I recently lost both bolts that lock the shaft in place on the 15" trimmer (model ST1500SF).

Does anyone know the exact size of these bolts?

M4 (e.g. metric 4mm diameter) sounds right, but I'm thinking more like 35-40 mm 1-3/8" to 1-1/2".  SHCS = socket head cap screw.  Best way to get a replacement is to visit the local neighborhood hardware store (or big box store if you must).

We bought M4 x M40 and M5 x M40 socket head cap screws and the M5 x M40 screws work.  We also confirmed with the customer support that the dimensions for the bolt are M5 by M25.
