If its the newer weedeater brand
All you need to do is grab the bump knob end and pull it straight off no turning
wind your line in the direction the arrows on the spool shows you
to put back insert line or lines into the holes and snap back on
be sure the spool is able to move up and down freely after install

Stringing a husqvarna weedeater


The 125LD had a T25 bump feed trimmer head, depress with finger and thumb the tabs either side of the head, the base will then pull away with the white centre spool, take a lenght of 2mm cord, bend in the middle so as you have two equal lengths, hook the bent end into the cut a way in the spool and wind both lengths in the same direction as indicated on the spool, once you have enough cord on the spool secure the ends in the slots on the outer edge of the spool to stop it all un raviling, place the spool back into the spool housing, carefully place the cord through the metal eyelets, push the assembly back into the upper housing clicking it back into position.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly (almost old at 56)
I looked up your parts and have come to the conclusion that you have items 13, 14 and 15 of this link:
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/images/poulan/RT112_.pdf

Watch the video in this link:
http://www.ehow.com/video_4426520_learn-spool-weed-eater.html
it should help you.

I found the manual here:
http://lawnandgarden.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/weed_eater/rt110_rt112.html

SEE PAGE 7 of the above manual. Includes pictures. Try pressing in and rotating the spool to remove it.

1. Disconnect the unit from the power

source.

2. Remove the spool by firmly pulling on the

tap button.

3. Clean entire surface of hub and spool.

4. Replace with a pre-wound spool or cut a

length of 30 feet of 0.065! (1.65 mm) diameter

Weed Eaterr brand line. Use of

heavier lines could overload and damage

unit.

WARNING: Never use wire, rope,

string, etc., which can break off and become a

dangerous missile.

5. Insert one end of the line about 1/2 inch (1

cm) into the small hole inside the spool.

6. Wind the line evenly and tightly onto the

spool. Wind in the direction of the arrow

found on the spool.

7. Push the line into the notch, leaving 3 to 5

inches (7 -- 12 cm) unwound.

8. Insert the line into the exit hole in the hub

as shown in the illustration.

9. Align the notch with the line exit hole.

10. Push the spool into the hub until it snaps
into place.

11. Pull on the line extending outside the hub

to release it from the notch; otherwise, the
unit will not function properly.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I need to know how to restring my Twist & Edge RTE weedeater. I've looked everywhere & can't find an answer that makes sense. PLEASE Help.


I found this solution on the net. I hope it helps.

Unscrew cap and remove. Remove line guide ring. Note which way to put line guide ring back on, slot to outer edge. Remove the empty spool.

Don't take spool apart unless you need to get inside to remove string. The outer half should be yellow. Cut 25 ft. of .065 line. Start pushing the line inside the spool from the center making sure the string is winding inside in a counter clock direction which should be shown on the spool. Keep pushing until there is about only 6 in. left.

Replace spool. Then the line guide ring, making sure to pull the string through the middle of it. Then hold the string on the slot in the ring while replacing the cap.

Need to change the weedeater line.


There should be a half sphere-like object on the bottom of the spool where the line goes. Twist counter clock-wise to remove.

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: Then just wind a single piece of string clockwise onto spool. This may need to be longer than 7ft.

String problem


Donna, take the spool that holds the string off. Look to see which wat the string is supposed to be wound onto the spool. If the string in on correctly, check to see if one or more of the turns of the string is overlaying itself. If there is overlap, clear it out by unwinding enough to unlap it. If the string is going the wrong way when you check it, remove and save the string from the spool, rewind it in the correct direction, put it back onto the machine and see if that corrects the problem. Woman or not, you are smart enough to ask, you are smart enough...Good luck...Lee

The string gets caught and is jammed. Give the cover a quarter tun to remove it. Then, pull the spool off with the plastic cutting string. Unwind it a bit and rewind it so it's straightened out. Then feed the two ends out the holes on the side when you put it back.

Go to home depot. look at the floor model and the replacement spools they sell there. Reverse engineer the stringing process or but a pre-loaded spool.
Otherwise,
1. Squeeze the tabs on the side of the head of the unit to remove the spool cover.
2. remove spool.
3. place end of string in small hole in center ring of spool.
4. wide spool with string in the direction of the arrows printed on the spool. DO NOT OVERLOAD!.
5. snap string into notch on spool and cut string leaving 6" exposed.
6. thread 6" of string through hole in side of unit head, replace spool, and replace cover.

Cannot get spool out of Poulin Weedeater Lite


There should be a round knob at the bottom of the spool where the string is. Twist off counter clockwise and the spool of string will drop off.
