Pull the head off by turning the inner hub counter clockwise while holding the outer head still. Once the inner head pops out, turn it over and look for the string rotation arrow. If you can't find the string winding directional arrow, start the trimmer and determine shaft rotation direction (generally counter clockwise) and wind the string in the same direction as the head rotates when installed.
Pull about 5 arm lengths of string out of a string spool and cut it off. Place the inner trimmer head on an object that will hold it while you pull the string to even lengths through the winding hole (the support brackets of a pickup truck tail gate work well for holding the inner head while doing this).
Begin wrapping the string double wraps in the proper direction, laying them evenly and closely to the previous wrap, working it back and forth as the string begins to build up. Avoid crossing the string over itself more than necessary, the string can weld itself together if the strands cross to awkwardly. Once the string is wound, hold the head with one hand and slide the string through the outer head holes, avoid letting the string come unwrapped.
Carefully place the inner head down into the outer header. Avoid letting the string get caught between the inner and outer head. Once the heads are together lock the inner head onto the outer head by turning it and locking the round knobs into the outer head slots.
You can trim the string or let the trimmer guard do it. If the string doesn't feed it is either wound the wrong way, tangled between the inner/outer head or welded to itself.
Get a gater head for your trimmer. It has 4 easy to replace strings, that when broke off you can make up a new set with a pair of side cutters, or just replace 1,2, or 3, I put one on my homelite and it's the best thing i've seen since sliced bread.
YOU MUST REMOVE THE STRING HEAD YOU SHOULD HAVE TWO PEICES THE IUTER HOUSING YOU SHOULD CLEAN THE INNER SPOOL REMOVE ANY OLD STRING AND LOOK ON THE BOTTOM THERE SHOULD BEARROWS TO TELL YOU WHICH WAY TO WIND THE NEW STRING
to restring it all you have to do is pop the cap of string head pull the spool out and wind your string around it in the way they say to run it.its usually on the spool wind this way with an arrow.the cap shood be pushed in and turned to unlock the cap replaces the same way
Cut two pieces of 18" commercial grade line - one to mount on each side. Look at the series of holes, two on bottom of rotating head, two immediately above but on outer lip of plate. Go up through the bottom two holes, even up your piece of line (like when you are putting in a new shoe string in a pair of shoes) and cross over then out through the top two. All done. If you are using an adequate grade of commercial line you can trim for hours over the roughest of stuff without worrying about restringing.
