String head removal UT-20501 (ST 200)

My deceased father in law had a ST 200 weed string trimmer. We got it when we bought the farm. I can not figure out how to remove the string head to replace it with a newer head.

This is for a duel line trimmer. I hope this will help.

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. Put cap on and GO CRAZY!

SOURCE: How to change the string

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, just wind a single piece of string clockwise onto spool.

Shaft heating up next to trimmer head- smoking polan pro150- and how to remove head for service


You can wrap a rag around the threaded end of the string head shaft after removing the bump knob to hold in place while turning the upper part of the string head counterclockwise to remove. Then you can do the same to remove the metal shaft adapter nut above that, exposing the flex shaft in its entirety.

Pulling string on weed eater does not want to turn


It's possible that the engine has seized if the pull cord won't turn the engine over. Remove the starter mechanism from the engine and try to turn the flywheel by hand. One or more of the mounting screws may be hidden under a decal or other label. If the engine won't turn at all, remove the muffler and check the piston skirt for bad scoring--which usually means either dirt inhalation (bad air cleaner) or running the unit on straight gasoline. Either of these conditions require replacement of the cylinder, piston and ring(s) plus labor if you farm out the repair. Weigh the approximate cost of up to $150 against a new trimmer. Hope this helps!

St1000/type 1 grass/weed trimmer - How do I remove the head?


Yes, there should be a lock hole on the base of the bump head, spin around until both holes align and stick a pin through them both and the base will be locked.
Now spin the head off.
The new one will come with adapters if you need them.

Have a Ryobi weed wacker 725r 31cc click link Trimmer Plus. No more line-can't figure out how to remove bottom to replace the line or what kind of line to replace with. Deceased husband lost directions...


i also have a ryobi weed wacker. if it is the same. you don"t have to remove the button. line up the 2 arrows one on wheel with bumpy edges and one by the button. you should see 2 holes feed a 2-3 foot piece of line into the hole the line comes out of for cutting and it should come out of a curved holw on the bottom by the button .tuck the end into a small round hole . pull line tight (tug on the section that you cut with). wind the string by turn the ring around the button. til desired length. if this doesn't work. google you model # and look for a manual (manual for ryobi weed wacker model # ------------.)

I don't know how to load line into the Troy Bilt Speedlock head


cut to pieces of string about 8 ft long. run your line through the holes on the side of the head. you will see 2 smaller holes on the inside. put the string in those 2 holes and begin turning your head to install the string.
