In search of some feedback/direction? I had a Ryobi power head with several attachments (string trimmer, edger, hedge trimmer), but the power head has gone deep six on me. I am looking at the Stihl KM111R power head. I have seen posts that the attachments will work, but my local Ace Hardware told me they will not, as they will not handle the rpm that this Stihl runs at. Any feedback? Thanks.
Owner/operator of Kevins Small Engine and Tractor Service located in South Berwick Me, 03908. I opened the shop to the public in 2008 in my 24x32 shop and the business exploded well beyond expectations. I hired an employee in 2010 and in 2014 I built a 30x60 addition to the building. I should have built it double the size as I have far outgrown it.
Just had the same issue and what I found is the mulching cover had backed off the safety switch. Remove the cover by taking off the 2 plastic wing nuts and depress it and then try and start it making sure the brake is set and seat switch is made. Quick fix and common on these mowers.
