There are a large number of different designs that can be fitted to almost any machine so the fitting and removal details will differ slightly but fortunately a close inspection usually reveals the process to be fairly intuitive.

A few in my experience can be removed by locking the shaft with a pin and unscrewing by hand, with a strap wrench or with a standard wrench if there is a facility. Most seem to need the trimmer head cover removing in order to gain access to the retaining nut or bolt.

You can't use the blade on most string trimmers unless you have a brush cutter style then you would unscrew the trimmer string head and attach the blade with the adapter that came with the unit.

Get a gater head for your trimmer. It has 4 easy to replace strings, that when broke off you can make up a new set with a pair of side cutters, or just replace 1,2, or 3, I put one on my homelite and it's the best thing i've seen since sliced bread.
