Engine/shaft stopped working. Need to fix Ryobi trimmer.

I was trimming grass with my Ryobi 2-cycle gas trimmer. The cutting attachment hit an exposed tree root. I heard a clunk. Its drive mechanism is obviously no longer connected to the drive shaft. The engine won't start. The cutting line freely rotates, and the starter engine cord as no resistance. There must be a shear pin on the shaft, but there is no instruction on what to do in the owners manual. How do I fix this?

Thanks, Dex

Hi, I have a Ryobi brush cutter and the engine has a tendency to move up and down the shaft. It also rotates around the shaft

Somewhere there is a shear pin that attaches the cutter head to the drive line, when you hit the tree you sheared off the pin (safety devise) . You need to locate it and replace it, be sure you use a manfactureres shear pin. Thn again there might not be a shear pi in that case you have probably ruined your trimmer. The best way to find out is to call your ryobi dealer tell him you have a Ryobi model so and so and ask if this model has a shear pin.

I own a Troy-Bilt 425cs string trimmer with multiple add-on attachments. The unit works fine for string trimming, brush cutting, and cultivating. However, it will not properly power my edger attachment. ...


The power edger attatchment may have a slightly different coupling size on it than the other attatchments. Also, do a good inspection of the power head unit's coupling at the EZ LINK connector. Maybe the head unit connector is getting hot over time, due to a lack of lube, and expanding internally, causing slippage in the connection to the edger attatchment. Inspect all that you can.

Are you running a gas/oil mix? If you are try making sure you didnt add too much oil (will usually smoke) and will possibly stall. Your air fuel mixture may be off and need adjusting too.

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.
