View Full Version : HELP:Have Robin NB253A String Trimmer Engine – Need Shaft & Gear Assembly

10-11-2009, 01:34 PM
I have acquired a new Robin NB253A (24.5cc) string trimmer engine and now looking for the shaft and gear assembly to complete the trimmer. Can someone please recommend where I can purchase the shaft and gear assembly for a cheap price. I believe Dolmar and Makita shafts will work with this engine. If I am unable to find a matching shaft & gear assembly, is there any other use for this engine. If possible, I would like to use the engine for a gas powered hedge trimmer. If you want photos, I can post them. Please provide feedback.

You can down-load the owner's/parts manual here; http://www.robinoutdoorpower.com/manuals.htm

Then use the dealer locater, It will most likely not be cost effective to try piecing this unit together. Sell the power-head and put the money towards a real complete unit.
