Tackles Big Jobs with Ease

Propane-Powered Eco Trimmer with Detachable Straight ShaftTwist and Go Fueling
Powered by an easy-to-use 16.4-ounce propane canister that snaps into place, the Eco Trimmer starts quickly--simply Twist 'n Go. Its patented propane-fueled technology eliminates the need for mixing gas and oil and requires no choking or priming to start. For further convenience, propane canisters are widely available, and a single canister provides two full hours of run time.


This clever trimmer also cuts out the need for the winterizing, carburetor gum-up, and choking commonly associated with gas-powered models. With an engine that starts faster and runs cleaner, maintaining your lawn won't be the hassle it once was.

Low Fuel and Maintenance Costs
The Propane-Powered Eco Trimmer boasts low fuel and maintenance costs. Standard 16.4-ounce propane canisters are economical and readily available at most hardware stores, sporting goods stores, drug stores, and other locations where lawn and garden products are sold. You'll cut down on expensive trips to the gas station and eliminate the risks associated with storing gasoline near or in your home. An added bonus, the steel propane canisters are 100% recyclable when empty.

To further cut costs, this durable trimmer is incredibly easy to maintain. It's backed by a three-year limited carburetor warranty and a two-year limited manufacturer's warranty.

LEHR - Propane-Powered Eco Trimmer with Detachable Curved Shaft and EPA Approved
Winner of the EPA Clean Air Excellence Award, the Eco Trimmer exceeds 2011 EPA emission standards meant to reduce lawn equipment pollutants. When compared side by side with gasoline, propane is clearly the smarter choice. Propane not only helps keep harmful pollutants out of the air, but it is less expensive than gasoline, so it also helps keep your money in your pocket. What's more, 85% of propane used in the United States is produced domestically, which means propane-powered tools can help eliminate dependence on foreign oil and can help cut down on the waste associated with fuel spills.

In addition, propane contains no evaporative emissions and zero ozone-depleting hydrocarbons. It is a nontoxic substance that won't pollute ground water or soil, and it includes 97% fewer particulates and 96% fewer carcinogens than gasoline. A cleaner and greener alternative to traditional fuel, propane power is a great choice for your garden.

Customer Reviews

You must remove the gas line from the propane tank after each use or the carb will be damaged.
Mikenwa
I switched it on and pulled the rope and it started, but went to full throttle and the rope did not recoil.
R. Cooper
After talking to customer support at Lehr, they determined that the carb needed to be replaced.

I received the detachable, curve shaft model as a Father's day present. I've used it twice so far. It was easy to assemble and started after a few pulls. The manual said it takes a few minutes for the engine to warm up. At first, I wasn't impressed with it's power. I had the throttle fully engaged and thought there's no way the optional brush cutting attachment would work, but after a few minutes the rpms really ramped up. I had to barely touch the throttle to get good power.

I found the unit heavy, very unbalanced and awkward to use. I'm right handed and was using my right hand on the throttle. I had to pull up with my right arm to get the trimmer head near the ground. I'm 6'4" and perhaps the curve shaft wasn't the best choice for me. I tried moving the handle, but when I positioned the handle where it was comfortable for me I had to bend my knees to get the trimmer head down to the ground.

The second time I used it it again started right away, but when I was almost done the engine stopped. I thought I was out of propane and went to change the canister. I found the canister covered with oil. I switched the canister anyway and heard a hissing sound coming from the engine (the propane was leaking) and oil was dripping out. I called customer support and they told me I put too much oil in it. I rejected this idea because the manual and an extra flier warned about putting to much oil in. The support rep assured me I put too much oil in and said the full marker on the dipstick is not right. It's about 4/5 the way up the stick and the rep told me the full mark is really about half way up. The hissing sound was coming from the carburetor diaphragm and the rep told me how to reset it (this is not in the manual).

I bought the LEHR because I've gone through two electric cordless and a small gas/oil WeedEater in three years. I looked at the reviews and thought I had a 80% chance of getting a good machine that works out of the box and might last two seasons. Turns out I had a 100% chance of frustration, but with a good ending. It turns out the internet is better than the instruction manual. I've combed through the internet and these pages at amazon and made a troubleshooting manual of sorts, but it is not end all be all. There are a few things that should help you if your propane powered LEHR doesn't run like it is supposed to.

Starting out, I assembled the trimmer per the instructions. I inserted propane tank( you need the coleman shaped ones, the plumbing propane tanks will screw on, but they won't fit the holder). I pulled like fifty times with nothing. I knew from what others have said, it should start on the first or second pull. ( The manual says you may have to pull like ten times when you first get it). I was getting perturbed, but then remembered the internet. One guy didn't have his spark plug wire snapped on fully. There is a little black cover on the shroud and I reseated it. Pull, pull, pull, pull x 20 times. Anger was rising to a high high level.

The internet had another guy that had to purge the carb so I took a paperclip, unbent it and jammed it into the paperclip sized hole on the bottom of the brassy looking saucer/diaphram on the carb. There is supposed to be a 'pffft' of propane when you do this. Pull x 20 again. Expletives were muttered like a mantra.

A deeper delving into the internet found another guy that had to adjust the carburator. He didn't describe it but I'll tell you what I did.

I purchased one last summer and have had several problems since. After about 5 minutes of running, it stalled and was very hard to restart. Every few minutes it would stall even if it was running fast, and it would never idle properly. I noticed that it was leaking oil from the recoil starter, so I called the support number where my best experience was getting a very helpful tech. We determined that it had a bad crank seal and they exchanged a new engine to correct my problem. By the time I was up and running, the weather had tuned cold, so I only ran it long enough to test it. Now that spring is here, I got it out and had trouble starting it again. I had to prime the carb to get gas into it, but finally got it going. The first time I needed to let out more string, I bumped the release as per the instructions and it wouldn't feed more string. I have now had almost every part of this thing apart to correct problems. Here is what I have learned both from the techs and from my own experience.

You must remove the gas line from the propane tank after each use or the carb will be damaged. The unit should not be hung on the wall, as it must be stored level to keep oil from leaking. You can only run the motor for short times with the engine not level or it will not be lubricated properly, like when using it for edging because the motor has an oil pump and pickup tube which must be submerged in the crankcase oil to provide oil pressure. The dipstick is not accurate and you will have problems if you add oil up to the full mark and some were shipped with more oil than is needed, so you can't use the entire bottle. The tank strap will be stretched and damaged if care is not taken to get the tank in the right position before clamping it.
