Hi,

I don't have the manual, but this worked for me.
1. You need .065 trimmer replacement line. Any hardware store will have it. 2. Unplug the trimmer. 3. To remove the spool, turn the trimmer over and look at the bottom of the cutter head. On the sides are two small panels with 3 chevrons on them. Push in on these and pull the cover off. The spool should come out easily. 4. The spool has arrows showing the direction of rewinding the string (clockwise). 5. This is a two-string trimmer so you have to wind two pieces of string. Looking down on the spool (with lettering on top) start with the upper slot. Inside the slot are two holes, each on opposite sides. Push a small amount of string into this hole in the direction of the arrow. Then begin winding string on, also in the direction of the arrow (clockwise). The first bit of string you put in the hole should act as a "hook" so the string doesn't come out. 6. Don't fill the slot too full. Leave about 1/4 or 1/8 inch of free space. When you are done, cut the line and use the notches on top to hold the line while you do the lower slot. 7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 for the lower slot. 8. Drop the spool back into the trimmer. Thread the string through the holes in the head one at a time. One string for each hole. You'll need at least 2 inches of line sticking through the hole. Don't worry about too much line, the trimmer will cut it too the right length. 9. Snap the cover back on. 10. Plug in trimmer and go.


The oil gas ratio is:

Gas/Oil Ratio = 32:1 Plug = DJ-7Y Gap = .025"

Thank You

What is the gas to oil ratio for weed eaters?


Most gas weed eaters use 2-cycle engines. For the Homelite 2-cycle engine trimmers, use a 50:1 ratio of gasoline to the Homelite lubricant. (For 1 gallon of gas, add 2.6 oz of the oil.)

Many Homelite tool manuals are available here: http://www.homelite.com/service_support/product_owners_manuals . Scroll down to find your string trimmer.

I hope this helps.

Was given a homelite zipstart versatool string trimmer (25cc). what is the proper gas to oil ratio for this tool?


between 32:1 and 50:1 should be OK.

The best bet is to buy the premeasured 2 cycle fuel/oil mix in the bottles. They come with 8oz for a gallon of fuel.

Correct gas to oil ratio for Homelite Mighty String Trimmer Model


most trimmers are 50:1. or 40:1. i would use synthetic 2 cycle oil and use the 50:1 ratio. i know guys with trimmers that require 50:1, and they use synthetic at 80:1 with no problems for years. they say the engine runs cleaner. i am a part-time lawn care operator.
