How do i remove the entire string spool head from my 14" Electric Grass Trimmer, Toro Model 51480A.


the nut or retainer that holds the head on or is part of the head is a left hand thread
so to undo it the action is as if you are doing up a normal nut
turn it clockwise to undo

My string will not go into the hole and I removed the 4 screws. I can not get it apart. How do I remove this head part to see why the string will not push into the hole?


Hi, Try cutting the string with a knifing straight clean. Then try again.
It won't go if it is frayed or chewed up. Also make sure you have the correct size of string. Some trimmers only use certain sizes of string to fit the head unit. Good luck.

Change head on trimmer


you buy spool of line and thread your self, you maybe able to buy the spool already has string on the spool, most are basic, the spool should have the direction you need to string it.unplug the trimmer, turn up side down, it have nut on it, unscrew it counter clock wise, than pull spool off restring the line for the weed eater, the string must be wound counter clock wise from the direction the weed eater or trimmer spins.

Hi I have an ECHO SRM 225 trimmer. I received no manual when I bought it. I do not know how to spool a new string


Usually string trimmers come with line already in it. If there is no line in it take the head apart. how you do this is as you push down on the bump as you hold the bottom part of head and twist the head should come apart..to sting the trimmer some are different some you have to cut the string and wrap two strings two different ways some you use one long piece and you wrap it.... you will noticed on the head there will be little indicators that tell you which way to wrap the string.. if you have any questions please let me know..

I was given a used 31cc trimmer but can't get the spool off to replace it. how do i do this?


A typical trimmer has a small bump knob, an inner spool with the plastic string wound on it and the housing for that which is the string head.To remove the small bump knob, hold string head firmly and turn the bump knob counterclockwise. To remove the head entirely, first remove the bump knob. Next, remove the inner spool with string. What should be left is the spring with the end of the gear shaft showing. Some heads are locked on and some just slip over the end of the shaft. Check the gear drive just above the string head for any holes in the collar. An object can be placed in one of the holes to lock the drive and twist the head off.Ryobi's use retaining clips on the shaft which have to be removed.

Homelite strin trimmer head wont rotate


The only way to access the bottom of the metal shaft is to break it. This is fused on at the factory. It sounds like your flexshaft has twisted in two. Remove the flex shaft from the engine end and see if it is in one whole piece or is damaged in someway. If it rotates at the top but doesn't rotate at the string head this is probably the problem. However, Homelite no longer offers just the flex shaft for purchase. You would probably have to purchase the shaft and the tube as a unit.
But if you are saying the spool and string is not turning at the bottom it could be that the cup which holds the string has worn and can not longer be turned by the shaft. Replace the cup that holds the string.
Another possibility is that the shaft have moved forward, away from the engine and just need to be jammed back in, and retightened (the handle grip and the boom clamp).

Require Manual for Ryobi PTL 2543 25cc line trimmer


Or sometimes you unscrew a retaining bolt set into a plastic "lug", the spool drops out, refill t with line, replace it putting line through holes in the spool casing, refit the "lug" and tighten it again. I think I have the manual for this though and if so maybe I can send you a link to images on MSN Homepage to help you..
