Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V

Open Question

Head falls off

My grass hog head falls off, or is unattached to the main center rod and thus has no power for cutting. It spends loosely, then falls off. How do I get this to re-attach?

    The head containing the string will not stay on the trimmer. It will whack weeds for maybe 5 seconds and then the head becomes detached from the trimmer. HELP!

After reading all of the reviews on Sears.com, it seems these batteries require charging and discharging 3-5 times before they hold a full charge.

All of the reviews mentioned this; they said it lasted 5-10 mins the first few times, but then they suddenly got 30-50 mins per charge after the 3rd to 5th charging.

SOURCE: My Grass Hog trimmer was

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.

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!

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.

My grasshog weed trimmer only spins when it is upside down.


It sounds like the rod that runs from the motor to the head, is either loose or it has broken, so when you turn it upside down that causes it to engage itself and turn. You will have to take this apart and make sure that the holding clamps are in place

;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.

I was trimming and the head stopped turning, motor still going. Is there a repair center around Charlotte,NC???


May have grass or line bound up between moving and non moving parts. If motor is free wheeling, then the plastic driven gear is likely damaged. The part is not consumer available. No one that I have read about has been able to find it.

B&D grasshog XP motor squeeled and spin rate slowed. repairable?


Hello,

I just saw your post. Check the area between the housing and the head, along the shaft. Fibrous debris (in my area, this loosely translates into "lilly leaves") gets wound around the shaft, and will slow the universe down to a crawl. The only way to get it loose is to cut it loose, or unwind it.
Best regards, --W/D--
