I have purchased a petrol 5 in 1 bush cutter ,the engine runs but the tools don't work,shaft doesn't go round help


possible explanations for this are
the square ends of the shaft are worn round and not engaging properly
angle drive head is seized up--stripped gears
angled drive head is not fitted far enough up the shaft to engage drive squares
the centrifugal clutch is not working properly weights jammed , clutch material worn off, oil on surfaces
if the machine is new , take it back for warranty inspection
if it is old pull the shaft housing off and inspect the clutch area
go google and type in ---workshop manual for ( make and model) brushcutter (trimmer ) and see if there is a pdf version download

I have a Stihl Weed eater will a FS 45 carburetor fit on an FS 90


NO. The FS90 is a 4mix engine and the carb has a (sump) on it which has a pulse pipe going to the bottom of the crank. The FS45 is a totally different carb configuration, and doesn't have the sump. FS90 carb is an C1Q-131A

The FS45 has several carbs that fit:-
C1Q-S97
C1Q-S71
C1Q-S66
C1Q-S58
C1Q-S44A
C1Q-S53A

Trimmer head won't rotate


Usually this is a clutch problem, the clutch is under the drum and when it engages turns the drum which turns the drive shaft which turns the trimmer head. If the drum is not turning than it is the clutch, if the clutch is turning the drive shaft could be broke, if the drive shaft is not broke than the problem would be in the gears of the trimmer head.

Stihl fs 55r head won't turn


Check drive shaft. Some models have a flexible cable drive shaft that is prone to breaking. also make sure the drive shaft is engaged in the clutch drum and in the gear head end.

How to change the cutting line in a curved shaft fs45 *******


No, I'm not sure why STIHL even makes curved shaft trimmers at all. I have never worked on ine in 10 years of being a STIHL tech, I just throw them out when they don't work and steer the customer to a straight-shaft. It's their punishment for the mistake of buying the curved shaft in the first place.

Dealer says shaft has broken. Stihl had a problem with some FS45's doing this. They are trying to have it repaired under warranty.

Thanks for the response.
