Hello there,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Please note, I am just a moderator for this category, I can only try and find experts to help, I can't answer the question itself.

Thank you!

I'm OK to wait for further info.

I'm going into hospital for a few days early tomorrow anyway

Seems to be little information available on the unit! But looking at simialr setups, the new cutting head just screws onto the motor shaft. You need to hold motor shaft and turn the cutting head CCW! This is a left handed thread. The motor would loosen the tool, if the thread was CW. The key is to turning it CCW. lefty loosy!. See if that helps. Thank you.
