How to wind the line onto the Patriot trimmer reel?

properly, wind, line, trimmer, spool

Almost every beginner when using a trimmer is faced with the problem of changing the line. While it is very easy to change your line, you need to learn how to do it correctly. Changing the fishing line with proper skill will take no more than five minutes. you just need to constantly practice it. This article will look at changing line using Patriot trimmers as an example.

Instructions

In order to change the line, you need to remove the old one (if it was).

The reel is the part of the trimmer structure that is located inside the mower head, drum or bobbin. Heads may vary depending on the manufacturer. But this article only covers Patriot, although their mechanism is used by many other companies.

Now you need to understand how to properly remove the head from the trimmer and how to pull the drum out of it.

Instructions on how to unscrew the manual head on the trimmer are described below.

  • First of all, you need to clean the head from dirt and adhering grass, if it is dirty. To do this, lift the mower head up and, grasping the casing, remove the special protective cover on the drum.
  • The next step is to remove the spool from the drum. The reel can be easily removed even with one hand, because it is not fixed in any way inside the drum.
  • The drum itself is fixed in the trimmer with a bolt. This bolt must be unscrewed, after which you can easily pull out the drum. To do this carefully, you should support the drum with the spool, while unscrewing the screw counterclockwise.
  • Now you can pull the coil out. As mentioned above, it is not secured by anything, except for a hook with a metal shaft, so it does not need to be pulled out with force. Carefully, in a circular motion, pull the spool out of the drum.
  • Now it remains to remove the old fishing line and follow the following instructions.

Installation of the spool and drum in their original place is performed according to the reverse algorithm.

Before threading the line, make sure you have purchased the correct thread for the trimmer. In the event that the thread is not suitable, the consumption of fuel or energy increases, as well as the load on the engine of the lawn mowers.

In order to replace the thread itself directly, you need to prepare a piece of thread of the required size. Most often, this requires about 4 m of line. The specific figure will depend on the parameters of the thread, for example, its thickness, as well as on the parameters of the spool itself. If you cannot accurately determine the length, you can do the following: insert and wind the thread until the coil is fully charged (the line level will be compared with the protrusions on the sides of the coil). Make sure that the line sits evenly in the reel.

Do not forget that thick thread will be shorter than thin thread.

The instructions for threading the line into the spool are described below.

  • The prepared thread must be taken and folded in half. It should be ensured that one edge is longer than the other by 0.1-0.15 m.
  • Now you need to take the ends in different hands. The one that is smaller must be pulled up to the larger one so that it becomes 2 times shorter. When bending, maintain an offset of 0.15m.
  • Locate the slot inside the coil baffle. Carefully pass the loop you made earlier into this slot.
  • To continue working, it is necessary to determine the direction of winding of the thread in the bobbin. To do this, it is enough to inspect the coil. there should be an arrow on it.
  • If the arrowhead cannot be found, then it is quite possible that there is a written designation. An example is shown in the photo below. It is necessary to inspect the coil head. There is a direction indicator on it. However, this is the direction of travel of the coil. To get the direction of winding, you need to wind in the opposite direction.
  • Now you need to load the spool with line. It is worth noting that there are special guide grooves inside the coil. Follow these grooves when winding the thread, otherwise the trimmer may be damaged. At this stage, you need to charge the coil very carefully.
  • When the user winds up almost the entire thread, take the short end (do not forget about the 0.15m protrusion) and pull it into the hole located in the wall of the reel. Now you need to repeat this action in the same way with the other end (on the other side).
  • Place the reel itself in the head of the reel, before that threading the line through the holes inside the drum.
  • Now is the time to put the drum back in place. After that, you need to take the ends of the line with both hands and pull them to the sides. Then you need to put the lid back on (here you can safely make efforts until you hear a characteristic click).
  • Remained to do the “cosmetic work”. We need to see if the thread is too long. You can start the trimmer and check in practice if everything is comfortable. If the thread comes out a little long, you can cut it with scissors.

Frequent mistakes

Although winding the line is a very simple task, many beginners can wind the line incorrectly. Below are the most common mistakes.

  • Many people, when measuring a thread, think that 4 m is a lot. Because of this, people often measure less, and, accordingly, they do not have enough line. Do not be afraid to measure out a lot, because you can always cut off the excess.
  • In a hurry, some people do not follow the threading grooves inside the spool and wind the thread randomly. This will cause the line to come out of the reel and may even cripple.
  • For winding, use only the appropriate line. This mistake is the most common one. You need to monitor not only the thickness and volume of the line, but also its type. You should not use the first line that comes across for wrapping, which will not meet the goals. For example, you do not need to use a thread on young grass if you need to mow dead wood.
  • Do not turn on the device until it is fully wound and collected. Although this is obvious, some people do this in order to check if everything is done correctly.
  • In no case should you confuse the direction of refueling, as this will overload the engine, and it will soon come out of working condition.

It is quite common for beginners to make mistakes, so you need to follow the tips given in this article.

See below for how to replace the line on the Patriot trimmer.

How does a line head work on a lawn mower why you need to know how it works

Depending on the manufacturer, the heads differ structurally not only externally, but also internally. Most drums have a pressure spring inside (semi-automatic and automatic). Above is an instruction on how to disassemble the trimmer head without a spring, i.e. on the head of the manual type. The principle of dismantling a semi-automatic head with a spring inside is almost identical to the instructions described above.

The principle of operation of the semi-automatic trimmer coil is as follows:

  • Inside the head there is a coil, which is fitted on the slots, which prevent its free movement.
  • A spring acts on the coil, which presses it against the splines in the cover structure
  • A fishing line is wound on the tip, the length of which depends on the tool itself. Typically this length is between 1 and 4 meters.
  • During the performance of work, if it is necessary to increase the length of the line, the protruding part of the drum is pressed, whereby it disengages from the splines. In this case, the line is unwound from the drum, increasing in length
  • After releasing the required amount of fishing line, release the pressure and continue cutting the grass

The advantage of a tool with a line is that this consumable does not require sharpening, compared to metal discs. In addition, if a stone or a tree comes across on the way, the line simply breaks off, without negatively affecting the gearbox and engine of the tool, as is the case with metal cutting discs.

Knowing the design and device of the types of mowing or trimmer heads, it is necessary to go on to consider the process of threading the line into the trimmer spool. After all, it is this very moment that causes difficulties for most owners of special tools.

Technical properties of the cord and the choice of diameter according to the power of the trimmer

If you take a package of fishing line in your hands, then only two main parameters are indicated on it. these are the total length and section. There is no instruction on how to choose a trimmer line, so you have to ask a specialist. Finding a good specialist is not so easy, especially since every year not only new lines are produced, but also reels.

The first thing to decide is the diameter, thickness or section of the cord. All this is one parameter that characterizes the performance of work with trimmers, lawn mowers, lawn mowers and lawn mowers. What section should I buy for my trimmer? In order not to be mistaken, you should take a piece of the old cord with you and give it to the seller. Based on the segment provided by you, the seller will issue a similar section of the cord.

This option is certainly reliable, but it cannot be called correct. Why? After all, the choice of fishing line depends not only on the head used, but also on the power of the tool used. First, it is recommended to decide what diameter of line can be used on trimmers and lawn mowers, depending on their power parameters:

  • Electric trimmers with a power rating of up to 500 W. cords with a cross section of up to 1.6 mm are used. These tools are designed for cutting young grass in backyard areas.
  • Gasoline and electric units with power ratings from 500 to 1000 W. imply the use of cords with a thickness of 2 to 2.4 mm. Such machines with consumables are used for cutting thin and thick grass, as well as weeds. In trimmers with a power of up to 1 kW, you can install a fishing line with a diameter of 1-1.6 mm, but it will wear out quickly
  • Trimmers and lawn mowers with power ratings over 1 kW. allow the use of cord thickness from 2.4 to 3.3 mm. Such a fishing line can be used to cut off thick and dried stems, as well as dense thickets. If a consumable with a thickness of more than 3 mm does not cope with the task of cutting grass, then metal discs with blades, teeth and knives are used.

It is interesting! Manufacturers produce trimmer line with a diameter of more than 3.3 mm, only it is used extremely rarely, and only on powerful gasoline units.

Winding process

If your coil is designed to work with only one tendril, then it’s simple. You need to unwind 2-4 m of fishing line (depending on the size of the reel), find a fixing hole for the line on the inside of the reel, insert one end of the line there and start winding the line in the direction opposite to the direction of rotation of the reel on the trimmer. On the inside of the reel, they usually indicate with an arrow in which direction to wind the line. Having reeled the fishing line, we leave a small piece of it unwound in order to expose it outside. We fix this piece in a special groove located on the inner part of the reel and designed so that the line does not unwind at the time of collecting the reel. If there is no such groove, then you will have to hold the fishing line with your finger to prevent it from unwinding during the further collection of the coil. Next, we take the outer part of the coil and thread the outer piece of fishing line into the existing hole, assemble and put the coil back on the trimmer.

If the coil is designed to work with two antennae, then do the following. On the inside of the reel, we look at how many grooves there are for winding the fishing line. There may be one or two of them. If there is only one groove, then both antennae are wound along this one groove. If there are two grooves, then each antenna is wound along its own groove. A reel with one groove should have a through hole through which the line is threaded. We unwind 2-4 m of fishing line, thread it through this hole so that it sticks out equally on each side of the fishing line. And we simultaneously wind both antennae of the fishing line in the same direction, opposite to the direction of rotation of the coil on the trimmer and coinciding with the direction indicated by the arrow on the inside of the coil. We leave a little of the fishing line unwound, fix the resulting ends in special grooves, and if they are not there, we hold them with our fingers. We pass both ends into the existing holes on the outer casing of the coil. Assembling the coil and attaching it to the trimmer.

If there are two grooves, fold a piece of fishing line 2-4 m long in half, insert the loop obtained at the place of the fold into the groove between the two grooves, and simultaneously wind both ends of the fishing line along its own groove. Further actions are similar to the previous option.

There are also reels in which the fishing line is threaded through a through hole on the inside. After that, the ends of the line, without winding, are threaded completely through the holes on the outer body of the reel, collect the reel and begin to rotate the button, which is usually pressed, in order to release the line during operation as it wears out. Rotate the button. the fishing line itself is wound inside. At the same time, it will not work to turn it in the “wrong” direction, since it can only rotate in one direction. If you get used to it, you can wind fishing line on such a reel without even disassembling it. you just need to combine the through hole of the inner drum with the holes on the outer body of the reel, and then thread the line through them.

That’s all on this issue. Happy winding!

Preparing to replace the line

Before replacing the line, you need to pull out and then disassemble the head. Usually it includes a casing, a spring (on some models), a bobbin with a line, a cover. It is necessary to disconnect the electric trimmer from the mains (or turn off the petrol trimmer), and then proceed to remove the coil. It can be fixed in two different ways: in the first case, it is necessary to completely disassemble the head, and in the second, just remove it from the gearbox shaft, on which it is attached.

find the latches on both sides, press and remove the cover to open the internal structure of the head;

there is a bobbin under the lid, it must be carefully pulled out of the case (sometimes a spring is hidden under it, it should also be carefully removed to the side so as not to lose it);

  • after removing the spool, a fixing bolt (or screw) becomes noticeable in the center of the body, which must be unscrewed in the opposite direction to the clockwise movement;
  • after removing the fasteners, it is necessary, holding by the housing, to remove the coil from the gearbox shaft with shaking movements.

The second method involves the following actions. The spool head is put on the gearbox shaft. To disconnect it, you need to lock this shaft. Usually in braids, for example, of the “Champion” or “Stihl” brand, a hole is made for this, into which a nail, rod or screwdriver is inserted. After fixing the shaft in a stationary position, it is necessary, holding by the housing, to start turning the head clockwise, since the thread on the shaft is usually left.

Now that the head has been removed and disassembled, it is necessary to determine how thick the cord should be. You can find out the correct diameter for your trimmer by looking at the owner’s manual or at the bobbin itself, usually this information is indicated on it. Another way is to insert the thread into the hole from which it is fed. If the shit goes without difficulty, it can be used for work.

How to wind line on a trimmer reel

Method 1. how to properly wind the line or put it on a reel and choose the required length

To implement this method, you will need to first prepare a fishing line of the required length (usually up to 4 meters). It all depends on the thickness of the equipment used, as well as the design of the coil. There is an easy way to find out the amount of line you need to refuel to charge the reel. To do this, wind the rig inside the coil until it is aligned with the side protrusions. In this case, the rigging should not go beyond these extreme protrusions.

The thicker the equipment used, the shorter its length will be needed and vice versa, the thinner, the longer the segment will be needed.

The instruction on how to properly tuck the equipment into the trimmer or lawn mowers is as follows:

  • To begin with, a piece of fishing line that was prepared to be installed in a reel must be folded in half. In this case, one edge should protrude more than the second by 10-15 cm
  • After that, take the second end from the other side, and fold it in half. Move to it so that the measured protrusion of 15 cm is preserved
  • There is a slot in the inner baffle of the coil, into which the resulting loop should be inserted. The cut in the wall is shown in the photo below.
  • Next, we find out the direction of winding the line. If you wind the rig in the wrong direction, then it will not function correctly, and you will need to redo the work. To insert the line and wind it in the correct direction, inspect the surface of the spool. The direction of winding should be indicated on it (in 99% of cases, this direction is indicated). What the direction indicator on the coil looks like is shown in the photo below.
  • This arrow-shaped pointer can also have the designation, as in the example above “WIND LINE”, which means the direction of winding. If the pointer is missing on the reel, then you need to look at the head. There is a direction of its rotation on the head, and in order to properly wind the line, wind it on the drum in the opposite direction to the indication of the arrow indicator. So, if the arrow is on the tip, then you need to wind in the indicated direction, and if it is not there, then you should wind against the direction of the arrow on the surface of the head
  • Having decided on the direction of rotation, you should start winding. Each end should be guided in its own groove. If there is no separator, then the equipment must be laid in the appropriate distribution order.
  • When almost all the fishing line is wound on a reel, you will need to do the following. place a short part in the hole of the side wall of the pickup, the protrusion of which should be up to 10-15 cm, and then do the same procedure with the other end, placing it in the hole on the parallel side
  • We insert the coil into the head, first passing the ends of the fishing line into the holes of the drum
  • We put the drum in place and, by pulling the ends of the line, we disengage them from the temporary clamps in the wall of the reel. After that, you can put on the cover until the latch engages.
  • This completes the process of how to replace the fishing line on the trimmer, and if necessary, you can only trim the ends (if their length does not suit), and install the assembled drum on the tool

How to remove the spool from the trimmer and remove the line

Initially, remove the line from the trimmer spool before inserting it into the trimmer spool. A reel or aiming device is a device that sits inside the mowing head, bobbin or drum. There are different types of heads (depending on the manufacturer), but the principle of replacing the line on the reel is the same for everyone. First of all, we will figure out how to remove the head from the tool, as well as how to get the drum and fishing line out of it.

It is interesting! The tooling can be changed directly on the tool, but if you are doing this for the first time, it is still recommended to remove the head and study the detailed winding process. After the technology has been mastered, you can perform replacement work on a trimmer lawn mower or lawn mower.

The instruction on how to unscrew the manual head on the trimmer is as follows:

  • Turn the tool upside down and, if necessary, clean it from dirt. With two fingers of one hand, grip the cover latches (on the mowing head), which are symmetrically positioned to each other. After lightly pressing them inward, remove the protective cover from the drum
  • Next, remove the line spool from the drum shaft. It is mounted on a shaft without fasteners, therefore it can be dismantled with one hand
  • The main part of the drum is fixed with a screw, which must be unscrewed with a screwdriver with an appropriate tip or bit
  • To unscrew, hold the drum base with one hand, and unscrew it counterclockwise with a screwdriver with the other.
  • After that, you can start dismantling. To do this, you do not need to pull it with all your strength, but slightly shaking it to the sides, slowly disengage it from the metal shaft on which the drum is seated.
  • When reinstalling, fit the head into the square slots

This process is not difficult, and as you understand, there is no need to dismantle the entire head if you know how the replacement is performed. When dismantling, consider the following nuances:

  • Periodic removal of the head is recommended to prevent corrosion of the threaded connection. If you never unscrew the screw, then if necessary, it will be difficult and even impossible to do this.
  • If the screw has a four-sided bore of the head, then for unscrewing it is necessary to select a screwdriver or bits of a suitable size in order to exclude the licking of the edges on the head
  • When assembling the unit, treat the threaded seat with lubricants, for example, grease or machine oil.
  • If the edges on the screw are licked, then special clamping pliers can be used to unscrew it.
  • There are drums that do not require preliminary disassembly. To dismantle them, grab it and rotate in the opposite direction to the clockwise direction

Knowing how to disassemble the drum, you should continue to figure out how to replace the trimmer line. The video below shows a detailed process on how to open the trimmer coil and disassemble it.

By size

Before you wind the thread on the trimmer spool, you should pay attention to its size. Most often, a line with a cross section of 2 mm is used.

You can choose a suitable diameter in the following ways:

  • See the recommendations in the manufacturer’s instructions for the trimmer.
  • Manufacturers often apply cross-section information to the bobbin.
  • The cross-section of the cord must match the diameter of the reel hole.

Important! The thicker the thread is tucked in, the harder the grass it can cut.

You can watch the video before work, and also take into account the following recommendations.

  • If there is only one track, both threads are wound parallel.
  • If there are two tracks, each section is wound in a separate groove.
  • Wind the threads in the opposite direction to the rotation of the head.
  • The length of the free ends should not exceed fifteen centimeters.
  • Thread the ends into the outlet holes.
  • Assemble the head and check the trimmer performance.

Advice! If the loose antennae are of different lengths, do not worry. During operation, excess ends will be cut off.

Auto feed trimmer: how to wind the line into the removable spool

In some models of trimmers, a reel is installed, in which the line is refueled automatically. It is enough for the owner to fix the ends in the head, after turning on the equipment, the mechanism will perform all the winding manipulations on its own.

You should know this! The strengths of the automatic trimmer head include the ease of winding. The disadvantages of such equipment are frequent breakdowns of a complex mechanism and high cost.

Things to consider when choosing a fishing line

It is important to choose the right material before inserting and locking the line into the detachable trimmer spool.

Rating of the best models of gasoline trimmer. An overview of manufacturers and models, as well as useful tips from experts reviewed in this review, will help in a difficult choice among many device models.

What are the trimmers and features of their use

The trimmer is useful for mowing small or difficult areas, such as near hedges, between beds and along paths. Today, manufacturers produce a wide variety of gasoline, electric and battery models, which can be selected for any owner’s request.

A fishing line is used as a cutting element of the trimmer. In the process of work, sooner or later its length will end, and then the question will arise before the owner of how to properly replace and fix the thread tucked into a removable spool.

By quality

Before putting on the line on the trimmer, you need to pay attention to the section of the cord:

  • round threads are the most common option. They cut the grass perfectly even in difficult areas;
  • Coiled line is suitable for thin grass. It is not very durable and is not suitable for old thickets;
  • a cord with notches and sharp edges is chosen for mowing weeds;
  • fishing line with a variety of geometric sections will help mow the lawn more evenly, but the strength of the consumable is low.

Important! Most wear-resistant consumable is 2-piece round, reinforced internally.

The owner of the lawn mower should know that it is strictly forbidden to use metal wire, fishing thread and various strings.

Backing

Every fisherman must know how to wind the line on the trimmer and what is backing. Backing is a reel spool reel. For this, a thread with a diameter of 0.1 to 0.3 mm is often used. If you use a thicker fluorocarbon as a reel, it can lead to uneven and uneven laying of the main line. It is highly undesirable to use wet materials for backing, such as nylon and cotton threads. They are unable to dry completely for a long time, which leads to a debate, and changing the line on the trimmer. these are additional financial costs.

The amount of thread needed for backing can only be determined empirically. This requires two spools. The required amount of working line is first wound onto one, and then the backing is wound in such a way that two millimeters remain to the edges of the side. After this procedure, the spool with wound fluorocarbon is removed and an empty one is put on, on which the thread is wound, only in the reverse order. first backing, then working nylon.

How to wind line on a trimmer

During winding, the handle of the reel should be turned smoothly, without jerks and at high speeds. Care should be taken to ensure that the thread runs in straight parallel lines. Do not wind too thick line that is not intended for this reel.

Smoothly winding fluorocarbon, you should pay attention to how much is left to the side. The optimal distance is 2 mm from the top layer to the edge of the side.

How to properly attach the thread to the trimmer

Winding the line to the trimmer. it’s a simple matter, but it requires some skill. First you need to firmly attach the reel to the rod. Then pass one end of the fluorocarbon through all the ears of the rod and fasten it to the spool. To do this, you need to raise the bow of the coil, wrap the fishing line around and tie it with an Arbor knot.

If the thread is stiff or thick, then before winding it should be immersed in warm water, after this procedure it will become more elastic and lie smoother. When winding, it is desirable that there is an assistant who would hold the bobbin with the fishing line. In the process, you should slightly slow down the fluorocarbon with your finger or a soft cloth.

What should be the length of the working thread

It all depends on the method of fishing and the reservoir. If a small length of line is required for fishing, then it should be less; if a long cast is required, then more fluorocarbon is needed. For a quick change in the field, every angler should know how to change the line on the trimmer. If the spool of the reel is deep, then approximately two thirds must be filled with a cheaper thread, while the remaining part should be wound with working fluorocarbon, which is necessary directly for fishing. The reel should consist of a thinner line than the working line, this will increase the density and not fall through the main.

How to wind line on a trimmer: examples and recommendations

As a rule, before going fishing, it is necessary to check all the tackle, the reliability of the connecting loops and the sharpness of the hooks. But do not forget about the backing, which is wound on a reel, because the success of fishing in general will depend on how you wind the line around the trimmer. Improperly wound, it can lead to a beard. which is quite difficult to untangle and which takes up a huge amount of precious time, the casting distance can be significantly reduced, and in general in such a situation it is better not to fish.

Coil selection

Beginning fishermen, due to their inexperience, pay little attention to the choice of a rod and tackle, and after all, the right equipment is the key to the success of fishing. Usually, spools are purchased with a spool size from 2000 to 3000, which can accommodate 100 meters of line with a number from 0.2 to 0.3 mm.

In addition to their size, they differ from each other in the way they are wound on a bobbin. You can wind the line on the trimmer spool with straight, cylindrical or tapered laying, it all depends on the model. It is also worth paying attention to the country of origin of fishing tackle. If the reel is of Chinese origin, from a cheap series, then always be prepared for line tangling during casts and the appearance of a beard. in addition, the cheap option fails quickly enough and requires repair or replacement.

With high-quality winding, fluorocarbon should form a strictly parallel stacking relative to the spool with a direct winding method, and inclined with a tapered.
