Question about Black & Decker 14" Grass Hog Xp Trimmer/Edger

1 Answer

Head of trimmer/edger doesn't spin

Just moved into a house with a black and decker grass hog XP. Tried to use it for the first time today. The electric motor seems to be functioning judging by the noise, but the head isn't spinning. Any ideas? It does appear to have been stored outside.

I have the same problem, the plastic timing pulley on the motor assembly is probably melted, remove all the screws down the side of the housing, including the one hidden under the label, and you will find that the belt and the pulley are both chewed up.

What replacement line is used for the BLACK & DECKER Grasshog. 5,063,673 5,620,336 6,443,753 6,443,762


For the cordless Grass Hog, the replacement spool is AF-100. You can purchase these spool heads online or maybe find them at your local hardware store, but they may be hard to find because the Grass Hog is not made any more.

My grass hog xp starts but the spool won't spin


This unit is supposedly the same as the GH700 drive system. There is a 5:1 plastic reduction gear inside the housing driven by a steel gear from the motor. It easily strips, melts, or simply breaks. The part is difficult to find. I have not found one yet for my situation.

Drive shaft either broken or there is a clutch. You might also look at the head to see if there is something loose there. Good luck...Lee

...the motor runs but head won't move.


the head drive is probably craked or stripped or the driver is broke, to check this, remove the head and inspect, these replacement parts normally are pretty cheap.
