Question about Troy Bilt Tb70ss Gas Trimmer

1 Answer

I have a 4 cycle Troy Bilt and the head won't turn but the ...

Attachment 'square' is ok.( I did notice that it won't turn either.) It's like the cable is not attached to the motor. Did the linkage cable break or is there a clutch in the housing that may have given out?

Sometimes the only problem is that the screws holding the engine unit together has vibrated free and allowed the top shaft "square" to back away from it's proper position.

Bushing is worn out. You will need to replace the shaft. Fairly inexpensive.

The head will not spin on Troy Built weed eatter


sounds like your flex cable has taken a trip south. Pull the shaft off the head and take a look at the flex cable. If flex cable is ok, they your clutch is defective.

Weedeater Head won't Turn?


I had the same problem with a Troy Bilt tb65ss. It sat in my garage for a year until I decided to tear it apart. I pulled of the head, removed the debris shield with a Phillips screwdriver, then removed the upper head assembly from the shaft. The inner flex cable is shaped like a square and had wiggled up the shaft until it was no longer engaging. I pulled it down and reassembled the upper head assembly with it engaged. It was a simple fix and took less than 10 minutes. It looks like a terrible design and a repeat problem. If it happens to me again I'll probably jb weld the flex cable in place. Good luck! You can always call the manufacturer and haggle over warranty and haul your trimmer all over town to an authorized dealer who will put it at the back of their pile because you didn't buy it from them or you can fix it in 10 minutes!

Can not remove troy bilt weedeater head


Once all the bolts are removed, tap all the way around, (with a rubber mallet), where the head meets the bottom portion of the motor. It should come right off with a little coaxing.

Cannot disassemble Troy-bilt trimmer head


There is a round, rotary black part between the metal piece to which the cutting head attaches and the outer plastic seat of the cutting head. There are two square slots, each about a quarter inch wide, on opposites sides of the black piece. Slide an Allen wrench or something similar firmly into the slot. Holding the Allen wrench in a stable position, turn the outer plastic ring of the cutting head (it has scalloped edges that can be gripped firmly) counter clockwise to unscrew the cutting head from the bolt on which it is mounted. Be careful with the tool (e.g. Allen wrench) used to hold the black piece steady, as it is plastic and could be damaged by the edge of the tool.
