Rotate the starter pulley by hand. You should feel the spring getting tight. Once the pulley is slightly tensioned, usually 5-10 turns, release the pulley and let is pull the string onto the pulley. You may have to add some tension to get all the rope to wind on the pulley.

Restring a pgt300 performance power strimmer, it has a white casing which does not come off preventing me from adding more line


There should be 2 plastic tabs which you have to push in, this removes the wider outer base cover of the strimmer spool, giving you access to the bump cap and line spool.

Depending on the style you have, one looks to be a whole replaceable spool unit, one looks like a re-threadable spool.

Replacing strimmer line on trueshopping hmlp4304ni1


Hi, on the side of the black spindle should be two tabs, push these in & the spindle cover should come off in your hands, Inside you will find a dual reel, one length of line needs to be fed in one way & the other the other way, making sure you have enough strimmer line free from either the slots or the hole on the side of the reel put this reel back on the spindle & pop on your black spindle cover, Job done.

Ryobi RPT 254c strimmer, how do I wind the line so I stop losing the line


You are winding the line on the spool in the wrong direction. The line should be wound on in the opposite direction of the way that the head spins during operation.

Just got a Worx GT151 trimmer. For trimming grass has worked fine. Problem is in edging the sidewalk. I start edging and it takes littleraly 2 seconds to wear the string to half it's length, needing to...


Hi Dave.
When you are using a strimmer against stone or concrete you have to just barely allow the tip of the line to touch the ground. If too much of the line slaps off the concrete, any sharp edges or roughness on the concrete will tend to snap it. What you could try is heavier gauge strimmer line which might last longer. I used to use petrol strimmer line on my Black and Decker strimmer which was 350 watt rated. I'm not sure what effect it would have in the long term though and may wear the bearings due to the extra weight.

Threading line on black & decker GL301 strimmer


Do you mean that the string keeps feeding as you try to operate the trimmer?

If so, you are winding the string on the spool the wrong way. Put the string on the spool in a clockwise direction. This should do it.
