Briefly about the line
Taking into account the models of the tool, the thickness of the line is 1.2-4 mm. There are such configurations:
- Round. The most durable;
- Curly. For soft grass;
- Twisted or notched. For thin grass;
- Professional, NOT suitable for all instrument models.
When changing the cutting thread, you need to choose the one that suits your trimmer type. Preference should be given to Specialized. Before tucking the line into the trimmer spool, it is best to soak it in water for half an hour. Then it will become more elastic and stronger.
How to quickly remove the coil from the tool
Before the thread is wound on a bobbin, it must be removed. over, the methods of removal depend on the characteristics of the instrument. On a trimmer with a motor in the very ground, the coil has two side buttons, when pressed, part of the body is separated along with the thread winding devices.
On tools with a bent barbell, the lamb on the fixture is moved counterclockwise; having disconnected it, they remove both the bobbins and the spring inside it. On a trimmer with a straight bar, fix it with a screwdriver, rotate it clockwise and remove it. Then the device is disassembled either with the help of latches or by moving its parts in different directions. Take out the spring from the coil.
How to fill the line in the trimmer so that working with it does not get tired
Many summer residents use a trimmer to combat weeds. A scythe with an electric or gasoline engine. It is convenient when working in hard-to-reach places for a lawn mower: in fences, flower beds, houses, in a garden on narrow aisles, and can cut small branches. The main element of this miracle technique is an ordinary fishing line, wound on a reel. The device is simple, but the cutting part wears out quickly and requires replacement. And the question of how to fill the line in the trimmer worries many owners of summer cottages.
Threading the line into the trimmer
Main question. How to properly wind the line on the trimmer spool, securely fix it there?
In the case of a device with one tendril, up to four meters of fishing line is unwound, one end is inserted into the hole inside it, fixing the fishing line, and moved in the direction indicated by the arrow. The end of the thread is fixed in a groove inside the bobbin so that it does not unwind when it is assembled. If the groove is commented, then this free end is fixed with a finger. Then the coil is assembled.
How to refuel the trimmer coil if it has two tendrils? In this case, check how many grooves there are. One or two. In the first case, both tendrils are directed into a common groove, if there are two, then each of them. Into yours. 2-4 meters of thread are passed through the hole in such a way that the free edges of the thread are of the same length, and twist the bobbin in the direction of the arrow-pointer. The ends of the thread are inserted into the grooves or held with a finger, the device is assembled and attached to the trimmers.
In a spool with two grooves, the same piece of thread is folded in the form of a loop, sent to the groove between them and the ends are wound simultaneously. Then repeat the previous assembly. With semi-automatic winding, the bobbins operate as follows. The fishing line is passed through the hole inside, its ends are fixed in the holes on the body, collect it and press the button. The thread can be easily wound in the correct direction.
It is important to remember that the cutting surface must be protected from solid objects so that it does not wear out. Otherwise, it will be necessary to constantly stop and, having removed the bobbins, replace the used line. Let your work be NOT tedious and enjoyable!

Changing the line in the trimmer: 2 easy ways
Trimmer. A necessary and useful tool for a summer cottage and a private house. Many people own and actively use it, but not everyone knows how to replace the line in a trimmer, especially at first.
In this manual, we will walk through the entire replacement process step by step. Going forward, there are two ways to line the trimmer spool. There are fundamental differences. The difference is that in the first case, one line will be refueled, folded in half, and in the second there will be two such lines.
Method 2. Two segments
Two coiled line pieces
Method # 2 is not fundamentally different from method # 1. The only difference. Two coiled line lengths instead of one.
The end of each segment is folded
The end of each segment is folded.
Two special fixing sockets
There are two special fixing sockets on the coil (see picture above).
We start reeling the line
They cling to it with a hook formed earlier on the fishing line, and begin to wind the fishing line.
Winding is carried out in a special order
The winding must be carried out in the following order: first the lower line, i.e. The one that is closer to the fixing holes at the bottom of the coil, and only then the top one, i.e. The one that will overlap the bottom section.
The bottom line is reeling
The tip is made into the holes in the trimmer spool body. They are pulled to clicks, which means that the line has come out of the clips.
The tip is threaded into the holes in the trimmer spool body
The coil is fastened into the body. The line in the spool has been replaced.

How to wind the line correctly on the trimmer spool. Step by step guide
How to wind line on a trimmer spool: winding methods and
Any garden owner knows how quickly weeds can fill an area. Get a victory over them without undue effort will help the trimmer. This is an incredibly useful device. An indispensable assistant in trimming and mowing grass.
It is no secret that an ordinary lawn mower cannot be used everywhere. In contrast, the trimmer can handle even very difficult areas. This is especially true of those tools in which NOT a knife, but a fishing line acts as a cutting element.
Trimmer head with two tendrils
Double flute head
After removing the spool from the spool body, we determine the number of strands for winding the line (1 or 2). In principle, there is no difference between bobbins with one and two grooves, but if carelessly threading into the paired groove, there will be operational problems. Due to the likelihood of interlacing the adjacent line of the tool, a situation may arise when, after wear of the working antennae, it is impossible to remove new ones.
Regardless of the number of streams, a fishing line with a length of 1.5 to 3 meters is taken for refueling. Winding must be done in the opposite direction of rotation of the head, since winding in the direction of travel will lead to the fact that the line will not be removed from the reel. After the fishing line is tucked into the trimmer coil, the free ends (15-30 cm) are threaded into special holes. Next, we assemble the head in the reverse order of disassembly and check the operability. Do NOT worry if the ends of the two antennae are very different in size, because when you start the trimmer, the knife installed on the protection will cut off excess.
Coil with one working tendril
The simplest option and uncomplicated sequence of actions:
- The dimensions of the spool and the length of the original factory winding determine the recommended length of the line for winding. 2.5 m.
- One end of the line is inserted into the fixing technological hole located inside the spool.
- The line is wound on the drum in the reverse rotation of the spool in the direction of the trimmer. As a rule, on the inside of the bobbin, an arrow indicates in which direction the winding is carried out.
- A small section of the line is left free to lead it out. It is fixed in a specialized groove on the inner side of the bobbin, designed to hold the winding when assembling the bobbin into working condition.
- The left end of the line is passed through the hole in the outer part of the reel.
- The bobbin halves are assembled and put on the trimmer bar.
