  1. Hey, I enjoyed your video, as I'm always wrestling with this one, the reason I got on is to know what length to precut the plastic line. To stop it from tangling up on you. You can drop a nail or pipe through the center of the spool, and nail or fasten to something, and let it spin as you pull out the line, also I usually, when I get a new whacker, which I got a stiell like you, cause they are great products where someone has figured out usually how to make it easier, anyway , I premeasure the line I can fit on the spool and write that measurement somewhere that I will see it next time , either on the spool or the package the line came in or on the garage/barn wall! Hey thanks for helping me , and God Bless! Oh yeah, Go Get 'em Tiger!!

  2. Glad to see someone show that one should wind the string in the same direction on both the upper and lower levels of the spool. For some reason, I thought they should be wound in opposite directions. Just put my weedeater away for the day but I'll be messin' with it tomorrow. Good vid! 😉

  3. Seems as though winding each side separately is not time saving. Something I do is use fiberglass strapping tape across the string where it goes into the spool retainer holes . It seems as though the string always runs out when the job is almost finished and throws out that last foot or so of line which would have been enough to finish the job. By taping it into the holes, it is held in and gets used to the end.

  4. THANK YOU FOR THE HIGH QUALITY VIDEO! SUCH DETAIL & GREAT SOUND! Now I am confident that I have been doing this the right way and restringing the weed eater is the worst thing ever! I'm now off the purchase an Echo Speed Winder and I don't feel guilty about it. Again, great video!

  5. The stihl trimmers lock inside of the head so you don’t have to hold it while your trying to put the string through the eyes of the head know your equipment before you post a video and who rolls up on side at a time why not pull enough off the spool to do both sides then cut the middle before putting the bottom piece on

  9. If you undo the line from the package an arms length and cut it you can put both ends into the spindle (cartage) holes and wrap it around doing lines at the same time. Then put the both ends into the notch. Cut the line in the middle. Then put both onto the slot and retaining ring on top.

  10. I got alot faster way to do it….. i cut off one big long peice and then i center it and cut it and then i stick it in both holes and use my finger in between the 2 sides and run both sides up at the same time

  11. Keep your line in a bucket full of water out the sun, keeps the nylon from going brittle and it lasts waaay longer. That and a Speedfeed 450 head and life is way easier, though I find the stihl heads don't spool out accidentally if you knock them sideways like the speed feed. Aliexpress cheap heads are great for new caps and spools, the rest is poor quality (eyelets etc) but worth it compared to the cost of main dealer parts.

  12. I just got the auto cut C26-2 for my still. You don't have to remove. You push line through until you have equal length of trimmer line on each side. Then twist to rewind line. I hope it works.

  13. it has 4 holes for 4 lines but nobody seems to use them. am i the only one who uses 4 lines? i use 4 5 foot strands instead of 2 10 foot strands. id like some input about this. i cant find any info about it. havnt tryed the 90 but i use a 70 6 days a week and on fridays i use it all day. just put a new head on it cause i didnt close it all the way after reloading some line and sent the cap into orbit. great vid soo on point about cleaning. dirty heads cause problems.

  14. Project Farm did a comparison video and Husqvarna came out the overall winner for string trimmer line. I have the same on you have but I only bought that because it was on clearance at Farm and Fleet. Works fine but I’ll give Husqvarna a try too.

  15. A quicker way is to measure out two spread arm lengths of line , insert the ends into each hole and wind loading both slots at the same time.
    Unavoidably the line will cross in the slots so do not wind too tightly.
    Note that using the wrong thickness of line for a particular clearance job is the most common mistake.

  16. My husband is not a yard worker I bought a weed trimmer..it's not old fairly new for the life of him he can't thread it. Don't get me wrong he got upset and stop..and I told him oh my God try!! I need him to follow how you did it..or he will be pulling weeds by hand and he's has a really bad back
