Why are my petrol-powered grass trimmer and brushcutter smoking excessively?
Smoke from the exhaust outlet
While using your grass trimmer or brushcutter, 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 to always use the correct fuel mixture for your grass trimmer or brushcutter.
- Using old or stale fuel and oil mixture; always use a fresh fuel and oil mixture; we recommend using Husqvarna fuel and oil for your grass trimmer or brushcutter.

- Dirty and restricted air filter; make sure that the air filter on your grass cutter or brushcutter is clean and not restricted.
