Fixed head systems use individual lengths of line that are loaded or threaded into the trimmer one at a time as needed. This avoids some of the hassles of winding line onto trimmer heads and makes the overall process of dealing with trimmer line less cumbersome.
A straight shaft trimmer with a solid steel driveshaft has a more durable construction than any trimmer with a plastic drive cable. It can use heavier-grade replacement string as well as optional cutting blade attachments in place of the string.
There are two types of string trimmers models– curved shaft and straight shaft. Curved shaft models are lighter weight and best suited for smaller yards and more intricate work. Straight shaft models work better for larger yards, and for reaching under decks and around obstacles.

How do you change a head on a poulan pro trimmer

I need to replace the whole trimmer head and I dont know how to get the gear case off so I can put the new one on. Can anyone help?
To replace the trimmer head you don’t need to replace the gear case. If you look closely about a 1/4 inch up from the safety guard you’ll see a hole in the side of the “gearcase” assemby. (you may have to clean the old dead grass clippings off to see it) You can shove a rod into the hole that will stop the head from spinning freely and I believe you spin the head clock wise (reverse threads) to remove the head.

Broken or worn shaft flex. Motor runs and head moves a little with no power. How to remove shaft from housing?
First, about 4 Torx screws hold the end of the flex-drive tube to the engine housing. Remove those.Then, remove the throttle cable from the throttle plate shaft of the carburetor. If any covers are in the way, remove them.If the handle has a stop switch on it, then you will want to remove the wires from the ignition module (unless you can pull the tube out far enough away to access the flex drive. If the stop switch is on the front engine cover, then fine.
Once the tube is free and clear, just grap the end of the flex drive and pull it out. If you reinstall it, reverse it end for end and grease it well with lithium-based grease. Post back if needed.

Just got new U Turn Trimmer head. It has line inside the head. I cannot get the thing apart to get to the line. It is not like the unit I took off from my Echo.
Push down and turn until it comes back up…now, on that spot that is all the way in, before it comes back up, pull up on it…got it ?? The release is located where the the spool is all the way down and getting the spool to “hang up” on that spot allows it to release…because it can’t when running makes it a perfect location
