According to Pivotrim, it will fit your trimmer, BUT...
I can see your dilemma here.
Here is a link to the installation tips page for your type of trimmer:
It is recommended for your model to use "Installation Method 3", here is the instructional video:
Now, It does look like the threaded, exposed end is a bit short. From personal experience with this model of trimmer, I found that the entire shaft would slip out overtime form the motor housing. With an allan key, you can loosen the joint where the shaft meets the motor housing near the throttle control. When loosened ensure that the shaft is as far up as it can go, then tighten again.

Hope this helps.

Hi John, I have exactly the same problem. I can't go further than about 5 feet before I need new line. I can't help, but I thought you might like to know you are not the only one having problems with this trimmer!!

How do I remove the spoolhead so as to afix the pivotrim head

I installed the Pivo trim head yesterday. The info that came with the unit will show you how to install it on ANY Weed Eater Unit. Also they have videos on their web site at:

Look on the end of the shaft of your weed eater at the head. Mine was a 25cc Poulan/weed eater SST45 and it has a hole that you need to stick a HEX KEY in so the shaft does not move when you try to remove it. ALSO it has a BACKWARDS THREAD!!! So "Right is NOT Tight." Left is to tighten and turn towards the right to get the head to unscrew so you can put on the Pivotrim Head. Also you can use ANY Weed Eater line on the unit. As I tried several different lines and found different uses for different lines. Such as edging and trimming against fences. Best after Market Weed Eater head I have EVER used. :-)

Enjoy! :-D
