SOURCE: I need to know how to re-string my John Deere

Hello, W/D here.

I'm afraid that mental pictures are the best I can do, but bear with me; I'm good at it....We'll go over the spool parts, and the first time you wind tha spool, don't put any line on it....just read the directions while you hold the spool in your hands. Get a feel for what you are going to do. See how it will fit where it needs to go.....
All right......
Pull the spool out of the head.
Just look at it. You'll see that it is actually two spools.
Look at the divider between the spools. See the notch?
Look at the middle of the spools, or the core, where the line winds on the spool. See the small holes, one for each spool?
Flip the spools upside down. Look at the bottom. Note the notches in the rim of the bottom, and the arrows indicating the direction to wind the line. Look near the notches. There should be numbers next to the notches. This is the line size that fits your machine.
Take a brief look into the hole where the spool will attach to the head. We'll talk about that in a minute.
All right, let's do it. Remember, no line for the first walk thru. Take your line and snip the end at an angle, say about 45 degrees. Now take the pointed end and poke it about 1/8" into the small hole in the core of the inner spool (the spool closest to the bottom of the spool assembly). The purpose of placing the line in the hole is to anchor the line while you wrap (load) the spool. Start wrapping the line on the spool, going in the direction of the arrows. When you have that spool wrapped almost to the diameter of the rim, place the line in the bottom rim notch that is 180 degrees from the notch that is in between the spools. The line should fit into the notch snugly. You want about 6" of line to hang out past the notch and cut it so you have a 6" tail hanging out.
Now, fill the outer spool the same way. When you get it full, you'll pass that line into the notch in between the spools, and anchor it into the notch on the rim. Again, leave about a 6" tail, and cut it off.
Hard part's done. Get the spool close to the head, and thread the tails into the grommets on the machine head. Once both ends are in the grommets, straighten up the spool (align the notches holding the tails with the grommets) and push the spool into the head.
Almost there! When the spool is firmly set in the head, you'll feel a bit of a click, Grasp the tails, and tug on them enough to pull them out of the notches that were anchoring them to the rim.
Let's check our work. Push the spool in, simulating bumping the spool on the ground to advance the line. Once you have pushed it in, tug again on the tails. You should pull about an inch or so from each side, and then the line will stop.
Once you have that, you're done!
Now, about the hole in the bottom of the spool where it connects to the trimmer head....Sometimes, the line will be difficult to advance, so you should clean it out a bit from time-to-time. The trick that will help you is that, after cleaning it, put a little graphite dust in the hole. This lubricates the advancing mechanism without leaving an oily residue that will collect debris. Don't do it this time, maybe not next time, just some time. I probably do this maybe every eighth or tenth time I wind the spools or so. I buy the graphite usually at Lowe's or similar. It's used for locks, but you an also get it at Hobby Lobby where it's used for Cub Scout race cars (Pinewood Derby). Same stuff.
Sorry about no pictures. Turns out you didn't need them after all!
You've been a great student, and it's been a pleasure.
Best regards, --W/D--

SOURCE: how do I replace the pull cord on a ryobi #ss30 weed trimmer

You need a long skinny T25 torque driver (sold in a pack at Lowe's with 3 other sizes.)

Take off the 4 screws in the back to reveal the piston. Get a wooden dowel (or a wooden spoon if your wife isn't around) and stick it in to the piston to block it from spinning.

Now take that T25 and stick it in to the front pulley (cone shaped silver item that is preventing the housing from coming off) turn to the left and it should come off.

That should come off to reveal about a 1"x1.5" piece with a spring wrapped around it. That can also turn to the left and come off with an adjustable wrench or pliers.

Once that is off the housing should come away and you'll be able to get at the pull cord after removing 4 more T25 screws.

How do I change the string on a wheeled weedeater brand trimmer


Purchase precut pieces of string. Check the dealer or or big box store for the correct part. The precut string is easily clipped in. Remove the old piece by pushing back and lifting up on the piece until it comes loose. Put the new piece in the slot and pull it forward to seat it. Repeat for the other side(s)

I am trying to change the string on a Craftsman Weed Trimmer


Usually you "Push in" as you turn them. Or...there is a knob with a male thread shaft screwed into place holding it all tight. Hold the spool steady as you try to turn the knob off. Or...there is simply a "nut" to take off. But for the most part the newer wacker spools usually just "push in and turn/twist" out. Simple. to reinstall it or replace it with a new one simply push and twist it the opposite removal direction. FYI most lines can be manually "rewound/refilled" by yourself and reused over and over until they really wear out. There are little tricks to doing a rewinding but it isn't anywhere near difficult to do...or learn. Usually the price of a replacement spool is 5 times the cost of rewinding them yourself. Comon its easy! If ya want I'll help ya thru it.

Pull string for Weed Eater Featherlite Plus came out


If you have the starter spool out (the one the rope goes in)...Here is what to do. Take the starter spool and change the rope out putting it back exactly as it was. Leave the rope hanging. Hold the spool and set it down on the rewind spring. Turn the spool on the rewind spring until you feel it is tight enough. While turning, hold the rope in the little slot in the spool so it can go around without hanging up. Once it is tight, get the rope in line with the spool opening and SLOWLY let the rope rewind. Put on the handle and put the unit back together.Good luck...Lee

String stays out


You probably have to replace the rewind spring. If you are not familiar with how to do it, I would take it to a shop for repairs. If you have had your trimmer apart, then you know where things are. If you want to do it yourself, get back to me and I'll try to walk you through it. Good luck...Lee

Ryobi weed trimmer


I have one of this trimmers. It is simple to replace the line. 
-First line up the arrows on the bottom of the spindle. 
-Then feed the line back in one of the holes in the side of the spindle (this is the same hole that the cutting string comes out of). 
-You will see the line come out of the bottom of the spindle. 
-Take that line a place it in the hole on the bottom of the spindle. 
-Leave about 9 feet of string hanging out of the weed eater (do the same with the other side). 
-Then turn the inside wheel (I can't remember if it is clock wise or counter clock-wise but it will only turn one way) most of the string is rolled into the spindle. 
-Cut the string of about 5 inches out of the weed eater. You're ready to cut!
