Weed Wacker Upgrade

Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

Generally speaking, I don't buy new lawn-care tools like mowers, blowers, and weed wackers. There are just too many people out there that get rid of perfectly good stuff because they can't fix it or just don't care.

Yesterday the whole fam took a stroll down the street to a garage sale and I saw a weed wacker sitting there in a couple pieces. It was a name brand and looked in pretty good shape. The only problem I noticed was the missing primer bulb. I inquired about its price and was told it was free because it wasn't working.

During Claire's nap I took a closer look and it seemed like it just needed a new primer bulb. There is a small engine shop about half a mile away from the house so I drove over there and got a new bulb for $3. Then I took another trip when I realized the fuel lines were all cracked. A few minutes later it was all put together, gassed up and started on the 3rd pull!

I'd love to help, but I sold this machine at a garage sale last summer. Sorry, I don't have any info on it anymore.
