Need replacement bushing for ryobi cs30 17" curve shaft trimmer hopefully locally

I have a ryobi cs 30 model #ry30020b---serial #ah312068 trimmer looking for the upper drive shaft bushing (plastic). When the weed eater is running the shaft gets extremely hot and even melts the plastic of the handle. HELP.

SOURCE: lost manual for troy bilt weed eater mod#tb514cs 4cycle

I didn't find that exact one either, but recently had to work on my Yard Man 4-Cycle Straight Shaft and used a Troy-Bilt manual for a similar trimmer - worked great.
If you don't find yours at this site, maybe a similar one will work. It looks like the difference is the TB525 receives attachments. If you're trying to fix something right now, here's the manual for that one until you find yours:

SOURCE: how do I replace the pull cord on a ryobi #ss30 weed trimmer

You need a long skinny T25 torque driver (sold in a pack at Lowe's with 3 other sizes.)

Take off the 4 screws in the back to reveal the piston. Get a wooden dowel (or a wooden spoon if your wife isn't around) and stick it in to the piston to block it from spinning.

Now take that T25 and stick it in to the front pulley (cone shaped silver item that is preventing the housing from coming off) turn to the left and it should come off.

That should come off to reveal about a 1"x1.5" piece with a spring wrapped around it. That can also turn to the left and come off with an adjustable wrench or pliers.

Once that is off the housing should come away and you'll be able to get at the pull cord after removing 4 more T25 screws.

SOURCE: replacing fuel lines on ryobi weed eater,need

This is an ongoing issue for users, and rightfully so. Small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then pushes any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Years ago on 2-stroke trimmers, primers were not even used,...you choked the carb with a slide lever and gravity let fuel enter the carb from above...a few pulls, a "pop"...slide it off of choke and away you went.
If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

Will only stay running on full choke


Your fuel is likely stale (replace all of the fuel, including the fuel in the gas can that you used to fill the trimmer), and/or your air filter needs to be cleaned.

Bushing is worn out. You will need to replace the shaft. Fairly inexpensive.

New Ryobi trimmer putters out at full throttle


Absolutely it can. Weight can slow it down, Friction can slow it down,. There are many things that will do exactly what you are talking but the #1 thing would be a Gummed up Carburator. EVERYONE is having the same problems right now.

RYOBI Model ELT1100QFA. The lower shaft gets hot during use. I believe the lubricated packing is missing on the curved portion. Where might we find a packing material in Sydney, AU?


I have pulled a couple of these apart; they use a blue plastic lubricating blocks to keep the flexible shaft away from the shaft wall.

I found with two different shafts that they disintegrate with a few hours usage. Tried grease but the shaft drive still failed. I tried talking to Ryobi who tell me that there is no separate parts in the assembly (and parts drawing confirms a single part number for the entire shaft assembly. Took them months before they eventually gave me one off the shop floor.

The 1100QFA would be a very good multi-function if they fitted bearings or some other solution.

I have a Ryobi RLT 30CESA with the strimmer attachment. What do I need to fit a Brushcutter blade to it


I would not put a brushcutter blade on this unit. The curved shaft quik disconnect may not hold up to the shock torque created by the brushblade. It may damage the drive shaft since it is a curved shaft quik disconnect model. You may have to purchase a straight shaft trimmer to get that job done.

What size line do I need for a Ryobi ELT1000FA Trimmer


A good Rule-of-Thumb for homeowner trimmers is:

Curved shaft trimmers need to run .065-.080 diameter line while straight shaft trimmers can handle .095-.115 diameter.

Keep in mind the kind of use the machine gets and match line diameter accordingly. Larger line may fit into the spool, but the power and RPM that's available to you will suffer because of the extra weight and wind resistance.
Hope this helps!

Replacing Drive Shaft for a Ryobi 725r


The lower flex shaft should cost around $40, unless you order it online and have to pay shipping. You should be able to get one from your local MTD dealer. (Ryobi is owned by MTD)
