How to Safely Use a String Trimmer

Posted by LiDu on

Tips to Use a String Trimmer Properly



  1. To cut grass along obstacles, hold the trimmer head perfectly level to cut grass flat and evenly.


  1. To cut grass along the edge of a flower bed, rotate the trimmer vertically.

  2. Do not use string trimmers to cut grass against tree trunks. The monofilament line will cut into the bark, which could potentially kill the tree.

  3. When the rope breaks or wears out, run the mower at full speed and gently bang its head against the ground to extend the new line.

  4. To install a new cutting line, first remove the spool from the trimmer head. Then cut a piece of new string 8 feet long.

  5. Thread one end of the rope through the hole in the spool. Pull the ends of the rope even.

  6. Wind the string around the spool in the direction of the arrow engraved on the spool.
  7. Secure the ends of the rope in the notches on the edge of the spool.

  8. Reattach the spool to the trimmer, making sure to thread the ends of the rope through the holes in the spinning head.

  9. Pull each string to release it from the notches.

  10. For a self-winding head, pass the length of rope through the spool, then rotate the head to wind the rope onto the spool.

  11. Gasoline string trimmers come with straight or curved shafts.

  12. Electric string trimmers are quiet, but limited by the length of the extension cord.

  13. Battery powered string trimmers are lightweight, quiet, and can cut anywhere, but they don't have the power of a gasoline edger.

  14. Propane string trimmers burn cleaner and run quieter than gasoline models, but are just as powerful.
