Hello, that engine was used on craftsman trimmers also and had a trimmer model number to identify and look up non engine parts. The trimmer is made by a company called Sarlo. I found the manual and a part number for the head but not a site that sells it. Looking for a compatable head.

I found the Craftsman model and it has the same gear box and shaft. The cutting head has been substituted to a new number made by AYP/Poulan/Husqvarna. Part number is###-##-####and varies in price from $15 - $24. You can google the part for the cheapest price.
