mclane edger 3.5 BRIGGS motor

jakriz11April 26, 2010

I just bought a used mclane edger. it starts on the first pull, but stalls during use. I have never used an edger before, so I am pretty clueless on where to start for up keep care and repairs. thanks in advance for any advice.

Sounds like the main jet isn't open as far as it should be or there is varnish in the carb.

Mine has an adjustable main jet. It looks like a screw. Gently turn it in until it seats and then back out 1 1/2 turns. Adjust slightly under a load, from there.

If your main jet is not visible or adjustable, the carb should be removed and cleaned.
