SOURCE: cannot undo the string compartment to put new

There sould be a knob that turns counterclockwise to take spool off. If not there sould be two taps that push in and pull down on what they call the spool head. Hopefully this will help you.

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.

My Toro 12" Trimmer (Weed eater) needs a new screw down cap to hold the spool in place. Home Depot no longer carries them. That's wheree I got the last two Weedeaters.Please give me instructions as to...


Your Toro electric trimmer parts are readily available through www.partstree.com . However, to avoid having to pay $10 in shipping for a $5 part, you should try to find your local Toro dealer. They probably have the part in stock. Go to www.toro.com and search on the dealer/distributor locator to find your closest dealer.
You will need to know the model number (5 digit) and serial number for your trimmer. These can be located on a small sticker on the trimmer.
Good luck!

I dont know what string to use in my toro 8" battery trimmer


The thinner string works well in these machines and puts a lot less strain on them. I would suggest using a string of .065 range. The thicker (and more expensive) string used in the gas machines is too heavy for these lower powered electric units.

What causes a 2 stroke engine to have too much compression and therefore difficult to pull the recoil starter?


Nothing will do this...what is most likely the problem is either the recoil is going bad or you have the wrong spark plug installed.

Cannot undo the string compartment to put new string in. There may still be string in the compartment but I cannot get into it. This is a 12 inch Toro electric wacker.

String breaking


Check to ensure that the string is the correct size as specified in the owners manual. If ok check age of the string. If old it has a tendancy to be brittle. If new and supple try letting the trimmer get up to full speed and let the tip of the string do the cutting. Avoid taking on too much at once with this trimmer as the electric and battery trimmers are not as powerful as their gas counterparts. I hope this helps.
