On most standard weed trimmers, you load the line counterclockwise. This is with the inside of the reel facing up towards you. You see; once the reel is installed and the head turned over for operating, then the line unloads clockwise. The spring will go under the bump knob and set into the middle of the spool (or reel as you call it).

    I misinformed you. The spring will go UNDER the reel and against the base so it is putting pressure on the reel allowing the line feeder to operate. I was wrong about it being under the bump knob. Most newer electric trimmers have automatic line feed and they distinctly tell you not to bang them on the ground. You will have to test your model to see.

How do you put line on a magda pro star reel


Mount your reel on your rod. Run the line from your filler spool thrthrough the bottom guide of your rod. Pass the line througo the line guide on your reel and tie your line to your reel using an arbor knot. Put a pencil or dowel rod through your filier spool and have someone hold light tension on the spool as you reel line onto your reel.

I have a L123 Husquravana brush cutter and I am looking for the lock nut that holds on the trimmer head. I am looking for the size to the lock bolt.


The trimmer head is not held on by a nut, the whole trimmer head is spun onto a 10mm male output shaft, to remove the trimmer head lock the geabox by inserting a 6mm pin through the top of the gearbox, there is a hole to take it, this will lock the drive disc, you can then turn the whole trimmer head clock wise ( left hand thread ) and remove the trimmer head. Parts are available for the trimmer head, it depends on which head you have, manual feed, or bump feed.

Homelite trimmer, gas, string - y is the string wrapping itself around the head of the trimmer?


The line on my new 26cc Homelite would also feed out by itself. That started me thinking the line was wound backwards. I wrapped the line in the opposite direction as was shown on the bump feed reel and now the dang thing works although the bump feed needs to be "bumped" pretty hard to work. Is it possible that the reel was manufactured with the (string direction) arrows pointing the wrong direction? The new 26cc unit is also underpowered compared to my older 25cc trimmer.

I have just bought an RBC30SET. I am trying to


To remove the strimmer and procut fitment first you need to lock the shaft by placing item 35 into the slot in the flange next to the fitment and through into the hole in the outer housing of the drive shaft, item 3. Then using the box spanner turn the fitment CLOCKWISE. Once this has started to move it can be turned by hand until it released. Place the brush cutter onto the shaft followed by the dished washer, cupped face towards the cutter and fix in place with the nut, turning it anticlockwise to tighted. DO NOT overtighted as the direction the cutter turns will tighten the nut further.

How do I spool new line onto this unit? It has a dual feed. Craftsman Weedwacker 17"/25cc


look on the bottom of the spool and see if there is an arrow point stamped on the outside of the spool, then check if there is an arrow point stamped on the inside of the spool. If so line up the two arrow points and cut two pieces of line about 3ft long. Insert one line into the hole where line comes out and push it until it comes out a little hole on the bottom of the spool. Pull some out and there will be a very little hole (the size of the line) beside the bigger hole insert the end of the line into the smaller hole and then pull it tight. Do the same for the other side. Then twist the spool (like you did to align the arrow points) stop when you have enough line out to reach the line cutter.

I have a shakespeare sigma fishing reel that tangles up when I cast it, any solutions


The line needs to installed on the reel as it is on the new spool when purchased. Also check spool drag. If it is a spinning reel it is important to install the string correctly and use a quality brand of string.

Ryobi rlt30ces trimmer


Hi there, takes a bit of working out without a manual, but try this....take bottom half of trimmer line spool off, get piece of spool line approx 60 cm, long and thread through centre holes, ( bit fiddly but ) pull line through until you have equal length on both sides, dont try and wind it up onto the spool, just put ends of line through outside cover holes, then lock spool in place in other half. now simply wind the knob at the end and the line should retract into the spool., sounds complicated but really isnt, best regards and good luck, Philbee

Ryobi Trimmer


To install string in the Ryobi you do not have to disassemble anything: Line up the two arrows on the inner and outer reel, remove any excess string, cut two pieces of string about 10 feet, feed line in the side holes, secure line in hole where it comes out the bottom (it only takes about 1/4in. to do so), pull strings tight, then turn the inner reel counter clockwise to wind it. If it sticks a little just pull line a little.
To remove the inner spool in order to remove line that has broken inside, to clean the mechanism, or to perform other maintenance, grasp the outer reel and unscrew the bump knob counter-clockwise. Mine is often very tight and requires pliers to get enough leverage. While you are in there, clean the inner reel and the inside of the outer reel to improve feed performance. The shaft rarely needs cleaning. Do not lubricate. After re-installing the reel, add string (0.080") as described above.
