There should be a half sphere-like object on the bottom of the spool where the line goes. Twist counter clock-wise to remove.

If it is a duel line trimmer then:


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.

If it is a single line trimmer: Then just wind a single piece of string clockwise onto spool. This may need to be longer than 7ft.

Weedeater line breaks all the time?


this is one of the best tips i have come upon myself. one time i was fixing the broken string trimmer line again and the string was very dry. i tried spraying it with WD40 and what a miricle. now everytime i change the line i spray the line several times with WD40 as i am wrapping it. this has completely stopped all those nuissance episodes when the line melts to itself and then breaks off. try this and you to will be amazed at how wonderful it is to be able to run your weedeater until the line runs out and then you replace it without all those stops in between!

Weedeater gas line


I ran a short piece of coathanger that I cut through the fuel line and used electrical tape (stretched tight) to tape it securely at the end and pushed it thru the hole. Then I removed the electrical tape and cut off the part of the hose that had been taped. You waste an inch or two of fuel line, but that's how I got mine thru. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

Can't get weedeater spool head loose to change the line.


there is three types of heads push, screw, and snap. The screw type have a big ball looking thing on the bottom that when pressed lets the line out. the snap kind are verry distinctive they slid in and two tongs snap in to place you will be able to see them on the out side. the push head just push in and turn.
