I use a dremel with a sharpening stone, if u don't have one you can also use a power drill with a small sanding disk (1 inch) and course sand paper (30 or 40 grit). or you can use a bastard file. its too tight to use any kind of angle guide so just take your time and do it by eye. it shouldn't take much to get them sharp enough to do the job, over-sharpening is unnecessary and dangerous, and will make the blades dull faster. sharpen all the free blades, top and bottom, then start the trimmers to advance the blades to free up the sides you couldn't get. i use a light penetrating oil to clean the blades first, then lithium grease spray to lubricate.

SOURCE: what is the gas & oil mixture for ryobi 26cc 22in hedge trimmer

If it is a 2 stroke engine, a 50:1 ratio should work. That's 50 parts gas to 1 part oil.

SOURCE: oil ratio

you can use a 40:1 mix if it smokes then cut it back to 32:1 but a little more oil is better than not enough so start with the 40:1

SOURCE: Ryobi 18V Hedge Trimmer Blade Question

Just buy a file and push 3 or 4 down strokes down the same slope of the cutter toward the sharp edge. Never file on the flat top of the cutter, only on the slope. Support the frame using a saw horse or pick-up bed. The support makes the file cut the metal better. You can do the same thing with chain saws. You just need the file that fits the cutter. You just hold a consistant angle and count out the same number of strokes. Also, clean out junk between the moving parts, tighten any loose screws, and drop a few drops of 3 in 1 oil between the moving parts. Having things sharpened at a shop is inconvenient and expensive.

My HS 45 seems to drip oil while cutting, I think it is damaging plants. Is it because there is too much oil in the fuel mix?


Fuel mixture for that model is 50 to 1. Stihl also sell their own premixed fuel and oil which is Ethanol free and non aromatic.

I wondered if it has a blade oiler, but it doesn't. I does however have a gearbox with oil in it. I wonder if it is leaking. Do you know where the excess oil is coming from?

You model is listed here and the Manual and details of the fuel are on his page.

When in operation the Ryobi S430 string trimmer leaks oil continuously. How can I fix this problem?


Ryobi told me the unit can't have the s430 trimmer bottom end raised higher than the engine at any time, or it will leak. Apparently they released a product to compete with other companies for cheap 4 cycle trimmers without much care for the end user.

Sharpen hedge trimmer blade??


My trick is to make sure that I always lube the blades after each session with a 3/4 engine oil + 1/4 kerosene mix - making sure that every tooth gets a drops or 2, then run it for a seconds to spread the oil & leave the blades overlapping. Doing this allows the blades to self sharpen I've found. 2 stroke oil , unmixed is about the perfect viscosity aswell.
