Trimmers are a great way to maintain your lawn and greenspace, but they need their trimmer line replaced periodically. This blog post will teach you how to replace trimmer line in three simple steps:
First, remove the old string from the spool by winding it around your hand with one finger sticking out.
Second, unwind a new piece of string from the spool and thread it through the eyelet on top of the head assembly (make sure that there is enough length left over to work with).
Lastly, tie an overhand knot at both ends of the string and pull tight.
Decide the trimmer Line
How do you decide which trimmer line to replace your old one with?
We would like to provide an answer for that question. Trimmer Lines come in different sizes, lengths and colors. It is recommended not to use a line smaller than .095” or larger than 1/2” because it may either dull the blade or cause the string to break too soon. If you notice any unusual vibrations, noise from the engine, rough idle or just don’t feel right about how it performs then change out your trimmer line as soon as possible.
Dismantle The Head Of The String Trimmer
A lot of people think that when they buy a new trimmer, they’ve got to take it to the shop and have it assembled. This isn’t always true! Most string trimmers come with most of the parts pre-assembled already.
Put In The trimmer Line
We are going to talk about trimmer line. You should know that there is a lot of different types of trimmer line on the market, and some may be better for your needs than others. For example, if you’re looking for something with a little more durability, then we recommend that you grab yourself some .155 string trimmer line & .050-inch diameter synthetic line as it will last much longer than other lines like nylon or cotton string.
Winding The Trimmer Line
A common problem with trimmers is that the line winds around and gets caught in a tangled mess. This can make it difficult to trim down to size or even start the machine when you need to get back to work. The solution for this dilemma is a simple fix.
Trimmers are the workhorse of any lawn, and they have to be maintained regularly. One of the most important maintenance jobs is changing trimmer line, which can get dull or break over time.
It’s not hard to change the trimmer line, but it does take a little know-how. The first step is to clear away any debris that might be in front of or around the spool head on your trimmer. You’ll find this near where you insert new lines into the head assembly. Once it’s clear, remove any remaining old line from inside the spool with a pair of needle nose pliers by pulling at one end until all that remains is an empty spool with no old string attached.
