Open Question

I have model 316.796170 4-cycle gas trimmer and it will barely spin the line. I have an edger and pole saw. The problem exists with all attachments. So I believe theproblem is in the upper drive shaft somewhere. the clutch drum fits with the upper cable end good, so maybe it's the upper cables lower end. Did I miss anything? Suggestions?

SOURCE: 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)

SOURCE: the trimmer head will not spin under power

The drive shaft is not set all the way into position. You will have to take the front casing off, as well as the lower part of the shaft, and work it into position that way. You may have to play with it a little bit.

SOURCE: Ref: Stihl FS46 string trimmer. Broken Flex shaft.

Remove orange sheild,remove single screw holding head in shaft then grab head with pliers and twist side to side until complete head is free.You should then be able to grab part of shaft.On power head loosen screws {about one turn each} that hold two white case halves near trigger,I think there are four,then there is a single torx screw on the bottom of lower case half in the middle that must be taken out to allow tube to be removed.Romove flexshaft from top.Check 4 plastic burnt to flexshaft,if there is you must replace tube liner as well,usally around bent part of tube the liner will go bad.

I have a RYOBI pole saw that starts fine, but there is a disconnect between engine and saw blade. The blade will not turn.


I assume you have the Ryobi powerhead with the multiple tool shaft (can use it with an edger, blower, trimmer, and pole saw) If so, does the powerhead square drive spin when you squeeze the throttle trigger? Does the chain move freely on the saw end when not connected? Is the attachment fully inserted into the powerhead shaft (small spring-loaded button should pop out of the hole when fully inserted.
