There is definitely a problem in the drive shaft. check to make sure there's nothing blocking the mal and female ends. if there is, clean it out and lubricate it so that the male will attach to the female slot. also check to see that both ends are not stripped. if the motor portion of it is stripped, which most liekly is out culprit, then it needs to be replaced, or you need to get a new trimmer. if you do, i recommend the Ryobi model CS26 gas trimmer.if the atachment shaft is stripped, the the attachment needs replacement. if you replace the motor portion you need not lubricate the attatchment slot. if the attachment is stripped, it needs to be replaced, but im quite sure the female end in the motor shaft is our problem. it could also be broken inside the shaft. make sure nothing falls out if you hold the attatching ends to the ground.

I purchased an 8 inch heavy-duty brushcutter blade for my Ryobi 30 cc four cycle powerhead how do I attach it to the string trimmer head


You can't use the blade on most string trimmers unless you have a brush cutter style then you would unscrew the trimmer string head and attach the blade with the adapter that came with the unit.

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.
