Stiga Brushcutter

Not sure, think it may be the clutch. Took the power head off and turned the (solid square) drive shaft by hand and the spline on the 'business end' rotates freely.

 

Carefully inserted the drive shaft back into the PH and tightened.

 

Rev it and nothing rotates.

 

Yes sounds like clutch, should be easy enough to fix

 

 

I bought the 53cc stiga strimmer a few weeks back, it seems alright. The auto feed head it comes with is no use as it wears through the line at the eyelet. Also the guard and line trimmer knife don't allow you to run a very long line, considering the size of the machine

The only niggling thing I find when doing blade work for new fencing is the av always seems loose and not in touch but vibes are never a problem with this set up :thumbup:

I've done 2 hours with it full throttle this morning as a test on stuff I normally use the Stihl for.

4 lines on it and it was really very good working flat out.

It did not feel any more vibey than the Stihl either.

Anyone got any thoughts on the Makita 43cc 4 stroke

 

Vibes same as my Kaaz Danarm (little lower in fact) and similar money to the Stiga.

 

I may or may not have one of these in my collection soon ��
