I've been a small engine tech (2 & 4 cycle) for over 30yrs, so let me tell you a few things I have done to make my Ryobi SS26 run great. First and foremost is the carb hi & lo screws MUST be readjusted to a slightly richer mixture. As it is delivered, the machine is way too lean on both lo and hi adjustments (just the way the EPA likes it..btw) and can not develop full power. If held at wide open throttle the engine will overheat. The adjustment is very slight but VERY necessary.....I used the special tool and turned mine out no more than 1/4 turn each and the engine went from hard starting and wouldn't accept any throttle to xlnt. Slotting the mixture screws so they can be turned using a regular screwdriver also works well. Cold starting goes like this....full choke/full throttle/pull starter 2-3 times until engine "pops" or burbles/dies. Turn choke lever to middle position/still holding full throttle and pull starter 2-3 times until engine starts......warm engine for a minute or so at middle choke then flip choke to run and go to work. This is all it should take AFTER readjusting your carb.
Another glaring oversight I saw was that these little trimmers do not come equipped with any type of paper or foam air filter. They do have a mesh screen over the carburetor inlet but that's not enough, you need some type of media there to catch the fine debris that could/will get by the screen. The air filter lid does have a nice square opening inside that I was able to slip a small square of UNI foam air filter material into, now we have some filtering! This is an absolute must IMO.
Another thing I had read is that these can be hard starting right after shut down.....

Pro: I have had mine for a few weeks and have had it out to use a few times. Everytime it starts up great as long as you follow the directions on the air filter box. Remember it will not start up as easy as your push mower. It is a different type of engine and it has high compression to give it as much power for its size. I really like the straight shaft, makes it easier to use for someone who is over 6 feet tall. Also because has the expand - it system you can twist the head upside down to make for easier edging without buying a new attachment.

Con: First thing is that the fuel tank is small and you cannot see the fuel level without taking off the cap. When I opened up the air filter box I was surprised when I saw only a screen being used as an air filter. The screen was plastic and has holes the same size as what you would find on your windows at home. I think this was done on purpose to cause extra wear on the internal engine components. I highly recommend finding a foam filter to fit in the air filter cover. There is a spot you can insert a filter. What I found was the best option was a filter that fits in the spot almost perfect. I found it at [...] Just type in Ryobi air filter and it pops up as the first option. It fits well, just add a little oil and put it in.

I know there are complaints about not idling well or stalling when you try full throttle. That is caused by the adjustment screws are needing some tweaking. On amazon search pac-man carb adjustment tool. The tool is about $15 and it fits exactly into the special screws on the carburetor. The one with the H next to it is for full throttle and the one with the L next to it is for the idle. These screws adjust the air fuel mixture.

I was excited to receive the "reburbished/like new" trimmer. Following the directions exactly the item would not even start!

Was about to buy a tool to work on it but then decided that as just bought out of the box, that i would go with the sellers recommendations,which was to take it to one of their local repair shops first. This I did only to have the repair shop tell me that they will not do any more business with this seller and so, WOULD NOT EVEN LOOK AT MY JUST BOUGHT TRIMMER! What the hell?!

Then once I contacted this seller by phone they wanted to charge me a $25.00 restocking fee! After that was settled, I was emailed instruction for return of the item, which they informed me that they would have to receive and inspect before returning my money to me, oh yeah and I will have to return it on my own dime for around $50.00 or so, on top of the $80+ they already have of my hard earned money to equal $130+ !

So my choice seems to be pay out of pocket to have this "refurbished" like new item FIXED myself, or send it back and out $50 on a $80+ item, and possibly risk them keeping both the item, my money, adding a $25 restocking fee, plus the $50 to the post office! Unfricking believable!

I didn't buy a reconditioned ss26, I bought a new unit from HD.
Right out of the box the idle screw had to be run in to keep the unit running. Then after I finally got it dialed in and started to trim I found the real fault on this POS....The choke lever extends far enough out that it regularly makes contact with your hip during use and subsequently places it into the choke position killing the engine. Proof that the design pukes have never run their product or it wouldn't have left the factory. There are two heads that come with this machine, the standard wound head and a heavy duty line that you insert into holes. Both work well when the weed eater works, That's a problem. I started the weed eaters life with a new fuel tank, fresh gas and good quality 2 stroke oil. It never has run well, always hard to start. With in 6 months I had to replace the fuel lines and primer button....I don't cut my grass so oftern that the thing wore out, it's just crap.. save yourself the headache, spend the money on a real weedeater.
