You broke the key, it is designed to fail like that so the crankshaft does not curl.

take the blade off and you will see a notch in the crankshaft and a notch in the blade mount. you need to get a new key and replace the one which is split.

I have a 15-20 ft. pine tree. We recently trimmed alot off the bottom of it and now the healthy branches on the tree are turning brown. Is my tree dying?


Pine trees seal themselves with sap fairly quick so you don't have to worry. If the needles are turning yellow and dropping it could be experiencing some shock or it may just be dropping needles for the fall.
If the needles are actually turning brown, check the trunk and branches for signs of boring insect damage such as hole with sap coming out.

Have 18hp briggs on snapper zero turn lawn mover was mowing lawn heard bang like I hit a branch and motor slowed down and kept running but ran a little rough no grinding or nokeing engine still runs


This sounds like a burned or stuck valve. Try a little marvels mystery oil in the dead cylinder to see if it can free up the valve (if it is stuck).

I need a manual for a Ryobi RHT500R Electric Hedge Trimmer 500 Watt - 55cm


I found the manual for the Ryobi hedge trimmer here: fr.ryobitools.eu/local/uploaded/catalog/e_RHT500R-600RL_UM_UK_v1.pdf . The bolts you describe hold the blade to the hedge trimmer's motor. They shouldn't have come loose. However you can check if any of the bolts are loose or have backed out of the motor.

I would suspect either a part of the branch is stuck between the blades. I have one of the small edge trimmer which gets noisy when I get a woody weed stuck in the unit. Unplug the trimmer and look at the blade for some bark stuck between the layers. On each side there are multiple blades that overlap at parts of the cutting cycle.

A parts diagram for the RHT500R is available here: http://www.magic-parts.co.uk/acatalog/Ryobi_RHT500R.php .

II hope this helps.

I am unable to raise or lower the cutting surface of my DW734 thickness planer. The turn handle is very hard to turn. Is there some kind of a locking mechanism ? If I had a manual I might be able to figure...


Follow this link: http://servicenet.dewalt.com/Products/Detail?productNumber=DW734

This will allow you to download the manual and exploded art for base, cutterhead and motor. You may also want to check the position of the turret stop. First of all, make sure the cutterhead lockdown lever is disengaged. Here is from the manual:

Your planer is equipped with a turret stop (M), shown in

Figure 11, for repetitive planing of pre-set depths. Stops are

set at 0", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4". Use the 0" setting when planing

between 1/8" and 1/4".

TO SET A PLANING DEPTH

1. Be sure the carriage is set above 1-1/4" before trying to

set the turret stop.

2. Turn the turret stop until the desired measurement

shows (Fig. 11).

3. Unlock the head lock lever (Fig. 8). Turn the depth

adjustment crank, lowering the carriage by the desired

increments, until it contacts the turret stop.

NOTE: DO NOT USE FORCE TO CRANK THE CARRIAGE

BELOW THE LEVEL THAT THE TURRET STOP INDICATES.

PERMANENT DAMAGE TO THE HEIGHT

ADJUSTMENT SYSTEM ON YOUR PLANER WILL

RESULT.

NOTE: The 3/4" turret stop can be adjusted for other planing

thicknesses. Adjusting the 3/4" turret stop does not affect the

other turret stop settings.

TO ADJUST THE 3/4" STOP FOR OTHER

THICKNESSES

1. Unlock the head lock lever (Fig. 8) and turn the adjustment

handle counterclockwise to raise the cutter head.

2. From the back of the tool, locate the turret adjustment

bolt (N) shown in Figure 11. This bolt is set for a 3/4"

depth of cut at the factory. Use the crescent wrench provided

to loosen the jam nut. Adjust the bolt up or down to
reach the desired planing depth.

3. Turn the depth adjustment crank, lowering the carriage by
the desired increments, until it contacts the turret stop.

Hope this helps.

Make sure there is not a spring loaded locking lift latch engauged. If there is you will see a little movement and then the motor will sound slower. If there is no movement and the motor runs the same speed with no change you are low on hydraulic tilt and trim fluid.

mcdevito75 here, On the fan you hear, carefully turn the blades by hand just a little and see if they start up on there own. These motors are sealed units and maybe the oil is a little thick from non-use. If the baldes don:t start up, Then I would replace the fans.

Car dies while driving


First off, check your battery terminals and posts for corrosion or any other cause of a poor connection.  If your connection to the battery is cutting out/back on rapidly it would cause exactly those symptoms.  also inspect the battery cables end to end for poor connections corrosion or breaks/tears in the insulating coating.  if that yields no answers it is probably a sensor for the ecu or the fuel delivery system.  good luck!
