Maintenance of string trimmer is very important. The most troublesome aspect of a string trimmer is winding and rewinding the string.
To wind a string trimmer, first of all, keep the users' manual beside you. This manual will help you in the right technique. When you take out the reel from the spool, the leftover reel must be freed from the spool as per what is mentioned in the users' manual. The reel consists of a hole where the new string has to be put. When winding is being done, this space holds the string. During winding process, it should be done slowly and steadily. The winding should be done in a manner so that each winding line ends up being perpendicular to the other winding line. The reel after winding can be taken out from an outer hole. The end of the reel is then brought down after putting it into the trimmer. This completes the threading procedure and then one can begin trimming. If the trimmer has double holed reel, then you have to put in the string in both the ends and then after winding, the ends can be inserted back into the heads of the trimmer.
