First of all be carefull of what you hit with the trimmer string if you hit sidewalks and rocks or dirt it will cut it short also you might make sure the tensil strength is strong enough to withstand the abuse the trimmers being subjected to :-)

What do i need for replacement string? Can i go heavier or stay with the smaller string? This is for mastercraft 20v grass trimmer. thanks


the size of the string is critical in electric driven trimmers
it does have mass and the thicker string will over load the motor
stay with the recommended string size and keep to the recommended distance to the grass being cut
string line cutters work on the principle that the tip speed of the string is what does the cutting and that means that the first 1/2" of string cuts the grass
the rest back to the hub acts like a brake as it is dragged across the grass and slows the cutting speed and loads the motor
remember that the machine is designed to trim edges and not to cut down growth-- that is a job for heavier duty units

Grasshog GH700 spins but doesn't cut the grass


Most likely the string is not the right size in length and/or diameter.
Check instructions in the user manual available at this site.

My grass hogger line extending unnecessarily and never get line short ( i meant extra line never get cut off. I think i have two problems here Why line is extending unnecessarily? & why it's...


If you look closely inside the shield, at what would be the leading edge as the string approaches, you should find a little cutter that trims the line if it is too long. This can get dull. I have had to sharpen the one on my B&D with a file before.

How to put together a black n decker grass trimmer,has assembled the trimmer it's not cutting the grass should there be a blade in the trimmer


No, it is not heavy duty enough to drive a blade. It should have cuttting line in it and it only can use up to .065" string (factory recommended).

It looks like its working fine, but it doesn't cut the grass. Looks like the string is spinning with the turn instead of against it, if that makes any sense.


If the string is spinning it should cut no mater which way it is turning. maybe you aren't getting the trimmer close enough to the grass.

I need directions to replace string on black and decker cordless 18v grasshog


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.
7. go cut grass.
