Question about Toro& Electric String Trimmer

1 Answer

After going through at least 3 string-type lawn trimmers, I have yet to find one that can actually feed the string. I have used Black & Decker, and most recently, Toro 8" cordless, with the same results... They do not feed! The tap-feed is a joke! Why haven't these guys realized how frustrating this is for us users and design one that actually works? Everyone I know complains about the same problem.

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.

When I had this problem I replaced that ratchet toggle part that the string drum sits over. Do you use replacement refills or do you refill them yourself. If you wind the string in the wrong direction it all affect the auto feed.

String won't advance automatically. Thank you so much for any assistance! It's a Black & Decker ST 7000 edger/trimmer.


There is a rachet mechanism at the bottom of the spool. make sure the spool is seated fully. Also make sure the string isn't wound too tight or it will stick and not advance.

Automatic line feed melts together -will not feed- second trimmer to do this


The talcum powder fix that I gave for line feed problems works for this problem too. The powder lubricates the line, eliminating the friction that melts the line. They are essentially just two parts of the same problem.

How to feed line into a black and decker trimer/edger model st6000 electric?


The ST6000 uses centrifugal force. Once you mount the new spool of string and thread it out of the feeder and into the housing below, plug it in, give it power and hold the line feed button down, feeding the line. Within seconds, the line will feed out through the head and you'll be in business.
