How To Replace The Drive Shaft On A String Trimmer




What do you think about this video?

Elsa Fernandez: Hi, how would I fix the part where the thread spool goes? My machine is no longer turning/moving /cutting. It has a brand new string. It's a black and decker weed whacker. Thank you so much.

John Dumas: Could someone tell me please. exactly the correct length of the drive cable for a PP135? And possibly a picture of the correct one?

I had mine apart and stored until I moved but can not find the shaft. Someone gave me one saying that they basically were all the same but it appears this one is too short.

I'd prefer not to start whacking the tube itself if I don't have to so I wish to make sure of the length and the part the shaft itself slides into and then fit into the tube,

Thank you,
John

Julia Sok: Hello. I would like to know the dimensions of oil seal crankshaft or where can I find this information. Thanks in advance. (I am asking as of now trimmer is nor right next to me(another city) but i need to buy spare part.

Marty Kelly (Makaveli): Thanks Mark! Quick question though. What do you call the ignition wire connectors that you separated? I am was assembling a new trimmer for my mum and found that one of the connectors was missing. Just need correct name to ensure I order correct one. Thanks again.

Malcolm Miles: your videos are always clear and direct. Thanks for the help!

Edward Bugash: My Echo GT-225 seems to spit out quite a bit of oil while using, is there a seal or gasket that's bad??? Is there a video on how to fix??

Brandon Bridges: i am having a hard time finding the driveshaft part for my trimmer.  Its a homelite UT22600 doesnt appear to be on your site or I am missing it. Any advice?

Antonio Biggs: I have to replace the flex shaft coupler on an Echo power pruner (pole saw) ppt-266h, is it pretty much the same as doing this?

cameron Moore: Very helpful


Leslie Aussem: great video!

Daniel Kirkman: how do you replace the shaft on a split boom weed-eater?

Snow Angels Contracting: Thanks for the video that you posted. It gives me an idea on how to repair my drive shaft string trimmer. Good work.

Richard Moore: If you're replacing the shaft it means its broke you didn't show how to get the broken part out duh

Stephen Hughes: Thanks I had no idea its all trial and error to get the drive shaft in place! I had a fear I had to take apart the carburettor as well!

onfireee81: I don't use curve shafts but on straight shafts isn't it easier just to loosen the 2 hex bolts at gear case assembly instead of taking the power head off? Just asking 

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!
