SOURCE: I have a Lawn Hornet

Hi, I have the same machine as you and I also needed to replace the head. I purchased the reel easy head and found out that it does not fit the lawn hornet because the head has a tapered end and it does not provide enough clearance against the bushing housing. I did eventually get it to fit but I had to spend a while machining the housing on a lathe. It's a great head and worth the effort but it is very difficult to fit. Cheers

The pull cord on my Roybi rtl30ces will not retract. How do I access to repair?


Hi Kathy - more likely than not there's a little "tab" on the end of the spring that slips it to a tab in the plastic to maintain spring tension.

These break off fairly regularly and you can easily bend the spring steel to a 90 degree to "fix it" and place it back in the tab.

I've included a teardown / rebuild video that should be very helpful when repairing your weedeater - it's a "generic" ryobi video but they're all really, really similar.

I have just bought an RBC30SET. I am trying to


To remove the strimmer and procut fitment first you need to lock the shaft by placing item 35 into the slot in the flange next to the fitment and through into the hole in the outer housing of the drive shaft, item 3. Then using the box spanner turn the fitment CLOCKWISE. Once this has started to move it can be turned by hand until it released. Place the brush cutter onto the shaft followed by the dished washer, cupped face towards the cutter and fix in place with the nut, turning it anticlockwise to tighted. DO NOT overtighted as the direction the cutter turns will tighten the nut further.

How to remove old string reel from ryobi 105r


After you line up the two triangles, push in and lift. Only the top piece will come off, then the spool is inside. I kept trying to lift the whole head and then the top popped off and I realized what I was doing wrong. It is actually quite easy once you figure out the correct way and where to pull.
