"Hi Sam
There are plenty of rouges out there but there are also plenty of good sole traders and companies (many of whom are on this site) that carry out work like this on a regular basis.  Its down to the client to carry out due diligence and ensure…"

"Although a long shot a previous stihl strimmer i once owned ran very erratically and i only discovered the problem oneday after it wouldn't turn off so had to pull the rubber boot off the spark plug and  in doing so received an electric shock .

"+1 for skytec argon. Very very warm and rubber coating is really tough and lasts for ages. Screwfix used to do them though i think i bought online last time. I do construction and only go through 1 pair over the colder months they are that tough.

"My only experience with a powered scarifier is the sch rr3 rotor raker. We've rented it dozens of times over the past 10 years as it can be towed behind a ride-on as well as pushed. The main downside is the lack of a collector, but I would imagine a…"

"Coils can have an intermittent problem......I'd buy a new coil.... about £50.  Open the box carefully so if it doesn't do the trick, you can resell it on Ebay as "new" without losing much money.  Funnily enough, I picked up a replacement carb for my…"

"Has the machine had a new spark plug fitted? A small piece of carbon rattling round in the spark plug 'nose' gives exactly the syptoms you describe - had it twice this week myself oddly as it hasn't happened for a good while!"
Oliver clarkson replied to Oliver clarkson's discussion Km94
"New carb 10 days ago. So I'm thinking if I spend the money on the coil and it ain't that, I've got a machine with new parts on it that doesn't do the job."

"I have to have 2 new carbs fitted  by the dealer on mine they are made of cheese, mine is not working again and I'm not throwing anymore money at it. It's only 18 months old. "
