Question about Echo Rapid Loader, Trimmer Head
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.

I wish I had an answer for you but I dont. Did you ever have any luck getting the stupid line head off? I just bought one myself and I can't the line head off either.
