Replace trimmer line


The steps for replacing line in a single line trimmer head are virtually the same for many trimmer head types, like double line trimmer heads.
1. Remove the Trimmer Head Spool
Removing the spool is the first step in replacing trimmer line in any conventional trimmer head, but trimmer head spools can disassemble in different ways.
The trimmer head pictured above and below disassembles by simply unscrewing the knob around its arbor bolt. Other trimmer heads can use press tab and other twisting styles for disassembly.
2. Insert Trimmer Line and Wind the Line
Single line trimmer heads have just one channel in their spools for winding line. The channel will have a hole in it somewhere that keeps the line in place as it is wound around the spool. Insert one end of the trimmer line in the hole.
Depending on the trimmer head, it might be helpful to bend a small portion of the cutting line at an angle before inserting it in the starter hole. Also, cutting the line at an angle can help this first step on some trimmer heads.
Of course, it is also important to make sure that the replacement line matches the diameter specification of the trimmer head before beginning. Once the line is started correctly in the channel hole, you're ready to wind. Most trimmer heads will indicated the correct winding direction right on the spool somewhere.
It's also important to wind the line carefully, keeping it in neat rows as much as possible. The line will have a much higher chance to feed incorrectly during trimmer use if it suffers from sloppy winding.
3. Snap the Line into its Retaining Notch
A conventional trimmer head will have a retainer on its spool. Snap the end of the trimmer line into the retainer after it is wound around the spool. The retainer will hold the line in place as the spool is replaced in the trimmer head assembly.
4. Replace the Trimmer Head Spool
With the cutting line held in place, the spool is ready to be replaced in the trimmer head assembly.
First feed the extra trimmer line through the trimmer head eyelet. Make sure to release the line from the retainer before completely securing the spool into position.
Replace any knobs, bolts, or other trimmer head pieces removed during disassembly.
Your single line trimmer line is now reloaded, and your trimmer should be ready to get back to work.
Although there are many steps to reloading line the conventional way, a little practice and familiarity with your trimmer will speed the process up a great deal. Once you're up to speed, reloading trimmer line this way can take less than five minutes.

Just bought a TE475. can't figure out how to replace the line compared to the traditional one-line configuration I am used to


Here is the info from the manual, the replacement line is put in near the center of the spool on the top of it, you simply feed it in. I have included a link to the manual so you can see the pictures. Look at page 10 for these instructions.

Having trouble replacing trimmer line


Hello. I just answered a similar question not twenty minutes ago. Hope this helps.

Please read all the way through this before beginning to actually rewind the spools.
1. Pull the spool off of the head. Clear the dust and debris out.
2. Note that it is actually two spools that are separated by a disc, and that the disc has a slot in it. The outer spool is the spool closest to the bump head, and the inner spool is the one that fits closest to the machine and has notches in it. If you turn the spool so that the inner spool base is up, you will see that there are decimal numbers next to the notches. The decimal numbers are your line size(s). I say sizes here as some machines will accept more than one line size. You will also notice arrows on the inner spool base, telling you which direction to wind the line on to the spool(s).
3. Wind the inner spool first: Put the end of the line into the hole that is in the core of the inner spool. insert ~1/8". Wind in the direction of the arrows until you get roughly even with the divider between the inner and outer spools. You want to end up with your line 180 degrees from the slot in the divider, and snap the line into the notch that is in the inner spool base. You want about 6" of line beyond the notch. Cut the line, leaving a 6" tail.
4. Wind the outer spool: Wind the outer spool like you did the inner spool, filling the spool as before, and ending at the slot in the divider. Feed the line through the slot and snap it into the notch. Cut a 6" tail as before.
5. Reinsert the spool: Get the spool close to the machine. Insert the tails into the grommets in the head, and snap the head into place.
6. Preparing the line for use: Push the spool in as if you were bumping it against the ground to advance the line. Grab the tails and pull. This will release the line from the notches, and should release about 1" of line in doing so.
You should be good to go.
Every so often, it's a good idea to put some graphite dust into the spool just before putting the spool back onto the machine. This helps when you are advancing the line. I do this every 8 to 10 times I rewind the spools.
If this fails to correct your problem with the spool, it would be best to purchase a replacement spool.
Best regards, --W/D--

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.

I need to know how to change the trimmer line on a weedeater RT112C


REPLACING THE LINE
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 EATER brand line. Use of
heavier lines could overload and damage
unit.

Also here is the manual if you need it.
