What is the best way to cut weeds and grass using my string trimmer?

  • Keep your string trimmer tilted toward the area being cut
  • Pass the unit from left to right (if using a curved shaft string trimmer) and from right to left (if using a straight shaft string trimmer). By following these directional cutting paths, you will avoid having debris and grass clippings from being directed back at yourself.
  • Use the top of the line to do the cutting. Do not force the string head into uncut grass; this could cause the trimmer to bog down.
  • Avoid trees, shrubs wire and picket fences.

How do I advance the line on my REEL-EASY™ String Head?

Line advance is controlled by tapping the string trimmer head on grass while running engine at full throttle

  • Run the engine at full throttle
  • Tap the knob on ground to advance line. The line advances each time the knob is tapped. Do not hold the knob on the ground

NOTE: The line trimming cut-off blade on the grass deflector will cut the line to the correct length

NOTE: If the line is worn too short, you may not be able to advance the string by tapping it on the ground. If so, stop the engine and manually advance the line.

How do I manually advance the line on my REEL-EASY™ String Head?

  • Stop the engine and disconnect the spark plug wire to ensure you will not be harmed

  • Cut one piece of trimmer line at approx. 20ft. in length. Insert the line in the eyelet on the string trimmer housing. Push until the end of the line comes out the opposite side of the string head. Pull the line from the other side until equal amounts of line are on both sides of the spool.
  • Rotate the spool clockwise to wind the line on the spool until approx. 6 in. of line is showing on each side.
  • Push the spool retainer down while pulling on line(s) to manually advance line and to check for proper assembly of the on the string head.
