Homelite Weed-Whacker: throttle cable


The throttle cable on my Homelite Bandit SX-135 broke.
Anybody know where I can get a replacement part? I'm told there's none available locally.
How to home-make a suitable replacement?
Thanx, Puddin'

Did you already check the Homelite place ? http://www.homelite.com/parts/index.htm
I fixed 'temporarily" the same problem on my "Trim n edge" twisting a short piece of sturdy wire with two needle-nose pliers and lots of patience ( the cable was broken right at the end on the motor side).
Depending on where yours broke you can be more or less lucky. Buying a new cable of the same size from a bike shop and doing some adjustments should also work.
Good luck

Nope. Figgered Homelite was a goner.
Hit on the site this morn. Contractor is there, but I couldn't find hide nor hair of sx-135.

Mine broke right in the middle.

Good idea.
Mine's got a tiny segment of cylinder at one end like a motorcycle or maybe bicycle cable.
Much Thanx! Puddin'
