It sounds like the shaft inside the outer housing shaft is bad. Goto the linkl below and you can get the diagrams and order your parts there directly.

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..........

Ryobi weed eater upper and lower shaft spins, but head doesn't spin, why?


If not a clutched model, likely the flexible drive shaft is broken. Check 1st to insure the engine head is firmly positioned into the aluminum shaft case. If it is remove at the engine, disconnect the cable as necessary and pull out the shaft for close inspection.

Ryobi cs26


Mike it sounds like the head has sheared where it goes onto the shaft. You may be able to get the head off and see if there is any way of re attaching the shaft but it may be tricky. You could use the modelling clay that is also a resin that sets rock hard. (milliput) works for me.

Is the Ryobi model CS26 considered a professional weed trimmer?


The Ryobi curved shaft trimmer is a consumer grade trimmer. Both the 26cc & the 30cc engines from Ryobi (Homelite) are pretty light duty. They have 1 piston ring and use an anodized aluminum piston and cylinder. A commercial grade engine would have 2 or 3 piston rings and the cylinder and piston would be chrome plated for longer life. Look for the emissions label on your trimmer. The emissions code of C would indicate a 50 hour emissions longevity (consumer grade). A code of B would indicate 125 hour emissions longevity (estate grade). A code of A would indicate 300 hour emissions longevity (commercial grade).
I hope this helps.

The trimmer head stopped turning What could be wrong


here is web site for parts

http://www.partstree.com/parts/?lc=husqvarna&mn=225+L+%281994-06%29

almost sounds like the driving drum engagement end has rounded off or the end of drive shaft broke off at either end , or the gear head end is broken / damaged

have a look at the splines on the output shaft on the gear head , check the plate that engages those splines too

physicaly take off the tube / shaft assy from power head and check drum and clutch rotating , check drive shaft end (s)

if ok refit tube / shaft assy ( make sure engaged properly)
tighten mount bolts - remove gear head from end of shaft, start motor and run see if shaft turns ok with some rev s if so
problem is in the gear head

check out website good site


cheers paul hope it helps

Drive shaft not engaging


Hi there Reyles,

On this model, if yo rev the engine and the head just sits there, it can be one of two things.
  1. Clutch not engaging (unlikely)
  2. Broken flex shaft (likely)
You need to partially disassemble the unit to find out. I believe you will need a T25 or T27 torx head. Remove the screws from the clutch housing that connects the engine to the shaft.

Pull it apart. Spin the shaft manually. If nothing its the shaft. Otherwise its the clutch.

Best regards
Mike

Ryobi trimmer not spinning, the motor runs fine, I think the friction clutch is worn.


Either the cintrifugal clutch is not engaging(if that model has one). Or the drive cable is snaped, or the rotary head drive lug is stripped. Pull off the drive head(where the nylon cord goes) & behind it is a flexable cable that transmits drive from the motor to the drive head(bobbin).pull it out and see if its broken.Check The rotary drive head lug,its on the top of the drive head (bobbin) you removed.
hope this helps
