String Trimmer Cordless 12″ 18V

I use the the edger for a minute and the line dissapers after only minimal use. How do i thread the line correctly so it will stay long enough to do the job?
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
This is not a threading problem.
don’t hit anything that is harder than the line you are using, like tree trunk, cement curb,etc…. the trim line is thin, if you want to, you can change the line to a thicker one. that should last little longer.
also, you can take out the line sizer (cutter) from the trimmer cover.

Usually this is the result of the cutting head being taken too close to objects, e.g. garden stones, paving edges, walls etc. The cutting line must be allowed to rotate freely and the correct diameter and type of line should be used.
There are a few possible reasons in which a string trimmer will excessively feed line. The incorrect type or size of line may be installed. Check the Operator`s Manual to verify that the correct trimmer line size for the model trimmer in question is being used. The indexing teeth, inside the inner reel, may be worn.
You need to ensure the battery is fully charged and the charger is correctly connected during the charging process. Another fault which can cause your Gtech trimmer not to work is the safety switch in the handle. To check it is operating correctly listen for a `click` when it is pressed.
Trimmer line does tend to dry out over time and becomes more brittle. Storing it or soaking it in water will help reduce line breakage and make the line more flexible. Be sure to deplete your supply of last year`s line before you purchase new line and begin using it.
What is the Difference? Lawn edgers are designed to cut edges and create boundary lines, whereas a string trimmer is designed to maintain those boundary lines. They make a great team! Both can help your lawn to look sharper.
This probably comes as no surprise to anyone, but the general rule with string trimmer line size is that the tougher the application, the thicker the line needs to be. A larger diameter line increases the power and durability of the line, which leads to less breakage and wear-out.
Understanding Trimmer Line Size

0.080 inches: Good for medium-duty tasks such as trimming around trees or bushes. 0.095 inches: Ideal for heavier-duty tasks such as cutting through thick weeds and tall grass in larger yards.

Cable ties as strimmer cord

Have you ever been in the middle of tidying the edges of your lawn when your strimmer cord gives up on you? Cable ties offer a great solution but if your first choice of ties break too, consider using thicker ones.

Need to change gas line tube – Craftsman Convertible 25cc. Gas Line Trimmer
ANSWER :

I need to replace to fuel lines on a Craftman 32cc trimmer. The old ones cracked apart. 2 of the lines look like 1/8″ OD one line looks like 3/32″ OD. Larger line looks like it hooks to filter, Smaller line to a fitting in the gas tank. I am assuming the smaller line ges to the primer inlet. My question is the lines penetrate the bottom of the gas tank. How do they seal. How do I install the filter and the fitting. I am assuming to thread the new lines in from the bottom of the tank and pull through the gas cap hole. Then I attach filter or fitting and pull back through. So do I pull the line so as to create a seal from the swell caused by the fitting/filter?
ANSWER : Depending on the brand of line you use, Tygon line is self sealing but seems to shrink faster then factory supplied because of the ethanol in the gas. The stone gas filter is designed to fall to the lowest part of the tank, not stop the line from falling out.

Fuel line goes into tank bottom line has filter how long is the top fuel line? this is coming from the primer bulb.
ANSWER : Fuel Line Replacement by SmallEng.com

The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, an output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill as it inflates).
The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.
Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs to help with reassembly.

The line with the filter needs to be long enough to reach all parts of the tank as the saw is moved, a little to long is probably better than to short. The line returning from the primer is not critical so long as it cannot fall out (mid tank). All the primer line does is return excess fuel to the tank. Does this answer your question?
