SOURCE: remove head to replace line

turn unit upside down so you are looking @ the underside of the spool. On the side of the spool should be a hole which you insert a rod to keep the spool housing from turning on the shaft. Turn and head will come right off.

Trimmer line is broken off in bump head so i cannot put in new line . How do I get old line out of head


You will have to remove it by cutting all the line into. Sometimes you have to melt it with a hot blade to get it out

Bought a used 80r with no manual and want to put a speed head but dont know how yo et the head off please help took the screw off at head where gear was and put screwqdriver in and couldnt hold it please...


if this is a Ryobi 80r the large part of the spool doesn't come off!!! simply remove the bump knob and the inner spool leaving the shaft and outer part, you will find most aftermarket heads either come with or require an adapter for this type of trimmer, the cone shaped upper part of their new head will go up inside your outer spool

Want to remove huscavana weed eater head


You should find a hole in the piece just above the trimmer head, this should line up with another hole deeper in the area. You stick a piece of rod in there to keep the head from turning. Use some pb blaster penetrating oil to help loosen up the head.

I have replaced the line spool with a new one and it will not run


hey mate, the best thing to do would be try eliminate sections if the head does not spin remove it see if the arbor that the head connects spins with the head removed, if it still does not spin remove remove your drive shaft and check if motor actually spins some of these contain sheer pins to prevent damage to the motor, I would highly reccomend this be done by a professional as there is moving parts and electric motor involved... hope this helps
