    Did you make sure that the lines were fed through the hole in the spool?

SOURCE: Jammed line spool on Ryobi gas trimmer

On my Ryobi trimmer, all I have to do is unscrew the knob (the device that you "bump" to advance the line) at the bottom of the spool and the spool can be lifted out. I had to use a strap wrench the first time since it was on very tight. You don't have to line up any arrows to remove the reel.

SOURCE: RLT-5030AH LINE TRIMMER HOW TO PUT LINE ON SPOOL?

You need to prepare two lines of the same length. Wind the bottom one first. place the end of the line in the slot provided. Wind the second spool and place the line in the opposite slot. feed the lines through the two holes provided, be careful to allow the lines freedom. Insert the spool checking to see that the lines do not get pinched. You are now ready to GO!

I have 11" Toro Trimmer and cannot turn spool counterclockwise to replace line. I am a woman and do not know what to do. Used strap wrench large open end wrench and cannot budge this spool.trimmer is less...


With most trimmers, you may have to push the spool casing inward and then turn. It should unlock fairly easy. You may also want to spray the divider crease on the spool casing with some kind of lubricant like WD-40 or Tri-Flow to facilitate the process of detaching the spool casing from the body. Good luck. I hope this helps.

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.

Cub catet weed wacker needs new string and I don't know how to put the string on....


If it is a duel line trimmer then:

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.

If it is a single line trimmer, just wind a single piece of string clockwise onto spool.

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!

I have an 11" Toro trimmer and was having trouble deciphering the symbols on the base. The key is having a method to gain some opposing force to unscrew the cap that holds the spool. I have an oil filter wrench called the round wrench. It is a steel bar with an attached length of rubber belt that can tighten around cylindrical objects. I used that to oppose the unlock direction on the trimmer and "voila", no tabs to push no trick with the button, you just need o_1089.jpg_1088.jpg_1087.jpgpposing force.
