I have a similar machine made by
Huscvarna. Bought it new about 10 years
ago. It has seen a lot of use and has
been trouble free.
Those type with the sholder harness are
great.

Getting back to your tank leak, if the J.B. Weld doesn't work, or you try to plastic weld it and that doesn't work, I wonder if you couldn't adapt a replacement tank from an Echo or other brand of grass trimmer.

I have used epoxy putty on plastic tanks. Very easy to put where you need it. As permanent a repair as your gonna get .

Is that the type that comes in a plastic tube the size of a roll of dimes? It has a core in it so you just need the stuff so it's all one color and it's ready to go.

I had to look it up, but JB Weld has a product specifically for plastics called PLASTICWELD. I have not used it, but it sounds interesting.

FWIW, I use my zero-turn mower to clear minor brush, high weeds, etc. It makes short work of them with little effort on my part. Smile

I had a leak in the fuel tank on my Stihl chainsaw. An epoxy patch lasted only until the fuel was added again, then it came right off. However, I picked up a $14 plastic weld kit from Harbor Freight and that successfully patched the tank. I had no more issues as long as I continued to own that unit.

What did this kit consist of?
