TB525es attachments no longer working
NOT THE CLUTCH.. Mine started doing the same thing recently...what I found is the metal piece at the end of the main shaft that accepts the drive from the accessory was stripped out....the part from MTD/Troybilt is $60... Save the $60 its an easy fix....
Remove the sleeve at the end of main shaft.... clean thoroughly with brake cleaner...
Mix a small amount of JB Weld and fill along the walls of the "rounded out" area..Let set for about 2 hours so it gets firm but soft...
Take an attachment, and slide it up into the receiver..making sure to align them square with the receiver. this will form the JB Weld putty to the drive piece. remove the attachment immediately!!!.
Then let it set over night.... DONE works like a champ again next day.....

My Troybilt TB425CS will start and run at low speeds but dies
no no no no no no no!!!
dont grind on a plug!! :D
Please get a new plug. Although there is spark - it is not enough to ignite the gas in the cylinder under load.
It is fine at idling because minimal gas is going into the cylinder.
Once under load (trigger pull) the gas/air mixture changes - and full spark is required.
Your engine is flooding because the plug is not igniting the gas.
Not only have you ground down the plug - but have also changed the spark gap.
PLEASE get a new plug, and be sure it is gapped correctly.
You did good cleaning the carb - but your problem lies in a $5.00 sparkplug.
Thanks for using FixYa !!

My troy bilt trimmer tb20sc rope is hard to pull.
Jard you need to check that the bottom head is clean and there are no obstructions. Then check that the coil is in tight and the nuts are not loose. Finally have you been using the correct fuel mix? Clean the fly wheel with some lubricant spray and sand paper and re assemble.
