I am a bit upset. I purchase a Black and Decker Trimmer and you guys want to charge me almost 10$ to give me a little bit of advise on a problem. Than I find in that email that if I have fixed the problem you want me to email you and tell you how I did it. FOR FREE. Well I did fix it. If you would like to know how mail me 10$. Only fair.

I have a Ryobi 700r gas string trimmer and I do not have the manual for it. How do you get the trimmer head off to replace the string?

Remove the large spool bolt on the bottom. Remove the spool. Inside you will find a friction nut. Carefully pry it up around each side with a small flat screwdriver. If it gets damaged then it will need to be replaced (hardware stores will have this). Once it's off, you should be able to slide the remainder of the plastic spool off.

Versapak battery will not hold charge

If it is an old battery (3 plus years) it probably needs to be replaced. The other failure point is the charger. That can be checked with a volt meter. should be about 4 volts for each battery in the system. 1 battery 4 v, 2 batteries 8 v. Depending on the system it maybe either ac or dc. Try both with your volt metter.
Amazon seems to have the least expensive replacements.

How long to charge battery?

bateries have their own specifications.You can read it on the label.But,most of all it must be charge from 12-15 hrs. on its very first charging ( for a new battery) and later on or for the second time and so on, you may charge it 2 to 4 hrs.,sometimes 8 hrs..Leting you know,a battery can be charge even a short span of time,for example is 30 minutes only.In that 30 minutes try to measure its stored volt using a volt meter or a multi-tester,and the result is laready 12 volts (if your batery is 12 volts.)do you believe that? YES.! because a battery is so easy to store power.But,the problem is that its so easy to drain its stored power.You know why?because the current or amper of the baterry is still weak that the given specification.,.So,for short explanation,the longer time you charge your batery equals the longer time to drain the power.For example: when you charge the batery within 4 hours,thus the batery will be drained after 4 hours.
