Continuous spooling of weedeater string.

The ''bump'' spool on my weed trimmer continuously lets out the string. It take three refills to trim my half acre yard every time i mow. Getting sort of costly. Is there some way to fix this problem?

SOURCE: adding trimmer line to spool on husqvarna trimmer-two strings

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: Need info on putting line on troy bilt 4-cycle

Hold orange spool containing string while twisting the black plastic cap in the center, counterclockwise. This retaining cap is loosely spring loaded, so watch for the spring falling out. Once this locking cap is removed, the spool pulls right off.

Stringing a husqvarna weedeater


The 125LD had a T25 bump feed trimmer head, depress with finger and thumb the tabs either side of the head, the base will then pull away with the white centre spool, take a lenght of 2mm cord, bend in the middle so as you have two equal lengths, hook the bent end into the cut a way in the spool and wind both lengths in the same direction as indicated on the spool, once you have enough cord on the spool secure the ends in the slots on the outer edge of the spool to stop it all un raviling, place the spool back into the spool housing, carefully place the cord through the metal eyelets, push the assembly back into the upper housing clicking it back into position.

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.

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 have a craftsman 32cc weedeater model 316791810. I am not sure how to replace the trim line. Is the line supposed to automatically length itself when the line breaks?


An auto feed line system will do just that and if too much line is released there is usually a cutter inside the edge of the plastic guard covering the string head. I use a Troy Built head on a 32 craftsman and I unscrew the bump knob ...twist and pull out the spring loaded spool....cut a lenth of line 6-8 feet or so....thread the two raw ends thru the two holes in the inner spool....pull them out until they are even with each other....then grasp each one and hold them side by side and wind them onto the spool in a clockwise manner. This is how I do the string head with a split boom that fits the 32cc Sears Power head (an older Troy Bilt).

Once you have the string wound onto the spool, place the spool onto the shaft and pull the strings out of the slots so that the string feeds through the holes without going through the slots. Good luck...Lee

Wind string on Spool


Most weedeaters have an arrow on the spool. Look at both ends, you'll probably find the arrow. Put your line into the hole and wind the line in the direction of the arrow until you have enough loaded.
