mitsubishi TU26 strimmer / brush cutter
« on: January 16, 2011, 19:36 »
I have just been given a petrol strimmer / brush cutter the only information I can find about it is that it has a mitsubishi TU26 2 stroke engine. there is no information about the manufacturer, but looking online it seems it could be a Kaaz or maybe a Danart (could be a vs 256).
unfortunately I have no manual for it so I am not sure of what controls what or even how to start it.
Any advice would be useful as I hope to use this to keep the hedge back and keep the paths clear on my allotment and round my garden.

Thanks

I'm not familiar with that particular machine. If you could post a picture or two, that would help. The controls are pretty standard, so a pic of the throttle set-up, and one of the carb/air filter would do the job.

The small orange button is designed so that you can hold the throttle on a little when starting. Place your hand over the dead mans lever on the top, pull the throttle in and hold it with your forefinger, push the small button in with your thumb and hold it in while letting the throttle off. You should find, if you look at the top of the carb while doing it, that the throttle comes of rest, and then is held on ,just a bit, by the button. If you "blip" the throttle, the button should "ping" out to it's original position.

Other than that, the starting procedure will be the same for any other small two stroke.

Do the above.
set switch to start.
prime the bulb a couple of times.
Turn choke on.
pull rope untill the engine coughs.
Turn off choke.
pull engine over again and it should go.

Don't keep pulling the engine over on choke after it's coughed for the first time or you will flood it.
Let me know how you get on, and if you need any more help, sing out. :)

Well I got it started, and just when I thought it should be warming up t died again. after a bit of playing around I ascertained that there is a fuel line blockage, time to strip the fuel tank down ad clear the fuel filter I think.
