Q:Can you out a wheel on trimmer in frrint
by|May 15, 2020
3 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  I don't believe you would be able to bolt a wheel onto the front of the housing as it would interfere with the path of the rotating string lines. If you were really determined to do so, you would need to bolt a straight bracket out over the front of the mower housing at least 4-5 inches, then drop down and attach the wheel. The 2 large wheels on the unit take most of the weight, when going over uneven ground, which is much of mine, I do slightly lift the front up a little to make sure the hub doesn't drag on the ground when it is rotating, but the mower is well balanced and it tips up without much pressure. I keep mine in the lowest position to cut the weeds and wild grass as low as possible for fire safety.

A:  Too many typos. Are you trying to ask if a Front wheel can be added? The front nose cone works perfect in tight spots and the pair of large back wheels makes pushing over rough terrain very easy.

by|May 16, 2020

    A:  you could but it's not advisable due to you would spend more time removing taller grass from the wheel the ball type will let you glide over the cut grass more easy. remember the ball is up front and also to ad a wheel would extend the nose further out making it create grass to lie down and not being cut. you would have to visualize what problem you will create do a jig and see how it works for you, I say it will work to good.

      A:  20 inches

      by|May 16, 2020

        A:  The distance between the inside of the wheels is 16 1/2 inches, the outer edge of the wheels is 19 3/4 inches. My mower came with 2 manuals, one for the mower and one for the engine. Neither manual even mentions the drive belt or springs. They cover the oil, spark plug, air cleaner, carbon foam filter and fuel filter, but not the belt. Hopefully this means it is a rare failure. I've been using mine for 4 years, probably about 75 hrs or so of heavy use and it still works like a champ. MTD, the OEM of the unit does list a replacement drive belt on their website however. There is nothing in the manual or on any of the stickers on the unit that mentions RPM.

        A:  Can’t tell. It was a gift to someone else. They were very happy with it.

          Q:Can you replace the string with plastic or metal blades
          by|May 3, 2020

          Answer This Question

          A:  Hello Art. The string trimmer can not be replaced with plastic or metal blades. Thank you for your question.

          by|May 7, 2020

            A:  You could probably use wire but dangerous.

            by|May 17, 2020

              A:  This mower cannot be modified with blades. With the normal dual strings, it will cut through some thinner tree branches as is if the wood isn't too hard, you would need to try with your species. The ones I cut are usually very dry, fallen small twigs and branches so they snap fairly easily. If you really need to cut lots of branches, you can get a blade attachment for a hand held shafted string trimmer, I have one for my Craftsman that takes interchangeable heads. But not for this walk behind string trimmer.

                          A few issues, but cuts well
                          Overall this does a pretty good job at cutting tall grass. However, there are a few issues you should consider before purchasing. First, the handle is designed so the safety lever fits flush with the handle. But the way they creased the handle to allow this it created a sharp ridge right where your palms rest and put pressure on the handle. It caused bruising and pain in the palm and outer part of hand. Also the safety lever is inside the handle so any time you need to maneuver the trimmer it digs into the side of your hand and pinkie finger. I ended up having to use gloves, which helped only a little, and I do not have soft hands. I've worked with my hands doing manual labor since I was a kid. During the summers I used to work for a parks department doing this type of work 8 hours a day five days a week, so no, it's not my hands. You have to wrap the handle with something soft, like pipe insulation, in order to alleviate this. I temporarily wrapped it with rags just to get the job done. Second issue is that if you are going across a slope with the right side of the trimmer on the downhill side, it will start to cut out like it's running out of gas. You have to keep the fuel level above a half a tank to keep it from doing this which means refueling often, taking more time to do the job. The owners manual says it can be used on up to a 15 degree slope, my property has only a 10 degree slope. Third issue is that the oil drain plug is at the base of the filler tube right above the deck, instead of underneath like a lawn mower. So, when you unscrew it to change the oil, oil goes all over the deck and right side axle. Before putting oil in it, I'd recommend you remove the plug and replace it with a bleed valve like on a brake system. That way you can use tubing to drain the oil without making a mess. Finally, like some others have mentioned, the height adjustment is a pain in the you know what. If you need to change cutting height often, do not buy this. At first I thought I'd return it, but it does do a pretty good job of cutting. It rarely bogs down at all even in the tall stuff. If you don't mind making some modifications to make it easier to use, then I'd recommend it. I'm a little surprised out of all the reviews, nobody else noticed what seems to me to be obvious issues. Hope this helps other people with their decision.

                          I was very impressed on how well my trimmer worked. I needed to clear out a wide area of weeds and overgrowth. It took everything out with ease. I'm now using it to clear other areas I didn't think I could.

                          Engine Keeps Stalling
                          I was anxious to use my brand new Series 260 trimmer. Unfortunately, the engine keeps stalling. I checked fuel filter, air filter, gas tank cap vent. No luck. Spent over an hour on hold for customer service as well as 30 minutes waiting for an agent to respond to my chat request on-line. Based on other reviews, I must have gotten a lemon. However, the customer service leaves a lot to be desired as well. I will never buy Remington again.
