Installing Dewalt Trimmer Line

Dewalt trimmer line can be easily installed by following these simple steps. You will need a Dewalt trimmer, a spool of Dewalt trimmer line, and a set of pliers. First, remove the old trimmer line from the spool. Next, thread the new trimmer line through the eyelets on the spool. Finally, use the pliers to tighten the line.

Step 1: Prepare the Trimmer

Remove the trimmer head from the Dewalt trimmer by loosening the knob at the top of the shaft. Pull the head off of the shaft. Unscrew the knob that holds the guard in place and remove the guard. Pull any old line out of the trimmer head.

Step 2: Cut the Trimmer Line

With a pair of heavy duty scissors or a utility knife, cut the trimmer line to the length you need. Make sure to measure twice and cut once! You don’t want to end up with too much or too little trimmer line.

Once you have the trimmer line cut to size, it’s time to install it on your trimmer.

Step 3: Install the Trimmer Line

Now that you have the bump feed headed in the right direction, it’s time to install the trimmer line. Begin by unscrewing the trimmer head counterclockwise. Some heads will have a knob that needs to be turned, while others will need a flathead screwdriver to loosen the head. With the head removed, take out any old trimmer line that may be leftover from previous use. Once the head is empty, insert your new trimmer line.

For smaller trimmer heads, you will likely only need one strand of trimmer line. Larger heads may require two or more strands, depending on their size. If you are using multiple strands, be sure to crisscross them before placing them in the head so that they are evenly distributed. As you insert the new trimmer line, pay attention to the way it is seated in the head. Most bump feed heads have notches or teeth that must be lined up with the trimmer line in order for it to feed properly. If your trimmer line is not installed correctly, it will not advance when you release the bump feed button.

Step 4: Test the Trimmer Line

Now that you’ve installed the trimmer line, it’s time to test it out. Start by attaching the trimmer line to the spool. Then, pull on the trimmer line to make sure it’s installed correctly. If the trimmer line comes loose, go back and check your work. Make sure the trimmer line is wound in the correct direction and that all of the notches are lined up correctly.

Once you’re sure the trimmer line is installed correctly, put the spool back on the trimmer and turn on the power. Slowly feed out some of the trimmer line as you walk around your property, making sure to keep an even tension on the line. If you notice any areas where the trimmer line is getting tangled or frayed, stop and adjust accordingly.

After you’ve finished trimming your lawn, turn off the power and disconnect the trimmer line from the spool. Dispose of any damaged or frayed trimmer line and put fresh line on the spool for next time.
