Most trimmers have a way to "lock" the shaft to stop it from turning so that you can unscrew the head. Some have a small hole just about the head where you can insert a screwdriver while some have an area just about the head where you can lock the shaft using an open end wrench. Once you have the shaft secured, you should be able to unscrew the head. Be aware that some trimmers, depending on your model, have left-hand threaded heads while some have right-hand threaded heads, so you might want to find your trimmer model's replacement head to make sure you're trying to unscrew the head the wrong way. Many models, with replacement heads, can be found at PartsBuggy.com's website here.

Your strimmer head has rounded where the bolt is located.You will need a new head so you have to break the plasic to get at the bolt and fit a new head.

Hoe does the automatic line feed work on a line trimer


Richard the auto line feed works by bumping the head when the strimmer is running. If it's wound right the line comes out when you tap the head on the ground when on full running.

Bump head wears out very fast on husqvarna 223L


Are you resting the head on the floor while strimming and wearing out the bumpcap? Are you hitting it too hard on the floor when you want it to feed out.? Are you using the full harness or the strap harness when using it.? Either way it should be set the the correct length, so the strimmer is just off the floor, i like to have it so the front tilts down, that way it would keep the bumper off the floor. Either way thay should last way longer then 2 weeks so i put it down to opperator error.

The cutting cord has disappeared into the strimmer. How do i GET IT OUT AGAIN?


Hold the complete string head assembly. Grasp the little black bump knob on the very bottom and turn it counterclockwise. Then the spool that holds the line must be turned to clear the locking plastic tabs and you can remove it and get to the string again. Sometimes the bump knob (little black one) gets really tight and large pliars (channel locks) can be used to grab it and turn it.

Cannot undo nut on bottom of Strimmer


Make sure you are turning the nut to the right to loosen, if you are already doing that but cannot hold the line head still to loosen the nut some feature a hole to insert a screwdriver or pin (supplied with the trimmer) or if yours does not have that: use a nylon strap or even a leather belt to wrap around the head, and then clamp the loose end in a vise or quick clamps and it will hold it in place well enough to loosen the bolt.

How do you get the head off


Okay, your trimmer has a "bump-n-feed" line advance, so, in order to get the head off, take hold of the "button" and turn it counter-clockwise (lefty-loosey, righty-tighty), it will screw out and the head should slide right off...CAUTION...there is a coil spring under that head so when you are turning the button, hold the head so it doesn't fly off and hurt you...or you lose the spring.

Hope this helps you...let me know if you need more info.

How do u remove the bump feed spool from the bump feed string head on my ryobi gas trimmer


Grasp the outer portion of the cutting head in your left hand and turn the inner knob with your right. Depending on model, some bump knobs are threaded and some are post and notch. Use a little spray like wd40 to loosen the mechanism. It may take a firm hand, but the two will separate so that you can reload the line. Consider reloading with the .095 five sided line. It cuts much easier than the round line.

Strimmer Line


rotate the starter pulley by hand. You should feel the spring getting tight. Once the pulley is slightly tensioned, usually 5-10 turns, release the pulley and let is pull the string onto the pulley. You may have to add some tension to get all the rope to wind on the pulley.
