Default TB 4 stroke WW?

Ok so this is the 2nd season for my TB 4 stroke. I have followed the maintenance as per the manual but had a problem with it today. I finished the lawn at a ranch and the owner asked me to cut the dead weeds in front of the coral on my way back to the highway. I got underway but about midway through it just died. It would idle but as soon as you hit the gas it would die. I figured maybe I overheated it so grabbed the old 2 stroke and finished the job. At the next job site I took the 4 stroke back out and it still had the same problem. The only way to get it above idle was to set the choke at about 90% after about 75% of the job was done all of the sudden it revved and now works fine. Any ideas? I thought maybe something stuck in the carb but saw nothing.

Which one did you get? Do you have any attachments for it? I was looking at one & wanted some feeback on them. You definately had a fuel issue. Probably like you said, something stuck in the carb that dislodged & cleared out.

I got the TB5755S They have 2 models that I saw I got the one with the gear drive head and strait shaft as apposed to the curved shaft. I have yet to buy any attachments for it but plan on getting them all. I absolutely love it, I think its only 25cc and there is a performance problem using big line like the big red stuff but I usually use the Orange or green line and that works great. It very very quiet, I can use it at 5am and not bother anyone. If you get one though get an aftermarket head for it as the factory dual line head sucks. I replaced the head after 15 minutes of use.

Default TB 4 stroke WW?

I have 2 of them and both did the same thing after 2 years. Soon they will not run at all. Good news its just a valve in the carb. It cost me $20 each to get fixed and they both work great. I like the TB products . I had a craftsman 4 stroke blower that worked great till one day the motor just lost compression. Has anyone used a 4stroke back pack blower ?

Where did you get it at? I cant find that model online. Does it have a fixed line head or a tap head?

How often do you change the line in a fixed line head? What kind of maintanence are you all doing to get these to last so long using them everyday?

Hey Jason,

How do you like that 4 stroke? I would think that it will not have as much low end tourque and would bog down easier than a 2 stroke. what do you think? I might have to stop by some day and check it out. Mine are echo commercial duty, work great!

TB 57555 is that Troy Built??

Did you catch any rattlers yet this year? Still waiting for the movie, lol!

KEN!!!!!! Fancy seeing you here. No I got away from the business. Sold all my breeders and started this lawn care thing lol. Anyway I LOVE the 4 stroke. It purs like a kitten. I can fire it up out front at 4am and not even bug the squirls. Just today I purchased the brush cutter attachment and tiller attachment. I played with them out on the back 40 and they are really cool but not sure how they will handle a real load. I have a property to finish this week some time so the brush cutter will get the real test then. Its only I think 29cc. It dose bog down but so long er the throttle is at about 80% with the blade head it cuts through the little pine trees around here and doesn't skip a beat. I'm going to play with it out back again some time tomorrow mid day. Stop by if you want.
