Question about Toro Electric Trimmer
I was given a toro stringtrimmer model 51412 and can not figure out how to wrap new line onto the trimmer. It has two exit holes for the line and only shows one direction to wrap the line. How do I end up with the two ends of line to trim ?
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!

If you use this link:
Then type in your model and serial number, You can download your User's manual. Toro is pretty fussy about handing out manuals hence the model number AND serial number are required in their site.

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 opposing force.
