    Guys -

    I've got a HT75 Stihl Pole that I've had to repalce both poles due to being damaged (bent).

    I've changed pole and the saw was working great - however now I'm having problems when fully extended - the driveshaft becomes disconnected. Internal spring is not fully extending upper drive shaft.

    I'm looking for a diagram / schematic of the internals of both poles - just want to double check to make sure I have everything in correct order.

    I was thinking of getting one sooner or later, but my extended reach trimmer works fine, how long have you had it?

    Loosen the collar that holds the power head/engine and slide it towards the plastic throttle grip about 3/4 inch

    I purchased a new one with a bigger engine today and the same thing happened. Easily fixed once I figured it out.

    I had to replace the poles on mine a couple weeks ago. I think stihl only sells there replacement parts through there dealers. The dealer has schematics, but I think stihl tries to keep them off the internet. My dealer would not share his schematics with me and threatened to charge me more if I tried to fix it myself and couldn't.
