    Yesterday while working the trimmer head on my redmax bc250 stopped turning. At first I would give it gas and it would hesitate, then finally spin...slowly. Then a few minutes later I would give it full throttle and it would act like it wanted to spin but just wouldn't. I'm going to have some time to tinker with it today. Any ideas??

    I don't know Redmax but "EXPERT" just posted this on another thread..

    I just took my Redmax in for the same reason. Clutch shoes went out. Got it back in 3 days and cost me just under $100. Better than spending $400 on a new one. Now I'm having a similar problem on my newer redmax. The head wants to turn, but just won't. Kinda like it's stuck. When this happened to the first trimmer, you could tell simply by listening that it wasn't going to turn, and there was no hesitation on the trimmer head, it didn't even try to spin.
