Is the plug clean and correctly gapped?
Is the air filter clean?
Has been oiled when it should?
Is the choke in the correct position?
Has it got fresh fuel?
Did you cross your right toe and hold your tongue against your upper molars?

Dads do give some pretty solid life advice at times.

^nice!

does anyone know how to get 2-stroke hedgetrimmers running? I've one that stopped the other day after being presented with a hedge to trim & hasn't run since. Checked the obvious stuff like spark, fuel & compression so can only assume it's become possessed, and needs to be dis-possessed.
I nearly left the thing at the roadside this evening, but have a faint suspicion that there's only one tiny thing that needs changing, in order for it to run properly again.

suggestions welcome...

Some of this stuff has an emergency stop that can get knocked sometimes. (think of like a chain brake on kickback with a chainsaw). Usually it's just for the cutting bits - but some weirder ones kill the engine as well.

If it's got one - have you checked whether its set so it's allowed to run/cut things.

Sounds silly but... decarb the exhaust system and port. Check blade moves freely.
