Question about Poulan Pro Pp125 25cc Gas Straight Shaft Attachment Capable String Trimmer

Open Question

Attachment problem Runs Great but when trying to change attachments the last one came off just fine but when I went to attach the trimmer, as well as the others, they would not slide all the way in. When I give it the gas you can see the drive shaft spin; however if you tilt the engine back & forth you hear a "clop" type sound. Thanks Bosssmann

SOURCE: no power when attachment is on

If the carb is set too lean it will run and high speed, however once you put load on the engine there will not be enough fuel in reserve to icrease the power, try richen the mixture on the H screw with the attachment on.

Trimmer runs but the head wont turn

It may be that the drive shaft is broken, or not engaged to the engine. Make sure the trimmer attachment is locked all the way onto the shaft coming from the engine. If it still doesn't work, check by seeing if any of the other attachments work when you put them on. If they do, you know the drive shaft in the trimmer attachment is probably broken.

too much drag on the edger, try putting some oil or lubricant spray where the edger spins on the attachment.

Trimmer runs good but does not cut grass

I have had a similar problem with an edging attachment. The socket that fit onto the shaft was worn, and the shaft would just spin, creating a lot of heat right there, but very little movement, and it would completely stall when you tried to use it implement, even though the moter still ran just fine. The cure, I'm sorry to say, was to replace the implement.
Best regards, --W/D--

Engine runs great, no power at head, drive shafts not broken.

The drive shaft is not seated into position properly or the shaft has broken.

Have you had the shaft off recently? If so, take the shaft off again and try to seat the shaft as you gently pull on the rope. If you need further assistance, just let me know.

When I add an attachment to my Craftsmen trimmer, they won't spin

When you add the attachments the drive shaft must be aligned perfectly and the connecting tubes fully inserted. Otherwise they will not drive. The drive shavt has 4 flat faces on it and the recepticle for the drive shaft also has 4 faces on it. If they are not mated correctly nothing will work. The drive tube must be fully inserted...... and aligned.

The motor want turn the attachments i.e. string on the trimmer or blade on the edger

there is definitely a problem in the drive shaft. check to make sure there's nothing blocking the mal and female ends. if there is, clean it out and lubricate it so that the male will attach to the female slot. also check to see that both ends are not stripped. if the motor portion of it is stripped, which most liekly is out culprit, then it needs to be replaced, or you need to get a new trimmer. if you do, i recommend the Ryobi model CS26 gas trimmer.if the atachment shaft is stripped, the the attachment needs replacement. if you replace the motor portion you need not lubricate the attatchment slot. if the attachment is stripped, it needs to be replaced, but im quite sure the female end in the motor shaft is our problem. it could also be broken inside the shaft. make sure nothing falls out if you hold the attatching ends to the ground.

Thihl HL75 hedge trimmer engine will not run at full speed

Remove the cutting attachment, insert a screwdriver in to the shaft receptor and it should operate smooth with a slight bit of friction. if not then check the blade bolts and make sure the blades move freely. Lubricate the blades and the gearbox regularly. If the attachment end is good then turn the driveshaft by hand (with attachment still off shaft). If this too moves freely then go to the clutch.
