Craftsman hedge trimmer fuel mix

I bought this Craftsman hedge trimmer at a garage sale, but don't know the fuel mix. Looks like a chainsaw with hedgetrimer blades. M# 358.795620. Anybody know?

You can get an operators manual from sears.com. Part # is
530-081187 ($2.99).

Your mix is likely 32 or 40:1, but best to get the manual.

Hello: Fyxxez

You also have the option of using a synthetic oil. One advantage of using this type of oil, one package covers all oil mixture ratios into one blend. Follow the manufacturers package instructions.

After cleaning it up I saw 40:1 on the case.

Thumbs up

40:1 is pretty common and sounds right.

"358" in the model # should be a Poulan/Weedeater made product. You could also try them for some help.

Is there a way to sharpen the blade on this thing?
