Sonya Centeno: I work for Sears Lawn and Garden Technical phone help and I just wanted to say thank you for facilitating my ongoing learning process that is not afforded me at work. We get a few weeks training and a few weeks on the phone training on then we are expected to trouble shoot and tell people how to repair their L&G equipment like a pro. Thanks to videos like these Sears customers have at least one fairly learned advocate for them when all goes wrong. Keep up the good work!
John Fritz: Thanks Mark for the video explaining how to replace the drive shaft on a string trimmer. It answered several questions I had about this repair.
Vonnie Vanderau: appreciated the helpfulness of your video. I have a question . Can I replace a curved shaft on an Echo GT-225 with a straight shaft without causing myself any problems?
EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
