    Can't remove black collar to get to motor assembly to check for loose connection. (B&D CST2000)

    I see there are two pins inside the housing holding the shaft. The one towards the bottom came out easily, but the second will not. I'm guessing with these two pons out. the shaft will come out allowing assess to what is keeping the collar on.

I was unable to get that ring off also... I was able to pull plastic side apart far enough to pull motor out and "rewire" it. Even fit back in when I was done... just barely. and was very gentle...

I do not know how to get the ring apart, though.

There are 2 openings on the top end of the black collar(toward the handle), stick a small screwdriver in each of these and twist a little to release pawls inside the collar. The black collar should the slide right up the handle and release the two halves of the motor case. Good luck!

    Just pulled mine straight up the shaft toward the handle. Gave it a good tug, too; but it popped right off. (I had trouble getting any results with a screwdriver down the sides).

It does not turn on even if it was charged for 24 hrs


When it charges, does the red light come on on the charger? Some of the CST2000 chargers make bad connections, and they don't actually charge.

Make sure the red light is coming on when you're charging the battery. If the light is coming on and you still can't use the trimmer after charging, you'll need either a new battery or a whole new battery pack (the black handle of the trimmer).

Hope that helps!

How to put together the CST2000 and install a battery


Which part of the Grass Hog did you take apart? If you mean the spool head, that is easy to reassemble. The actual spool (the round part with the line coming out) goes into the cavity on the bottom of the trimmer, with the line poking out of the hole in the side several inches (not enough to hit the plastic guard). Then the cover (orange with the spring on it) fits on top of the spool so that the spring pushes on the spool and the two tabs on the side snap into the holes in the trimmer.

Unless you took another part off, that should be all you need to do to reassemble the Grass Hog. Turn it right-side up and turn it on to make sure everything works.

;How do you lengthen the string? (Have the grass


To lengthen the string:

- Turn the Grass Hog upside down
- Push in on the two release buttons on either side of the spool (they're orange)
- Pull the spool head off and spin it to release more string while you pull the string with your hand (make sure it is still fed out through the hole in the base)
- Pop the spool head back into place

Test the Grass Hog to make sure the string is not too long. If it is you'll hear it cracking against the plastic guard on the base.

Have a cst2000 but do not have the charger


The charger for the CST2000 is part #243248-00, but it is obsolete now. You could maybe find a used one for sale on eBay or craigslist, though.

Good luck!

I don't need a manual - I need a replacement handle


if your refering to the batt handle then its a obsolete item with no replacement part number. your part # is 243215-00 and your best bet is to sell it or put lots of ducktape or epoxy or keep checking ebay
