Question about Ryobi Garden

Open Question

I have a Ryobi 3043YE split boom line trimmer. I recently put a hedge trimmer attachment, which worked fine. When I put the line trimmer head back on the spool doesn't spin when revved.

Works when I put the hedge trimmer back on

Sound like the clutch is going out or already is bad. There should be a cone shape cover that attaches the engine to the handle. Usually with 4 screws. Take those screws out and seperate the housing. There is a small centrifugal clutch, which is probably bad.

To install string in the Ryobi you do not have to disassemble anything: Line up the two arrows on the inner and outer reel, remove any excess string, cut two pieces of string about 10 feet, feed line in the side holes, secure line in hole where it comes out the bottom (it only takes about 1/4in. to do so), pull strings tight, then turn the inner reel counter clockwise to wind it. If it sticks a little just pull line a little.
To remove the inner spool in order to remove line that has broken inside, to clean the mechanism, or to perform other maintenance, grasp the outer reel and unscrew the bump knob counter-clockwise. Mine is often very tight and requires pliers to get enough leverage. While you are in there, clean the inner reel and the inside of the outer reel to improve feed performance. The shaft rarely needs cleaning. Do not lubricate. After re-installing the reel, add string (0.080") as described above.

SOURCE: how do I wind trimmer line on double spoools for ryobi

Okay, so the good news is that YOU are probably not stupid. If you have a Ryobi trimmer like I do, it might have taken you a while to figure out the "secret" on how to rewind the line. If you only had to learn the lesson once, you are smarter than I am. (I'm leaving myself a note for next time).

If you wind the line the wrong way, you go through line really fast until it clogs up inside the bump head and you are forced to try again. The trimmer has an arrow on the spool for the direction to re-wind the line. Think of it this way, TURN THE SPOOL IN THE DIRECTION OF THE ARROW! Don't do what I did and rewind the line in the direction of the arrow, that would be wrong.

Whether this is a "mistake", a way to sell more trimmers/parts/line, or simply bad tranlation from Japanese to Engrish, it really doesn't matter. You don't need to buy anything with the exception of new line.

Good Ruck,

Mark

Sounds like the cable in the upper shaft is broken. Start it without the attachments installed and see if the cable is turning.

I have a partner colibri strimmer. How do I lock the driveshaft to change the line spool head ?


You should have a small hole in the side of the head that a small rod goes in to lock it. Just line the holes up and stick the rod or a nail in there and it should be locked.

Oil leak at the back


do you have an automatic oiler, or do you need to premix your fuel? if it is an automatic oiler, and I assume it is since that is the only oil involved in any trimmer I have ever owned, then I would say you have lost your supply line for the two stroke mix, this can be easly solved in a couple of ways, empty out the reservoir, and start to premix your fuel 40:1 would be fine, or you can fined the oil line and reatach it,

How do fit a hedge trimmer attachment to a rbc 40 sb brushcutter ? thanks


This unit was not made to have interchangeable heads. Ryobi makes a hedge trimmer attachment for some of its units that are quick connect.
Otherwise, you may buy this attachment and see if you can interchange the head from the brushcutter to the hedge trimmer. You may find it more work than you want to tackle.

Starter cord tangled on shaft 3043ye


to remove the clutch remove the four screws that connet the trimmer shaft to the engine, remove the shaft. Then insert the correct torex head driver into the center of the clutch cover. There is a screw (the same head as the screws that holds the trimmer shaft on) Remove the clutch cover, insert a screwdriver into the engine cooling fins to hold the engine from rotating and turn the clutch from the engine. The clutch had a remove arrow to help with the direction to turn in order to remove.
