Question about Troy Bilt Tb70ss Gas Trimmer

Shaft disengages and trimmer head stops spinning. Seems to be disengaging at coupling were attachments hook up. Shaft slides back and forth and when I turn trimmer off and jiggle trimmer then start it back up it works for a while then stops.

Ryobi trimmer Rlt30CES head slow down under revs


Sounds like a drive shaft/clutch type problem, I do not know the machine but suspect it uses a flexible shaft to the head has this union worn out or at the motor end there would be some kind of clutch which would leave the motor spinning on tick over (not the head) then engage on rev up. Perhaps this is faulty or has oil on it, could be its flexible shaft has got a worn end.

On my old B&D it throws a sprung disc out under centrifugal force to engage with its drive shaft coupler which at low revs the springs "win" to disengage it.

Its head end is easier first to check by removal of its line holder after that things are more complex with mine four screws remove what I call its nose cone to get into the clutch area.

If there is a wear issue run it at a gentle speed dabbing its head into some grass you may find the motor spins on but its head stops which will confirm the above.

Hope this helps..........

Does trimmer head spin at idle


this is a hard question ,ill start with the text book answer , NO the idle should be low enough to disengage the clutch and remove power from head . but in reality this always is not possible , me I judge a clutch and engine idle % to be working correct if I can put cutting head on ground and not have it take off with throttle closed off

Weed eater wt255cls brand new starts but the trimming head is not spinning? seems to be in neutral?


hello,,There are only three things to cause trimmer head not to turn.
1.Outer shaft has sliped down from engine because screw has fallen out and ring has come loose,
2.Shaft has broken due to excess stress,such as putting on a differant trimmer head or binding up,
3.Trimmer head striped.
hope this helps,any comments welcome,thank you.

The trimmer head will not spin under power


The drive shaft is not set all the way into position. You will have to take the front casing off, as well as the lower part of the shaft, and work it into position that way. You may have to play with it a little bit.

It won't rotate


It is slipping because the clutch is worn. The only cure is a new one.
