More about Rethreading Weed Eaters
Weed Eaters are common both in the Landscape Industry and in the home environment and should be utilized within manufacturer’s recommendations. All weed eaters basically have the same design, but come with a variety of power sources. Not only that, but they also come in different power ranges, sizes and prices.
Weed eaters can be electric, battery powered, or powered with gas or a gas/oil mixture. The string is the most important thing to maintain on your weed eater.
Rethreading a weed eater is not too difficult. All you have to do is buy a new spool of the plastic line, and then carefully remove the old one. Then you pull out a bit of the new spool so it sticks out past the opening (about two inches will do) and snap the new spool in.
