My cheapo Homelite bit the dust last week (6 years at 10 hrs per week, 6 months/yr....ran a LOT longer than I thought and pretty good for $100). I bought an Echo GT-2000 SB split boom trimmer. The operator's manual that came with it doesn't describe how to take the shaft apart. I went to the Echo website to look for the PDF download and they don't have anything. I need some advice as to how to split the boom. My dealer is 30 miles away so I thought maybe you guys might have an idea. I don't want to wreck anything doing it wrong. Thanks.
