Ryobi TP30 straight shaft line trimmer convertible - drive shaft disconnected from motor

The drive shaft (internal shaft inside the housing) was not turning when I put on a brushcutter attachment. I put it on my bench and was able to pull the shaft out of the casing. Can I fix this? Or do I need to get a new trimmer?

Check both ends of shaft, they're usually a hex or torx head. sometimes the can strip or even snap off. if you find noticable damage replace the shaft

What is oil to gas ratio for a Ryobi TP30 pull start trimmer?


The Ryobi TP30 also has the model number RY52014. This 2-cycle engine uses a 50:1 gas to oil ratio. That means that for every gallon of gasoline, you need 2.6 oz. of 2-cycle engine oil. This information is available on page 9 of the manual. Manuals Lib has the manual for the TP30 trimmer here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/143217/Ryobi-Ry52014.html .

I hope this helps.

Is it possible to fit a brush cutter head to a ryobi rbc30cet line trimmer


Is it a straight shaft? If so measure the inside of the blade and fit the arbor to your trimer.

I strip the cable inside my lawn trimmer it would turn my cutter below. Is this something I can repair or must I take it to shop?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. When you say you stripped the cable I am assuming that your talking about the flexible drive shaft. This can be replaced at home. However,.... ou did not state if this was a gas or electric model. At the moment I am assuming it is a 25cc Gas trimmer. To replace the flexible drive shaft the motor will have to be unmounted from the drive shaft housing. It will have 4 flat sides on each end that must mate correctly into the slots of the motor and the power head or you will not be able to re-mount the engine.

With a good model number I can provide you with a source of the replacment parts and probably what mounting hardware that has to be removed to change the fl;exible drive shaft.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a Ryobi RLT 30CESA with the strimmer attachment. What do I need to fit a Brushcutter blade to it


I would not put a brushcutter blade on this unit. The curved shaft quik disconnect may not hold up to the shock torque created by the brushblade. It may damage the drive shaft since it is a curved shaft quik disconnect model. You may have to purchase a straight shaft trimmer to get that job done.

The motor want turn the attachments i.e. string on the trimmer or blade on the edger


there is definitely a problem in the drive shaft. check to make sure there's nothing blocking the mal and female ends. if there is, clean it out and lubricate it so that the male will attach to the female slot. also check to see that both ends are not stripped. if the motor portion of it is stripped, which most liekly is out culprit, then it needs to be replaced, or you need to get a new trimmer. if you do, i recommend the Ryobi model CS26 gas trimmer.if the atachment shaft is stripped, the the attachment needs replacement. if you replace the motor portion you need not lubricate the attatchment slot. if the attachment is stripped, it needs to be replaced, but im quite sure the female end in the motor shaft is our problem. it could also be broken inside the shaft. make sure nothing falls out if you hold the attatching ends to the ground.

My Ryobi 132r don't work


THE MOTOR HAS PUSHED BACK INTO THE INTERNAL HOUSING. YOU CAN DISASSEMBLE THE HOUSING AND FORCE THE ELECTRIC MOTOR TO IT ORIGINAL SET UP BUT OVER TIME THE MOTOR WILL KEEP MOVING BACK. THE COOLING FAN WILL BEGIN TO GRIND ON THE HOUSING. THE PLASTIC, HOLDING THE MOTOR IN PLACE,WILL BREAK DOWN AND PUSH AWAY FROM THE ATTACHMENTS.
