SOURCE: trying to replace ext spring on lawnflite 548

You don't specify which spring but if you take a piece of starter cord, tie it in a loop and hook it on the loose end of the spring, put in a long screwdriver, a piece of broom handle or anything similar, it will give you a lot more leverage to pull the spring. Once you get it to where it needs to go, you can maneuver it to get it hooked then just cut the rope and pull it out

The nylon thread has worn down. How do I get more of it to come off the spool which is still full?


Hi cmlontg152...

You will have the grass hog running and then bump the turning head on the ground and it will automatically feed out the line, the more you bump it on the ground the longer the line will be...don't make it too long at a time...only what you need.

I need a new spring to replace the lost one that makes the spool advance. Its a Grass hog that is a few years old. Not battery powdered, but electric. Can yoy tell me where to buy one or what size...


They have upgraded the old string heads (type 1) to a new string head (type 2). They say type 1 is no longer available. Please see part numbers 20 & 21 in this 14" Grass Hog parts breakdown diagram. The new string head is relatively inexpensive. If you don't want to get one, could I suggest you take the old spring (if you have it) and match it up with possibly a new spring at the hardware store. Sometimes you get lucky! Here is the parts diagram for it. Hope this helps!

What replacement line is used for the BLACK & DECKER Grasshog. 5,063,673 5,620,336 6,443,753 6,443,762


For the cordless Grass Hog, the replacement spool is AF-100. You can purchase these spool heads online or maybe find them at your local hardware store, but they may be hard to find because the Grass Hog is not made any more.

How to put together the CST2000 and install a battery


Which part of the Grass Hog did you take apart? If you mean the spool head, that is easy to reassemble. The actual spool (the round part with the line coming out) goes into the cavity on the bottom of the trimmer, with the line poking out of the hole in the side several inches (not enough to hit the plastic guard). Then the cover (orange with the spring on it) fits on top of the spool so that the spring pushes on the spool and the two tabs on the side snap into the holes in the trimmer.

Unless you took another part off, that should be all you need to do to reassemble the Grass Hog. Turn it right-side up and turn it on to make sure everything works.

The automatic line feeder dosen't work


You can have mine. It wastes line by feeding automatically way too often. Black & Decker sells Junk!

I have bleck and decker grass hog auto feed and it does not work


There is a smalll white part below the spool called a "lever". This is likely in need of replacement. Call Black and Decker at 800-544-6986 with your Model No, and Date Code (stamped on the trimmer itself near where the extension cord plugs in). If it is still under warranty they will send you the replacement part - if not, I loooked it up and it's less than $3 for the part itself.
