How to replace the spool head


Once you remove the spool cap and the spool, you cannot remove the head from the motor. It is not a replacement part.

Replacing the spool of string for my black and decker 12v electric trimer ? grasshog model


If it is the same as my old 12V version, flip it over and look at the bottom, this is the cap for the string, on the sides there are two push button latches, depress and pull the cap off. Then reach in and remove the old spool. Insert the new spool with the circular sawtooth design to the inside and push the end of the string through the hole in the side. Replace cap ensuring that both latches engage.

I need to know how to restring my Twist & Edge RTE weedeater. I've looked everywhere & can't find an answer that makes sense. PLEASE Help.


I found this solution on the net. I hope it helps.

Unscrew cap and remove. Remove line guide ring. Note which way to put line guide ring back on, slot to outer edge. Remove the empty spool.

Don't take spool apart unless you need to get inside to remove string. The outer half should be yellow. Cut 25 ft. of .065 line. Start pushing the line inside the spool from the center making sure the string is winding inside in a counter clock direction which should be shown on the spool. Keep pushing until there is about only 6 in. left.

Replace spool. Then the line guide ring, making sure to pull the string through the middle of it. Then hold the string on the slot in the ring while replacing the cap.

How do I load string in a P2500 string trimmer??


Remove spool by firmly pulling on tap button. Cut two pieces of line (0.080) about 12 feet. Insert the two ends of the line into the small holes inside the spool. Wind the lines evenly and tightly on the spool. Wind the string in the direction of the arrows on the spool. Push the lines into the notches on the spool leaving three or five inches hanging there. Insert the two ends in the two holes in the hub. Align the notches on the spool with the holes in the hub and push it in until it snaps into place. Pull on the lines to release them from the notches.

Need info on putting line on troy bilt 4-cycle string trimmer. Need to know how to get spool off trimmer to replace trimming string on the spool.


Hold orange spool containing string while twisting the black plastic cap in the center, counterclockwise. This retaining cap is loosely spring loaded, so watch for the spring falling out. Once this locking cap is removed, the spool pulls right off.

Do not know how to correctly string so string will come out as it is supposed to on my poulan pro weedeater, do not have directions


There are five ways to change trimmer line depending upon the style of trimmer head on your unit.

The first style has a locking tab on the side of the trimmer head that must be depressed while the lock ring is turned counter-clockwise. This will remove the cover and give access to the spool which can then be pulled out, rewound with the line (winding in the direction of the arrows on the spool), and re-installed.

The second style requires lining up the marks on the bottom of the spool tap/button assembly and firmly pulling straight out on the tap button. This pulls the spool assembly out so it can be re-wound and inserted back into the hub assembly.

The third style requires pushing in and down on the two locking tabs on the side of the trimmer head. This will remove the cover and give you access to the spool.

The fourth style of trimmer head is the Centrex. Remove the cap on the bottom of the head by unscrewing it. Remove the guide ring and remove the spool from the unit. Cut a 25ft length of line and insert one end into the center cavity of the empty spool. Feed the line into the spool, leaving 4-6 inches unwound from the center of the spool. Reinstall the spool, guide and cap, making sure the notch in the guide is facing away from the spool and the line is in the notch.

The fifth style is the fixed line cutting head. This style cutting head uses a pre-cut piece of cutting line. After removing the worn line from the cutting head, insert the precut piece into the positioning tunnel leaving an equal amount out each side of the tunnel. The ends of the line can then be inserted through the exit tunnels.

String is stuck inside reel and I need to remove reel to feed string out again.


Hi, W/D here.

The string tends to get caught in itself, despite our best winding efforts. Pull the spool straight off, and try to get some fingers on the spools as it comes off, in case one of the spools if free, so the line doesn't fly off.
Usually a kinked piece can just be pulled at an angle to free it up.

Best regards, --W/D--

The string gets caught and is jammed. Give the cover a quarter tun to remove it. Then, pull the spool off with the plastic cutting string. Unwind it a bit and rewind it so it's straightened out. Then feed the two ends out the holes on the side when you put it back.
