How To Replace The Drive Shaft On A String Trimmer




What do you think about this video?

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. 

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

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

luiscuevas120372: This video help me a lot thanks

kodibass: you made that look so easy, thanks

trackie250: Mark, how do I get the broken end of the shaft out of the far end of the tube?

eReplacementParts.com: Many trimmer manufactures offer their own grease for this repair so check your owners manual first. If not, a general purpose chassis grease or wheel & bearing grease seems to work fine. Thanks for watching, -Mark

Ajcares43: How do you take the shaft off from the end the line assembly is on?

504futbolfan: eReplacementParts is the s#%t! Great vid which saved me cash and downtime.

48busman: What kind of grease do you use? Great vid

joe bloggs: The motor on my strimmer is loose from the shaft and the tool vibrates very badly when in use, the screws are both tight. Any ideas.

Typey1: Good video thanks

boogerhead0: Hi Mark, what's the new spring part number for that specific machine in your video?

chattyboy16: thanks

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

Russell Atwell: Great video,very well done!

pqxxedf: Can't you use a screwdriver or whatever to push it into the shaft and let it fall out on the motor end?

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

eReplacementParts.com: You will need to remove the tube end on near the trimmer head if possible. If the end is not removable then you will likely need to replace both the cable and the shaft. Good luck with your repair, -Mark

ILoveUberHaxorNova: Hey eReplacements. I bought a new head for my craftsman weed eater and i think it is too heavy for it because it keep stalling. Could turning up the idle fix this problem?
