is it normal to a new trimmer smell like gas ?
hello forum members, i bought a new hitachi straight trimmer after reading the great reviews , and upon un boxing noticed the fuel reservouir smells a bit like gas , eventhough it looks new : / also noticed the line protector has some marks on the inside as if the trimmer was used , cuz some line strikes apear on all the interior border of it , eventhough the line spool is in its plastic bag an seems not have been used : / , i called the store cuz the sales person told me if anything strange noticied or didnt work or anything could take it back, the person sold it was out of duty but the one answered told me that it should not smell gas in reservoir but that sometimes the companies randomly test their proucts and that mines could be one : ( . Have any of you had similar issues like this ? is he correct ? would apreciate your coments , thanks
