SOURCE: homelite st-175g trimmer

This is for a duel line trimmer. I hope this will help.

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position. Put cap on and GO CRAZY!

most of these use 2 wires coming out of 2 holes on opposite sides roll the firstwire clockwise, then the 2nd counterclockwise so that when the spool turns the string comes out its not hard

Homelite weedwacker fuel oil ratio


Hi cjchris66,

Welcome to fixya!

The ones I looked at use 50:1
Copy and paste this web address into your browser: http://www.homelite.com/service_support/product_owners_manuals

Scroll down to the string trimmer section and find your model in the list. You can download the owner's manual and check out the ratio to be certain that your trimmer uses this ratio.

Please place a vote when you accept this solution. Thanks for visiting with us.

Once you have the string wound onto the spool, place the spool onto the shaft and pull the strings out of the slots so that the string feeds through the holes without going through the slots. Good luck...Lee
