It depends on the brand of trimmer and the type of head on the trimmer. On my Echo trimmers, I install 18'.

Restring a pgt300 performance power strimmer, it has a white casing which does not come off preventing me from adding more line


There should be 2 plastic tabs which you have to push in, this removes the wider outer base cover of the strimmer spool, giving you access to the bump cap and line spool.

Depending on the style you have, one looks to be a whole replaceable spool unit, one looks like a re-threadable spool.

How to take reel apart to reload line


Hi Karen:
If this is a fishing reel, pull off the old line into a plastic bag or wind it on to an old spool so it can be safely discarded. Tie the new line on to the reel, and wind the new line on.
There used to be a closed face spinning reel that you would unscrew the face cover to access the spool.

If this is a weed eater, grass whip, some of the older units had a threaded centre with a left hand thread. Once unscrewed, the spool lifted off and you could wind on the new cutting cord.

Happy fishing, or gardening.

How do you put line on a magda pro star reel


Mount your reel on your rod. Run the line from your filler spool thrthrough the bottom guide of your rod. Pass the line througo the line guide on your reel and tie your line to your reel using an arbor knot. Put a pencil or dowel rod through your filier spool and have someone hold light tension on the spool as you reel line onto your reel.

Replacing strimmer line on trueshopping hmlp4304ni1


Hi, on the side of the black spindle should be two tabs, push these in & the spindle cover should come off in your hands, Inside you will find a dual reel, one length of line needs to be fed in one way & the other the other way, making sure you have enough strimmer line free from either the slots or the hole on the side of the reel put this reel back on the spindle & pop on your black spindle cover, Job done.

I have a Ryobi spinning reel SX4N,in excellent shape. Ineed to know how the springs go onthe bail to makr it work. Thanks


With the new line threaded through all of the fishing rod's eyelets, open the bail. You open the bail by pulling it over across the spool, until it locks in an open position. Tie the line in a knot around the reel's spool, and loosely wrap the line around the spool at least 7 to 8 times, then pull slowly on the line, to tighten the line that is wrapped around the spool.
Holding the box or spool of fishing line between your feet, so that it will remain close to you, start reeling in your casting rod. When you start reeling it in, the bail automatically closes, and makes the line wrap onto the spool properly. Reel the new line in until the spool is about 75% full, or to the lines marked inside the reel's spool. Cut the new line about 8 feet from the outer-most eyelet of your fishing rod.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

How do you thraed the line on to the strimmer


Take a length of about 6 foot of line, kink it in the middle and pass this through the hole in the spool. Wind the two lengths of line around the spool in their own divisions and in the same direction. The direction of wind is embossed in the reel and the line should be wound tightly and held all the while. When you have about 6-8 inches left in your hand, bring the cover up to the spool and carefully pass the two ends of the line through the holes, push the cover all the way over while pulling on the two pieces of line and ensuring that the lines stay on their own side of the division on the spool. Fit and tighten the bump nut and trim the lines to just about the cut-off blade.
The lines should trail out of the holes in the direction of the machine's rotation. Try cut with the tip of the line as much as possible. Cutting nearer the drum flexes the line and will lead to early breaking of the lines. Run the motor at a constant speed and rather move the cutting head in and out of the weeds to affect a deeper cut

Reloaded string empties and shreds continuously in seconds


It sounds like you may need to replace the head. It is designed to advance and stop, but your's isn't stopping. Try this: Clean the inside of the head and connection to the machine well. Put some graphite inside the spool and where it connects to the machine; be generous with the graphite. Put the head back on with some line properly wound onto the spoo (note arrows on back of spool). With the machine off tap the head on the ground enough to disperse the graphite thoroughly in the head. Now, push the head as though to advance the line, and pull on the line. If it advances a little and stops, it is working. Do this several times to be sure. If you can get it working like this, you're good to go. If not, replace the spool. Even with the new spool, occasionally put some graphite in it to keep the line advance smooth!

Best regards, --W/D--.....Please feel free to rate this solution. Thanx!
