Toro trimmer Model3 51412

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 ?

SOURCE: How do you remove the line spool cap on a toro

There are 2 tabs, 1 on each side of the cap. You need to press these in at the same time to pull the cap off.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: want down to down load owners manual for Toro 7

If you use this link:

http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/Public.do?BrandCode=10001

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.

Thanks for using FixYa,

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.

How do you restring the line spool


Please see Figures 11,12,13 and 14 of your owners manual here for instructions and diagrams on that procedure: This is for a GH750. You probably have a GH1000, but I feel they are the same.

Putting on another spool, do I thread the line through the hole in the side?


I feel that the END of your trimmer line should exit THROUGH the hole in the side. That hole should have a small metal grommet to alleviate wear on the plastic head unit as the string flies.
So string your line onto the spool and when you are done, run the END of the line through the hole in the side.

How to replace trimmer line ?


1. Remove the cap on the trimmer head, it unscrews.

2. The spool comes off, and on the inside of the spool there is a small hole, this is where you will start your trimmer line. It it will hold it in place while you wrap it. There is also arrows on the spool showing the direction that you need to wrap your spool.

3. Insert the line in the hole and start to wrap the line in the directions of the arrows, try to keep the line in rows, or else the line may bind and you will have to do it all over again.

4. Feed the line through the retainer and reinstall the spool by lining up the retainer and the slot on the outside portion on the trimmer head, the screw back on the trimmer head and you will be ready to trim.

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.

It has come apart and I would like to refill the line on my toro heavy duty electric trimmer


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.
