How to remove trimmer head from Echo 230 SRM?

I am trying to remove the trimmer head that the Echo 230 SRM trimmer came with and replace it with a new U-Turn trimmer head. I read manuals and have not had any positive results. I even went to the place where I bought it from Home Depot and it's sad to say that they don't even know how to change it. Now if you ask me that's a disgrace. I took off the bottom spool section. After one takes off the nut and washer, what's left if the threaded screw and a spring loaded piece that is not coming out because it turns in both directions. If there is anyone out there that can be of assistance I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

I know I'm replying to a old post, but this might help others. My Echo GT225 might be similiar. Once u are down to the thread bolt & the round shaft part that spins in ither direction, u need to thread back on the line spool, at lest the botton part of it to hold the thread bolt in place. Then start turn that rounded part that normally just spins, it will start to thread off, as you are thrreading it off you may have to also start threading the line spool part off as well at the same time. After that you will need the tool that takes off the C ring clamp thing that's underneath. I couldn't find any info on this online, I just kept on playing with it until I figured it out, UGH.

How do you remove the spool on an echo srm-2100 trimmer


Most units like yours has a tap head feed spool. To get to the line spool, you need to push the spool inward and rotate it to release it. The line spool is spring loaded, hence the need to push it in and rotate it to get it to release. You return the spool to the trimmer head housing after loading new line on it the same way, in reverse. Hope this info helps.

Echo SRM-230 trimmer stalls when you give it more gas. Can get more RPM with choke, but still not enough to use. Trimmer only has 20 hours on it.


empty the fuel tank and refill with the correct oil/ fuel mixture as too much oil blocks the jets Machines do not like any e- mix fuels as the jets are not set for the mix.

See section 24 of your manual here. It has the information you want for lubing the flexible drive shaft and the gear-drive housing (if your unit is so equipped). This is a manual for the SRM230S model.

Hello I have an SRM 240 Echo Weedwacker . I was dumb enough to try to take off the head and put a new head on - the new head I had was the wrong head so now I am lost on how to put the first head back on


Please see page 14 of the following manual for detailed instructions (including tools to use) in order to accomplish this procedure. You see, you have to lock up the gear drive so you can get the head back on the threaded end of the driveshaft.

Need Help Installing U-Turn Trimmer Head on Echo SRM-210


It is ridiculous, there are a bunch of bolts, and then a multi-fit brochure showing a grid of nonsense.
There are instructions on the inside of the package, however that is how to string the line.
