Done it already , experimental two 8mm holes in the side and cleaned it out with brake cleaner , can see a chewed bevel gear , first hole was a tad too high second perfect . Can spray through the square shaft drive hole and it blows the crap out the side hole , only prob now is the swarf removal from the inside of the 8mm hole , more experimenting soon

Thanks for the replies , so looks like another piece of crap then, UN-servicable, wow.
And they are not cheap.
Its a pity some engineering company has,nt stepped up to the plate and designed replacement heads with full servicability for these machines and others .
I had thought of drilling a hole in the head and tapping a thread into it but where the bearings are is touch and go and the swarf going inside as well, however a thorough clean out with degreaser should clean it out , then ther,es the wall thickness for the thread , i guess there's not much there!
I have the old head and its shot so it might be worth a try on that.
Its not a cheap part and all thats gone are the gears , very annoying.
Oh well.
Thanks again

Try Zamberlan boots .  I,ve only had two pairs in 35 years , hiking leather boots , rugged 1/2" thick soles
and made in Italy. Incredibly tough.

Can anyone tell me please how to lubricate the gearhead of a Stihl FS56 brush cutter because there is no grease port on the housing . And has anyone had one of these apart , i have tried but only get so far , do i need special tools .
There is nothing i can find on these heads for this model.   Surly it cannot be a sealed unit or its a pretty stupid design as after so many hours nit needs servicing i would have thought .
Many thanks

Thank you for the hints and tips . We are in Spain and the Coloradio beetle hit hard a couple years ago and wasted time and effort in the patch .  We do not use any spray  just water and let it grow , so i had this idea about sweet potato . It sounds a pretty good crop to grow.
I have never tasted one and am curious about the flavour .  Not much problem with animals here as the growing area is protected,  the only underground problem is the mole, but this year it seems to have dug its way about 100yds further away from the patch.

Hi
I am thinking of growing sweet potatoes as an experiment .  Looking at the beneficial side of the nutrients in them , boiling vs steaming or in the oven .
Do the sweet potato suffer from the Colorado beetle ?.

Gave up growing normal potatoes as the Colorado beetle hit them hard .

Any help advice please
