SOURCE: It has come apart and I would like to refill the

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.

Toro tb65ss upper string head removal


  1. Pull the spark plug wire from the top of the spark plug. Bend the wire to the side to prevent accidental starting.
  2. Place trimmer on its side with the trimmer spool head facing you. Press the two tabs on the side of the spool head with your fingers.
  1. Hold side of the head and slowly allow the head cover to push away from the inside of the spool head. There is a spring between the spool head housing and the spool that pushes out when releasing the cover.
  1. Pll the knob and spool out of the spool head. The spring should come out on the back of the spool.

  2. 2 --> Lay the trimmer on its side. Hold the spool housing tight in one hand and twist the cap counterclockwise with your fingers. If necessary, use a pair of large slip joint pliers to start turning the cap. The cap is the center piece of the spool.
  3. 3 --> Pull the cap off the spool and remove the spool from the housing.

I have an 1100 TORO Weedeater with the "push tabs" to remove the spool. Thru use/mis-use, the "tabs" are all the way in and the spool will not release. There is still line on the reel...


All I know to help you would be parts replacement as plastic parts are wear items and have to be replaced. Here is a parts w/diagrams breakdown of the 1981 model year Toro 1100 trimmer. I hope this can be of help. You can order parts here to replace your "worn out" string head and spool.

I dont know what string to use in my toro 8" battery trimmer


The thinner string works well in these machines and puts a lot less strain on them. I would suggest using a string of .065 range. The thicker (and more expensive) string used in the gas machines is too heavy for these lower powered electric units.

Need help restringing it


For starters, if you don't have the original, in-the-box trimmer thread, you should get the appropriate diameter. Ez enough, you just need .9 to .10 diameter thread are somewhere around that diameter.

Which attachment are you trying to restring, there are several. One will have holes for a "fixed string" with a label that says "stop" on it. This is the fixed string attachment head. Take a piece of fix string, these are pieces of precut string that come with various other tidbits in the box, about 10-12 inches long. insert the string through the head the inserted end comes out the other side. Pull that end out to the edge of the "stop" label. Repeat the process for the metal hole on the other side. That's it, now you are ready to go.

The other trimmer head is a bit more difficult. Unscrew the top sleeve to expose the bare, 2 chambered core - have replacement or original thread ready to go (same diameter as mentioned previously). Once you have removed the top, notice that there are two holes with notches in between the 2 thread chambers. The notches will indicate which chamber you will be sending the thread that will be coming through the holes. Have the thread ready to go, and insert one end all the way through the hole on one side and then out the other. Now you must get the string ends coming out more-or-less equidistant from the two attachment holes so that you get an equal balance of thread being fed out of the head - either with helper holding the attachment head or by just hooking the attachment head around a pole or something, pull the 2 threads through to get them equidistant.

Once you've done this, follow the notches at the respective holes to wind the thread into the proper chamber, as if it were fishing line. Finally, put the head sleeve back

Can not figure out how to restring


im pretty sure i have the same trimmer, take the spool off, take all the cord out of it, now look closely at the bumper, u should see an arrow, find the halfway and fold it so it 2 peices, dont cut it, and rewind the cord, ull see clips on the bumper thats for when ur finished itll hold the line back in place so u can put it on without hassling with the cords, once u get the bolt on and tightened, give those 2 cords a good pull and they will pop out of the clips and u should be good to go, if this doesnt help ya, there is a tutourial on fixing these on youtube.com
