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.

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 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.

My Toro 12" Trimmer (Weed eater) needs a new screw down cap to hold the spool in place. Home Depot no longer carries them. That's wheree I got the last two Weedeaters.Please give me instructions as to...


Your Toro electric trimmer parts are readily available through www.partstree.com . However, to avoid having to pay $10 in shipping for a $5 part, you should try to find your local Toro dealer. They probably have the part in stock. Go to www.toro.com and search on the dealer/distributor locator to find your closest dealer.
You will need to know the model number (5 digit) and serial number for your trimmer. These can be located on a small sticker on the trimmer.
Good luck!

How do you get the head off of the 12/15" electric toro


After the bolts have been removed from the head, tap all the way around the head with a rubber mallet,
(http://www1.mscdirect.com/CGI/NNSRIT?PMPXNO=4760615&PMT4NO=65151144), where it meets the bottom of the motor. It should come off with a little coaxing.
