SOURCE: I have a Toro 12 inch Toro Electric trimmer and I can't get the spool off to change. Any solution?

I am having the same problem - the spool should just come off by turning it counter-clockwise but is completely stuck. This model does not have any tabs that need to be pushed in to get the spool off. Very frustrating!

How do I replace the line in an 11 inch electric toro trimmer I can't turn the part that would come off to put new line in.


All I can do is refer you to the manufacturer's instructions. See page 5 after downloading your user manual. If you can not turn the cap off, then the cap is possibly cross threaded onto the shaft end and/or the threaded end if the driveshaft is stripped. See if the user instructions are of help to you.

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.

What thread is on a older toro gas straight shaft? it doesn't appear to be 3/8-24 LH but its close.


I like this question as it poses quite a challenge! Older Echos have the left handed threads on their crankshafts (and possibly even now)...but the shaft off the gear head would really confuse people who can't remove the head anyway if it was LH and that job in itself is a challenge also. Do you have any hardware that will thread onto it?...never seen an old Toro before! yes, 3/8 24 is a pretty standard SAE size...but certainly the Toro shaft could be close to that and some other size entirely > I hate to think in terms of metric on this.

This can and is a frustrating problem. Some things that help are to be sure to use the right size of trimmer line. Be careful when rewinding the reel to not twist and cross the lines. I realize we should not have to give this much attention to it, but until somebody "builds a better mousetrap", we only have so much to work with.

String breaking


Check to ensure that the string is the correct size as specified in the owners manual. If ok check age of the string. If old it has a tendancy to be brittle. If new and supple try letting the trimmer get up to full speed and let the tip of the string do the cutting. Avoid taking on too much at once with this trimmer as the electric and battery trimmers are not as powerful as their gas counterparts. I hope this helps.
