Open Question

I have a Ryobi 790 R trimmer and the upper drive shaft broke right above the center connecting hub and I was wondering if the hub came with the upper dirive shaft or if it was part of the upper drive shaft. If so I think that the part number is 75304344. Thanks

check both ends of shaft, they're usually a hex or torx head. sometimes the can strip or even snap off. if you find noticable damage replace the shaft

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)

Ryobi weed eater upper and lower shaft spins, but head doesn't spin, why?


If not a clutched model, likely the flexible drive shaft is broken. Check 1st to insure the engine head is firmly positioned into the aluminum shaft case. If it is remove at the engine, disconnect the cable as necessary and pull out the shaft for close inspection.

The connection between the two shaft has a molded lead piece that the upper half is suppose to match with the attachment. If it not square you will need to replace the lower shaft.

I broke the flex drive shaft but can't remove the head to get out the broken shaft piece. I got the big part of the shaft out from the top. the bump head has been replaced by the kind that you cut 2 pieces...


The flex shaft drive you are referring to is only sold as a assy that I am aware of. You can try www.partstree.com for the replacement shaft assy. you are refering to, however you may find out by the time you buy a new shaft assy you may be money ahead just buying a new trimmer.

My shaft broke


Well it sounds like you have already done the homework. now the choice really is yours. either buy the part and install it or get a different trimmer.

if everything else is still good I would buy the part, lube it up and use it.

The pull rope broke on my ryobi 705r/725r gas trimmer. I have all the screws off but it seems to be held on by the center shaft that spins. What do I do now?


I have the same issue of clutch removal on a Ryobi 725r. Actually the clutch finally died after many years of use.
Instead of using a screwdriver to hold the piston I recommend using a piece of clothesline rope. It will be easier on the internal components and won't scratch up the cylinder walls or piston. Just be sure to leave a small amount hanging out of the spark plug hole so you can pull it out afterward.
