What are starting instructions?

Asked by: Rich
Thank you, Rich. Please follow these instructions in order to start the unit. To start a cold engine: The starting method differs depending on whether the engine is cold or warm. *Place the hedge trimmer on level ground and ensure that no objects or obstructions are in the immediate vicinity that could come in contact with the blades. *Hold the front handle firmly with your left hand and put your right foot onto the base of the rear handle. n PRIME - Press the primer bulb 7 times. NOTE: After the 7th press, fuel should be visible in the primer bulb. If it is not, continue to press the primer until you see fuel in the bulb. n SET the start lever to the START position. n PULL the starter grip and rope until the engine starts. n Squeeze throttle trigger lock-out and throttle trigger. NOTE: Squeezing and releasing the throttle trigger releases the start lever to the RUN position. To start a warm engine: PULL the starter grip and rope until the engine starts. I hope this helps!

does it have a gas shut off valve to prevent carb fouling

do you need to run dry to prevent fouling of carb
Asked by: Ed
Hello Ed! This does not have a fuel shut off valve. It is recommended that when storing for 1 month or longer that you drain all fuel from tank into a container approved for gasoline. Run engine until it stops. Thanks for your inquiry!

22 in. 26 cc Gas Hedge Trimmer is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 88.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't wast your money... seriously!! Fault fuel and carburetor system. Was fine for three uses, then starts but bogs down when trying to throttle. $50.00 replacement carb, plug, ignition switch, still a won't run. Worst $200.00 bucks I ever spent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst purchase ever This worked for one season, but now won't run longer than a few seconds and the engine overheats. Do not buy this piece of junk.
Date published: 2016-10-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing Has nice features such as adjustable handle and an Off switch that automatically resets to the On position for the next time you need to start it up. Ran good the first season but the second season could not keep it running. Clearly a carburetor issue from not completely draining the fuel over the winter thus a user error. Nevertheless, a bit temperamental since I'm guilty of not draining other equipment on the farm without that being an issue. The good news you can get a replacement carburetor for less than $8. Will give it a go.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from absolute junk Ran 1 season residential use trimming landscape around house. Next year wouldn't start and spent over half the cost of unit in replacement of faulty ignition coil and service to get it running.. ran 1 season of the same type of light season wouldn't start again...shame on Ryobi...Don't waist your money...I would give it 0 stars if possible...totally unreliable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price came pre-assembled, remember 50-1 ratio gas. very easy to start, ran perfect. a little heavy, but well balanced. for the price, it's well worth it. all of the rest I looked at were over the $230.00 mark

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont buy one of these! I wish there was a score below zero. Bought one not long ago, to replace a trimmer maybe 10 years old, used the new Ryobi about 6 times with headaches each time and the final three times total deterioration. Constant problems. I quit today in mid job to throw that piece of junk away, like a thorn out of my side. I'm 64 years old and this is by far the worst trimmer, and worst 2-stroke tool I've ever purchased. Hard to start. Bogs down . Stalls. Leaks. Jams up on little twigs. And I wish I had noticed how poorly made. No---not merely the wrong gas. Might as well have flushed away that money. Going out tonight or tomorrow to buy a trimmer that actually works. The Ryobi might be budget-priced, but its value is zero.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Trimmer -DO NOT PURCHASE I purchased this trimmer from Home Depot just over a year ago and used it maybe 4 times. I have had trouble starting it since the beginning. I tried yesterday and I got half way through a bush and it died and would not start. I called the service center which is about 35 miles away and they said you have to empty the gas even if it is only two weeks. And oh by the way the gas issue is not covered by the warranty and they could fix it for $100. This was a complete waste of money! Notice HD has this piece of garbage on the site as a refurb for $109. Probably since most customers have to return it after minimal use. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS HEDGER!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Returned it Used it for about four hours and the blades stopped working. Returned it for a refund. Worked good other than that.
