If you`re working with a Homelite trimmer, you`ll need to get Homelite spool and line. This item, the AC41RL3, is a pre-wound spool of . 065” trimmer line that will let you complete a variety of outdoor jobs. If you need to get to work quickly, this is the kit you need.
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 grass trimmer is used to trim lawn edges where a mower can`t reach. A trimmer with a curved shaft is often used for easy trimming around lawns and flowerbeds. Machines with straight shafts and bevel gears are designed for more demanding jobs and they make it easier to reach under hedges, bushes and similar places.
If you decide to run a longer trimmer line, you need to completely remove the guard. If you only remove the blade, the trimmer line will get too long and get wrapped up in the guard. As the string wraps around the guard it increases the resistance on the engine and causes the engine to lose its power and RPMs.

My Homelite Mighty Lite has developed perished fuel lines. (12 months after purchase!!!!!!) Is it possible to obtain spare fuel line…. preferably attached to a new fuel tank as well. It looks like a really hard task to change only the lines.

Many thanks.

ANSWER : The fuel lines can be purchased separately usually by the foot from any outdoor power equipment dealer. They can be easily installed by cutting one end at an angle and “feeding” it through holes. Homelite fuel lines are of a different OD than most so make sure you get the proper size. The most popular size for Homelite is OD .203 ID .04.
