How do i remove the entire string spool head from my 14" Electric Grass Trimmer, Toro Model 51480A.


the nut or retainer that holds the head on or is part of the head is a left hand thread
so to undo it the action is as if you are doing up a normal nut
turn it clockwise to undo

How do I replace the line in an 11 inch electric toro trimmer I can't turn the part that would come off to put new line in.


All I can do is refer you to the manufacturer's instructions. See page 5 after downloading your user manual. If you can not turn the cap off, then the cap is possibly cross threaded onto the shaft end and/or the threaded end if the driveshaft is stripped. See if the user instructions are of help to you.

I can't get the spool off of my Toro 12 inch trimmer model 51325. I have tried all the suggestions on the web site and it won't come off, however it came off my itself earlier when it ran out of string...


You are doing well. The Toro site states that this is a model from 1985. User manuals were much more concise back then and so I will have you view yours. Click on the link on the left that states:
Toroe Electric Trimmer/Service Manual (English). I have viewed it and spool removal instructions with pictures are there.

I dont know what string to use in my toro 8" battery trimmer


The thinner string works well in these machines and puts a lot less strain on them. I would suggest using a string of .065 range. The thicker (and more expensive) string used in the gas machines is too heavy for these lower powered electric units.

I have a 13" Toro model 51358 trimmer and it constanly has no string showing. I have to remove the cap and pull more out through the feed hole. Why?


the bumper on the bottom is worn out or the sprin inside it is broken. You should be able to tap it on the ground and string come out.

Refill line on spool of toro electric model 910


Onve you remove the cover the spool should pull straight out. Be careful, there's a spring under the spool that can fly out and get lost. You need that spring to re-assemble.

I have a Toro 12 inch Toro Electric trimmer and I can't get the spool off to change. Any solution?


I am having the same problem - the spool should just come off by turning it counter-clockwise but is completely stuck. This model does not have any tabs that need to be pushed in to get the spool off. Very frustrating!

String breaking


Check to ensure that the string is the correct size as specified in the owners manual. If ok check age of the string. If old it has a tendancy to be brittle. If new and supple try letting the trimmer get up to full speed and let the tip of the string do the cutting. Avoid taking on too much at once with this trimmer as the electric and battery trimmers are not as powerful as their gas counterparts. I hope this helps.
