Question about Ryobi 18V Hedge Trimmer
I pulled the blades off a Ryobi EHT700 electric hedge trimmer because they kept jamming. Seven 3 mm thick washers/ spacers fell out when I got the blades off. Now I'm not sure where the washers/ spacers go. There are four parts to the blades - Ushaped strength bar, blade 1, blade 2 and flat strip. Do the washers/spacers go between blades 1&2 or between U shaped bar and blade 1 ? I cannot find a manual to see how to put it back together.
The main problem was why did trimmer decide to start jamming ? I could not see any worn parts when I removed blades.
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
The blades are stuck , i spray my trimmer with wd40 before every use to keep them juicy you should too. also sometimes if you hit a large stick it will put a divot in the blade cause ing it to stick. as for putting it together, find some one who can do it without directions. but when you use them next make sure you soak em good with wd40 or something if you dont i guarantee they will always stick. wd40 willl not hurt any shrubbery, as ive been doing it for years.

Fergusson I'm sure you have fixed your blades by now, but I hate it when in desperation ya turn to the internet only to have someone waste your time with a non answer.When putting your blades back together, the small bolt and spacer stay together, going back into the side of the blade with the slot. The nut goes on the other side, snuggly. This way the slot and the control of the blade are controlled by the spacer. The inside cam and these spacers control the blades back and forth motion.
