Hi, mine broke yesterday (Sovereign HG500B Grass Trimmer). I took the grass trimmer to Homebase but they've told me that this model has been discontinued and they don't sell spare parts for it. I believe it's still within the guarantee period so if I can find the reciept they'll organise some sort of replacement, but if I can find somewhere that sells a replacement spool cover I'd rather just buy that and replace it...so far no luck.

    The spool cover broke on mine ( The Spear and Jackson one sold in Argos is the same cover but I cant seem to find a contact No for spear Jackson ) anyone got any idea's

  • treggers Sep 25, 2011

    Well, I have one of these models too, bought from Argos less than 12 months agao and the same has happened to mine. Didn't even use up the original spool line! Seems to be a fault in it and i have hunted high and low for a spool cover too. Seems to me that Argos sell these under false pretences and buying parts is nearly as expensive as buying a new machine! Clearly no-one wants to take responsibility for shoddy worknanship here!! I'll never buy S & J products again!

    I know an old posting but thouhg that this may be useful to others who visit this page. Home Retail Group licence the Spear & Jackson name for home garden power products so the S&J company have nothign to do with it. Spares are a big issue with some items. ALM make a spool cover for it and they are sold by Amazon and several othe rplaces though the price varies considdrably

As the spool is the same as the flymo one (FL289), does the corresponding flymo spool cover (FL288) fit this one too?

How to replace the string in grasshog xp electric trimmer


Ran into the same problem recently and discovered that one solution was to use a standard adjustable wrench and grasp the center, leveraging off the spool cover. If you look closely at the spool it is tapered so the very top of the hole in it is actually slightly smaller that the spool cover point it slides over letting it seal pretty tight over time.

How to change the spool in the black and decker grasshog


Is this the cordless Grass Hog? Turn the trimmer upside down so you're looking at the bottom. There are two orange tabs on either side of the spool -- push these in and the head should pop up so you can pull it out.

On the new spool, feed the cord out several inches and stick it through the hole in the trimmer where the old cord stuck out. Then pop the spool into the cavity so that the orange cover faces out (toward you). Pull the cord taut and make sure it is not long enough to hit the plastic guard. If it is too long and it touches the guard, pull the spool off and wind the cord in a little bit. If the cord is too short, pull the spool off and thread out a little bit more length and try again.

Turn the trimmer right side up and turn it on to make sure it works. If you hear a loud rapid thumping sound that sounds sort of like a machine gun, the cord is too long and is hitting the plastic guard.

How to put together the CST2000 and install a battery


Which part of the Grass Hog did you take apart? If you mean the spool head, that is easy to reassemble. The actual spool (the round part with the line coming out) goes into the cavity on the bottom of the trimmer, with the line poking out of the hole in the side several inches (not enough to hit the plastic guard). Then the cover (orange with the spring on it) fits on top of the spool so that the spring pushes on the spool and the two tabs on the side snap into the holes in the trimmer.

Unless you took another part off, that should be all you need to do to reassemble the Grass Hog. Turn it right-side up and turn it on to make sure everything works.

I need directions to replace string on black and decker cordless 18v grasshog


Go to home depot. look at the floor model and the replacement spools they sell there. Reverse engineer the stringing process or but a pre-loaded spool.
Otherwise,
1. Squeeze the tabs on the side of the head of the unit to remove the spool cover.
2. remove spool.
3. place end of string in small hole in center ring of spool.
4. wide spool with string in the direction of the arrows printed on the spool. DO NOT OVERLOAD!.
5. snap string into notch on spool and cut string leaving 6" exposed.
6. thread 6" of string through hole in side of unit head, replace spool, and replace cover.
7. go cut grass.
