Question about Garden
My Grasshog #NST2118 shaft does not rotate freely. Seems the shaft is jammed up with grass or it is rusty and needs greasing. How do I remove the housing for the spool assembly to see if the shaft is bound up with grass or if greasing/oiling is needed?

Hi there, I just thought I'd mention that I also have a Black & Decker GL720 with the same problem. I'm pretty sure it is less than 1 year old too, so well within the 2 year manufacturer's guarantee here in the UK. I think it may be a UK specific model and the phone number from MrFixIt looks like a US number.
I have tried taking the plastic casing apart, but with no luck, as the two halves won't come apart easily, even after removing all the screws. Ah! OK, I've found out the reason that it wouldn't come apart now, there is a screw hidden under the 123 sticker.
It's all apart now, and I see what is wrong, there is a belt running between a small cog and a large cog, and in my case the large cog has partially melted and the belt has come off. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I can get the replacement part now. Hopefully with yours, MrFixit, the belt might have just slipped off, fingers crossed.
Anyway, here is a service diagram of it in case it will help anybody, but as you will see it says only certain parts can be ordered. If anyone locates a supplier of all the parts please post it here.

Is this the cordless Grass Hog? Turn the trimmer upside down so you're looking at the bottom. There are two orange tabs on either side of the spool -- push these in and the head should pop up so you can pull it out.
On the new spool, feed the cord out several inches and stick it through the hole in the trimmer where the old cord stuck out. Then pop the spool into the cavity so that the orange cover faces out (toward you). Pull the cord taut and make sure it is not long enough to hit the plastic guard. If it is too long and it touches the guard, pull the spool off and wind the cord in a little bit. If the cord is too short, pull the spool off and thread out a little bit more length and try again.
Turn the trimmer right side up and turn it on to make sure it works. If you hear a loud rapid thumping sound that sounds sort of like a machine gun, the cord is too long and is hitting the plastic guard.
