I can tell you what is is, the belt came off inside. Mine is doing the same thing, I took the case off and looked inside, the belt had come off the metal wheel. I put it back on but it keeps coming off. Im thinking theres a piece I must have lost that helps hold it on. Thats what Im looking for now. If you can get the belt back on and to stay on then it will work again.

    It is impossible to get the belt back on. I wish I would have read these problems before I bought it. The weed wacker doesn't even work for one season!

Grasshog GH700 spins but doesn't cut the grass


Most likely the string is not the right size in length and/or diameter.
Check instructions in the user manual available at this site.

I need a new spring to replace the lost one that makes the spool advance. Its a Grass hog that is a few years old. Not battery powdered, but electric. Can yoy tell me where to buy one or what size...


They have upgraded the old string heads (type 1) to a new string head (type 2). They say type 1 is no longer available. Please see part numbers 20 & 21 in this 14" Grass Hog parts breakdown diagram. The new string head is relatively inexpensive. If you don't want to get one, could I suggest you take the old spring (if you have it) and match it up with possibly a new spring at the hardware store. Sometimes you get lucky! Here is the parts diagram for it. Hope this helps!

I just bought a BD Grass Hog and after 1 h of use,


If the noise was up by the handle it may have been the drive pulley breaking loose of the shaft on the motor causing the motor to spin and stop the flex shaft of the trimmer. Another possibility would be the small belt that aids the flex shaft. If those don't fix the problem check the lock nut that bolts the flex shaft to the spool housing. If the shaft broke free from the housing the motor would still run and the shaft would turn, but the spool housing would not spin if it does it could be stopped very easily. Definately check the warranty.

;How do you lengthen the string? (Have the grass


To lengthen the string:

- Turn the Grass Hog upside down
- Push in on the two release buttons on either side of the spool (they're orange)
- Pull the spool head off and spin it to release more string while you pull the string with your hand (make sure it is still fed out through the hole in the base)
- Pop the spool head back into place

Test the Grass Hog to make sure the string is not too long. If it is you'll hear it cracking against the plastic guard on the base.

It looks like its working fine, but it doesn't cut the grass. Looks like the string is spinning with the turn instead of against it, if that makes any sense.


If the string is spinning it should cut no mater which way it is turning. maybe you aren't getting the trimmer close enough to the grass.
