Do you have bent blades.? Try removing the 'driveshaft' and adding a coating of grease, the shafts can become dry within a plastic liner and start to vibrate

Is the trim head replaceable

The machine is rated as a brushcutter even though it is supplied with a line trimmer head.

You should find a range of spares and accessories available for the machine to perform a number of functions.

Stihl hl75 pole trimmer. Blades don't move. Cable turns when cutting end is off machine, but will not drive blades when it is attached. Anyone have an idea as to what's going on?

More than likely a gearbox problem in the cutter head. They can break teeth on the gears and also have delicate needle bearings than can wear if they are ungreased. Maintenance is paramount on these moving parts.

Hi, My Stihl TS400 with 14"

Racing on a 2 cycle engine is usually a sign of a lean condition. It could be caused by a few different things including a bad crank seal or a torn intake manifold as some are made out of rubber. I would remove the cutter arm then pull the muffler to inspect the cylinder and piston. If they are scored it will be a costly repair.

Vibrations when the cutting head is lowered . Sounds like one of the blades is hitting the cover. Especially noticeable below a setting of 5. Three cutting blades. There is no noticeable loss of cutting...

Sounds like a bent blade to me. Can you determine where or which side the noise is coming from? For safety, I would replace all the blades. I once ran over my son's baseball while mowing and bent the housing and that caused the blade to hit the side of the deck. I simply bent the housing back with a few hits of a hammer and back to mowing I went.

Needs servicing and has a lot of components that have rust on them the cutting blade will need replacing too

You could try wiping all the metal components over with a clean soft cloth dipped into a little bit of good quality sewing machine oil to remove the surface dirt firstly.

Then brush out the interior that you can get to with a soft clean little brush sweeping the dirt/dust into your hand or onto a piece of flannel fabric to catch it all and get it away from the works of the machine.

Cutting blade, you will need to source from a supplier for your machine (you don't mention make or model in your info request), if it is a domestic serger, then changing the bottom blade is usually fairly easy but you may find that just taking it off and giving it a rub with a cloth will help. It may still cut okay, just depends on the sharpness of the blade.

Oil all the metal moving parts in the front cover of the machine, ie where the loopers slide/move/pivot as these points need lubrication. Your machine may have a threading and oiling diagram inside the front cover, some do. Failing that, you could try to locate a manual for it on .

How tight should the blade bolt be on a cut off saw

You've answered this yourself. The blade only needs to be nipped up enough to grip. If it slips, it will tighten. Thats why, some machines have a left hand thread, as they always rotate so as to tighten in the event of slippage.
If the blade slips under normal service, suggest you clean both blade and the flanges, and just do it up a little tighter next time.
