I have a black & decker grasshog xp and I have never been able to use it over a few minutes before the head comes flying off or the line breaks . I spend more time rewinding than weedeating. Horrible! any suggestions other that throw it away.

    the whole spool housing falls off leaving only the shaft

    Black and Decker electric string trimmer and cordless trimmer..I have both...neither one will feed. I have to stop every two minutes, remove the orange cap and refeed the string. The string appears to be fused together in places. I've tried to use the pre-strung spools and ones I've done myself. What gives?

How do i restring my black and decker 18 volt grasshog?


Go to the Black & Decker website for this product, scroll down and under "Product Details" there is a tab marked "instruction manuals". There are three to choose from, but the last two have the same instructions on how to replace the spool or how to thread bulk line.

Hope this helped!

What replacement line is used for the BLACK & DECKER Grasshog. 5,063,673 5,620,336 6,443,753 6,443,762


For the cordless Grass Hog, the replacement spool is AF-100. You can purchase these spool heads online or maybe find them at your local hardware store, but they may be hard to find because the Grass Hog is not made any more.

I think this trimmer is a hunk of junk. Don't bother paying to get it fixed. I have had mine less than a year and a few minutes ago it just quit working. The motor comes on but nothing happening. I looked at the reviews and this seems to be a frequent and common problem. I am so frustrated. Will not buy another of these. It stinks.
