Question about Garden
I have a Troy Bilt, Model TBPS, Pole Chainsaw. It is an attachment to my Troy Bilt Pole Gas String Trimmer. The 8 inch chain bar is worn out, and Troy Bilt does not have the replacement part and could only give the names and phone numbers of part dealers to see if they might have one. No Luck. I have also searched the internet with no luck so far. The Bar has an Oregon Part Number: 080NATA318. I contacted Oregon today and they say it was an O.E.M. part that if they had it, they are not allowed to sell it retail due to contracts with Troy Bilt. Oregon's Technical Services is doing some checking to see what can be done, It might be that I will have to buy a whole new pole saw attachment and pitch the old one. I purchased the saw from Lowe's less than one year ago. Do you have any suggestions before I toss the $100.00 attachment into the trash. I can't use it with the worn out bar. The rest of the saw is fine and in good shape.

Is the pull rope in the front or rear of engine.Thinking that the string is in the front,you must throttle housing and shaft from engine. remove starter housing. There sould be a screw holding the string and spring in place.

there are two ways to install the string..the cool way is without pulling the inner reel off the trimmer..just leave it in place..cut (2) approx.two arms length (thats spreading your arms out like airplane wings) of .095 string..now, align the arrow of the inner reel (it turns counter clock-wise..the arrow points outward) with the arrow on the outer spool (pointing inward)..holding the spool and reel together so the inner reel doesnt move, push one of the cut strings through the eyehole in the side of the outer spool, and it should come up to the right, through a slot next to a small round hole the diameter of the string..if it doesnt, it just missed the exit (as i call it)..pull out and try again..let about an inch come thru..now take that end of the string and push the line into the little round hole until it stops, which should be about a little more than 1/8 of an inch..hold it in while pulling the excess line outside the spool to keep it in place..now do the same with the other string for the other side..once you have both lines in place, turn the inner reel counter clock-wise to draw in both lines through the eyeholes of the outer spool..you may or may not get all of the line to wind in..not a problem..you will still have enough to do what you need to do..just cut off the rest..one problem you may or may not have that i do most of the tyme is that it gets hard to turn the inner reel..one solution is to bump the top of the 'bump knob' with your fist, then pull both strings at the same tyme, then continue to turn..this method is quicker and easier than the second way of having the inner reel out and trying to wind both lines at the same tyme and trying to place the reel back in the spool..hope this works for you...

Hello. Let me assist you. Since your trimmer runs but stalls at ful throttle it is telling you that there is a fuel problem. Not enough gas is getting through the carbeurator to satisfy the engines needs on full throttle. Most likely the carbeurator is gummed up. A common problem. Let's see if we can un gum it by getting a can or carbeurtor cleaner. Go to any auto parts store and talk to the clerk about your need.

Take an awl or small diameter screw driver, same size or a bit smaller dia. than the line dia., and push it through the hole from the outside of the line head. This should push the piece of old line through the hole.
Recommendation: Leave at least one inch of line on the inside of the head, so you can grab it easily when you have to replace the line. I'll carry a pair of long nose pliers on me when I use my trimmer, so I can easily grab hold of the inside piece to pull it through.
