The manual says .08. I assume the .95 won't feed correctly.

It is most likely laying in the store parking lot. The cover doesn't stay shut very well and on mine I have to look around the yard and find it after every use. it's a ring shaped piece of foam. Walmart doesn't sell replacements - I've got the same problem b/c I can't find mine today.

Other than that, for $80 you can't beat it. The complaints seem to come from people that are comparing it to a $300 trimmer.

answer 3
Yes. These are 40:1 mix ratios. If you do not want to mix pehaps try 40Fuel which is sold in most Walmart stores. It is pre-blended 2 cycle fuel that contains no ethanol and will help maintain equipment at peak performace. Whatever your decision PLEASE DO NOT USE OLD GAS. Stale fuel is leading cause of poor performance in newly purchased equipment.

It has a clutch. Most, if not all, straight shaft trimmers do this.

This unit includes a clutch. The clutch prevents head from turning when not using throttle and allows for easier start by not placing load on unit when pulling starter cord.

Remove only the bump knob and bolt and then the spool will come off to be refilled. The outer spool is held on by a clip and need not be removed.

answer 2
Reaper,
There is a retainer ring on the inside of the Outer Spool Assembly that needs to be removed in order to remove that assembly. It is not an easy task and will require patience and use of one or two small screwdrivers. Now with that said, If you are wanting to simply remove the spool itself to replace the string, grasp the housing and spin, counter clockwise, the bump head knob assembly which is located in the center of the spool. Once fully removed you may have to give the spool a slight twist to get it free and removed from the Outer Spool Assembly. Hope that helps.

Alot of trimmers have a certain way to wrap the line on the spool, change the way you wrap it and also make sure theres no line tangled underneath keeping the spool from locking after line release..

It may be that the spring is missing, the line is wound backward or it needs cleaning. This is general information regarding trimmers and not specific to this brand.
