Replace Your Trimmer Line In Only 4 Steps

Replace Your Trimmer Line In Only 4 Steps

Like most homeowners, you probably take great pride in keeping your yard looking neat and tidy. And if you’re like most people, you probably don’t have the time or energy to do all the gardening and yard work yourself. That’s where a good string trimmer comes in handy. String trimmers are ideal for getting rid of grass and weeds in tight spaces where a lawnmower can’t reach. 


The Dewalt String Trimmer is a new string trimmer that promises to be even better than its predecessors. If you’ve purchased one or are planning to do it, we’ve put together this guide to help you replace the trimmer line. Let’s take it one step at a time.


Adding A New Trimmer Doesn’t Have To Be A Hassle

In 2018, DEWALT introduced an innovative QuickLoad Spool Heads to make adding a new trimmer line a hassle-free task! This may be found on the following models: DCST920, DCST970, and DCST991.


If you’re not sure what kind of reel to purchase, check the spool. The QuickLoad has a flat bottom, as you can see, whereas the traditional bump has a standard knob. 


Here are the steps you should follow to successfully replace the trimmer line on your Dewalt String Trimmer:

  • Step 1: Cut a maximum 25-foot (8 m) length of the trimmer line. This will ensure that you have enough lines to work with, and it will also help prevent overloading the trimmer.
  • Step 2: Spool housing eyelets should be aligned with the arrow on the spool head. This will ensure that your spool is correctly positioned for use.
  • Step 3: Thread one end of the trimmer line through an eyelet on one side of the spool housing. Pull the line through until there are equal string lengths on each side of the spool housing.
  • Step 4: Firmly hold the spool cap in place using one hand. Rotate the spool head clockwise with your other hand to wind the line on the spool. Continue winding until 5 inches (127 mm) of string remain on each side of the spool housing.
