If you're having trouble getting your brush cutter to start or the engine isn't running smoothly, there could be a handful of reasons why. Brush cutters may have a small engine, but there are still a few things that can go wrong with them. Fortunately, the parts on a brush cutter can be repaired or replaced if they begin to malfunction.
A common issue is that a brush cutter takes a few tries to start or won't start at all. The first thing to check is the fuel. Fuel that has been stagnant for a month or more will begin to break down. If your cutter doesn't work with fresh fuel, then you'll want to check the spark plug. Replace the spark plug if it shows signs of rust or damage. If your brush cutter still does not start, then you will want to try rebuilding or replacing the carburetor.
Another problem could be that your brush cutter is leaking fuel. If it's leaking, identify where the leak is. If it's leaking from the tank or fuel line, those can be easily replaced. Fuel leaking from the carburetor may be due to a broken seal or a crack in the carburetor itself. You can rebuild or replace the carburetor if this is the case.
