Can't remove casing for B&D Cordelss Grasshog (NST2018 Type 2)

I need to replace some broken parts (spindle not spinning) in my Cordless grasshog and I can't dissasemble the outter shell. I have taken all of the screws out that I cannot get it off of the covering where the head meets the shaft. Does anyone know how to remove this?

    I also cannot remove the spool housing (part # 478728-00) that is cracked from the metal piece that holds the guard and guide on my GH-1000 14". I have also removed all the screws only to pull and expose the cable that turns inside the shaft. Is there a trick? I really do not want to take the whole unit apart piece by piece. Thanks.

    I have removed all of the screws from the caseing but at near the shaft the casing will not come apart. It stays as if it was glued or something is holding it. I tired to pray it like it says in this last instructions, but nothing comes loose. Which I had a figure or something to show how it is done or exactly where I am suppose to pry with the screw driver

These are the steps to open the clamshell/motor housing for the Black and Decker 18V Cordless Trimmer Model NST2018. The orange clamshell has two plastic clips that engage two recesses inside the black plastic ring. You use two screwdrivers to disengage the clips and seperate the black plastic ring from the orange clamshell. Follow these steps: Wrap tube assembly in a small towel and mount in a large bench vice securely. You will notice two small openings at the top of the black plastic ring at the top of the orange clamshell. The next steps require two people. Person one inserts a flat-bladed screwdriver into into each of the small openings at the top of the black plastic ring (two screwdrivers). Using the tube assembly for leverage, pry the black plastic ring from the orange clamshell with enough force to disengage the orange plastic clips from the black plastic ring. Person two pulls the orange clamshell/motor housing away from the black plastic ring/tube assembly along a straight line (same axis as the tube assembly). After you've separated the motor/clamshell housing from the black plastic ring, remove the six screws and open the clamshells.

  1. There is a hidden screw behind the label on the handle that describes how to unlock the head. The location is in the middle where there is a vertical line. I just pressed with a small screwdriver to break through the label and removed the screw that is probably there to tell black and decker that you have now voided your warranty! But you probably don't have a warranty if you are here!

My grasshog motor runs but the spool does not rotate. Please tell me if this can be fixed or not


It probably can be fixed. You may want to see what is wrong before you do anything else. Look to see if something has been wound around the spool. Check to see if the cable may be broken. If it is the cable you want to see if the fix is more expensive than a replacement. Good luck...Lee

If you have the model # NST2018 then the only thing wrong is that a .30 cent retainer clip at the upper end of the spindle shaft is missing. A local hardware store should have one that will work. There should be a thin washer that will go between the sleeve bearing and the retainer clip that will be inside the housing as well.
