Homelite 24v cordless lawn mower.
TAUNTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- I bought a Homelite 24v cordless lawn mower last year. In the 1st season I used it, it had a power surge that melted the key to the handle. Seeing it was still under warranty, I returned it & got another ... read full review5 Replies - Latest reply on 11/16/2013
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- I bought a Homelite Weed Trimmer and after few uses noticed the engine would not start. Called customer service and walla it can only be repaired by dealer. Did some study and found out it needs carburator adjustent and when tried to adjust carburator noticed they had special screws that needed special tool from Homelite. This company is a rip off. Carburator adjustment by dealer only, special weird screws that can only be tightened by homelite and dealer, parts only available through homelite, in the mean time I can't trim and care for my lawn. What a miserable company product rip off. Extremely. dissatisfied1 Replies - Latest reply on 05/27/2012Add reply
Of all the gasoline lawn mowers and trimmers I have used down through the years, this handheld "weed wacker" is the most difficult to start of all of them and I have not been able to start it this season ... read full review9 Replies - Latest reply on 06/04/2011
ANDERSON, SOUTH CAROLINA -- First, I purchased a leaf blower only a couple of years ago. It has always been hard to start and now will not run for more than 30 seconds. When checking on the warranty and service, I find it is probably cheaper to throw
it away and purchase another one.
Today, I bought a chain saw. I know something about them and knew I needed bar oil. No where on the box indicated that it wasn't already some in the box. Now, I need to go back to the store and purchase some.
The Homelite web site does not give a customer a place to lodge a complaint. Therefore, I am using this web site and the BBB for Anderson, South Carolina to file this complaint.
I own three Homelite tools. I have had a Homelite chainsaw for over 15 years and it still works well. I have a Homelite string trimmer (less than a year old) that is very hard to start. If you are lucky enough to get it started, you have to run it on Half Choke. I spent 65 dollars on it but still have the problem. It won't start at all now. I also own a homelite leaf blower and the starting problems are the same as the trimmer.

I have had the blower since July. Needless to say I probably won't purchase any more Homelite tools.
I bought a vac attack blower from home depot. It did not start properly. It took about 15 minutes to get it started. I took it back to home depot and they exchanged it for another one. This one is just as bad. Today I spent at least 30 minutes trying to start this blower, but no luck. I threw it in the trash. 3 Replies - Latest reply on 06/20/2007Add reply
