How To Put Line In A Weed Wacker


A weed wacker is a common gardening tool used to trim grass and weeds. It has a small diameter nylon line that rotates at a high speed and is used to cut through tall grass. However, the line may become worn out due to usage and needs to be replaced. Replacing the line in a weed wacker is a simple task that requires basic tools and techniques.

Before replacing the line, it is important to ensure that the weed wacker is unplugged and the battery is removed. This is to prevent any injury that might occur due to the rotation of the cutting head.

The first step in replacing the line in a weed wacker is to locate the spool. The spool is usually located at the bottom of the weed wacker and can be accessed by unscrewing the cap. Once the cap is unscrewed, the spool can be pulled out for replacement.

The next step is to remove the old line from the spool. This can be done by using a pair of pliers to pull out the old line. Make sure to remove all of the old line from the spool before replacing it with the new one.

The next step is to measure and cut the new line. The length of the new line should match the length of the old line. It is important to ensure that the line is cut evenly to prevent any kinks or tangles. Once the line is cut, it can be fed through the hole in the spool.

The next step is to thread the line through the eyelets. The eyelets are located on the cutting head and the line should be threaded through the eyelets in a clockwise direction. Make sure to thread the line firmly through the eyelets to prevent any slippage or tangles.

The last step is to wind the line around the spool. Make sure to wind the line in a clockwise direction and make sure that it is evenly spaced. Once the line is wound, the spool can be placed back into the weed wacker and the cap can be screwed back on.

Replacing the line in a weed wacker is a simple task that requires basic tools and techniques. Before replacing the line, it is important to ensure that the weed wacker is unplugged and the battery is removed. The old line needs to be removed from the spool and the new line needs to be measured and cut. The line should then be threaded through the eyelets and wound around the spool. Once the line is in place, the spool can be placed back into the weed wacker and the cap can be screwed back on.
