How to change to a grass blade on your brushcutter
  1. Remove the trimmer head by placing the locking pin in the small head on the back of the gear head. …
  2. Unscrew the trimmer head by turning it clockwise.
  3. Place the grass blade on top of the drive disc.
  4. Place the support cup onto the grass blade.
Tools such as a lawnmower, pruners, loppers and weed whackers are good choices for removing these types of plants. It`s also a good idea to make sure your blades are sharpened as this allows for clean cuts and easier work.
Cutting heads include circular saw blades (chisel tooth or scratcher tooth), brush knives, grass blades, etc. Most brushcutters also allow other heads to be fitted, including bump feed and fixed line heads such as those used on line trimmers or modified saw blades such as a beaver blade which resembles a chainsaw.

I need to replace the whole trimmer head and I dont know how to get the gear case off so I can put the new one on. Can anyone help?
ANSWER : To replace the trimmer head you don’t need to replace the gear case. If you look closely about a 1/4 inch up from the safety guard you’ll see a hole in the side of the “gearcase” assemby. (you may have to clean the old dead grass clippings off to see it) You can shove a rod into the hole that will stop the head from spinning freely and I believe you spin the head clock wise (reverse threads) to remove the head.

How do i install the blades on my weed eater so i dont have to use string anymore
ANSWER : There are many options out there but pretty much all of them require you to completly remove the line trimming head and screw on an aftermarket device. I use the bruch hog, the line trimmer and one with three nylon blades that are replacable (from Menards) and all work well but you do have to replace the blade too so it will not be the end all. If you are going through a lot of line may I suggest you run the trimmer at about 1/4 speed or just enough to do the job, it really saves a lot of line and frustration.

My weed eater hedge trimmer runs for about 10 minutes and cuts off. It seems as though it is flooded, because it won’t start again until some time later. But it continues with the same pattern. I purchased a can of premixed gas/oil to make sure it was my mixture, to no avail. I have not replaced the spark plug yet, but I don’t think that has anything to do with it. Do you have any suggestions?
ANSWER : The plug can be the problem but also the air mix as well get the best plug you can
