Question about Troy-Bilt 4-Cycle Curve Shaft Gas String Trimmer #41ADT41C966

8 Answers

Can't get the head off troy-bilt weedeater to replace the line.

The black piece in the middle is spring-loaded, and the head rotates around it. i can't seem to figure out how to take any of it apart in order to replace the line. the head just spins around the spring-loaded black piece in one direction, it won't go the other way, and i need to replace the string.

I popped the black knob piece off with the back of a hammer, turns out it is a cover for the bolt underneath which was jammed so I used a wrench to loosen.

Pop the black knob piece off with the back of a hammer, it is a cover for the bolt underneath. Then hit the bolt with a hammer, when I did this the bolt loosened up and I could unscrew it. The bolt will get stuck in a locked position sometimes if you hit the bump head wrong on the ground.

Same thing happened to me, found out that the nut on the inside had stripped the plastic casing around it so it would just spin. Simple fix, forced it off breaking the black casing, but it was only 12 bucks to replace it.

I was trying to get that bolt off with everything I had. Then I read...turn in clockwise.. NOT counterclockwise. Turning it clockwise...it came right off.

This troybilt video says it needs to be turned counter clock wise.
Someone stated above that it needs to be turned Clockwise.
My bump knob will not turn what so ever. It seems to be stuck. I dont have a wrench large enough to close around it to even force it off. Im going to have to see what my neighbor has.

There are 'tabs' on the side of the head, two on top on opposite sides and two on bottom, opposite sides. You only need to push the top tabs and the head will open. The only thing you need to be sure you do correctly, is put the line back into the head so the holes line up with the holes in the head. After that, yes, rotate the head using the black round button on the bottom. Push it in, turn counter-clockwise. After a few turns, you'll see that the weedeater is actually drawing in the string.

Weedeater repair


Its possible that the drive shaft is broken or the end of the shaft is worn where it hooks into the gear head. The trimmer head has a hex fitting that meshes with the gear assembly in order for it to turn, its possible the hex is worn on the cutting head from usage, which would require replacing the outer spool assembly. Here is a link to a parts breakdown. http://www.partstree.com/parts/?lc=troy_bilt&mn=TB70SS+41ADT70C711&dn=769014720002

I have a craftsman 32cc weedeater model 316791810. I am not sure how to replace the trim line. Is the line supposed to automatically length itself when the line breaks?


An auto feed line system will do just that and if too much line is released there is usually a cutter inside the edge of the plastic guard covering the string head. I use a Troy Built head on a 32 craftsman and I unscrew the bump knob ...twist and pull out the spring loaded spool....cut a lenth of line 6-8 feet or so....thread the two raw ends thru the two holes in the inner spool....pull them out until they are even with each other....then grasp each one and hold them side by side and wind them onto the spool in a clockwise manner. This is how I do the string head with a split boom that fits the 32cc Sears Power head (an older Troy Bilt).

Need info on putting line on troy bilt 4-cycle string trimmer. Need to know how to get spool off trimmer to replace trimming string on the spool.


Hold orange spool containing string while twisting the black plastic cap in the center, counterclockwise. This retaining cap is loosely spring loaded, so watch for the spring falling out. Once this locking cap is removed, the spool pulls right off.

Line stuck inside head of troy-bilt trimmer


Take an awl or small diameter screw driver, same size or a bit smaller dia. than the line dia., and push it through the hole from the outside of the line head. This should push the piece of old line through the hole.
Recommendation: Leave at least one inch of line on the inside of the head, so you can grab it easily when you have to replace the line. I'll carry a pair of long nose pliers on me when I use my trimmer, so I can easily grab hold of the inside piece to pull it through.

Can not remove troy bilt weedeater head


Once all the bolts are removed, tap all the way around, (with a rubber mallet), where the head meets the bottom portion of the motor. It should come right off with a little coaxing.

Cannot disassemble Troy-bilt trimmer head


There is a round, rotary black part between the metal piece to which the cutting head attaches and the outer plastic seat of the cutting head. There are two square slots, each about a quarter inch wide, on opposites sides of the black piece. Slide an Allen wrench or something similar firmly into the slot. Holding the Allen wrench in a stable position, turn the outer plastic ring of the cutting head (it has scalloped edges that can be gripped firmly) counter clockwise to unscrew the cutting head from the bolt on which it is mounted. Be careful with the tool (e.g. Allen wrench) used to hold the black piece steady, as it is plastic and could be damaged by the edge of the tool.
