Empty spool needs replacemant ?

Hi Rick:
"Bump feed" spools are designed to be able to be re-loaded.

There is usually a screw-in retainer (often with a reverse thread so it turns clockwise to remove) that allows the spool to be removed. Then it is a matter of winding on enough line to go and attack the weeds again.

Restring a pgt300 performance power strimmer, it has a white casing which does not come off preventing me from adding more line

There should be 2 plastic tabs which you have to push in, this removes the wider outer base cover of the strimmer spool, giving you access to the bump cap and line spool.

Depending on the style you have, one looks to be a whole replaceable spool unit, one looks like a re-threadable spool.

How to remove spool on bosch ART23G

To remove a spool from Bosch Easy Trim, place it on the floor or a work bench. Next, turn the middle nut to the right to remove the center. When done, remove the spool and line as well as the bottom casing. clean the line and spool using soapy water. reinstall the Trimmer parts the same way you removed them after you are done. worth taking the time to clean it when u have it apart.

I have a 27cc Craftsman 2-cycle weed trimmer, dual line, bump advance. I haven't got the manual and don't know how to get the bottom off to replace the line. I have pushed and twisted, but it...

Hi there, I just came across your post while looking for my own answers.

If you haven't yet found the answer, try this: Hold the spool immobile and twist the knob counter-clockwise. If your machine is like mine the knob will simply twist off (it is on a threaded shank that goes into the reel cover.)

If you have the model number, the manual is probably available on at

Bump feed replacement line cannot be removed . It sounds as though the hold shaft is turning

You should be able to remove the bump knob and then the inner spool. To keep the shaft from turning, try to grasp the dust cover with some vise grips or large adjustable pliars to hold it and just remove the knob. Spray penetrating oil under it if necessary and let it soak a couple hours to remove rust and corrosion and try it again. If there are any holes above the head in the dust cover or arbor, try to insert something in there to lock it up, like a slender scredriver. Here are the line spool removal instructions. See pages 14 and 15 in this manual.

Can not remove spool to replace string

If it's like my Ryobi, the alignment arrows are for feeding in string, not removing the spool. When aligned with the arrows, you should be able to insert two pieces of line into opposite sides of the housing. The ends of the line will come out of the spool next to a tiny hole. Put the end of each of the two lines into the holes, then pull the two lines from the outside. This will lock the ends of the line into the tiny holes in the housing. Now you can turn the housing by hand to wind the lines onto the spool. I think it will take about ten feet of line (on each side).

Alternatively, spin the bump stop out of the assembly. This holds the spool in, so when the bump stop is removed, the spool comes right out.

I hope this helps.
