The photo below shows several examples of different trimmer reels.
Bobbins trimmers, whose motor is located at the ground, have a different attachment to the axis of rotation, they have on the spool two buttons located at the edges, which must be pressed, otherwise, the thread change is no different from the other cassettes.
To remove the spool of fishing line to unscrew the screw, located in the center, but note that the thread is left, so you have to turn it clockwise, it is made on purpose, so that during operation it is not opened under the influence of centrifugal force.
Next, using a screwdriver, disassemble the head and pull out the spool, which specifically winds the line. Measuring the desired length and folded in half, it is necessary tuck in The line in the coil, bringing ultimately, its ends opposite each other (for this purpose there are special slots for fixing).

What kinds of lines are available?
A commonly encountered type of fishing line that fits on virtually all types of reels is cord of circular cross section. It is an ordinary line, Suitable for mowing lush grass, but it will be much harder to cut down dead grass, and it is even more difficult to mow with it, much less control over bushes.
Usually, the cross section to mow young grass does not exceed 1.6 mm. The thicker the thread, the coarser the grass it can overcome.

There are lines with improved aerodynamics with appropriate indentations, scales and notches, a similar product makes less noise, but use it only on petrol-powered mowers, because the output of such a thread from the spool is difficult, using it in most cases with discs, which are inserted segments. The disadvantage of this product is its fragility.
The line flies out
A prerequisite that the cord after starting the unit unwinds, can also be a loosening of the spring inside the head.
In addition, there are cases when, when you turn on the unit mowing head breaks, and the spring installed in it, is missing.
Inexperienced users do not notice the absence of the spring and assemble this assembly without it. Because the cord does not hold, and under the influence of centrifugal force flies out.
If the line often breaks, it can be caused by the following circumstances:
- pebbles, small branches and other hard obstacles are caught in the grass;
- The user cuts the grass close to the fence, and if it is mesh, it tears “tendrils” even faster
- bad quality of cord (it is recommended to buy a high quality cord);
- outlet openings in mowing head are worn out, that’s why the line is rubbed on sharp edges of bushings and breaks (full replacement of the detail will be needed).
How to wind a fishing line on the mowing head of a grass trimmer or brushcutter
This carefully shows how to wind the fishing line on the grass trimmer or brushcutter spool. Filling line mowing.
Some spools have the 2nd method of fixing the cord: you can charge 2 lengths of thread, instead of the 1st, folded in half. The method of changing the line is as follows.
- Before changing or loading new thread into the bobbin, determine how many meters of thread you will need using the method above.
- One end of the cord bend in the form of a hook.
- Find a hole on the day of the bobbin, created to fix the line, and stick the looped end of the thread into it.
- Wind the cord in the direction of the arrow up to the necessary level, not exceeding the diameter of the spool.
- Do the same for the second cell of the bobbin.
- Assembly of the head does not differ from the method that was discussed when we considered the threading of the bobbin folded in half a piece of fishing line.
For a Shtil brushcutter there is a very normal and sharp method of changing the filament without disassembling the mowing head, which you can see by following this.

The cords protruding from the openings in the fiber guard can be cut to the right length after the piece is installed in the trimmer. This can be done in 2 ways:
- turning on the grass trimmer (as it rotates, the line ends will be cut on the blade fixed to the blade guard for this purpose);
- cut off unwanted ends with scissors so that they do not touch the body of the housing.
the 2nd method is used if you had to put a cord with a huge cross-section, and the trimming knife can not shorten it.
If the filament is charged to the mowing head but the projecting filament ends are not long enough, they must be lengthened before starting the machine, this applies to a mowing head with manual adjustment.
But there are also cases when using an automatic mowing head where the projecting filament ends are not lengthened by the automatism due to insufficient length.
In this case, you need to turn off the unit (on an electronic device is required by all means to pull the plug out of the socket), manually press the button, located at the bottom of the details, and pull a piece of fishing line. After this procedure, the cord will again be able to move out due to the centrifugal force, if you set the highest spindle speed.
How to properly wind the line for grass trimmer on the spool
Lawn trimmers are indispensable helpers for large and small lawns. The convenience of their use is controversial, as it requires certain skills and physical preparation from the owner. the grass trimmer is hung on the shoulder with a special belt and for a few hours of work the hands can get pretty tired. But it can also be difficult to get the machine ready for use. For example, winding the line on a grass trimmer reel can be a real ordeal. Here’s how to avoid it.
It’s often easier to find a fishing line than a ready-made spool of cord. And the cost of fishing line will be cheaper than a ready to work bobbin. However, it is important to know a few basic rules for winding the line on the spool, which will help avoid problems during further use.
Open the spool and carefully inspect the bobbin. you should see an arrow that will indicate the direction in which you need to wind the line.
Pull both ends of the line through different holes until it comes to an end, then reel the line (both ends) in the same direction the arrow will point to.
Gently reel in the line ends while holding the line as it is reeled. Lower the bobbin into the spool and close.
A few secrets for winding a line for a grass trimmer on a spool
To keep the line from tearing while working, wrap less than the capacity of the reel itself. For example, if you have 15 meters of fishing line, you should wind 10 meters of fishing line (i.e. two 5 meter ends, respectively).
When using a line with a shaped cross section, remember that its diameter should be at least 0.3mm smaller than the “working” diameter of the grass trimmer. Such a discount is made so that the serrations of the shaped line rub less and the line does not tear as quickly.
Coil both lines (both ends) at the same time, avoiding overlaps. You have to try and learn how to hold the line tension correctly: if you overtighten it, it will jam, if you undertighten it, it will kink. Do not use gloves when winding shaped line, otherwise you will cut yourself.
Do not leave too long ends, because it is often the reason why the line gets wound up when cutting the grass.
When mowing near obstacles (trees, fences, bushes, fences, concrete) remember that the line will run much faster because the cord will catch on the obstacle. Get a bigger reel.

The importance of proper winding
In order to have a successful fishing trip, you need to prepare for it carefully. Otherwise the worst can happen weather is fine, the bait is excellent, and tackle constantly fail and prevent to take advantage of favorable conditions of fishing.
To prevent this from happening, you need to set up all the fishing accessories in advance. One of the most important steps in preparing for fishing is to wind the line correctly on the bobbin of the fishing reel. Failure to comply with the basic rules threatens a grief-fisherman with tangles and breaks in the line, and fishing instead of pleasure will be a test for the nervous system.
Casting distance depends on the quality of such work. Proper spooling allows the bait to be cast at a distance that most closely matches the technical specifications of the spool.
Proper rewinding also extends line life by reducing mechanical friction and reducing the risk of casting beards, which often require you to cut the line. Therefore, before you begin, it is necessary to consider a few tips from experienced fishermen on how the line is laid on the bobbin. This is a fairly simple procedure, which can cope even a beginner.
