1 Answer

Yes it can be repaired Jim. The belt has probably snapped. It happened on mine. Just undo all the screws and one hidden screw underneath the black lable near the number one, which is on the same side as all the other screws. Run your finger over the lable and you should feel it. Just pull the telescopic arm out and lift up the motor slightly so that you can place a new belt on. Simple as. Hope this helps

How do I remove spool holder from drive shaft?


Depends on make and model. Most electric strimmers have a removeable cover over the spool. This cover has 2 pressable tabs that releases the cover that then lifts off exposing the spool. Some spolls are clipped into this cover, others sit on the drive shaft from the motor. In both cass the spool should lift off / out. Make a note of the direction that the cutting line is wrapped around the spool so that you can re wrap it correctly with new line. Hope this helps

Restring a pgt300 performance power strimmer, it has a white casing which does not come off preventing me from adding more line


There should be 2 plastic tabs which you have to push in, this removes the wider outer base cover of the strimmer spool, giving you access to the bump cap and line spool.

Depending on the style you have, one looks to be a whole replaceable spool unit, one looks like a re-threadable spool.

How can i strimmer wire on a ryobi plt 3043ye


Hi alice louise
Try this method

1 Press the lock and rotate the spool counter-clockwise or some will remove the center knob.
2 Remove the locking ring if your weed eater has one.
3 Take off the automatic feed button.
4 Wipe away any dirt and debris.
5 Push down on the spool to release the locking tabs.
6 Remove the spool from the chamber.

Restringing the Weed Eater
1 Feed one end of the line into one of the holes of the spool, and secure the end that was inserted
2 Wrap the line in the direction of the arrows. Do this until until you fill the spool up with line.
3 Secure each of the lines into its own upper and lower grooves.
4 Re-install the spool into the chamber from which it was removed.
5 Pass the lines into the left and right holes and snap the spool into place.
6 Once the spool is in its sleeve and fed into its left and right eye holes, pull both ends simultaneously.
7 Reinstall the locking ring if necessary, reinstall the center knob.

Please take time to rate me

Why is a replacement spool and line not available for Qualcast GGT4502? Its only 7 months old (from Homebase) !!!


I think it's because Homebase no longer sell them. It's really annoying - I bought the last replacement spool that they had a couple of weeks ago for the strimmer I bought last summer.
After this is used, I'll have to buy a new strimmer. Bad judgement there, Homebase.

I just bought a BD Grass Hog and after 1 h of use,


If the noise was up by the handle it may have been the drive pulley breaking loose of the shaft on the motor causing the motor to spin and stop the flex shaft of the trimmer. Another possibility would be the small belt that aids the flex shaft. If those don't fix the problem check the lock nut that bolts the flex shaft to the spool housing. If the shaft broke free from the housing the motor would still run and the shaft would turn, but the spool housing would not spin if it does it could be stopped very easily. Definately check the warranty.

How do i change the line on my bosch garden strimmer, as it has broken


As it was impossible for me to get cap off spool I used a screw driver to prize off lid. If i ever need a new garden strimmer I will never ever buy this model again. It was so frustrating I felt like throwing it over the fence and buying a black and decker one.

Threading line on black & decker GL301 strimmer


Do you mean that the string keeps feeding as you try to operate the trimmer?

If so, you are winding the string on the spool the wrong way. Put the string on the spool in a clockwise direction. This should do it.
