Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.

SOURCE: I have a Toro 12 inch Toro Electric trimmer and I can't get the spool off to change. Any solution?

I am having the same problem - the spool should just come off by turning it counter-clockwise but is completely stuck. This model does not have any tabs that need to be pushed in to get the spool off. Very frustrating!

SOURCE: Toro& Electric String Trimmer: how do you take the bottom part off?...

Look for a couple small windows on the sides of the center knob that sticks out, push in on these, they are tabs that hold the center knob on, after that the string bobbin should slip right out.

SOURCE: Have Toro Model 1100 Electric

They do not make too many blades that fit electric trimmers as the shaft is usually smaller that the gas models.

How do you rewind the string on the black and deckder grasshog


It's annoying I know, but there should be a little notch in the spool, wind the string evenly round one groove. notch it, then do the same on the other groove but in the opposite direction. Hope this helps.

How to restring drum on Echo 210 gas trimmer


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.

How do I feed string into my Homelite Mighty Lite 26ss grass trimmer? I don't have a manual and I can't figure it out. Thank you!


cut a 6 ft piece and wind it (starting with the middle of the trim line) around the head with each head going opposite directions. When you get it wound up, you will have two pieces sticking out in opposite directions and they can be clipped into the small plastic slots on the edge of the string canister. THen press the ball on, and attach to the trimmer.. Just keep the string the grooves and you will be fine...


OHYEAH!!! dont worry if it keeps coming unwound or pops off the trimmer at first, it will happen until you develop the technique needed for a quick replacement


GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!

Grasshog trimmer line wont stop coming out and it won't break off


Rewind your string in the opposite direction than it is wound now.
If it is wound in the wrong direction it will cause the line to continue to feed out.
Good Luck, I hope this helped

No directions on how to re-string the spool on my TB-720


On the bump mechanism, line up the two arrows, then unscrew the bump, this will release the spool, then you wind the two strings in the opposite directions, the arrow on the spool will tell you the direction to wind the string, replace spool, spring, bump feed, and you are good to go. I hope this has helped you.

After putting new line in it does not self feed. I used right size line and everything seems to line up.


Possiblities are that the string is in a bind in the spool, sometimes this can happen if the string is wound to tight or too loose. Another possibility is that the string was wrapped in the wrong direction, I know have fallen victim to this in the past as well. Try these two ideas, and you should be fine. I hope this helps

One side feeds to much string the and it keepsgetting wrapped around, the other side does not feed the string out?


You have wound that string in the wrong direction. Both sections of string should be wound in the same direction. If you need further assistance, just let me know.
