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.

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.

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.

I have bleck and decker grass hog auto feed and it does not work


There is a smalll white part below the spool called a "lever". This is likely in need of replacement. Call Black and Decker at 800-544-6986 with your Model No, and Date Code (stamped on the trimmer itself near where the extension cord plugs in). If it is still under warranty they will send you the replacement part - if not, I loooked it up and it's less than $3 for the part itself.

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.
