Question about Troy Garden

Open Question

I have a Troy bilt tb6040 xp that I cannot get the line out of trimmer head. I followed manual instructions to rewind line and pry line with a flat head. At the point the line might break if I pry much more. I can't see line inside the head. Is there a way to disassemble the trimmer head on this model or am I doing something wrong?

SOURCE: put string on tb425cs troy bilt trimmer

there are two ways to install the string..the cool way is without pulling the inner reel off the trimmer..just leave it in place..cut (2) approx.two arms length (thats spreading your arms out like airplane wings) of .095 string..now, align the arrow of the inner reel (it turns counter clock-wise..the arrow points outward) with the arrow on the outer spool (pointing inward)..holding the spool and reel together so the inner reel doesnt move, push one of the cut strings through the eyehole in the side of the outer spool, and it should come up to the right, through a slot next to a small round hole the diameter of the string..if it doesnt, it just missed the exit (as i call it)..pull out and try again..let about an inch come thru..now take that end of the string and push the line into the little round hole until it stops, which should be about a little more than 1/8 of an inch..hold it in while pulling the excess line outside the spool to keep it in place..now do the same with the other string for the other side..once you have both lines in place, turn the inner reel counter clock-wise to draw in both lines through the eyeholes of the outer spool..you may or may not get all of the line to wind in..not a problem..you will still have enough to do what you need to do..just cut off the rest..one problem you may or may not have that i do most of the tyme is that it gets hard to turn the inner reel..one solution is to bump the top of the 'bump knob' with your fist, then pull both strings at the same tyme, then continue to turn..this method is quicker and easier than the second way of having the inner reel out and trying to wind both lines at the same tyme and trying to place the reel back in the spool..hope this works for you...

SOURCE: Troy Bilt Trimmer 75SS stalls at full throttle. new gas

Hello. Let me assist you. Since your trimmer runs but stalls at ful throttle it is telling you that there is a fuel problem. Not enough gas is getting through the carbeurator to satisfy the engines needs on full throttle. Most likely the carbeurator is gummed up. A common problem. Let's see if we can un gum it by getting a can or carbeurtor cleaner. Go to any auto parts store and talk to the clerk about your need.

SOURCE: line stuck inside head of troy-bilt trimmer

Take an awl or small diameter screw driver, same size or a bit smaller dia. than the line dia., and push it through the hole from the outside of the line head. This should push the piece of old line through the hole.
Recommendation: Leave at least one inch of line on the inside of the head, so you can grab it easily when you have to replace the line. I'll carry a pair of long nose pliers on me when I use my trimmer, so I can easily grab hold of the inside piece to pull it through.

SOURCE: How to replace air filter on Troy-bilt TB20CS?

May be air filter but sounds more like your muffler is stopped up. First take the muffler off and see if it runs better without it. If so, burn the carbon out of the muffler and clean the muffler port on the engine. If not, then remove the four screw at the very end and disassemble. The ait filter is in that area. Diagram is located at

SOURCE: Cannot disassemble Troy-bilt trimmer head

There is a round, rotary black part between the metal piece to which the cutting head attaches and the outer plastic seat of the cutting head. There are two square slots, each about a quarter inch wide, on opposites sides of the black piece. Slide an Allen wrench or something similar firmly into the slot. Holding the Allen wrench in a stable position, turn the outer plastic ring of the cutting head (it has scalloped edges that can be gripped firmly) counter clockwise to unscrew the cutting head from the bolt on which it is mounted. Be careful with the tool (e.g. Allen wrench) used to hold the black piece steady, as it is plastic and could be damaged by the edge of the tool.

Need a manual for a troybullt xp tb6040. I do not know how to put new line in. Lost manual in a move from CO to WA.


Manuals for most Troybilt tools are available here: http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/Public.do?BrandCode=10001 . You will need the model number and serial number for your trimmer to access the file. (Usually these are on a plaque on the unit that will not be damaged during use.)

I hope this helps.

How do i replace the line in TB575EC trimmer?


Your manual will have diagrams and instructions in detail for restringing. You can use the following link to get it.
Both the model number and the serial number for Troy Bilt Trimmers are 11 characters in length. In your case, 41ADT41C966 is the model number, not TB575EC. You will have to find and provide the 11 character serial number. Input both of these on the following page and a manual is yours.

Too Much String from my Troy Bilt


The majority of the time excessive string feed is caused by one or a combination of one or more of the following:

String wound backwards. Seems simple enough, but happens to the best of us.
Missing or improper spring.
Lubrication ANYWHERE on the shaft or inside the bump head assembly. This item should be clean and dry..but never lubricated.

If you know the model number on your particular trimmer, that would assist in troubleshooting.

I hope this helps.

How do i install more string? Lost manual


Hi,
I have the same trimmer and I fixed the problem for good by getting a shakespear line trimmer head to replace the original faulty design,it also has 4 line rather than 2 so it cuts better. It costs about $15.00
