Grasshog Electric Trimmer

Hello,
I replaced my trimmer wire spool, and am having some difficulty preparing the wire so that it will feed correctly. I see that there are couple of slotted areas where I could wedge the trimmer wire to make it stay in one place. Do I need to leave enough wire that would be long enough to cut, and then wedge it into those slots on the spool before putting the cover back on? IF that is the case, I am unsure how it will automatically feed the next time it needs more length. Just trying to figure this out. Any advise would be great. Thanks.

How to replace the string in grasshog xp electric trimmer


Ran into the same problem recently and discovered that one solution was to use a standard adjustable wrench and grasp the center, leveraging off the spool cover. If you look closely at the spool it is tapered so the very top of the hole in it is actually slightly smaller that the spool cover point it slides over letting it seal pretty tight over time.

I properly replaced the line spool but it won't feed automatically.


After you replaced your string in the trimmer and fed it through the hole in the plastic casing in which the spool fits into, did you pull the string until you hear a click? The click locks the string in, then you can bump and feed as usual. Otherwise it won't feed normally.

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.

RLT-5030AH LINE TRIMMER HOW TO PUT LINE ON SPOOL?


You need to prepare two lines of the same length. Wind the bottom one first. place the end of the line in the slot provided. Wind the second spool and place the line in the opposite slot. feed the lines through the two holes provided, be careful to allow the lines freedom. Insert the spool checking to see that the lines do not get pinched. You are now ready to GO!

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.
