Homelite UT32600 bogs down

knotshawkApril 22, 2010

I bought this weed trimmer from Home Depot a few days ago. I put it all together (including an aftermarket spool that allows for fixed trimmer string...ie not a bump spool). I started it up and after it was warmed up, and I'd been using it for a little bit, it began to act up. If I'd pull the trigger it begins to sputter like it will die. However, if I gently squeeze/nurse the trigger (pulsing the motor to get the RPMs up slightly) and then go full throttle, it works fine. What could be causing this?

The only things I could guess would be bad fuel or too much weight from the new spool unit. Both seem unlikely. Ideas?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

If you only bought it a few days ago, it would still be under warranty, take it back and get another one.
