I was given a Homelite ST385 trimmer. Could someone tell me what trimmer head will fit this? It appears to have a 5/16 LH
thread. Are the universal heads worthwhile and would one fit this?
well, if it were mine--i'd take it to the place that sells the heads, and buy one to fit it. I'm quite sure the seller would be only too happy to fix ya up with the correct head (trimmer)!
If you are going to spent ANY money on this trimmer, get a Shindaiwa SpeedFeed head. It is going to cost a little more but it is going to be world of difference. One of the major difference between cheap trimmers and the commercial ones is the head. It does not make any sense to get another cheap head to replace a cheap head.
I have the complete heads for HOMELITES or parts for them Bill Walcott
I have two fairly new 26ss Homelite Mighty Weed Trimmers. Both have less then two (2) hours of running time on them. On one the pull string wont return, it wonÂt start the engine. I tried rewinding the spring and the string at least 8 times and I still canÂt get this thing to work right. I am an automotive machinist of over 40 years I work with the smallest to the largest engines all day. I had several other Top Machinists in the shop take a look at it as well. The string wont return back to its original position after a load is applied to the engine. After the second pull it jams again. The only other option I can think of is to replace the starter pulley. But the trimmer is new right????? I paid $120.00 for the thing new, and spent about $400.00 in time trying to fix it. The other trimmer the muffler fell off after the third (3) usage
Papa: Is there any Trimmer Thread that you have not asked the same question ?
