Electric Toro Trimmer & I can't get the cap off to replace the string

I had a heck of a time trying to opwn the spindle case to get at the line. Tried all kinds of wrenches, etc. spent too much time at Home Deport (where I bought it) being sent from one sales person to another without any luck. However I went to Sears and purchased a Strap wrench- actually two that come in a package for like 12 dollars. One is larger than the other. I put the larger strap wrench around the bottom of the housing and the smaller one on the top part. The bottom one acted as a stable pivot put so it would turn counter clockwise and the top one so I could turn it counterclockwise. Worked like a charm.

I dont know what string to use in my toro 8" battery trimmer

The thinner string works well in these machines and puts a lot less strain on them. I would suggest using a string of .065 range. The thicker (and more expensive) string used in the gas machines is too heavy for these lower powered electric units.

Toro& Electric String Trimmer: how do you take the bottom part off?...

Look for a couple small windows on the sides of the center knob that sticks out, push in on these, they are tabs that hold the center knob on, after that the string bobbin should slip right out.

Cannot undo the string compartment to put new string in. There may still be string in the compartment but I cannot get into it. This is a 12 inch Toro electric wacker.

There sould be a knob that turns counterclockwise to take spool off. If not there sould be two taps that push in and pull down on what they call the spool head. Hopefully this will help you.
