This should help. It was written for someone who wanted pictures as steps, but old low tech here couldn't pull it off. This link has served many well, however, and should be all of the information (and then some) that you'll need.
Best regards, and feel free to rate this solution, --W/D--

How do you remove the spool on an echo srm-2100 trimmer


Most units like yours has a tap head feed spool. To get to the line spool, you need to push the spool inward and rotate it to release it. The line spool is spring loaded, hence the need to push it in and rotate it to get it to release. You return the spool to the trimmer head housing after loading new line on it the same way, in reverse. Hope this info helps.

Replace trimmer line


The steps for replacing line in a single line trimmer head are virtually the same for many trimmer head types, like double line trimmer heads.
1. Remove the Trimmer Head Spool
Removing the spool is the first step in replacing trimmer line in any conventional trimmer head, but trimmer head spools can disassemble in different ways.
The trimmer head pictured above and below disassembles by simply unscrewing the knob around its arbor bolt. Other trimmer heads can use press tab and other twisting styles for disassembly.
2. Insert Trimmer Line and Wind the Line
Single line trimmer heads have just one channel in their spools for winding line. The channel will have a hole in it somewhere that keeps the line in place as it is wound around the spool. Insert one end of the trimmer line in the hole.
Depending on the trimmer head, it might be helpful to bend a small portion of the cutting line at an angle before inserting it in the starter hole. Also, cutting the line at an angle can help this first step on some trimmer heads.
Of course, it is also important to make sure that the replacement line matches the diameter specification of the trimmer head before beginning. Once the line is started correctly in the channel hole, you're ready to wind. Most trimmer heads will indicated the correct winding direction right on the spool somewhere.
It's also important to wind the line carefully, keeping it in neat rows as much as possible. The line will have a much higher chance to feed incorrectly during trimmer use if it suffers from sloppy winding.
3. Snap the Line into its Retaining Notch
A conventional trimmer head will have a retainer on its spool. Snap the end of the trimmer line into the retainer after it is wound around the spool. The retainer will hold the line in place as the spool is replaced in the trimmer head assembly.
4. Replace the Trimmer Head Spool
With the cutting line held in place, the spool is ready to be replaced in the trimmer head assembly.
First feed the extra trimmer line through the trimmer head eyelet. Make sure to release the line from the retainer before completely securing the spool into position.
Replace any knobs, bolts, or other trimmer head pieces removed during disassembly.
Your single line trimmer line is now reloaded, and your trimmer should be ready to get back to work.
Although there are many steps to reloading line the conventional way, a little practice and familiarity with your trimmer will speed the process up a great deal. Once you're up to speed, reloading trimmer line this way can take less than five minutes.

Thanks.

I have a Echo Gas trimmer SRM-210 Rapid feeder dual line. I need to know how to remove the entire drum for the string spool? NOT how to re-string but how to replace entire head/spool, as if I was going to...


In your manual under section 12: Line Head Installation. You will do the opposite of what it says here. The key is to LOCK the gear drive so the flex-drive shaft won't turn WHEN you are removing the trimmer head. They use a special tool (maybe you have it). But a small-shafted Phillips screwdriver or the like can be put in the drive hole to lock the gearing up as well. Look for the hole in the upper plate and align with the notch in the drive housing and grasping the entire string head unit, remove it. Here is your manual, see Section 12

I need to kno what the item number (so I can order) the line tensioner on my Poulan Pro Link line trimmer---PPB 335. It is a small plastic trimmer head cover. Do I have to order the whole trimmer head?


Your string head is part number 26 in the diagram. Home Depot's Garden department has a wide variety of parts including universal string heads and heads for Homelite, Ryobi, etc. and possibly one that will fit your machine. A lot of these trimmers have Poulan engine and trimmer head parts. See if you can get the complete assembly off the trimmer (if you haven't already) and take it with you to the HD and match it with a new one. The price of parts from an online supplier plus shipping will be almost as much as a complete replacement head. If you shop Ebay, there are literally hundreds and hundreds of weed trimmer parts on there and some good deals to boot.

How do i take apart the string head on my echo weedeater it has one of the new heads?


See how the head is installed on page 9 of the Rapidloader manual. Removal would be in reverse order of installation. You can probably use a Phillips screwdriver for the locking tool mentioned.

I need to put in new string -- don't know how to install. I need to know what to remove -- do I unscrew something, or do I just stick the string inside the casing?


This trimmer is an "AFS" (Automatic Feed System) trimmer meaning the trimmer uses centrifugal force and a lever that play out trimmer line without you ahving to bump it on the ground. Your trimmer uses .080" diamter line. You can get a replacement spool and lever at Lowe's fairly cheap. I would say get the spool that is already wound rather than trying to buy just the line and re-spooling...that will make this a LOT easier!

What you do to replace the line is place the trimmer on a stable flat surface (like a workbench), raise up the head of the trimmer and follow the steps below:

1. Remove the spool cover (this is the orange cap on the head)

2. Remove the spool, (observe and note the orientation of the spool!)

3. Using a pair of pliers, pull the orange feed lever straight out (observe and note the orientation of the lever!)...do not try to pry it off, you will damage the head!

4. Insert the new lever in the same orientation you noted when you removed the old one.

5. Insert the new spool and line in the same orientation as the old spool.

6. Replace the cap.

Black and Decker has an 800 number you can call if you get stuck, the number is 1-800-544-6986. Good Luck!

Do not know how to correctly string so string will come out as it is supposed to on my poulan pro weedeater, do not have directions


There are five ways to change trimmer line depending upon the style of trimmer head on your unit.

The first style has a locking tab on the side of the trimmer head that must be depressed while the lock ring is turned counter-clockwise. This will remove the cover and give access to the spool which can then be pulled out, rewound with the line (winding in the direction of the arrows on the spool), and re-installed.

The second style requires lining up the marks on the bottom of the spool tap/button assembly and firmly pulling straight out on the tap button. This pulls the spool assembly out so it can be re-wound and inserted back into the hub assembly.

The third style requires pushing in and down on the two locking tabs on the side of the trimmer head. This will remove the cover and give you access to the spool.

The fourth style of trimmer head is the Centrex. Remove the cap on the bottom of the head by unscrewing it. Remove the guide ring and remove the spool from the unit. Cut a 25ft length of line and insert one end into the center cavity of the empty spool. Feed the line into the spool, leaving 4-6 inches unwound from the center of the spool. Reinstall the spool, guide and cap, making sure the notch in the guide is facing away from the spool and the line is in the notch.

The fifth style is the fixed line cutting head. This style cutting head uses a pre-cut piece of cutting line. After removing the worn line from the cutting head, insert the precut piece into the positioning tunnel leaving an equal amount out each side of the tunnel. The ends of the line can then be inserted through the exit tunnels.

How to change blades


Use a large pair of pliers to hold the turning metal ring above the T35 trimmer head. I used a medium-sized pair of Channel Lock pliers. Then, turn the trimmer head counter-clockwise and it should unscrew from the mount. There's no need to open the trimmer head for this operation. Then, follow the parts diagram in the trimmer user manual to install the blade parts in the right order.
