    Redmax trimmer shaft broke from being on trimmer trap/trailer and bumpy roads all these years. Dealer didn't have shaft in stock so I used 1" copper pipe for sleeve and jbweld to repair. The copper pipe is a really snug fit. We'll see how it holds up.

  2. Check out our Xtreme Series Trimmer Racks. The benefit of our system is our aluminum blocks that mount onto the trimmer shaft. These lightweight blocks prevent any damage to your trimmer shaft and also prevent your trimmer from rolling around which leads to spilled fuel and flooded engines.

    I assume you put the plastic sheath back in before you JB it together? i assume it is same as Echo....without the sheath it won't last long. Why not get a used shaft from dealer?

    I like your effort. I don't know how long it will last though. Please keep us informed.
