A manatee is a herbivore and eats over 60 different freshwater (floating hyacinths, pickerel weeds, alligator weeds, water lettuce, hydrella, water celery, musk grass, mangrove leaves) and saltwater plants (sea grasses, shoal grasses, manatee grass, turtle grass, widgem grass, sea clover and marine algae). Hope this helped.

How to change the fule line of weed eater?


There should be clamps on either end of the fuel line..1.. empty the fuel out of the weed wacker ..2..loosen the clamps..3..remove the hose ..make sure you are careful when replacing any fuel lines..so you dont puncture a brand new one..tighten the clamps good but not too hard or you can pucturethe hose that way too and make sure its the right one for that model. make sure the line is also fuel resistant..gasoline can eat through the wrong type of line. You should be able to buy the fuel line and clamps at any hardware store:)remember to ask for help from someone in the right department

I have a brand new craftmans gas weedwacker. The line went completely in the head (after about ten minutes of use) and I can't get it out. It is a bump type head. Any ideas???


Hi,

When using the weedeater you cant let the line get too shore otherwise it goes back inside the head, you will now have to pull the bump head apart and reload the snipper cord...

How do I remove the spoolhead so as to afix the pivotrim head


I installed the Pivo trim head yesterday. The info that came with the unit will show you how to install it on ANY Weed Eater Unit. Also they have videos on their web site at: https://pivotrim.com/

Look on the end of the shaft of your weed eater at the head. Mine was a 25cc Poulan/weed eater SST45 and it has a hole that you need to stick a HEX KEY in so the shaft does not move when you try to remove it. ALSO it has a BACKWARDS THREAD!!! So "Right is NOT Tight." Left is to tighten and turn towards the right to get the head to unscrew so you can put on the Pivotrim Head. Also you can use ANY Weed Eater line on the unit. As I tried several different lines and found different uses for different lines. Such as edging and trimming against fences. Best after Market Weed Eater head I have EVER used. :-)

Enjoy! :-D

The line on the B & D Electric Weed Eater has broken off. I can take the Orange cover off, but I do not know how to get the spool so I can continue weed eating.


Not avoiding the answer but if you google (" re-string a weed wacker video?" ), you can watch a video of how to do it, which may be a lot easier to understand when you see it.

How do you restring the line on the spool? I can't get the spool off but have managed to rethread it. Just can't figure out which direction the line should be wound.


there should be screws in the corners/middle at the back of the head. Phillips/torx head, once they are removed,you can separate the housing and then you will need to wind the the spool counter-clockwise, note the cord is not attached, once you believe you have wound the spool enough, you will need to feed the cord through, tie a knot, burn the end and the let go of the spool and it will retract the cord, pull a couple of times to make sure the knot is holding, then reassemble and start weed eating. Good Luck Tim

How do you add trimmer line to Troy Bilt TB539E Weed Eater?


This model trimmer uses .095" diameter line, your local home improvement store will carry replacement line and it will also carry a replacement spool with the line already spooled on it.

This trimmer is a "bump advance" trimmer meaning you bump the head on the ground while it is spinning to advance line out.

What to do to replace the line is place the trimmer on a stable flat surface (like a workbench), raise up the head if the trimmer and unscrew the cap and CAREFULLY remove the spool...you do not want to lose the spring! Take a look at the spool, it will show the direction to spool the line, spool the line then replace the spool by first putting the spring back on the shaft, then put the end of the line through the hole(s) on the side of the outer head, press the spool in place and screw the cap back on.

Of course you can eliminate about 90% of the headaches by buying a pre-spooled head at your local home improvement store...then you follow the directions above and can skip the spooling part. Cheers!

Do it yourself repair: common repairs for a weed eater Amazingly, weed eaters are one of the simplest yard tools to take care of. One of the first things you should do to keep your weed eater in good condition is to clean it. It is important not to clean your weed eater with water or gas, which may destroy the engine. The best, and easiest way to clean it is by blowing off dirt and grass with an air compressor or a leaf-blower after every use. The next most important thing to maintain on your weed eater is string. When the string gets low you can remove the lower part of the head (the part that the string comes out of) by pushing in slightly and turning the head counterclockwise. Cut the new string no shorter than 6 inches or the weed eater will not advance the string properly when in use. Thread the string back though the guides, making sure to follow the arrows on the guide. If the string is not put through the guides the right way, the head may pop off during use. Next, replace the bottom of the head by pushing and turning clockwise. You can totally skip this step by buying a string replacement cartridge. Though it is much more expensive, it saves you the trouble of having to restring your weed eater yourself. window.google_render_ad(); If you find that the head of your weed eater is worn on bottom or hard to get off to replace the string then it is time to replace it. This can be done very simply by unscrewing the two screws at the top of the head and slipping it off. Then, just slide the new one on and tighten the screws. After a few months of use, you may find that your weed eater is losing power or that it is making a strange lower pitched noise. This may be caused by a dirty filter. To check, unscrew the knob or wing nut on the carburetor. Inside you will find a small square screen, this is the filter. If the filter is gray or black then it is time for it to be cleaned. The easiest way to clean it is to blow it out with an air compressor. It can also be washed with plain water, but you must let it dry before placing it back into the carburetor. Once the filter is white or only light grey it is ready to use again. Always make sure to mix the gas and two-cycle oil in the proportions that are listed in the weed eater’s manual. Never use anything but two-cycle oil, normal car oil will not work and will damage your engine.
