CUB CADET BROKEN SHAFT

I HAVE A 4 STROKE CUB CADET WEED EATER WITH INTERCHANGEABLE SHAFTS (SAW, TRIMMER), WHICH IS LESS THAN A YEAR OLD. THE SHAFT THAT IS CONNECTED TO THE ENGINE LOOKS LIKE IT IS STRIPPED. INSTEAD OF BEING SQUARED, IT IS NOW ROUNDED AND WIIL NOT OPERATE MY ATTACHMENTS (IT JUST SPINS). IS THERE A FIX TO THIS PROBLEM OR DO I NEED TO JUST BUY A NEW ONE? AND IF I NEED TO BUY A NEW ONE, WHICH ONE WITH INTERCHANGEABLE ATTCHEMENTS? PLEASE, ADVICE IS NEEDED. THANKS IN ADVANCE.

    I have the exact same problem! I took the first cub cadet back and had it exchanged for the same mdoel, but it did the same thing. I wasn't even working it hard, I just used the hedge trimmer and it stripped in less than an hour of usage! I exchanged it for a new one and hooked up the lawn edger which also quit working now. I looked at the shaft of the accessories and they have been rounded off and the shaft inside is rounded off!

    The zinc alloy accessory drive socket on the upper flex shaft of my CC2025 stripped in one year of light use. I made a new steel one, and it lasted about four years. I now have an Echo, but need to re-do the CC fix bc the accessory shafts are different diameters. All this would be unneccesary if the drive socket were made of tougher material.

What kind of oil do i use to mix with gas for my Poulan gas trimmer. Can i use WD30 motor oil or does it have to specifically say its for 2stroke engines? the ratio on the trimmer says 40:1 so i assume...


DO NOT USE MOTOR OIL!!!

There is a special 2-stroke engine oil mix that you can purchase at various stores that have outdoor equipment or you can also find mix at Walmart. There are instructions for proper mixing on the bottle.

Remember not to put 2-stroke mixed fuel in your lawn mower unless it is also 2-stroke (rare). And the converse is also true, do not put your 4-stroke lawn mower fuel in your 2-stroke weed eater.

If this is really helpful, please rate.
