Replace line


Two possibilities:

1. Buy a new spool. Make sure you bring your make and model/size to the store to get the correct replacement spool, or

2. Buy new line and manually wind it into the existing spool. Smaller lawn trimmers and edgers use smaller diameter line than larger lawn trimmers and edgers.

Good luck.

Just bought a TE475. can't figure out how to replace the line compared to the traditional one-line configuration I am used to


Here is the info from the manual, the replacement line is put in near the center of the spool on the top of it, you simply feed it in. I have included a link to the manual so you can see the pictures. Look at page 10 for these instructions.
http://www.weedeater.com/ddoc/WEEO/WEEO2009_USen/WEEO2009_USen_TE475-952711797_545186833.pdf
LINE REPLACEMENT Pre--wound spools offer the most convenient method for replacing line and ensuring optimum performance. S Replacement spools are color--coded to ensure use of the correct spool with your unit. Be sure to use the same color spool as the existing spool. NOTE: Always clear dirt and debris from cutting head components when performing any type of maintenance. S Hold spool and unscrew cap by turning in the direction shown on top of the cap. S Remove line guide ring and spool. NOTE:When removing and/or installing spool, ensure dust cup remains installed over shaft. Use a pre--wound spool or refill spool with line. If using a pre--wound spool, remove tape strip from line and spool. REFILLING THE SPOOL WITH LINE WARNING: Use only 0.080" (2 mm) diameter round line. Other sizes and shapes of line will not advance properly and will result in improper cutting head function or can cause serious injury. Do not use other materials such as wire, string, rope, etc. Wire can break off during cutting and become a dangerous missile that can cause serious injury. 1. Cut a length of 25 feet of 0.080" (2 mm) diameter round WEED EATER brand line. Feed line in direction shown on spool. Spool 2. Insert one end of line into center cavity of empty spool. Ensure line will feed into spool in the direction shown on the spool (counterclockwise). 3. Continue feeding line into spool, leaving 4 -- 6 inches (10 -- 15 cm) unwound from center of spoo

The string on my grasshog xp gh1000 4, feeds out within 5 mins. What am I doing wrong when I add new string?


Hello, W/D here.

Read all the way through this, with the spool in your hand, before you re-wind the spools. It will make much more sense!

Pull the spool off of the trimmer.
Look on the bottom of the spool. The decimal numbers next to the notches on the edge is your line size (e g. .080). If there are 4 notches, there will be different decimal numbers, indicating that your trimmer can take different line sizes.
Also on the bottom will be arrows, indicating the direction that you will need to wind the line.
Looking at the spool, you'll notice that it is actually 2 spools, and the divider between them has a slot in it. (This will be important in a minute). The section of the spool closest to the bump head is the outer spool, and the spool closest to the machine, with the flat side, is the inner spool.
Insert the proper sized line into the hole in the inner spool core about 1/8", and wind in the direction indicated by the arrows, until the line is just about even with the divider between the two spools, then place the line in the notch that is 180 degrees (on the other side of the spool) from the slot in the divider. When the line is in the notch securely, leave about a 6" tail beyond that, and snip the line.
Wind the outer spool in the same manner, but this time, the line will go into the slot in the divider, then into the notch, and also get a 6" tail.
Feed the tails into the grommets in the trimmer head, square them up, notches to grommets, and snap the spool in.
Push the spool in like you were bumping it to the ground (this frees up the advance for the spool).
Grab the two tails, and give a tug. The line will pull out of the notches and advance about 1".
It's a good idea to clean out the hole where tha spool fits onto the trimmer from time to time, and also to put some graphite dust in the hole every 8-10 times you re-wind the spools, just to keep the mechanism working freely.

Best regards, --W/D--

Having trouble replacing trimmer line


Hello. I just answered a similar question not twenty minutes ago. Hope this helps.

Please read all the way through this before beginning to actually rewind the spools.
1. Pull the spool off of the head. Clear the dust and debris out.
2. Note that it is actually two spools that are separated by a disc, and that the disc has a slot in it. The outer spool is the spool closest to the bump head, and the inner spool is the one that fits closest to the machine and has notches in it. If you turn the spool so that the inner spool base is up, you will see that there are decimal numbers next to the notches. The decimal numbers are your line size(s). I say sizes here as some machines will accept more than one line size. You will also notice arrows on the inner spool base, telling you which direction to wind the line on to the spool(s).
3. Wind the inner spool first: Put the end of the line into the hole that is in the core of the inner spool. insert ~1/8". Wind in the direction of the arrows until you get roughly even with the divider between the inner and outer spools. You want to end up with your line 180 degrees from the slot in the divider, and snap the line into the notch that is in the inner spool base. You want about 6" of line beyond the notch. Cut the line, leaving a 6" tail.
4. Wind the outer spool: Wind the outer spool like you did the inner spool, filling the spool as before, and ending at the slot in the divider. Feed the line through the slot and snap it into the notch. Cut a 6" tail as before.
5. Reinsert the spool: Get the spool close to the machine. Insert the tails into the grommets in the head, and snap the head into place.
6. Preparing the line for use: Push the spool in as if you were bumping it against the ground to advance the line. Grab the tails and pull. This will release the line from the notches, and should release about 1" of line in doing so.
You should be good to go.
Every so often, it's a good idea to put some graphite dust into the spool just before putting the spool back onto the machine. This helps when you are advancing the line. I do this every 8 to 10 times I rewind the spools.
If this fails to correct your problem with the spool, it would be best to purchase a replacement spool.
Best regards, --W/D--

Hi I use all the nylon on the spool when cutting edges with in a 5 meter length ( 3 spools to do 15m approximately) Grass length 30 to 50mm


Hello. W/D here.

It sounds like the line is wound on the spools backwards, or the spool itself may be damaged. Here's what to do to fix it if it is improperly wound:
Please read all the way through this before beginning to actually rewind the spools.
1. Pull the spool off of the head. Clear the dust and debris out.
2. Note that it is actually two spools that are separated by a disc, and that the disc has a slot in it.

How do I spool new line onto this unit? It has a dual feed. Craftsman Weedwacker 17"/25cc


look on the bottom of the spool and see if there is an arrow point stamped on the outside of the spool, then check if there is an arrow point stamped on the inside of the spool. If so line up the two arrow points and cut two pieces of line about 3ft long. Insert one line into the hole where line comes out and push it until it comes out a little hole on the bottom of the spool. Pull some out and there will be a very little hole (the size of the line) beside the bigger hole insert the end of the line into the smaller hole and then pull it tight. Do the same for the other side. Then twist the spool (like you did to align the arrow points) stop when you have enough line out to reach the line cutter.

How do I refill the spool with new cord. the whole towns out of the refills. I bought new line, but cannot figure out how to wind the cord onto the black thingy. Its a dual line feed.


The grasshog xp takes .080 heavy duty line, do not use any other grade other then .080!
First remove the orange cap by depresssing the two buttons. Next unscrew the screw and remove the tumbler. You'll want about 50' of line for each of the two spindle slots. Start on the spindle closest to you by inserting about an inch of line into the hole in the base and statr winding it snugly in the direction as show on the spool, take your time and do it nice and neat and the line will last you longer then if you rush and do it sloppy. At the end leave about 6/8 inches and temporarily fasten the end on one of the nitched holders. Start the inside spool from the opposite end that you started the other and repeat the same. Once they are both spooled and temporarily fastened at opposite ends from each other reattach the spool onto the edger, fasten the screw in place and un fasten each end at a time inserting the line through the wholes each on oppoing sides. Then reinstall the safety cap and you are done! For taking 15/20 minutes and 1/4 the cost of buying a new spool and saving throwing the old spool away it is well worth it =)

18v cordless string trimmer will not stop feeding line


Some of the trimmers recommend a certain size line, if you have one of these that let line out as needed, the speed at which the trimmer cuts will let out line as needed. If you have too small of line the drag for the friction let-out you will spoll all the line out. Make sure the line is the right size, They come in alot of sizes, anywhere from .060" to .125" line thickness so make sure you have the right size line!
