    I do not want to replace the line on my ryobi 725r. I want to remove the outer spool and eylet assembly (#16 on the parts breakdown). I have already removed the inner reel, slider, bump head etc. I am trying to convert it to a echo universal rapid loader cutter head. seehttp://outdoordistributors.com/pdf/Ryobi... for parts breakdown

    Does anyone know how to remove the retainer that holds the spool on? It is not a snap ring but a small circular ring.

Line up arrow on the inner reel with the arrow on the outer spool.
2. Insert 8 feet of trimming line straight into one of the two eyelets and push it up through the line exiting hole in the inner reel. Do not bend the line when inserting into the eyelet.
3. Insert the line into the locking hole no more than half inch. do not push the line too far into the inner reel. A small loop is formed when the line is inserted correctly.
4. Pull the line away from the spool until the line is tight against the inner reel.
5. Repeat the procedure with the second eyelet and use the same amount of line as specified in step 2.
6. Wind the inner reel counterclockwise until approximately four inches of line remains outside of the eyelets in the outer spool.
7. If winding the line becomes difficult or the line jams, pull the ends of the line away from the spool and continue winding the inner reel counterclockwise
Source(s):
P.S. To remove the assembly, grab the spool with one hand and twist the knob counter clockwise with the other. Sometimes it is on there tight.

How to replace the spool head


Once you remove the spool cap and the spool, you cannot remove the head from the motor. It is not a replacement part.

Stringing a husqvarna weedeater


The 125LD had a T25 bump feed trimmer head, depress with finger and thumb the tabs either side of the head, the base will then pull away with the white centre spool, take a lenght of 2mm cord, bend in the middle so as you have two equal lengths, hook the bent end into the cut a way in the spool and wind both lengths in the same direction as indicated on the spool, once you have enough cord on the spool secure the ends in the slots on the outer edge of the spool to stop it all un raviling, place the spool back into the spool housing, carefully place the cord through the metal eyelets, push the assembly back into the upper housing clicking it back into position.

I have a Echo Gas trimmer SRM-210 Rapid feeder dual line. I need to know how to remove the entire drum for the string spool? NOT how to re-string but how to replace entire head/spool, as if I was going to...


In your manual under section 12: Line Head Installation. You will do the opposite of what it says here. The key is to LOCK the gear drive so the flex-drive shaft won't turn WHEN you are removing the trimmer head. They use a special tool (maybe you have it). But a small-shafted Phillips screwdriver or the like can be put in the drive hole to lock the gearing up as well. Look for the hole in the upper plate and align with the notch in the drive housing and grasping the entire string head unit, remove it. Here is your manual, see Section 12

For your machine, make sure you are using the Manufacturer's recommended trimmer line. For your model, they recommend using Echo brand .080" Cross Fire diameter line. You also need to insure that when you load the spool with the line, that it is loaded (in the right direction) so it can feed properly.

HOW DO I INSTALL A NEW STRING IN A PRO CUT 11 for Ryobi RLT30CD trimmer


LINE REPLACEMENT (Fig. 8) (For Reel EasyTM Head) Use 2.4mm monofilament string. Use original manufacturer's replacement string for best performance. n Stop the engine and disconnect the spark plug wire. n Cut one piece of string approximately 7.6m in length. n Rotate knob on string head until line on knob aligns with arrows on top of string head. n Insert one end of string into eyelet located on the side of the string head and push until string comes out through eyelet on the other side. Continue to push string through the string head until the middle section of the string is inside the string head and string outside the string head is evenly divided on each side. n Rotate the knob counterclockwise on the string head to wind the string. Wind the string until approximately 20cm remains protruding from the string head. INSTALLING STRING IN PRO CUT II STRING HEAD Use monofilament string between 2.4 mm and 2.7 mm diameter. Use original manufacturer's replacement string for best performance. n Stop the engine and disconnect the spark plug wire. n Gather two of the pre-cut lengths of trimmer line provided or cut two pieces of trimmer line, in 28 cm lengths. n Insert the strings into the slots located on the sides of the string head. String should be pushed in until approximately 2 cm protrudes from the holes on the top of the string head. n Remove old string by pulling it from the holes located on the top of the string head. http://www.screwfix.com/sfd/i/cat/pdfs/89/p4763889.pdf

Rapid loader will not fit Toro model 51952 Is there a model that will fit?


Yes, yes there is. A seller on Ebay has one and you can view it here. He mentions the model number. In lieu of this you could always try purchasing a universal type head. If it's not compatible, refund it.

Remove the trimmer head from shaft


The entire trimmer assembly (from the gearbox forward) will slide off of the drive shaft cover. On the side of the aluminum gearbox assembly, you will find a single screw. This is the "anti-rotation screw" (do not lose this). Then remove the small (approximately 1" diameter) clamp from the end of the gear box assembly and simply pull the entire cutting assembly off of the shaft.

If you just want to remove the trimmer bump head assembly, then you will need to lock the bump head assembly to prevent rotation while you are working. If you purchased this new, then there should be a small metal rod included with your accessories. This will fit in a small hole in the base of the gear box assembly 791-182193 and prevents the trimmer head from rotating.

Then proceed to remove the following items:

791-180814B (replaces 791-180814) Bump Head Knob Assembly
791-147495 Inner Reel (hold the trimmer string)
791-610636B (replaces 791-610636) Spring
791-612026 Retainer (be careful removing this so you do not inadvertently destroy it). If you intend to reuse the trimmer head. If not, then hack, pry, stab, etc.. until you mangle it enough to remove.
791-683301 Outer Spool & Eyelet Assembly should now slide out leaving only 791-612483
Spool Shaft which I will assume that you want to keep.


I replaced my entire string head assembly a couple of years ago (and subsequently misplaced it and am in fact wanting to purchase one) and replaced it with a grass-gater or similar.

I hope this helps.

Don't know how to install new string on Echo SRM 2400


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.

Or sometimes you unscrew a retaining bolt set into a plastic "lug", the spool drops out, refill t with line, replace it putting line through holes in the spool casing, refit the "lug" and tighten it again. I think I have the manual for this though and if so maybe I can send you a link to images on MSN Homepage to help you..
