SOURCE: Replacing trimmer line with blade for stihl fs 90r trimmer

If you bought the trimmer new there should be a rod about 6" long and 1/8" thick. Above the trimmer head below the trimmer gearbox there is a hole. You have to put the rod in that hole and turn the head until that locks it from turning.

From there you can screw the trimmer head off by hand, or a strap wrench if it's really tight. It may be left hand threads.

Stihl HS 80 stops after a while

Check the fuel tank vent, it could be creating a vaccum in the fuel tank which is stopping the carb from drawing up the fuel. Then you're having to wait till the pressure in the fuel tank equalises again.

Could be a fueling issue, check fuel lined and fuel tank vent. Vents can become damaged and create a vaccum in the fuel tank, stopping the carb from drawing up fuel from the tank.

Stihl, FS81 trimmer won't start

Well I would go with fuel supply. But did you pull the hose off the carb inlet and see if fuel flows freely from it? You do have a filter screen inside the fuel tank on most makes and it can get plugged, if it is plugged blow compressed air back into the tank to clean it and then dump and flush the tank..
