Question about Garden
I experienced the same problem with mine. The collar ring split making the pole saw useless. I am one of those who can basically fix anything you can put into my hands......
I have the solution for you! Loosen the collar ring and ensure the matching edges (where it is split) are clean & dry.....(no oil or residue).
Use JB-Weld (available in most department stores, hardware stores and auto suuplies) to repair the collar ring. Use the standard type epoxy (not the fast drying type). You will also need one other item to keep the ring from splitting again. The collar ring has a 2-inch diameter. Go to a hardware store or an auto supply store and ask for a 2-1/2 inch stainless worm clamp. Be sure to get the wider type that is about one-half inch across the stainless band. The clamp is typically used to connect radiator hoses on automotive engines. Make sure the clamp you get is stainless. Unscrew the clamp using safety in mind.....they typically have a large "straight slot" screw; using a screwdriver is a bit dangerous especially if you have to tighten it very tight. If you have access to a nut driver or a small quality socket set, these tools will enable you to tighten the worm clamp very tight. Do not force the collar ring back into service for a few days to ensure that the epoxy has had plenty of time to cure. I repaired mine a few years ago and it still works great!
Please send me a reply once the surgery and recovery is complete.
The total cost for materials is about $9-$10.
I hope this fixes your collar ring for good!
