    Thank you evwood,



    The instructions with the trimmer did not supply us with the information that we need that is why I have posted on this site.



    One reel you have to wind the string on with the normal kind of trimmer string, the other reel has two individual, thicker pieces that connect to it. We have figured out reelgate, one head is for normal trimming and the other (with the two pieces) is for tougher jobs, eg. bush grass etc.

    Thank you for trying to help.



    Cheers

    Kim

Your instruction supplied with your trimmer gives you the information you need. It will recommend which size string to use. Both reels should use the same string.

Echo SRM 200 series trimmer is great. I noticed though this summer once I reel in the new string, a short time of trimming later, only 1 side of the string appears. When I open up the reel, the string is...


For your machine, make sure you are using the Manufacturer's recommended trimmer line. For your model, they recommend using Echo brand .080" Cross Fire diameter line. You also need to insure that when you load the spool with the line, that it is loaded (in the right direction) so it can feed properly.

How to remove old string reel from ryobi 105r


After you line up the two triangles, push in and lift. Only the top piece will come off, then the spool is inside. I kept trying to lift the whole head and then the top popped off and I realized what I was doing wrong. It is actually quite easy once you figure out the correct way and where to pull.

Ryobi Trimmer


To install string in the Ryobi you do not have to disassemble anything: Line up the two arrows on the inner and outer reel, remove any excess string, cut two pieces of string about 10 feet, feed line in the side holes, secure line in hole where it comes out the bottom (it only takes about 1/4in. to do so), pull strings tight, then turn the inner reel counter clockwise to wind it. If it sticks a little just pull line a little.
To remove the inner spool in order to remove line that has broken inside, to clean the mechanism, or to perform other maintenance, grasp the outer reel and unscrew the bump knob counter-clockwise. Mine is often very tight and requires pliers to get enough leverage. While you are in there, clean the inner reel and the inside of the outer reel to improve feed performance. The shaft rarely needs cleaning. Do not lubricate. After re-installing the reel, add string (0.080") as described above.
