neither it a low line weed wacker for large overgrown weeded lots. And it does a wonderful job, also you can use it as a lawn mower or edges. I love it this is my second one, my neighbor wanted my older one and it's still runs great.
This mower has a 4 cycle engine and does not require oil in the gas... But be sure to check the oil level before starting, this unit has a low oil shut-down... Read your manual
I don't know I haven't used the machine enough to change the oil yet but I have had a problem finding the orange colored plastic cutting lines . I may have found them today from a maker known as Shakespeare Push and load replacement line sold by Tractor Supply. Remington has a web site and even a number where you can call free of charge and I believe if you provide the machine's serial number they can probably help you with the question regarding synthetic oil . When my machine was taken out of the carton there was oil provided with the machine I had to put in which I think may have been synthetic.
Yes this can handle most saplings, don't rush the machine, go slow and it will do its job. Also for those of you who have noticed that the part number for the drive belts are not on the part list, the part number will be 954-05077 cost $25.86 plus ship/tax
Hello - The Remington Trimmer Mower does not have an electric start option. Thank you for your question.
I can not answer that question as I have not looked under the machine as of yet. All I do with it is crank up and go too work, machine works great so far. Also you can contact Remington direct and they should be able to answer any questions you have.
Mine is tough and works great. Take slow bites and you should be fine as it throws everything out away from the equipment.
Yes! A package of line does come with this machine. And by the way, this is an excellent machine.
check you're tie-off loop, if it is rough or sharp?? I find that twisting ( recommended) tends to shorten the string life?
You can slide the string head up and down for a little adjustment. You can also vary the string height while mowing by pressing the handle bar down. I kept mine all the way down and adjust as needed with the handle bar. There is a ball below the string head that keeps the head from digging into the ground. It works well on most weeds. Hard or thick weeds and fences eat up the string quickly.
