Can I re-string the trimmer head or do I have to buy a whole new one. I have aEM4251CA string trimmer


You can restring it. If you don't have the manual to show you how to do it bring the head with you to a tool hire shop that deals in garden machinery and they'll supply it and show you how to fit it.

Need help restringing it


For starters, if you don't have the original, in-the-box trimmer thread, you should get the appropriate diameter. Ez enough, you just need .9 to .10 diameter thread are somewhere around that diameter.

Which attachment are you trying to restring, there are several. One will have holes for a "fixed string" with a label that says "stop" on it. This is the fixed string attachment head. Take a piece of fix string, these are pieces of precut string that come with various other tidbits in the box, about 10-12 inches long. insert the string through the head the inserted end comes out the other side. Pull that end out to the edge of the "stop" label. Repeat the process for the metal hole on the other side. That's it, now you are ready to go.

The other trimmer head is a bit more difficult. Unscrew the top sleeve to expose the bare, 2 chambered core - have replacement or original thread ready to go (same diameter as mentioned previously). Once you have removed the top, notice that there are two holes with notches in between the 2 thread chambers. The notches will indicate which chamber you will be sending the thread that will be coming through the holes. Have the thread ready to go, and insert one end all the way through the hole on one side and then out the other. Now you must get the string ends coming out more-or-less equidistant from the two attachment holes so that you get an equal balance of thread being fed out of the head - either with helper holding the attachment head or by just hooking the attachment head around a pole or something, pull the 2 threads through to get them equidistant.

Once you've done this, follow the notches at the respective holes to wind the thread into the proper chamber, as if it were fishing line. Finally, put the head sleeve back

For the other trimmer head

How do i restring the Ariens st 622 string trimmer


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.
