Common parts in Homelite tools
Proper maintenance is key for any tool, but it is still possible for parts to break down from time to time. Here are some common parts that can be replaced.
Carburetor—All gas-powered tools have a small carburetor that mixes compressed gas and air at a specific ratio to generate power. If the carburetor is leaking or damaged, it may need to be rebuilt or replaced.
Guide bar—The guide bar on a chainsaw is the bar on which the cutting chain is spun. If the cutting chain is loose at all, the guide bar or screws holding it in place should be tightened or replaced.
Blade guard—The blade guard on an edger protects the operator from any flying debris. If this guard is loose or falls off, it may need to be replaced.
Fuel line—The fuel line is usually a plastic, transparent tubing that connects the gas tank to the carburetor. If the line is cracked or leaking, it may need to be replaced to prevent further leaking.
Fan—The fan on a leaf blower is connected to the engine crankshaft and is responsible for moving air at high speeds. The fan may become loose and lose efficiency or become louder than normal, in which case it may need to be repaired or replaced.
Recoil starter—On equipment that is pull-started, the recoil starter includes the starter rope and spins the engine to fully engage it.
