SOURCE: Correct gas to oil ratio for Homelite Mighty String Trimmer Model

most trimmers are 50:1. or 40:1. i would use synthetic 2 cycle oil and use the 50:1 ratio. i know guys with trimmers that require 50:1, and they use synthetic at 80:1 with no problems for years. they say the engine runs cleaner. i am a part-time lawn care operator.

This is for a duel line trimmer. I hope this will help.

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position. Put cap on and GO CRAZY!

I need a new trimmer head for myhomelite trimmer model HTL800A


I see that this is an older model electric trimmer. The correct model number is HLT800A. Parts for electric models are difficult to find (online). Most service centers refuse to work on them and they say it is not cost effective. They basically just issue warranty replacements. Even Searsparts direct that has parts for most makes and models only lists gas models for Homelite.So, if you can get the old head off (or even if not); take it to the Home Depot garden center and there you will find a vast array of different string heads that may or may not fit this model. I know that most of them are for the gas machines. You may even find a new electric model on sale there that suits your fancy. I have been unable to find any spare parts listed for this model.
