Why is my petrol-powered hedge trimmer smoking excessively?
Smoke from the exhaust outlet
While using your hedge trimmer, you may notice light grey smoke from the exhaust outlet (muffler).
Reasons for this could be:
- An incorrect fuel mixture, usually when there is too much oil in the mixture; make sure that you always use the correct fuel mixture for your hedge trimmer.
- Using an old or stale fuel and oil mixture; always use a fresh fuel and oil mixture; we recommend using Husqvarna fuel and oil for your hedge trimmer.

If the issue persists after using the correct, clean fuel and oil, and the air filter is cleaned, please contact the authorised dealer.
