The grasshog xp takes .080 heavy duty line, do not use any other grade other then .080!
First remove the orange cap by depresssing the two buttons. Next unscrew the screw and remove the tumbler. You'll want about 50' of line for each of the two spindle slots. Start on the spindle closest to you by inserting about an inch of line into the hole in the base and statr winding it snugly in the direction as show on the spool, take your time and do it nice and neat and the line will last you longer then if you rush and do it sloppy. At the end leave about 6/8 inches and temporarily fasten the end on one of the nitched holders. Start the inside spool from the opposite end that you started the other and repeat the same. Once they are both spooled and temporarily fastened at opposite ends from each other reattach the spool onto the edger, fasten the screw in place and un fasten each end at a time inserting the line through the wholes each on oppoing sides. Then reinstall the safety cap and you are done! For taking 15/20 minutes and 1/4 the cost of buying a new spool and saving throwing the old spool away it is well worth it =)

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.
http://www.weedeater.com/ddoc/WEEO/WEEO2009_USen/WEEO2009_USen_TE475-952711797_545186833.pdf
LINE REPLACEMENT Pre--wound spools offer the most convenient method for replacing line and ensuring optimum performance. S Replacement spools are color--coded to ensure use of the correct spool with your unit. Be sure to use the same color spool as the existing spool. NOTE: Always clear dirt and debris from cutting head components when performing any type of maintenance. S Hold spool and unscrew cap by turning in the direction shown on top of the cap. S Remove line guide ring and spool. NOTE:When removing and/or installing spool, ensure dust cup remains installed over shaft. Use a pre--wound spool or refill spool with line. If using a pre--wound spool, remove tape strip from line and spool. REFILLING THE SPOOL WITH LINE WARNING: Use only 0.080" (2 mm) diameter round line. Other sizes and shapes of line will not advance properly and will result in improper cutting head function or can cause serious injury. Do not use other materials such as wire, string, rope, etc. Wire can break off during cutting and become a dangerous missile that can cause serious injury. 1. Cut a length of 25 feet of 0.080" (2 mm) diameter round WEED EATER brand line. Feed line in direction shown on spool. Spool 2. Insert one end of line into center cavity of empty spool. Ensure line will feed into spool in the direction shown on the spool (counterclockwise). 3. Continue feeding line into spool, leaving 4 -- 6 inches (10 -- 15 cm) unwound from center of spoo

I am trying to replace the cord on my mower, but the cord wont spring back in when I attempt to start it. Please help


the spring below the cord 'spool' must be wound tight before new cord is attached.disconnect cord,wind spool in the direction cord would pull it when starting until it stops & hold it there[spring is wound] release it enough to align & attach cord.release spool & allow it to wind cord onto spool.replace cover.

How do you change the cord on a b and d strimmer


Hi, W/D here.

Pull the spool straight off, out of the head. Look at the bottom of the spool, you'll see arrows indicating the direction that the line should be wound. Now, look at the spool. You'll see that there are actually two spools, made together. In the middle part of each spool, you'll see a small hole. There should also be a notch in between the two spools.

OK. Starting with the inner spool, insert your line into the hole about 1/8", and wind in the direction of the arrows. When you have wound the line to the diameter of the divider between the spools, stop. There is a very small notch on the bottom of the spools that is 180 degrees from the notch in between the spools, and at the bottom edge of the spool that you are winding. Click your line into that notch. Leave about 6" of line out past the notch, and cut it off from the pack of line that you are winding from. Now, wind the outer spool the same way. When full, you'll guide your line thru the notch between the spools and into the small notch at the bottom of the inner spool. Leave another 6" tail, and cut it off.
Take the two tails of line while holding the spool,and insert one into each grommet on the machine head. Align the line notches with the grommets, and press the spool into place. You should feel it click into place. Now, you want to tug on the line tails to pull them out of the notches. You're done!
I have one final bit of advice, and you don't have to do it this time...just keep it in mind... The head will sometimes be stubborn in dispensing the line. I find that occasionally putting a little graphite into the hole where tha spool fits onto the machine helps the line advance part work much smoother, and it keeps the head from sticking.
Best regards, --W/D--

Cub catet weed wacker needs new string and I don't know how to put the string on....


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.
