Q: Where can you get replacement parts for the engine?
by Holloman from Pennsylvania on July 03, 2016

A: Holloman,

Blue Max lists this small engine as their own brand. This being said, you will need to reach out to Blue Max directly at 800-348-5004 for further assistance with engine replacement parts.

Q: Does this unit have a solid shaft or cable?
by Jan Jeffers from Tennessee on May 16, 2015

A: This unit would have a cable.
by Marissa, Product Expert
Q: What attachments will fit?

by Jason from Georgia on March 11, 2014

A: Jason - the Blue Max 52623 is not compatible with other attachments. This is strictly a trimmer and brush cutter. That yellow knob on the shaft does disconnect the two sections of the shaft, but this is only used if you want to remove the bicycle style handle from the upper shaft.

The Blue Max 52623 may be economically priced, but it shares many of the same attributes you will find in "higher end" hand held brush cutters.

With the Blue Max 52623 you have the option of using this as a string trimmer, or utilizing the dual purpose guard to transform the unit into a heavy duty brush-cutter. The blade is included with this model.

The Blue Max 52623 is equipped with an ergonomically designed bicycle style handle bar that also helps to reduce vibration. ... more

Best For The Money
I would put this trimmer against any big name brand. I have used most of them and this does the job just as good. Starts on 2 or 3 pulls and runs great. I wasn't sure after reading the bad reviews but I decided if I get one season out of it, it's worth the price. In my opinion the bad reviews are from operator error.

So far I have no problems. It has a huge motor so I only use about 1/2 to 3/4 throttle and combined with the 1.5 quart tank it doesn't need filled often. It's heavy but it's a... more
Pros: Price, Reliable, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy

Worst Purchase Ever!!!!!!
Trimmer worked great for 3 times. THREE TIMES now it want crank. Who knows what is wrong with it but my grass is still growing
Marissa, the String Trimmer Expert
Product Expert
Tony,
There are only a few possible causes that I am aware of which could be the cause of the engine not starting. This could be due to a fouled spark plug, too much gas or oil in the mixture, a dirty air filter, or there is an improper carburetor adjustment (this can be determined as mentioned in the Owners Manual).

If these are not the possible causes, unfortunately this unit will need to go to a Blue Max service center. Please contact Blue Max directly at 800-348-5004 as they will be able to troubleshoot and assist further.

A Monster
This weed/brush trimmer is one powerful tool. It easily chopped down 2- to 3-inch diameter brush in no time. Smaller brush, it sliced through like butter. I got the chainsaw blade with it. Together, they are a unbeatable value.

Everything arrived as described except that the handle bars were shaped in an odd configuration. Had to replace bars. Motor has plenty of power and starts easy.

Works Pretty Well.
I put the trimmer together in about 15 minutes, mixed up some fuel in the supplied container and after a pull or two she started right up. I put the strap over my shoulder and started to trim some grass. When I gave it some gas she would bog right down. It would run great on partial choke. This trimmer has gobs of power and I can't wait to do some brush clearing under my trees.

I have been doing some research on the net and it appears that the carb has a high speed plug that needs to... more
Pros: Price, Durable, Features, Lots Of Power

A Few Problems
Shipping arrived quick, fired up right out of the box. Handlbars could use a better design, I bent and altered the ones that came with the trimmer to fit my grip and stance. The engine bogs when throttled wide open, and I see no gas/air mixture screws on the carb to adjust for this.

The line spool is very stiff and the line does not feed properly. The line breaks off inside the holes in the spool, and I have to take it apart to feed the line through again. If you buy one of these, you're... more
Pros: Price, Easy To Use
Cons: Throttle And Line Feeding Problems

Already Needs Carburetor Adjustment !
Con: Used this Brush cutter once and now it's not revving up past 2500 RPM. I hope it's just a carburetor adjustment issue but it has the pressed on cap over the adjustment screw that will need to be removed.

Con:The on/off switch couldn't be in a worse position. Constantly bumping it to the off position.

Con: A little Heavy and somewhat difficult to balance. ( I am 215lbs and work out 5 days a week ).
Maybe I need to adjust the handlebars back.

Con: trimmer head is useless. Doesn't... more

Heavy Duty
I wanted a trimmer that would be around more than a few months. That would change out to cut brush and do all I wanted it to do.
This trimmer will hold you to the fire and I think will be in it for the long haul.
