History of Whipper Snippers: As early as 1960, Echo introduced the first brush cutter in Japan. George Ballas of Houston, Texas, came up with the idea for the U.S. string trimmer in the early 1970s while watching the rotating brushes in an automatic car wash.
A tin can bolted to an edger was rigged with a heavy-duty fishing line, which he attached to a tin can. “Weed Whacker”, as Ballas called it, ate the grass and weeds that grew around trees.

Tuning your whipper snipper
- Warming up an engine with a cold start will result in an overly rich run when the engine is warmed up. Manipulate the throttle if the engine does not idle (“blip” the throttle; do not run the engine continuously at high speed).
- It’s also possible to modify idle speed by rotating the adjustment screw one-quarter of an inch clockwise, or anti-counterclockwise, to increase idle speed, or anti-clockwise to decrease idling speed. You should set the pace so that the engine idles at its maximum speed without using the clutch. Don’t adjust your idle speed so that your cutter attachment revolves when you release the throttle.
- To lean or richen the high-speed mixture, spin the adjustment screw “IN” (clockwise) or “OUT” (anticlockwise). When you notice a slowing engine, turn the screw OUT until the engine is running at full throttle. As soon as you do this, the engine should start to run better. To get the machine to its maximum speed, keep twisting the screw inwards. Turn the screw OUT by an eighth (or a quarter) of a turn to increase engine cooling.
When determining the “factory setting” of a particular adjustment screw, it must be twisted “IN” (right / clockwise) until the screw is wholly seated (but not tight). Make this setting when the screw “OUT” (rotate left/anti-clockwise) comes fully turned.
- High-Speed Mixture – approximately two rotations.
- Idle Speed – around 5.
Base tuning on the factory settings. After resetting all adjustment screws to their factory settings, test the engine before making any additional changes. Install the screwdriver in place and then rotate it.
The four-stroke engine
Owners can only adjust the idle speed of 4-stroke engines. Go to an authorised service centre to get the engine tuned.
Adjusting the carburettor
When the throttle is disengaged and controlling the idle speed, there may be a lack of air/fuel mixture when the throttle is set too low. Idle speeds that are too high can cause the cutting attachment to rotate, which is unsafe and should never be permitted to happen.
