Question Of The Day

on 09.20.2011

I will pose this question for you. My weed eater slash edger has taken a kind of shit on me. After tearing it apart and basically figuring out the problem, I have two options. Start ordering parts for it, if I can find it. Or just get a new one a Home Depot. It's not a expensive one, it's $150 bucks, and is a multi attachment deal. But I imagine for the time plus effort to fix it, it might be just easier to go pick up a new one. Or I can search for the parts, and the problem and try to fix it myself. What are your thoughts? --Jay

Well Jay the rule of thumb is if to fix it cost more than 1/2 the price of a new one I would say Buy a new one with a Waranty! How every in this Economy thanks to the Clown in the White House & the Morons in the Senate, I go for repairing it and doing it yourself

your other option get a pet goat they will keep it nice and clipped short, and you end up doing NO work

a goat or a sheep might be cheaper in the end they won't steal you blind or not show nor do they expect to be paid

just buy a new one, but have you considered that this might be a sign? would it hurt to bend over and pull weeds out yourself, maybe get a little exercise so you're not the next bloated death video on this site

Stihl makes really good machines, but they're not cheap. If you can fix it yourself, do it. If not, buy a new one and put the old one up for sale on craigslist, so someone else can fix it and use it.

Buy a Stihl KM 90. It's their version of the attachment. It's about $300 for the motor head and the attachments vary in price. It will last at least 10 years with the yearly trip to the shop for up keep. You can afford it don't say you can't you cheap bitch.

Go 4 cycle, but do not go RYOBI. They have issues with the oil lines popping off of the cylinder head. I bought a pair of Troy-Bilt 4cycle power heads, and have had no issues at all. You can even go uber lazy and get the electric starter for them

just go to home depot and buy a new mexican to do your yard its cheaper

hit the pawn shop, buy a used one for $40, when it breaks just go buy another one

buy a STIHL and you'll never have to buy another one again PERIOD.... and for the dumb fucking idiots that think stihl only makes chainsaws go use one to cut your head off but make sure you tape it for all of us to laugh at.

its really simple jay, lookup parts in the phone book any lawnmower repair can hook you up... 9 times out of ten its just the spark plug

Buy the same brand, hold onto the dead piece of shit, return the dead piece of shit with the receipt for the new one just before the receipt expires. Repeat entire process next year. AKA FUCK THE MAN!!!

jay, i own a mower repair business. let us know what brand of machine you have, and i can tell you where to find parts online. stay away from the home depot throw away machines. especially the mtd models, bolens, troy bilt, ryan, ryobi, yard machines, craftsman, and god knows what other names they use. echo builds some of the nicest and cheapest priced home owner machines. stihl is an awesome machine too, but stay away from the 4 mix models. husqvarna is another company that builds awesome machines too. i sell all 3 of these brands because they are the best on the market. older homelites were nice and simple, but the new ones are junk too. one web site you can probably find parts for your machine is partstree.com. you do need to know your model and serial number for your machine to look up the part you need. it is usually cheaper to fix them.

Kill all the weeds and grass with ground kill then put in rocks, gravel and cactus. Fuck yard work, you will have more time for drinking beer...

Jay D.
Thanks all for the ideas. Goats/sheep not a bad idea. Yes before, I used to have some honda weed eater /shindaiwa edger. That was some pro shit, and well, some asshat broke into my shed and stole them. Now I have a cheap ass ryobi. I'm going to work on it a bit more. It seems to be flooding, if I pump the ball. Probably something with the gasket between the ball pump and carb.

"pump the ball" lol. It's called priming.
