Here is a site where you can date what year it is via your serial number. http://hmfind.com/JAC/JacobsenSerialNumberFinder.aspx

If you have any trouble getting it going, post up or send me a pm and I'll do my best to give you some pointers on getting it going.

Fuel mixture should be 16:1 (unless otherwise stated somewhere on the machine) mixed with sae 30 weight non detergent oil.

Looks to be about the same vintage as my Jacobson lawnmower. Same engine and the same Jacobson Power Tools tag on the handle.

Wow, so thats the grandpa of today's wheeled weedeaters. I would like to see what some of the first handheld weedeaters look like.

We had one when I was a kid. Just an electric motor with a metal blade. It worked okay, but the blade got dull fast, and it did a job on siding and fence posts. It was a big improvement when they went to string trimmers.

that was easy...ser# 86A 4342 = model year 1962...

gonna pull the carb when i get a chance...i did clean a lot of gunk out of the tank and lines...enough to get fuel flowing...i havent tried feeding the cylinder yet...so many other projects ... how far can i get into the carb without needing a kit...im broke and out of work with an injury,so maybe i can swing a can of gumout,but cant start buying parts right now...

meanwhile...open to offers on this gem,as well as all my other treasures...
