Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V
I have a Black & Decker Weed Trimmer model 8209 but the string is all gone. I bought some bulk string that was same diameter as what was on it but I haven't found instructions on winding it on the "spool".
There is a picture of a loaded reel on Amazon. com at this hyperlink:
Can anybody tell me exactly how it should be wound on the "reel", or point me to instructions on the Internet? I don't want to pay big bucks for a couple of dollars worth of string on a reel just like my empty one. Thanks!
By the way, I was FORCED into choosing the wrong product below because the "can't find you product" doesn't list my item and the drop-down list of Black & Decker equipment doesn't list my model number!
Look at this video and if you have any questions I'll be more than happy to try and answer them. I was trying to answer the problem of loading up the string onto the disc (don't know if it will post) but gave some incorrect hint: Once the disc is separated from the outer ring and you start to string up the line (.065) start by inserting the end of the line into position 1 and add 6 to position 7 on the top of the disc. Now go down and add 6 and go to position 13 on the bottom and come up adding 6 and alternating sides. (www.youtube.com/watch?v=u31j4Weu6eU)
Good luck with this and hope you can make it work. This trimmers are great and will not quit!
