Thanks to everyone who read or commented on the recent post about the Troy-Bilt TB675 EC Trimmer. The review also featured a new grass trimmer giveaway and I am happy to share that the winner based on a selection by a random number generator is Amanda.
Amanda lives in Oregon where she recently purchased a new property in the country so the Troy-Bilt string trimmer will come in very handy for her as soon as it arrives. I hope that she enjoys it as much as I have over the past few weeks that I have been using this straight shaft string trimmer.
To recap the discussions, it was a close race to determine the favorite features of the TB675 EC grass trimmer as related in the comment section of the previous thread. In the end the 4-cycle engine edged out the cordless engine starter as the favorite feature of the new machine.
There were also some great comments made regarding the advantages of this Troy-Bilt grass trimmer. Several readers pointed out the environmental advantages that a 4-cycle engine provides through less polluting emissions and a quieter running engine.
Shayne shared a great tip related to the routine maintenance of a gas trimmer:
“As far as tips on maintaining a gas trimmer, I can’t emphasize enough the importance of fresh gas when dealing with a small engine. Most common problems that you’ll run into with a trimmer’s engine can be avoided by only using fresh, clean gas, and you’ll get more power and easier starts, too. Plus, as a bonus, because it’ll burn more completely in the engine, there’s less pollution, too!”
Troy-Bilt offers similar advice on the importance of always using fresh gasoline in your gas powered outdoor equipment to improve both performance and longevity. I had noticed a sample of STA-BIL that came packaged with the grass trimmer that I received and an insert containing the recommendation to always use a fuel stabilizer to ensure that your fuel will remain fresh up to a year, compared to only a month or two without it.
Thanks again to everyone who read the Troy-Bilt grass trimmer review or left a comment for the contest, and congratulations to Amanda, the winner of a new TB675 EC Gas Trimmer from Troy-Bilt.
