Easily the T-Rex of weed eaters, Poulan's Dual-Cut Wheeled Trimmer features a 16-inch cutting swath for whacking down whole fields of weeds fast. Two oversized wheels with burly traction mean easy transport over rugged terrain and no shoulder strain from packing a heavy-duty trimmer around. Great for trimming around long stretches of fence, in gullies, and around water, the 31 cc engine powers 1.15-inch- diameter line to zip through feisty thistle, stubborn grass, and tenacious piles of tumble weeds. Ten-inch, high-traction wheels truck over rough terrain that'd easily roll other wheeled trimmers. A heavy-duty cutting head is built for years of brutal use. A dual exit for the fixed-line offers twice the cutting power while a cushioned handle offers optimal comfort and control. The purchase includes trimmer line and is covered by a Poulan 2-year warranty. Brian D. OlsonSee all Product description

This factory assembly problem is the reason that so many people report that the trimmer string does not turn after they start the engine. This curved tubular piece houses the flexible drive shaft. When delivered without being fully seated in the housing, the flexible drive shaft is not able to engage the clutch on the motor. So this fixes two major problems!
You need only a 4mm Allen wrench. First loosen the two screws on the side of the front angle drive and slide off the angle drive altogether. Then remove the two screws and nuts on the clamp that holds the tubular pieces of the frame to the curved tubular piece that houses the flexible shaft from the motor. It helps a lot to have a second person assist in holding things, because this clamp that just got removed holds the motor to the frame. Now remove the front plastic piece ahead of the air intake screen, as well as the screen. Now loosen the two screws that hold the curved tubular piece in the plastic housing and shove the tubular piece further into the plastic housing until it firmly hits bottom, using a back and forth, twisting motion if needed. This is likely close to an inch deeper than you received it. Now, be sure that the far end of the curved tubular piece is pointed down (and not off to the side). Re-tighten those screws that hold the tubular piece in - tighten them quite tight. Then reassemble all: 1) the air screen, 2) the front plastic piece (there's a detent hole in the curved tubular piece for one of the screws in the front plastic piece, 3)the clamp that holds the curved tubular piece to the two halves of the tubular frame (there is also a detent hole in the curved tubular piece for the clamp), 4) and finally the front, angle drive head. Be sure that all screws are tight.
Now, with a measuring tape, measure from the motor facing back edge of the angle drive to the back of the plastic piece from which the starter cord exits and you should see about 16 and 1/8 inches. Now the thing is assembled as it should have left the factory.
Good luck. This thing could have been designed a whole lot better; but at the very least they could have shipped only correctly assembled ones.
I am constantly looking for a strong, lightweight unit for acerage where I can't use a riding mower or a 6-h.p. rotary wheeled trimmer.
This little unit looked perfect. Alas - it must have been "built on a Friday" so to speak.
It arrived without its screen engine cover properly attached. Ten minutes of fiddling fixed that small problem.
After mixing the 40:1 gas/oil combo I fired it up. No problem - the engine sprung to life immediately. Oh - one major problem - the trimmimg head would not rotate. Seems the drive shaft was "too short" and did not engage with the engine.
Didn't they check that at the factory!?
Thankfully I realized what the problem was and knew (from years of tinkering with other machines) how to fix it. The engine housing screws simply had to be loosened and the drive shaft pushed farther up into the unit until it engaged the engine. Easier said than done.
The screws to make the fix were located underneath the screen engine cover with no "play" available to slide the cover back and reach the screws. Tin snips solved the problem. I cut two small holes in the screen above the screws through which to insert a hex wrench.
It only took about another hour to finish the tinkering and secure and tighten all screws and nuts. This should have been part of the quality control process at the factory.
One cold "Bud" later I fired up the unit again and headed out into the field.
Works like a champ - though it's a little slender at the base and tips over easily on hills. I am going to solve that by inserting a longer axle and widening the base.
CONCLUSION: A great little unit which would have been even greater if they had only put it together properly to begin with.
P.S. - There was a price drop within days after I received the unit and the Amazon Customer Service was first rate in immediately processing a refund for the difference!
