Replace line


Two possibilities:

1. Buy a new spool. Make sure you bring your make and model/size to the store to get the correct replacement spool, or

2. Buy new line and manually wind it into the existing spool. Smaller lawn trimmers and edgers use smaller diameter line than larger lawn trimmers and edgers.

Good luck.

Need instructions on changing the spool on electric grass trimmer/edger


Turn the trimmer over, I put it in my lap.Remove the orange spool cap by squeezing with thumb & forefinger. It will come right off. Remove & discard(there has got to be something they can be recycled as?) If you are right handed, hold the new spool firmly with left hand with flat side with the arrows up, keep a firm grasp & use small needle nosed pliers(I use hemostats) etc. to free the loose end of the line where it is looped thru the 2 slots. Keeping hold of the spool so it doesn't all unwind, let enough out to feed thru the hole on the side of the compartment where the old spool was. 2-3" will be enough. Then, place the spool into it's compartment with the flat arrow side up.Keep a good grip on the spool until you get it into place. Replace the spool cap by aligning it in the 2 slots that it came from & gently squeezing again until it locks into place & you are set to go. Don't worry about feeding the line out to proper length, it will do that all by it's self.

I like to know how to wier the line om my poulantrimmer model ppo25\


Hi rlgingas...

1 Press the lock and rotate the spool counter-clockwise
Some you will have to remove the center knob.
2 Remove the locking ring if your weed eater has one.
3 Take off the automatic feed button.
4 Wipe away any dirt and debris.
5 Push down on the spool to release the locking tabs.
6 Remove the spool from the chamber.

Restringing the Weed Eater
1 Feed one end of the line into one of the holes of the spool, and secure the end that was inserted
2 Wrap the line in the direction of the arrows. Do this until until you fill the spool up with line.
3 Secure each of the lines into its own upper and lower grooves.
4 Re-install the spool into the chamber from which it was removed.
5 Pass the lines into the left and right holes and snap the spool into place.
6 Once the spool is in its sleeve and fed into its left and right eye holes, pull both ends simultaneously.
7 Reinstall the locking ring if necessary, reinstall the center knob.

Out of trimmer line


You should be able to just pull the spool off the end. Try. Once you have it off, look closely at the spool. You will find the starting hole/s and the direction to wind the string. Good luck...Lee

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!
