How To Replace The Drive Shaft On A String Trimmer




What do you think about this video?

ruzzkon65: very usefull tutor for me as neubi..thanks

Sonya Centeno: I work for Sears Lawn and Garden Technical phone help and I just wanted to say thank you for facilitating my ongoing learning process that is not afforded me at work. We get a few weeks training and a few weeks on the phone training on then we are expected to trouble shoot and tell people how to repair their L&G equipment like a pro. Thanks to videos like these Sears customers have at least one fairly learned advocate for them when all goes wrong. Keep up the good work!

John Fritz: Thanks Mark for the video explaining how to replace the drive shaft on a string trimmer.
It answered several questions I had about this repair.

Vonnie Vanderau: appreciated the helpfulness of your video. I have a question .  Can I replace a curved shaft on an Echo GT-225 with a straight shaft without causing myself any problems?

franks67: You should make a vid on how to replace the bearings on an Echo weed eater. I have an Echo srm260. And  the guys at the shop said they had to replace them. How does one know when your bearings are going out on your trimmer??

Anthony Hernandez: If the original shaft is broken, how do you remove the bottom piece?

Mohamad Ferdaws: great job
would you know why my pull robe wouldn't retract back to it's original position

Akmal Dawson: Hi, when replacing old gear or bearing grease from a petrol string trimmer gear case/gearbox, how much (ml) of grease would you recon to pump in the gear case?

Akmal Dawson: Hi, love your easy step by step tutorials, please make a video on greasing the gear case on a string trimmer. thanks

youtubificationizer: WOULD BE NICE TO KNOW HOW TO PUT THE STRING TRIMMER PART BACK ON TO THE DRIVESHAFT

sissy murphy: what if the shaft broke off at the bottom .Do you take the bottom off to take out the broken piece that is still in there

juan espinoza: nice way to do important things. good job easy top learn 

seniorsurveyor: I should of added, my trimmer is a Weed Eater FeatherLite. I have had it since 2003. Carb rebuilt twice, gas lines replaced twice. Still works well, used only around my home.

seniorsurveyor: I do appreciate you taking the time to create and post this helpful video, and it did help me somewhat. However, you make no mention of what to do in the event the trimmer head brass pulley drops down from the encasing shaft, allowing the internal drive shaft  to disengage from the pulley head. I found no information on this particular problem (which is why I started searching) so, I merely used a cold chisel to crimp the encasing shaft around the bass pulley head, after cleaning the nut piece attached to the bass pulley head, and sliding the brass pulley head into the encasing shaft. It works! Now comes the test of time. Again, thank you. SeniorSurveyor

Reaz Mohammed: what grease did you use on the new drive cable?

nick Yates: this is great!
I never knew it was this easy!

Tony M: I have a Gt225 as well. When you lubricate the shaft every 3 months or 90 hours, the manual indicates that this operation is performed by removing the cutter head and removing the shaft that way. The shaft comes completely out of the machine. You can replace it that way as well. The manual calls for Power BlendX grease, part number 91014' or any lithium based grease. 

sneezie22: Apparently not the first shaft Mark has greased before insertion !

Dennis Peoples: how to remove the head from the GT225

hocuspocusjokerride: thats what you get with a curved shaft weedeater, them things are not worth a crap, straight shaft weedeaters are the only kind to buy
