Gas-powered Weed Eater push mowers contain two springs that control the performance of the carburetor. The longer, thicker spring is popularly known as the primary spring along with also the shorter, thinner spring is known as the secondary spring. Both springs work together in concert to control the speed of the mower’s engine during idle and operation. Installing these springs correctly is crucial to make certain that your Weed Eater mower’s engine operates as it needs to be.
