Question about Craftsman 22 in Hedge Trimmer

1 Answer

I have a 22inch Craftsman Hedge Trimmer, Model No. 315.81591. When trimming a hedge near a chain-link fence, one of the steel links from the fence got caught between the blade guard and the cutter blade. Now the cutter blade won't move, but the trimmer buzzes. Is the trimmer repairable? If it is repairable, how do I repair it?

The likely issue is the gear pin has been sheared. The part is no longer available from Craftsman. (P/N from sears: 616255-001)

I had a similar issue with a similar electric trimmer. I removed the old pin and used a split pin and ground it down to the proper size. It's now worked for about 2 years just fine. This requires complete dis-assembly.

I got my hedge trimmer stuck in a chain link fence. It stopped reciprocating but it was still running. I took off the base and found that in insides had broken. Is there a part I can replace?


The best thing to do is replace the whole thing. Parts might be hard to find and you may replace one part only to find more damage on something else.

Describe your Black & Decker Hedge Hog


You may have a piece of metal between the moving blade and the stationary one. Also the motor may have been at the top of the stroke when it stopped. You may be able to "force" the blade to move a little. This may free it enough to work.
