multiple failures with bump advance string trimmers
First time user. Hello all. I work in landscaping on a minimal scale for several families. I find that each string trimmer I use has a different personality (2 ryobi 1 weedeater and 1 stihl)all gas and all have the same basic problem. I believe it is user error.
No matter how much time I invest in winding and installing the string they just will not advance properly. Usually I have to stop the motor and manually advance the string culminating in lost time and excessive frustration. I have indeed hurled my own ryobi across the yard in a fit. This is not conducive to proper function. My clients and I would really appreciate help with this.
I always tap pavement or another solid object with the motor revving high, usually to no avail. The plastic will just not come out. One family had previous to me gotten tired of the same annoyance with their stihl and opted for the blade attachment which works great for big stuff but tends to fan the weeds away from itself. Counterproductive.
I need a reliable string supply and am at my wits end.
I feel there is something fundamental that I am missing.
I defer to the expertice of this forum.
Happy fourth to one and all.
