joe
yeah, themowerman is right. too much load (too long of string) will flood the motor with fuel and wash down the ring(s) in the piston causing premature failure of the engine. if you run without the guard, make sure the rpms are still up there.
