The clutch is fouled with assembly grease. Separate the boom from the powerhead, then use a T20 screwdriver insert into the clutch drum. Remove spark plug and insert a small length of rope to hold piston, now remove screw in clutch hub. Slide off clutch hub and clean with soap and water. If excessive grease is on end of boom drive shaft remove the excess but leave a little. the rubber clutch shoe works by stretching with faster engine rpms.

When my flymo lite 250 engine is running the end does not turn to cut the grass


Could be anything from a stripped drive shaft to a loose or stripped trimmer head. You'll probably need to take it to a repair shop to have them diagnose the problem and locate the replacement parts if it's anything other than a stripped trimmer head bolt.

Stihl strimmer engine runs but wont cut grass the head wont turn what cuts grass


First take the head off and look for grass, weeds and string wound up in there. A lot of times that's the problem.

Next, with the head off and the switch in the off position, pull it over a few times and see if the shaft spins. If not, could be a broken shaft or a bad clutch.
