We fill the line in the trimmer.

I want to devote today’s article to the sore topic of summer residents and gardeners of the entire post-Soviet space "How to refill a fishing line into a trimmer." Not many trimmer manufacturers answer this question in their operating instructions. Therefore, it is difficult for ordinary gardeners to figure out how to do this correctly.

I want to start with a brief description of the technical characteristics of the trimmers.

So, trimmers are electric and gasoline. The cutting element of the trimmers can be a fishing line and a knife. The fishing line is ordinary, four. pentahedral and intertwined (in the form of a pigtail). Knives come in 2, 3 and four blade blades. Knives are also plastic and metal.

The feed system of the fishing line from the trimmer is manual, semi-automatic and automatic.

Development engineers who create new models of trimmers clearly calculate the diameter (thickness) of the fishing line and the number of knife blades according to the power of the trimmers. Otherwise, the engine is overloaded, which as a result leads to its breakdown. And this is an additional and significant cost.

Today on the market are trimmers:

With one nozzle. only fishing line.
With two nozzles. fishing line and three-four-blade knife.
With one nozzle. only a three-four-blade knife.

Our Kulibins long ago learned to improve any mechanisms. So, for example, some gardeners make successful, in their opinion, replacing the fishing line with a metal cable, or fishing line. But at the same time they do not think about the safety of their and their loved ones, because, as a cable with the power of a working trimmer, it can easily break out and not only injure the mower and others, but leave it crippled for life. Using fishing line can and gives a better effect, I have never personally tried it than fishing line for trimmer, but this work has a number of disadvantages: when it comes into contact with solid objects, it loosens or can simply be pulled out of the reel without limit.

So what is called closer to the topic. I give an example of how to fill a fishing line into a trimmer (BOSCH Art 30 trimmer). Everything is very simple. We started.

After you have chosen the fishing line for refueling, you need to cut off the necessary amount of fishing line, because all the fishing line in the skein is not wound into a reel.

Cut off and start winding.

Remove the coil and the protective cover from the coil.

They took off. We fix one end of the fishing line into the gap and carefully and evenly wind the fishing line.

The amount of fishing line should be such that the protective cover of the reel closes and the line on the reel unwinds itself a little.

The second end of the fishing line is planted in the hole on the protective cover.

Next, take the coil and the protective cover of the coil. We sink the end of the fishing line from the reel into the metal hole on the protective cover of the reel. Tighten the fishing line a little.

We put it all on the trimmer. Turn the coil clockwise until it clicks.

Secured. Now connect the trimmer to the network. We put the trimmer in the starting position for the job. Turn on the trimmer. The excess length of the fishing line will be cut off on the cutting blade.

That’s all starting work.

A little tip. Make sure that the fishing line does not come into contact with solid objects when cutting. With this contact, the fishing line will be cut. And since, in this trimmer, the fishing line is not fed automatically, then you have to stop the work each time, remove the reel and re-release the fishing line.

In my trimmer, in addition to the standard line for mowing the lawn, there is still provided a thick fishing line for mowing coarse weeds. It has the shape of a pigtail, i.e. Three fishing lines are tightly intertwined. Such a fishing line has its own reel.

Thick fishing line

It is stored at the top of the trimmer body.

Spare coil storage space

Installing such a fishing line into the reel is very simple. according to the internal circuit inside the reel. We insert the center of the fishing line with a metal mount at the top of the reel, and draw the ends of the fishing line along the grooves and bring it out.

Reinforced Fishing Line

Such a coil is attached to the trimmer as well as a reel with ordinary fishing line.
