Testimonial: "I have wound line lots of times, i do it just like the manual. After i hook it in the holding slots and go to thread it through eyelits, it comes undone. Sometimes it works."

Testimonial: "i am winding it the right direction"

    are you removing the spool then winding the line on then installing it and then putting the ends through the eyelets
    when you are looking at the cutter head you have to wind it to the left
    winding it on in the wrong direction gets you the problem you refer to

SOURCE: I have a weedeater brand weedeater and need to

if its the newer type all you need to do is grab the black knob at the bottom of the trimmer head and pull it carefully straight towards you and it should pop off
wind line on the spool in the direction the arrow shows you there is a small hole you put the line in to start the line before you wind it it is labeled .065 or .080
wind about 10-15 feet of either .065 line or .080 line and lock the line in at the edge of the spool and thread the excess thru the hole and push spool back on and pull each line until it unhooks from where you locked it in .
this is the directions to the weedeater heads and spools mostly used on this product.

if its two lines then pull out 20 feet of new line cut it and put the two cut ends side by side and insert the cut ends into their respective holes in the spool and wind in the direction of the arrow until you wind to the loop then cut the loop lock your lines into place and thread it thru both holes keeping the lines kind of tight and push the spool onto the housing as it snaps in pull each line to unlock it from where they were held so the bump feed will work.

hope this helps you

Can't get weedeater spool head loose to change the line.


there is three types of heads push, screw, and snap. The screw type have a big ball looking thing on the bottom that when pressed lets the line out. the snap kind are verry distinctive they slid in and two tongs snap in to place you will be able to see them on the out side. the push head just push in and turn.
