There sould be a knob that turns counterclockwise to take spool off. If not there sould be two taps that push in and pull down on what they call the spool head. Hopefully this will help you.

Trimmer wrapped around shaft


Deborah there should be a little hole just towards the bottom of the spool head where you could fit a small metal rod in. If you can locate it push something small in like a 2 inch nail and turn the spool head slowly by hand until it locks up. The head should then undo . It will undo anti clockwise.

Most string trimmers are very similar and once you learn how to do it, you'll be able to do pretty much any of them. Here's a link to a video showing you how to string a Husqvarna double string trimmer which I hope will get you started:

I can't get the spool off of my Toro 12 inch trimmer model 51325. I have tried all the suggestions on the web site and it won't come off, however it came off my itself earlier when it ran out of string...


You are doing well. The Toro site states that this is a model from 1985. User manuals were much more concise back then and so I will have you view yours. Click on the link on the left that states:
Toroe Electric Trimmer/Service Manual (English). I have viewed it and spool removal instructions with pictures are there.

Did you re-string it? If you did it is possible that you crossed the string over itself and it is stuck. Check that and good luck...Lee

Cub catet weed wacker needs new string and I don't know how to put the string on....


If it is a duel line trimmer then:

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.

If it is a single line trimmer, just wind a single piece of string clockwise onto spool.
