“There are two trimmer blades used on your

each other to cut shrubs and bushes. The blades will become nicked and dull with
use. Sometimes a tooth can break off of a blade. If the trimmer is dropped, the teeth can be
bent. Replacing the cutter blade is a repair that
you can do yourself, and I’m going to show you how. Hi. I’m Mark Sodja. Do-it-yourself repairs like these are easier best commercial hedge trimmer
than you might think. From lawn machines to cordless drills, kitchen
mixers, outdoor drills, our how-to videos walk you through each repair from start to
finish, so doing it yourself means never having to do it alone. Let’s get started. I’ll begin by removing the blade nuts from
the bar. Now remove the protector, turn the clipper
over, and remove the blade screws. Now remove the gearbox cover. With the cover removed, now I’ll go ahead
and remove the grease from the gearbox. Now begin disassembling the gearbox. I’ll remove the filth sill, the first gear,
the first blade. There’s also a washer that fits between the
blades and now the second blade. Now begin installing the new blade or blades. The first blade installs with the bevels pointed
down. As I install the blades, notice on the gear
that there’s an indexing mark, and that indexing mark is pointing towards the drive gear. As I install the second drive gear, I’ll need
to make sure that that index mark is aligned in the same position. I’ll place the blade over the eccentric on
the gear. Again, the bevels on the blade are pointing
down. Now apply a little grease to that lower gear
in the first blade. I’ll install the washer that fits between
the blades and the second blade. This time, the bevel on the blade is pointing
up. Just a small amount of grease around that
blade. Now the second gear. Again, I align that indexing mark towards
the drive gear, just the same as the other. I’ll slide the blade in and out as needed
to get it to align with the eccentric. Like that. Now reinstall the filth sill at the front
of the gearbox, and finish packing the gearbox with grease, and I’ll reinstall the cover. Now reinstall the blade bolts. The long bolt goes into the handle. I’ll use a wrench and tighten the bolt. The remaining bolts are all the short ones. Now reinstall the protector and the nose guard. Now reinstall the nuts. At this point, I’ll leave them just hand tight. Over the protector, I’ll also install a washer. Now I’ll set the proper tension on each of
the bolts. Previously, we tightened them all the way. Now release them a quarter of a turn. I’ll use two wrenches to tighten up the nuts. One wrench to keep the bolt from turning, chargeable hedge trimmer
and the other to tighten the nut. That’s how you can install a new cutter blade
on your hedge clipper. Be sure to check back often for new videos
