Replace trimmer line


The steps for replacing line in a single line trimmer head are virtually the same for many trimmer head types, like double line trimmer heads.
1. Remove the Trimmer Head Spool
Removing the spool is the first step in replacing trimmer line in any conventional trimmer head, but trimmer head spools can disassemble in different ways.
The trimmer head pictured above and below disassembles by simply unscrewing the knob around its arbor bolt. Other trimmer heads can use press tab and other twisting styles for disassembly.
2. Insert Trimmer Line and Wind the Line
Single line trimmer heads have just one channel in their spools for winding line. The channel will have a hole in it somewhere that keeps the line in place as it is wound around the spool. Insert one end of the trimmer line in the hole.
Depending on the trimmer head, it might be helpful to bend a small portion of the cutting line at an angle before inserting it in the starter hole. Also, cutting the line at an angle can help this first step on some trimmer heads.
Of course, it is also important to make sure that the replacement line matches the diameter specification of the trimmer head before beginning. Once the line is started correctly in the channel hole, you're ready to wind. Most trimmer heads will indicated the correct winding direction right on the spool somewhere.
It's also important to wind the line carefully, keeping it in neat rows as much as possible. The line will have a much higher chance to feed incorrectly during trimmer use if it suffers from sloppy winding.
3. Snap the Line into its Retaining Notch
A conventional trimmer head will have a retainer on its spool. Snap the end of the trimmer line into the retainer after it is wound around the spool. The retainer will hold the line in place as the spool is replaced in the trimmer head assembly.
4. Replace the Trimmer Head Spool
With the cutting line held in place, the spool is ready to be replaced in the trimmer head assembly.
First feed the extra trimmer line through the trimmer head eyelet. Make sure to release the line from the retainer before completely securing the spool into position.
Replace any knobs, bolts, or other trimmer head pieces removed during disassembly.
Your single line trimmer line is now reloaded, and your trimmer should be ready to get back to work.
Although there are many steps to reloading line the conventional way, a little practice and familiarity with your trimmer will speed the process up a great deal. Once you're up to speed, reloading trimmer line this way can take less than five minutes.

Need diagrams on how to wind line onto brushcutter spool model mtd pro bc230c-rs


Howdy Geoff,
There are basically 2 basic types of spool heads that are wound. This link will walk you through both types. Once you've successfully wound it once, it's not too difficult. http://community.homedepot.com/t5/What-s-New-in-our-Garden-Aisles/Replacement-String-Trimmer-Head/m-p/151/highlight/true#M4

Need two parts for homelite gas trimmer model number st -145 i need the retainer and the string head and the post can i order on line or do you have a dealer in s.c. i live in spartanburg s. c. also...


You'll probably need to just purchase a replacement head for your trimmer. You can buy one from PartsBuggy.com here. You'll need part #385-580.

Please note: The replacement parts shown when you click the link for the item # are replacement parts for the head being sold and may not necessarily fit the original Homelite head that may be on your trimmer.

How do I replace the old head with a new one?


Your old head should simply unscrew from the gear box. You should not have to disassemble the head to get it off. Some models have a small hole above the gear box where you can insert a small screwdriver to lock the drive shaft so that the entire unit stops spinning. Keep in mind that some models have left-hand threaded heads while others have right-hand threaded heads. In most cases, you'll unscrew the head opposite of whichever way the head normally turns while you're trimming. This is by design so that the machine doesn't unscrew the head itself while you're using it. You can find replacement heads for most makes and models of trimmers at PartsBuggy.com.

I just replaced my ink cartridge and now it's printing blank pages. I've unplugged & restarted the printer however the problem still exists. The printer says there is an "alignment...


Run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to get the black ink flowing through the ink-jets inside the print-head.

Some printers REQUIRE an "alignment" step every time you change the ink-cartridges.
It only takes a few minutes, and it prints one or two pages of paper.

My Craftsman 17cc gas weed trimmer wouldn't start.


Hi There, Check the primer bulb for tare or pin holes. Replace it. Check and clean carb jet it maybe plugged with debree. Also check for spark which you didn't say. Replace with correct plug.
Note; Do not use strong cleaners on rubber seals (O rings and gaskets) They dry up and crack.
If needed use a dabble of grease on seals

How do i replace the nylon cord on stihl fse 60 trimmer pg 19 of the manual says to consult the chapter on how to replace the cord, but no such chapter exists


* NO DISASSEMBLY REQUIRED(DON'T TAKE HEAD APART!)*
First make sure the arrows on the head are aligned and the bump head is securely tightened(clockwise). Take a minimum of 20 feet of line from the package and cut it evenly so you have two pieces of equal length. Next insert one end of each piece into the holes on the trimmer head until they are seated firmly(some minor twisting of the head may be required to get the line in more than an inch or two). Once you have gotten a couple of inches into the trimmer head you should have everything still fully assembled with a long strand of line coming from each of the holes. Now begin turning the gear shaped part of the head in the direction of the arrow indicators and the line should begin winding itself inside the 'keeper'. Once the head doesn't turn freely or starts to slip it's full and you can cut off the remaining line, if any, and get to cutting.For more visit www.CollegiateSunglasses.com for safety glasses and other items.

Remove the trimmer head from shaft


The entire trimmer assembly (from the gearbox forward) will slide off of the drive shaft cover. On the side of the aluminum gearbox assembly, you will find a single screw. This is the "anti-rotation screw" (do not lose this). Then remove the small (approximately 1" diameter) clamp from the end of the gear box assembly and simply pull the entire cutting assembly off of the shaft.

If you just want to remove the trimmer bump head assembly, then you will need to lock the bump head assembly to prevent rotation while you are working. If you purchased this new, then there should be a small metal rod included with your accessories. This will fit in a small hole in the base of the gear box assembly 791-182193 and prevents the trimmer head from rotating.

Then proceed to remove the following items:

791-180814B (replaces 791-180814) Bump Head Knob Assembly
791-147495 Inner Reel (hold the trimmer string)
791-610636B (replaces 791-610636) Spring
791-612026 Retainer (be careful removing this so you do not inadvertently destroy it). If you intend to reuse the trimmer head. If not, then hack, pry, stab, etc.. until you mangle it enough to remove.
791-683301 Outer Spool & Eyelet Assembly should now slide out leaving only 791-612483
Spool Shaft which I will assume that you want to keep.


I replaced my entire string head assembly a couple of years ago (and subsequently misplaced it and am in fact wanting to purchase one) and replaced it with a grass-gater or similar.

I hope this helps.
