Customer Questions & Answers

How do you re-string this trimmer

I've lost the manual and am now clueless as to re-stringing. I have the UT32655A 26cc striaght shaft 2012 model. Can Anyone help? Thanks G
Asked by: Gmoney
I don't know if this will help you, it may be something you don't want to consider. But it really helped me. I do not like and I cannot tolerate the "bump" feed string line. I took the entire string spool off and replaced it with the type where you can replace worn and missing lines individually. You can pick these up at Home Depot in the same place where the string trimmers are displayed. Save yourself a lot of time and hassle, believe me; it's worth the 20 bucks that you spend for it. The spool replacement takes about 5 minutes, and the platform that you buy enables you to set four 8 inch lines individually in the platform. When they wear out, you set four more by hand. Heaven!

When not running, should the line head be freewheeling?

Line head spins freely by hand in either direction with motor off. Is this different from any trimmer that I've previously owned. Is this normal? I think not...
Asked by: LawnRanger
Yes, LawnRanger, when not running or in use, the string head will still turn. This function is because this is a clutch-style unit and any clutch-style unit will do this.

How do I mix the gas

Asked by: mackedo
Ratio is 50 to 1 so I use a 2 gallon can which means I need 2.5oz. X 2 gal. = 5oz. of 2 stroke oil. I pour it in the gas can first so when I fill it it automatically mixes the oil with the gas. I have multiple pieces of yard equipment that need the oil and gas so I run all my stuff like my chain saw, snow blower, weed trimmer, etc using a 32 to 1 ratio so I do not have a bunch of diff. gas cans. The 32-1 vs. 50 to 1 means the motor will get a bit more oil to lubricate the engine which has not caused any of my stuff to foul a plug (wet plug) or cause any of them not to start in over 35 years. You will damage the motor if you run the motor to lean (meaning lower oil to gas ration). Example would be using 50 to 1 in a motor that needs 16 to 1. I also mark my gas can to ensure I am using a can that has the oil mix in it. NEVER use it for anything other than the oil and gas mix. Hope this helps you.

Customer Reviews

2-Cycle 26cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 163.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly built, hard to start Decided to get it mainly for the low price. Bought it, took it home and assembled it. Put fresh mixed gas in it and tried to start it. After 25 pulls I should have known something was wrong. But kept going and got it to start. Once started the engine sounded weak with a rough idle. When I pulled the trigger it would bog down and shut off even after warm up. I had to baby the throttle to keep it from turning off. I took it back and opted to spend extra on an Echo. Night and day the Echo's smaller motor has more power, starts in one pull and is very easy to use. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well but has several design quirks The trimmer itself works well and I used it quite harshly a few times now. The trimmer is light, powerful and feels overall solid. My primary complaints are with the design of the tool itself. Attaching the guard is not intuitive and is not easy to do without a third hand helping. Also, restringing the device is not intuitive and even after reading the instructions and lining up the arrows the string simply refuses to go through without snagging at least a few times. To be fair, not having to remove the head is nice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You Get What You Pay For Very easy to assemble and use. I bought this thing about 4-5 months ago. Used it maybe 10 times if that many. Went to start it today and it started fine. However, when I give it gas, it bogs down and shuts off. I knew this wouldn't last long before I purchased it, but I was hoping it would at least get me through this summer. To be honest, you should save your money and look else where.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AAA - Excellent Gas Trimmer and Great Value Proposition Easy to use with lots of power. Easiest trimmer I have ever "re-strung" and takes less than 2 minutes. Cannot believe the quality for this price point. My $100 trimmer cuts and produces same result as a $500+ Stihl when used in typical lawn applications. Last Homelite trimmer lasted 25 years (curved shaft) and still runs very good today. The straight shaft allows user a more erect posture when using as less stress on lower back. note: I use Husqvarna 50:1 fuel mix with 93 octane non-ethanol gasoline and trimmer has NEVER failed me. Before starting, be sure to press fuel bulb 5 - 8 times and set carburetor to full choke.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money I use once per month for the last 4 years, no problem to start, never dies
Date published: 2016-11-02
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly designed product Disappointed that Home Depot would market and sell a product with obvious defects. I ignored the poor reviews and purchased. Big mistake. Don't ignore reviews! This product was exactly as reviewed. Hard to maintain smooth start. One tap spooling never did work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of cr**!!!! This is the worst... Dont waste your money unless you want to beat this thing against a tree to feel better!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a piece of junk I bought this unit less than a year ago and after approx 10 hours of use it seized up. The mix is 50:1 and was always fueled correctly with low ethanol blends of gas. I couldn't resist taking it apart to inspect internals for damage, There was virtually no wear on piston, cylinder, wrist pin and crank connecting bearing. The problem is the crankshaft itself . The end play of the crank shaft moves longitudinally in the bearing case. The bearing itself is simply not up to the task of carrying the rotating mass. All this equals one thing folks. It is built to fail quickly, no matter how well maintained you keep it. Don't buy it unless you want to buy a new one in a year. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! This unit just steals your money and leaves you saying WTF Home Depot, don't you care what you sell?
