How to replace trimmer line ?

1. Remove the cap on the trimmer head, it unscrews.

2. The spool comes off, and on the inside of the spool there is a small hole, this is where you will start your trimmer line. It it will hold it in place while you wrap it. There is also arrows on the spool showing the direction that you need to wrap your spool.

3. Insert the line in the hole and start to wrap the line in the directions of the arrows, try to keep the line in rows, or else the line may bind and you will have to do it all over again.

4. Feed the line through the retainer and reinstall the spool by lining up the retainer and the slot on the outside portion on the trimmer head, the screw back on the trimmer head and you will be ready to trim.

I cannot get more line out of my toro 15" electric trimmer. It cannot be empty, it has only been used once. The cutting line will not extend out any more. Should it not?

Sometimes the line can become fused together.remove the spindle and manually pull the line. Replace and the tap and feed should work fine.

I have a 13" Toro model 51358 trimmer and it constanly has no string showing. I have to remove the cap and pull more out through the feed hole. Why?

the bumper on the bottom is worn out or the sprin inside it is broken. You should be able to tap it on the ground and string come out.

After going through at least 3 string-type lawn trimmers, I have yet to find one that can actually feed the string. I have used Black & Decker, and most recently, Toro 8" cordless, with the same...

This can and is a frustrating problem. Some things that help are to be sure to use the right size of trimmer line. Be careful when rewinding the reel to not twist and cross the lines. I realize we should not have to give this much attention to it, but until somebody "builds a better mousetrap", we only have so much to work with.

I have a Toro 12 inch Toro Electric trimmer and I can't get the spool off to change. Any solution?

I am having the same problem - the spool should just come off by turning it counter-clockwise but is completely stuck. This model does not have any tabs that need to be pushed in to get the spool off. Very frustrating!
