    Well I think I found the problem. I can't get the ball off :) It's locked in place.

    I think I found the problem. The ball won't come off. It's locked in place. Should it unscrew?

Cut a 6 ft piece and wind it (starting with the middle of the trim line) around the head with each head going opposite directions. When you get it wound up, you will have two pieces sticking out in opposite directions and they can be clipped into the small plastic slots on the edge of the string canister. THen press the ball on, and attach to the trimmer.. Just keep the string the grooves and you will be fine...


OHYEAH!!! dont worry if it keeps coming unwound or pops off the trimmer at first, it will happen until you develop the technique needed for a quick replacement


GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!

    Sorry for the slow reply.....but the answer is yes.......it should unscrew counter-clockwise and must be removed prior to lifting off the string canister



    Hope this address the issue



    GOOD LUCK!!!!

Need to find where air cleaner is ?


If your unit has one, it would be in front of the carburetor. Some Ryobis and Homelite trimmers do not have an air filter on them, just a screen inside the choke cover.

I was given a homelite mighty lite 26VT and I can not figure out how to remove the spool to insert the string.


There is a threaded cap on the spool that can get very tight, but a pair of Channel-loc pliers usually does the trick to remove the cap. Getting the string to feed consistently is a trick that I have not figured out how to do...

Once you have the string wound onto the spool, place the spool onto the shaft and pull the strings out of the slots so that the string feeds through the holes without going through the slots. Good luck...Lee

Installing new line on my string grass trimmer


Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.
