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

1 Answer

Black and decker grasshog

I bought a grasshog on June 1, it worked for a few minutes but the self-feeding line didn't feed.  A few minutes later it locked up.  I drove 45 miles one way to return it for the same product.  The string fed but after less than an hour total use,it is now locked up. My registration probably hasn't made it through the mail yet.  Any suggestions?

    Since I've had so much trouble with the product, the company has decided to upgrade me to a heavier product at no charge.  At customer service I was told it was an internal problem they are having with that product.  However, the service department told me they were not aware of a problem.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Grasshog


When I had this problem I replaced that ratchet toggle part that the string drum sits over. Do you use replacement refills or do you refill them yourself. If you wind the string in the wrong direction it all affect the auto feed.

Unfortunately, the battery pack as a unit has been discontinued, but the battery itself (part #243213-00) can be purchased online. Amazon sells it for $35.99. You can find it here:

My Balck&Decker Grasshog won't automatically feed line.


Just replace the LEVER, Item #29, Part #598435-00, for about $3.00 (B&D, Dewalt). Just pull old level straight out (pliers) and push replacement in. Level end expands to hold it in place. No other parts. Forget cleaning and replacement the spool, graphite or oiling... just replace the lever.

Black and decker grass hog electric weed eater won't feed string


I bought the electric grasshog trimmer. Worst investment I ever made on Garden supplies. The line is completely gong within ten feet of trimming. I've used it four times and gone through twenty spools. In the trash now.

Auto feed spool doesn't work


You may need to purchase a new spool housing, which may not be too hard to do, if you have one of the name brand trimmers. This replaces the whole mechanism that holds the line, the retaining ring, etc.
