How do you remove the line trimmer attachment to attach the brush cutter blade


the nut holding the trimmer head on is a left hand thread so you have to turn it clockwise to undo it
when the head is off you put the next attachment on and do up the nut in the reverse direction

What direction to tighten the nut on the cutting deck of a Swisher 44inch rough cut trail cutter?


If this is just a mounting bolt it will be right-hand threaded meaning that with you looking at the nut/bolt, the nut will turn clockwise to tighten.
Some blade bolts (and some old car lugs nuts are left-hand thread on one side of the car, as is the left pedal on a bicycle) are left-hand threaded and it can get real exciting til you figure out you hand to turn them counterclockwise to tighten

I have a suffolk punch 14sk which starts runs and cuts excellently the only problem is that on starting the cutter blades revolve all the time and will not stop even on slow idle speed. What is the...


NO dont change the belt, chances are its just the cable needs adjusting, slacken the 10mm nut on the adjuster that goes into the casing on the left side of the machine ( think its the top cable that adjusts the cylinder) after the nut is slackened off turn the adjuster clockwise so its going into the casing,you can do this while engine s running. the cylinder should stop turning as you wind in the adjuster. I would also suggest that the cylinder is turning too easily and it will need adjusting by turning the adjuster screws either side of the cylinder. turn the adjuster screws clockwise one click each at a time until the cylinder just touches the bottom blade when you spinn the cylinder by hand( with the engine NOT running!!!!!)

How do you convert the Echo grass trimmer model SRM-22ges to the brush cutting option?


There is a hole just above the grass trimming head that you can slip a screw driver into. Turn the head so that the inner and outer holes align where you can put a screw driver or other hard steel object in. Put it in there and then turn the head counter clock wise until it comes off, it may take a little effort to get it to move, but you should be able to do this with your hands. Once you get the trimmer head off, put the blade on and hopefully you still have the nut and washer accessories to hold the blade in place. You will need to place your screw driver back in the alignment hole to hold the head from spinning while you tighten the blade nut back down. Make sure it is tight, you don't want that blade coming off at ~10,000 rpm!

I have a L123 Husquravana brush cutter and I am looking for the lock nut that holds on the trimmer head. I am looking for the size to the lock bolt.


The trimmer head is not held on by a nut, the whole trimmer head is spun onto a 10mm male output shaft, to remove the trimmer head lock the geabox by inserting a 6mm pin through the top of the gearbox, there is a hole to take it, this will lock the drive disc, you can then turn the whole trimmer head clock wise ( left hand thread ) and remove the trimmer head. Parts are available for the trimmer head, it depends on which head you have, manual feed, or bump feed.

How do i change the blades


Disconnect the planer's power cord, then use the T-wrench that comes with the planer to remove the four screws that secure the top of the planer. Lift the top to remove it from the planer.
Remove the three wing nuts holding the dust cover over the cutter head. Rotate the dust cover up to unlock it from the fan housing, then push the cover to the left to disconnect it. Remove the dust cover from the planer to expose the cutter head.
Rotate the cutter head with a piece of scrap wood until the lock on the side of the cutter head engages. All eight screws in the cutter head clamp should now be visible. Remove the screws using the T-wrench, then turn the T-wrench upside down and use the magnet in the head of the T-wrench to grab the clamp. Remove the clamp to expose the knife underneath. Use the magnet to remove the knife.

Press down on the cutter head lock to free the cutter head. Use some scrap wood to turn the cutter head for access to the remaining two knives. Follow the instructions in Steps 3 and 4 to remove and replace those knives.

I have a makita backpack petrol strimmer fitted with a line head can i fit a brushcutter blade instead i donot have the full model No it is a 41cc engine it is an early model


Hi Doug,

There are adapters for just about every combination of trimmer, brush cutter blade, grass gator, etc. you can think of.

One of the most handy purchases has been a non specific arbor adapter set. Not only does it have 2or 3 each of the most common nuts in both left and right hand thread, it has inserts that keep every blade, flail and brushcutter I've tried dead center.

It even came with a diamond shaped one for a skillsaw blade that I tried with my Ryobi 4 cycle. That thing turns thorny blackberry vines to powder.

So the answer is yes.

Best regards

Changing blades.To loosen the blades nut, which way does it turn?


hi. you dont say what make or model but I offer the following. if it's just a single bolt or nut holding the blade it will rely on a bellville type washer (dished ) or will be pegged either side of the nut or bolt, if the later try to drive the pegs down level with the mounting boss, now get a couple of friends to lift the whole deck so you can secure the nut or bolt in a vice (vise) and using both hands turn the blade itself the opposite way that you would turn the nut, this has never failed for me, if the blades counter rotate, one will be left hand thread the other right hand. bear in mind that a rotary blade spins at around 150-200 mph, every time you hit an obstruction (and you will) the blade will tighten particularly if secured with a belleville type washer. best of luck

Cannot stop the shaft from turning to remove lock nut fs400 to remove brush cutter blade


With unit in normal operating position, the operator can see the small hole on top of the gearbox. Insert a blunt ended metal dowel rod into that hole to lock the gearbox and remove the cutting attachment. NOTE: The locknut is left-hand thread.

HOW TO GET BRUSH CUTTER OFF FS 55


Look at the top of the head (where the brush cutter is) find the small hole about 3/16 diameter. Insert an allen wrench or a large nail, or anything else that will fit in the hole almost the same size as the hole. While putting a little downward pressure on this "tool" turn you blade slowly by hand until you feel the tool slide into the locking slot, this will hold the blade from turning. Keeping it in this position, take a socket and ratchet on the nut that is holding the blade and loosen and remove it. THE NUT HAS LEFT HAND THREADS SO TURN IT OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU NORMALLY WOULD TO REMOVE IT!!!!
