How To Change The Line On A Lawn Mower

How to replace line in any trimmers

How to replace line in any trimmers
So, first unscrew the nozzle. This should be done by rotating the drum to the right. Here we have in our hands a drum with the remains of an old fishing line. We open it. Most often, the lid closes with latches, which can be opened with a screwdriver, threading it into the holes and pressing lightly. Or you need to squeeze the latch and turn the cover towards the arrow. In this case, the lid itself must be held, since K. Reels with automatic line feed have a spring that, when straightened, can throw out all the inner parts of the drum. Gently pulling out the reel, removing scraps of line from it.

Now you need to take 5 meters of new line and fold it in half (to find the middle). In the middle part of the reel there is a notch (in some designs. a hole), for which we need to hook our line. There is also an arrow on the spool showing the direction of winding. An important detail. if the reel has two compartments, then one half of the line should be wound in one direction, and the other in the other. When finishing winding, you need to leave 15-20 cm of line free. There are also two notches on the top ring of the coil, through which you need to pass these free ends. We coped with the winding itself.

The last step in the line replacement process is to assemble the drum. First you need to install the spring and washers in their place. Then, holding the reel with one hand, with the other you need to thread the ends of the line into the corresponding holes on the sides of the nozzle. Then place the reel in its place, tightening the line and being careful NOT to dislodge the spring. When all the internal elements of the nozzle take their places, you can close the drum with a lid. You just need to make some effort to ensure that the latches fall into place. Voila! The mowing head is ready for use!
When choosing a fishing line for your motor scythe (gasoline or electric), you should dwell on some points, in which we will tell you in detail.

Line diameter.
The engine power determines which maximum line diameter can be used for a given braid. For example, the manufacturer of an electric trimmer with a power of up to 1 kW recommends using a line of ø2 mm, and at values ​​of about 500 W. only ø1.5 mm. Also, the manufacturer of any heavy duty curved bar trimmer recommends using a ø2mm line.
A gasoline engine is more durable than an electric engine, so you can install thicker line there, which means stronger line, which allows you to cut more grass and work longer.
On grass cutters with a straight bar, you can select the line according to the following simple algorithm: a diameter in a millimeter corresponds to an engine volume in tens of cubic centimeters. For example, for a Husqvarna 128R lawn mower with an engine capacity of about 25 cm3, use a line of ø2.5 ± 0.2 mm. For more powerful brushcutters with volumes of more than 40 cm3, only the geometric dimensions of the outlet openings of the mowing head. no more than 4 mm.
So, a thin fishing line (about 1.5 mm) cuts well cultivated lawn grass, and a thick one (for example, 3.0.3.5 mm) successfully destroys Burian and even young shrubs.

Line shape.
The simplest and cheapest to manufacture is a round line. However, the requirements of ergonomics and environmental protection limit its use. due to its physical properties, it creates an unacceptably high level of noise (which is comparable to the noise of the engine itself). This is the classic Husqvarna or Oregon RoundLine or Chipmaster.
To reduce the noise produced by the line, it is given a special shape. they make it spiral like Oregon DuoLine Plus (noise reduction by 15 dB) or with special transverse grooves like Husqvarna Whisper (-8 dB).
Following the school laws of physics, “working” part of the line in the mowing process is only the end surface, not the side surface. However, to increase “sharpness” fishing line, i.e. To increase efficiency, the cross section is changed from round to faceted: star-shaped, square or square with teeth. Oregon StarLine, Nylsaw or Flexiblade.
For example, according to experts, Oregon Nylsaw line, due to its square profile, by 27% “sharper” its counterpart with a circular cross-section, which clearly affects the increase in mowing speed.

Lawn Mower / Trimmer Line Types

To date, a huge variety of cord varieties have been created. The line differs not only in diameter and length, but also in the material of manufacture, surface structure and cross-section.

But the main criteria for choosing a fishing line are:

  • Length
  • Diameter

Almost always, the main parameters of the line are marked on the spool drum itself. At the same time, many manufacturers indicate the parameters of the fishing line NOT with an exact value, but with a range. For example, let’s take a drum with the following parameters: length. 2.5-3.5 (m), thickness. 1.5-3 (mm). The range makes the lawn mower more versatile. The wider the range of values, the wider range of work the mower will be able to perform.

When choosing a trimmer line, it is especially important to consider the diameter value. As the diameter of the line grows, its strength increases. A good 3-4 (mm) thick line can be used to cut already formed and matured weeds. The fishing line is thinner, by 1.5-2.5 (mm), you can only entrust the mowing of young growth.

The diameter of the line is directly related to the power of the lawn mower. It is permissible to use thick line only on powerful and efficient units. Usually 3-4 (mm) line is used on lawn mowers with engine power from 1000-1200 (W).

In terms of line length, the longer the line, the less often you need to reload the drum. How else can you classify lawn mower line types?

How to replace the line with lawn mowers. Types of fishing line, rules for choosing a line

The main consumable material of any lawn mower or trimmer is the fishing line, with the help of which the green growth is mowed. On average, a running meter of fishing line is enough for Mowing a plot of 0.75-1 ares. Of course, a lot depends on the power of the lawn mowers, as well as on the diameter and section of the line itself.

Unlike metal discs and knives, the fishing line easily copes with cutting weeds. If we talk about mowing bush or dead wood, the line almost completely loses its effectiveness.

Over time, the line will be shortened to its minimum threshold length. Most often, the short cord will jump out of the reel on its own under the influence of centrifugal force. When the drum has completely worn out the line, its resource needs to be replenished. This review will tell you how to replace the line with lawn mowers, and will also touch on the topic of choosing a line for a trimmer.

Despite the abundance of brands, lawn mowers have approximately the same coil (spool) device. The most widespread are lawn mowers with a drum for 2 Usyk. There are also 1-barb mowers, but they usually have a minimum power of no more than 500 (W). As a rule, the drum fits from 1.5 to 3-4 meters of fishing line. The allowed line length is usually indicated on the drum body. There you can also find the tolerance range for the optimum cord diameter. By the way, the choice of the diameter and section of the fishing line will be described at the end of the review.

Replacing the fishing line in the drum with 2 Tendrils

It should be noted right away that in traditional lawn mowers, the line is loaded into the drum completely manually. Additionally, there are lawn mowers with semi-automatic line threading. There are usually no questions about a semi-automatic reel, the operator just needs to insert the fishing line into the holes and wind its ends with a collar.

As it is correct, professional lawn mowers, that is, models for frequently performing a large amount of work, are equipped with the Simplest drum, which involves manual winding of the fishing line. Thanks to their simple design, such coils acquire the highest level of reliability and durability.

  • The first step is to stop the mower completely. If it is an electric model, be sure to remove the plug from the socket. If this is a battery trimmer, then you need to disconnect the battery, of course, if it is removable.
  • Next, you should disconnect the spindle, that is, the reel itself with the line drum. As a rule, the spindle is simply unscrewed, there are some additional latches or latches on it. Preliminarily, the position of the spindle must be fixed. For this purpose, a hole is provided in the drum, which must be aligned with the hole in the casing. You need to insert a metal rod (nail, drill, etc.) into the aligned holes.

Please note that the coil has a non-standard right-hand thread. It unscrews from left to right. This is done on purpose so that the spindle does NOT unscrew spontaneously during the mowing process.

  • Detaching the drum cover. It rests on a pair of latches. As a rule, to open the lid, you just need to squeeze the latches. If you cannot squeeze the latches with your fingers, you can resort to using an impact screwdriver.
  • Finished fishing line. You need to cut the line and fold it in half. We bend the center of the fishing line so that a comfortable hook is obtained from the rounded loop.
  • We put the loop into a special groove on the central partition.
  • We wind the fishing line so that the central partition divides the fishing line folded in half into 2 separate channels. Usually you need to wind the line against the direction of rotation of the spindle. When winding the line against the direction of rotation, it becomes possible to semi-automatic / automatic line feed.

Semi-automatic feeding is when, to lengthen the line, during the mowing process, you just need to press the push button to the ground. Automatic feeding assumes independent stretching of the fishing line while reducing the center of gravity of the cutting antennae.

Many drums are marked with a pointer. As is clear, the line must be wound in the direction in which the arrow points. Marking may not be present in those drums where line needs to be fed manually, on completely stopped and disconnected lawn mowers.

  • We put the terminal antennae into the holes of the spindle, through which the cord is fed.
  • Putting the drum in reverse order.

A is attached below, the author of which clearly shows how to replace the fishing line with lawn mowers with a semi-automatic reel for 2 Mustache.

An alternative way to load the line into a reel

The drums of modern lawn mowers, for 2 Mustache, have a special eyelet in each of the channels. Thanks to the eyelet, it becomes possible to wind the line for each channel separately. For some, this method of winding the fishing line is preferable.

  • We remove the spool. To do this, it is advisable to stop it with a screwdriver or something like that. The coil is unscrewed clockwise.
  • Remove the cover and taking out the drum. Typically, the cover is secured with a pair of latches. When the drum is disconnected, the spring will be accessible. DO NOT LOSE HER!
  • Finished two separate lines of equal length.
  • The tip of the line is crocheted.
  • Threading the hook into the eyelet.
  • We reel the fishing line on one of the channels. Usually the line is wound against the rotation of the spool.
  • We fix the tip of the fishing line so that it does not unwind. For this purpose, there are corresponding connectors around the very edge of the drum.

  • We repeat all the above operations with the second line. It needs to be wound in the same direction as the first cord.
  • Assembling the reel and putting it on the lawn mower.

As a rule, such drums have both a traditional hook on the central partition of the channels, and a separate lug in each channel. The user of lawn mowers with such a drum can choose the method of charging the line. Each method is good in its own way.

Attached below is a, the author of which clearly shows the above method of line threading. The demonstration of the alternative method begins from the 8th minute exactly, the first part is devoted to the traditional method of charging the cord.

Section and surface structure

A classic of the genre is the round line. A cord with a rounded profile has a very solid reliability and durability. But the rounded section is well suited only for mowing young growth, mainly with a thin stem.

If the operator is faced with the task of mowing well-strengthened weeds with a thick stem, and maybe even dead wood, then the rounded section of the cord in this case will be ineffective. A line with sharp edges is well suited for such tasks.

  • Square
  • Star
  • Etc.

Of course, these types of fishing line have their drawbacks. The main disadvantage of a faceted cord is its susceptibility to rapid wear. Sharp edges tend to break violently.
When choosing a fishing line, you need to consider the material. Ordinary cord options are made of plastic. expensive fishing line is made on the basis of more durable synthetics.

Single Barbed Trimmer Spool

Reel for single-barb lawn mowers

Many owners and experts note the ease of use and ease of refueling the bobbin with one mustache. Depending on the manufacturer, the length of the threaded line can vary from 2 to 5 meters. The end of the line is inserted into the head into a special technological groove or hole, and the winding is carried out in the direction opposite to the working rotation of the bobbin. Most reels have arrow marks on the outside of the body that indicate the direction of the trimmer reel movement.

After winding, you need to leave a free end of 15-30 cm to enhance the centrifugal force, which is decisive when removing the trimmer line in automatic and semi-automatic spools. Passing the left end through the working hole of the coil and assembling the head.

Trimmer head with two tendrils

Double flute head

After removing the spool from the spool body, we determine the number of strands for winding the fishing line (1 or 2). In principle, there is no difference between bobbins with one and two grooves, but with careless threading into the paired groove, there will be operational problems. Due to the likelihood of interlacing the adjacent line of the tool, a situation may arise when, after wear of the working antennae, it is impossible to remove new ones.

Regardless of the number of streams, a fishing line with a length of 1.5 to 3 meters is taken for refueling. Winding must be done in the opposite direction of rotation of the head, since winding in the direction of travel will lead to the fact that the line will not be removed from the reel. After the fishing line is tucked into the trimmer coil, the free ends (15-30 cm) are threaded into special holes. Next, we assemble the head in the reverse order of disassembly and check the operability. Do NOT worry if the ends of the two antennae are very different in size, because when you start the trimmer, the knife installed on the protection will cut off excess.

Preparing to wind the line

Before the winding process, it is necessary to remove the spool with line from the body. Depending on the manufacturer, power and type (electric or gasoline), there are three design types of trimmers:

    Compact Electric Trimmers.

Straight bar trimmer

This model provides the ability to install a knife. Removing the coil in such models is done by means of two keys recessed into the coil body. To mount the trimmer knife, it is necessary to align the hole of the reel and the rod, and then insert the device in the form of a steel pin (screwdriver, iron bar). After fixing the coil, the body can be easily unscrewed by hand clockwise.

How to wind line on a trimmer reel: key points

A gasoline or electric trimmer is an indispensable tool in the arsenal of a modern summer resident or owner of his own home.

Thanks to these garden devices, even a large garden plot can be mowed with ease. After purchasing this tool and performing several mows, many people think about how to properly wind the line on the trimmer reel. For an inexperienced user, the first operation to replace it will seem problematic and time-consuming, since the developers often do not fully reflect the instructions for replacing the fishing line in the operating manual.

Winding the line to the trimmer

Measured and accurate dismantling of the spool from the spit coil makes it possible to go directly to winding the line. The design features of the head, the number and location of the fixing holes dictate the sequence of actions when performing this operation, and also determine the methods used. Today there are several types of reels, depending on the number of line antennae and the methods of threading it:

  • Trimmer head with one working Mustache;
  • Bobbin with two tendril fishing lines;
  • Auto winding reel.

Trimmer head with automatic line threading

Types of trimmer heads

Some models on the market are fitted with a reel with an automatic winding mechanism. It is enough for the owner to properly thread and fix the ends in the head, and the winding operation will be performed by the tool itself when it is turned on. It is almost impossible to wind the line incorrectly into a trimmer with such a head, since the coil independently determines the position of the antennae. The advantages of the automatic trimmer head include the ease of threading the line, and the disadvantages are frequent breakdowns of the mechanism due to the complexity of the design and the high cost.

Repair and lubrication of the lawn mowers gearbox

The role of the reducer is to transmit the torque from the motor shaft to the cutting tool through 2 gears with different numbers of teeth. The torque is transmitted at an angle of 30 0 The number of revolutions of the lower cutting blade is 1.4 times less than the engine speed. Gears Must be clean and lubricated. To supply oil to the teeth, there is a hole under the screw on top.

First, the place where the plug closes the hole should be cleared of soil and grass. Unscrew the plug with the appropriate tool, it is included with the saw. We use a grease tube. Either a native lubricant from the manufacturer is selected, or well-known high-quality compounds such as Oleo-Mas, Litol.24, Azmol 158. We open the protective layer of the tube and Lay the instrument on its side. Slowly rotating the knife, squeeze the grease into the gear housing. The gears, turning, carry the composition with teeth over the entire surface. You can also pour grease with a special syringe.

Insufficient or too much lubrication can cause the gear unit to heat up. A knock and backlash is heard, signaling the destruction of the bearing or the ingress of dirt due to damage to the anthers. Bearing replacement must be done with a Puller and not using the warm-up method.

If the gearbox staggers and runs on the rods, it is necessary to replace the housing, or temporarily tighten the knot with a clamp to fix it on the pipe. If the knife stops rotating, it means that the gears are NOT engaging. the teeth are worn out or chipped. A pair will need to be replaced with a complete disassembly of the assembly.

When replacing a gearbox, it is necessary to select a new unit, guided by:

  • Pipe diameter;
  • Drive shaft diameter;
  • Cross-section of the drive shaft;
  • Method of fastening protection

Lawn mowers malfunctions and how to fix them

They follow this, the repair of lawn mowers is to troubleshoot;

  • The engine does NOT start;
  • The cutting mechanism does NOT pick up speed;
  • Engine stalls;
  • The reducer is heating;
  • An extraneous knock is heard, strong vibration of the bar.

Before eliminating the malfunction, you need to diagnose, determine the non-working unit.

It is important to know the lubrication points of the tool. Constant care, cleaning the device after work will extend its life. Before work, it is necessary to tighten the fastening bolts, prepare fuel and fill the tank.

Chainsaw engine won’t start

If the mechanism does not start, immediately stalls, check sequentially:

  • Is there fuel in the tank;
  • Serviceability of the spark plug;
  • Air and fuel filter cleanliness;
  • Cleanliness of breather and exhaust port.

It is necessary to make sure that the candle is working, giving a spark when it comes into contact with the body. In this case, it is necessary to dry the candle channel, clean and dry the same part. You can change the candle, but the channel still needs to dry for 40 minutes. Check the serviceability of the high-voltage wire, there may not always be a contact. Malfunction in the ignition unit when repairing lawn mowers, do not fix it yourself.

If the air filter is removed and the engine does NOT stall, the reason is in it. it needs replacement or cleaning. Replacing the fuel filter is done with great care. Then check the cleanliness of the breather, remove the muffler mesh and clean the exhaust channel.

The next step will be to repair the carburetor, where you have to find the malfunction and fix it, taking into account the tiny size of the parts. If the simplest operations have not yielded results, in order not to disrupt the fine tuning of the system, it is better to entrust the repair to a specialist. Where to start diagnostics and how to properly repair lawn mowers with your own hands, check out:

Is it possible to repair lawn mowers yourself? Caring for the mowing unit

The saw headset dulls or wears out over time. Working with the tool becomes tense, the load increases, the swath quality deteriorates. Metal saw blades sharpen, plastic ones change.

If a line is used as a cutting tool, it gradually wears out, and new material is installed in the spool. The principle of operation of the cutter with a line is to gradually unwind the coil under the influence of centrifugal force. On contact with the grass, the fishing line is abraded; it is fed from the reel gradually. A special winding is needed so that two cutting elements come out at the same time and do NOT get confused with each other.

The illustration shows how to properly wind the line around the reel of the lawn mower. Before winding a new line, you must:

  • Having unscrewed the nozzle, carefully remove the cover, holding the spring with your hand;
  • Remove scraps of old fishing line from the reel;
  • Measure 5 meters of a new string and fold it in half;
  • In the reel, guides for 2 ends, hooks with the middle part along the groove and wind in the direction of the arrows for each half of the string;
  • Pass the remaining 20 cm through the special notches at the opposite ends of the coil;
  • Install the spring and washers, bring the ends of the line out, close the drum with a lid.
