When in use, you clippers produce a lot of friction. The heat this produces can damage them if oil is not used to keep them well lubricated. You will likely hear them rattle and the blades won`t cut as smoothly as they should – eventually, they might even seize up completely.
Worn clutch – Since the string trimmer clutch engages with one or more drive shafts attached to the trimmer head to rotate the head when the throttle trigger is depressed, a worn-out clutch may prevent the trimmer head from spinning. A new clutch assembly is relatively inexpensive and easy to install.
Hedge trimmer blades require ongoing lubrication to keep the friction between the blades low to prevent excess heat. Unlike chainsaws, edge trimmers do not have an oil reservoir, therefore the oil is applied directly to the trimmer blades.
Oil in the motor compartment will eventually damage the motor. Blades should be oiled after cleaning with Hygienic spray. Clipper should be oiled with each use. Trimmers should be oiled once a day or after several usages.

When in operation the Ryobi S430 string trimmer leaks oil continuously. How can I fix this problem?
Ryobi told me the unit can’t have the s430 trimmer bottom end raised higher than the engine at any time, or it will leak. Apparently they released a product to compete with other companies for cheap 4 cycle trimmers without much care for the end user.

Trimmer head won’t turn
If you didn’t recently take it apart, then it sounds like you have broken the drive shaft in the neck of the trimmer. You can probably find this at an outdoor power and equipment type of store.Jim
Fuel line positions ?
The longest fuel line, which has the filter attached to it, goes to the brass fitting furthest from the primer bulb. The short fuel line goes directly under the primer bulb. Which hole to put it in doesn’t matter if the lines are the same size. Just choose the shortest path for each. However, if the lines are different sizes, then the longest line (smallest in diameter), goes in the smallest hole of the tank.Jim
Should I bring the battery of my Ryobi 18v grass trimmer inside for the winter?

How do I loosen the blade nut on my Ryobi 4 cycle edger? Which way does it turn??
Try heating the nut slightly with a gas torch and continue to turn counter clockwise as the manual suggests to undo.
The heat will expand the nut slightly making it easier to undo, don’t overheat the nut as this could damage it.
check their isn’t any locking washers holding the nut in place, bend the washer out of the locking position if this is the case.
Try using a larger spanner or extend your handle to give you maximum leverag
