We took it to the place where we purchased the replacement part and they took the part off.  I didn't see him do it, but apparently, it was missing a pin to hold the shaft so the top could be screwed off.  It took him about 15 minutes, so it wasn't an simple fix.  No charge.  Nice guy. 
Thanks.

Trimmer head won't rotate


Usually this is a clutch problem, the clutch is under the drum and when it engages turns the drum which turns the drive shaft which turns the trimmer head. If the drum is not turning than it is the clutch, if the clutch is turning the drive shaft could be broke, if the drive shaft is not broke than the problem would be in the gears of the trimmer head.

I have (had) the Poulan Pro 25 cc trimmer. The motor and main shaft have been nothing but problems for me. I still have the attachments. Do you know if there is a way just to buy the main shaft/motor? ...


Sure you can...that would be called the crankshaft assembly. You can find it here...along with any other parts you may wish/need. These low-end trimmers are practically considered disposable household items nowadays and a lot of people treat them as such. Look for the crankshaft assembly here:

I am a little surprised at the lower cost.

The motor runs but the trimmer head turns slowly or not at all.


The problem may not be in the clutch assembly, if you took the engine apart you would have noticed a lot of debris if a lining had been stripped off. I would start with the lower flexible shaft assembly. This is probably where you will find something that is noticeably worn.

Here is a link to a Owner Manual / Parts listing. So you can see what the pieces should look like.

If the link doesn't work here's where you can download it for free.

Need to change pull rope on Poulan Pro Weedeater


sounds like you are trying to remove the drum assembly; try a torx driver or a phillips screwdriver. There is a srew that hold that drum on and the bolt is in that black hole.

Motor spins, shaft does not...


I'm in a similar situation with my GH1000, except that it was a part that comes with whole motor assembly. I could sell you the shaft assembly of my trimmer, or I'll buy your motor assembly. Yes?

Removal of the clutch assembly for cord replacement.


Hi some have a screw down the centre and the clutch itself should screw off the opposite way to what the motor runs.

Remove the trimmer head from shaft


The entire trimmer assembly (from the gearbox forward) will slide off of the drive shaft cover. On the side of the aluminum gearbox assembly, you will find a single screw. This is the "anti-rotation screw" (do not lose this). Then remove the small (approximately 1" diameter) clamp from the end of the gear box assembly and simply pull the entire cutting assembly off of the shaft.

If you just want to remove the trimmer bump head assembly, then you will need to lock the bump head assembly to prevent rotation while you are working. If you purchased this new, then there should be a small metal rod included with your accessories. This will fit in a small hole in the base of the gear box assembly 791-182193 and prevents the trimmer head from rotating.

Then proceed to remove the following items:

791-180814B (replaces 791-180814) Bump Head Knob Assembly
791-147495 Inner Reel (hold the trimmer string)
791-610636B (replaces 791-610636) Spring
791-612026 Retainer (be careful removing this so you do not inadvertently destroy it). If you intend to reuse the trimmer head. If not, then hack, pry, stab, etc.. until you mangle it enough to remove.
791-683301 Outer Spool & Eyelet Assembly should now slide out leaving only 791-612483
Spool Shaft which I will assume that you want to keep.


I replaced my entire string head assembly a couple of years ago (and subsequently misplaced it and am in fact wanting to purchase one) and replaced it with a grass-gater or similar.

I hope this helps.

Can not get the head off, the bolt spins.


You should not have to take the head off.You should be able to pull cable out through the top.
