Hi Reynoldsb1--
If only the nuts and washers came loose, and if everything is still relatively intact, you can fix it yourself in two ways, listed here in order of my preference.
1)Go to your local hardware store, home center, automotive shop, or lawn and garden supplier, and find what is called a "stop nut" that has threads that match your machine. These stop nuts contain a plastic washer internally that, when tightened, bind against a fastener and resist shaking loose when vibrated: perfect for gas-driven power equipment.
2)Get a small bottle of a thread locking paste, available at most hardware stores, home centers, automotive stores, or lawn and garden repair shops. The stuff usually goes by many trade names, like Lock-Tite or Threadlocker, and it all comes in different grades. Since your using a hand held machine, I'd guess you'll get away with using the lowest grade--that is, the weakest strength--of locking paste. If you buy too strong a formula, you may never get the threads apart to fix anything internally. Apply a small amount of the paste to your problem hardware, and tighten everything up as usual. When you're at the store, ask for the product by name, like 'Do you have any Lock-Tite," and they should know what youre talking about.
Hope this helps.

I got alot of vibration when i engage the blades on my 44 inc swisher rough cutter


I had the same problem twice. The first time happened when the blades were not swinging freely because they got gummed up with grass. So make sure your blades pivot easily.

The second time happened when the nuts came loose from the blade driver (the part underneath the deck that the large bolt goes through to hold on the blade assembly). I had taken the Swisher to a small engine repair place for servicing. They removed the blade assembly to sharpen the blades while it was there but put the old lock nuts back on without using any Locktight, so the nuts started to come off while I was cutting. Unfortunately, I did not notice this until after the blade driver got very loose and then got reamed out by the wobbling of the large blade assembly bolt. I had to replace the blade driver and its bolts and nuts.

Can i replace my cord for my hedge cutters


YES

You need the same quality cable and you need to dismantle the cutter to get to the mains connection.

If you are not up to all this then get a garden repair place to do it for you - SAFETY FIRST

My hedge cutter smokes


Hi,
Your hedge cutter is toast....motors run on smoke and when the smoke comes out they no longer run....:-)
Given that a hedge cutter is not all that much money to replace... trying to repair it will not be worth it...
Your best bet is to just get a new one...

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. ...


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.

Making a funny noise and not shaving well


8585 shaver gave higher tone and stopped cutting especially after a few days growth, even with new cutter and foil. Cutter wasn't pressing against the foil properly due to a bit of wear on the spring clip holding the cutter pin. Fixed with about 1cm of cigarette paper moistened and rolled into a 1-2mm ball. Stuffed that into cutter pin hole and rammed home with the cutter pin. Take the foil off and wiggle the cutter - if its feels loose, this might help, though the battery might just be getting old.
