Weed Wacker Help

I purchased a ryobi 2 stroke string trimmer about 4 years ago. After the use its gotten the trimmer vibrates so much that I can barely trim for more and a min. before I need to let off the trigger. Instead of taking it to a repair shop was hoping that someone maybe would have an idea as to why there is so much vibration in the shaft.

I will also add that the string the head is balanced.

It is possible that the shaft for the head is bent. With the engine off rotate the trimmer head and watch the outer edge. Does it seem to wobble?
