Resurrected an Echo SRM-210 line trimmer, non-starting/running, left sitting a long time. Required a full carb refurb, fresh fuel, spark plug and air filter. Now a runner, reliably starting on 1st pull. My neighbor (the owner) appreciates it.

saw this sitting in my neighbors driveway....a kids toy ATV, powered electrically. Of course not running, laying outdoors for years. I offered them a *free* resto, which was fully successful. Ordered a new, correct battery....one broken wire repaired, the (not working) forward/reverse switch disassembled and cleaned....BINGO! She's fully operational in both high and low speed AND forward and reverse configurations! The headlights are even working! Total success.

follow up to kids ATV post above.....the lady owner advised me her 8 or 9 year old niece will be the rider. She's been bugging her Auntie to fix or replace it! I asked her to advise me when she comes over...I really want to see the thing in action!

PS....the seat is back on, pic was taken with it removed.

I recently "inherited" (from a neighbors outdoor garbage heap) a Craftsman 22" push mower, obviously being let go due to a non-starting condition. The owner, seeing me looking at it, joined me and explained someone purposely put sugar in the fuel tank. He said "its yours for the taking". I obliged and thanked him.

Since then, after a new starter cable, blade and air filter purchase....oil change, fuel tank cleanout, 2 or 3 carb cleaning/tweaking sessions.....its FINALLY starting (reliably, I might add) on 1st pull..... consistently.
Total success.....a keeper!

that's COOL ! little victories add up ! I used to gather up old mowers free for the taking
and therefore never ever had to buy one.... but I quit doing that when I moved here (there wasn't any !) so I bought a electric one that still works after 3 years it was a Harbor freight Atlas 80v electric mower that is also self propelled.... and it's still going
no starting issues no oil changes or gas problems...it works when I want it to !!!!! AMAZING ! the only thing that made me really have to think about it was the batteries for it were over $100.00 each..... and I needed 2 of them one for the mower and one for the weed trimmer..... but as far as lawn stuff goes man I am sold on electric !
all in all I think I spent $399 for the mower $120 for the trimmer and $200 for the batteries and charger..... that is a bunch of money for me for lawn care...but I bit the bullet and did it and boy am I glad I did ! best thing besides the Hercules tools I ever got from them..... those electric tools are fantastic ! and the batteries last a long time
no problem with having to stop and recharge ! I just charge when I am done !
.....
I'm a believer now ! LOL
(because I hate extension cords!)
....
Bob......

I actually posted this to EX500 forum .... a repair on my EGo electric mower
A full replacement of the heart of the electrical system due to an internal failure. cost? $120 total, cheaper than replacing the entire mower, fo' sho'.
