Question about Homelite Garden

1 Answer

Weedeater and Homelite shafts interchangeable?

I have a Homelite curved shaft weed eater. The cab;e or something is bad. The head does not spin but the motor runs great. There is no tension on the head at all. It spins freely. I have a Weedeater brand weed eater that does not run. They are both curved shaft and are the same length. Can I just remove the shaft as an assembly from the Weedeater and put it on the Homelite? How do I remove the shaft from the motor? Could the clutch or transmission be bad on the Homelite? How do I get to the clutch / transmission? Are these interchangeable with the ones on the Weedeater brand? Is this more of a hassle than it would be worth? I can get a new Murray weed eater at Wal-Mart for about $75.

Just give it a try. Some different brands will interchange. I have done this with a Toro and it is still running.

Trimmer head won't stay on


Use a piece of trimmer like in head. As you slide it on it will likely be tight and hard to come off

I have the homelite mighty Lite 26vt the one that breaks in half for storage well the head isnt spinning and i cant figure out why or how to even look in the shaft what do i do


That is called a quick-change shaft I believe. You need to take it apart at the connection and make sure that the two pieces on the inside of each piece of shaft are inner locking with each other. One piece of drive shaft should slip into the other.

If that doesn't do it, then you may have broke one of the pieces of shaft.

Good Luck!

The spline for my Poulan TE475 WeedEater comes out during start up and wraps around the shaft. I use .080 round spline. It started recently to do this.


The string head on these units is very poorly designed. There is hardly anything in the head to retain the line. I suggest removing the stock string head and going to Home Depot and getting a replacement Universal type head or one for the Ryobi or Homelite They are basically interchangeable. Check the length available on the shaft end (threaded part) after removing the head.Use a large wrench or pliars to hold the dust cap when you unscrew the head. If you feel the driveshaft turning, don't continue turning head or you will break the flex driveshaft.

The head will not spin on Troy Built weed eatter


sounds like your flex cable has taken a trip south. Pull the shaft off the head and take a look at the flex cable. If flex cable is ok, they your clutch is defective.

Weedeater starts fine but the string head will not spin. I removed the string head, and the shaft it connects to is not spinning either.


The shaft cable has either come loose at the head, or is broken at the engine most likely. Is this a 2 piece unit? If so, see if the cable turns with the grass trimmer section removed. If so, it is usually easiest to just replace the trimmer shaft section. One piece units require disassembly at the engine, and if you are not mechanically inclined, that can be a pain.
