Bosch art 23 easytrim to change the blade

Tucking the fishing line into the grass trimmer for grass.

Today’s article I want to devote to the painful theme of dacha owners and gardeners all over the former Soviet Union “How to tuck the line into the trimmer for the grass”. Not many trimmer manufacturers answer this question in their operating instructions. That’s why it’s hard for ordinary gardeners to figure out how to do it right.

I want to start with a brief description of the technical characteristics of trimmers.

So, grass trimmers for grass are electric and gasoline. The cutting element in trimmers can be a fishing line and a knife. The fishing line can be ordinary, four. pentahedral and intertwined (pigtail). Blades come in 2, 3 and 4 blade blades. Blades can also be plastic or metal.

Grass trimmer’s line feed system for grass comes in manual, semi-automatic and automatic.

Design engineers, who create new models of trimmers, clearly calculate the diameter (thickness) of the line and the number of blades of the blade, according to the power of trimmers. Otherwise, the engine is overloaded, resulting in engine failure. And this is an additional and substantial expense.

Today the market has grass trimmers for grass:

With one attachment, only the line. With two nozzles. fishing line and three-four blade knife. With one attachment. only the three- to four-blade blade.

Our craftsmen learned a long time ago to improve any mechanism. So, for example, some gardeners, make successful, in their opinion, replace the fishing line with a metal cable, or fishing line. But at the same time do not think about the safety of their own and their loved ones, because the cable at the power of working grass trimmer can easily break free and not only injure the mower and others, but leave a cripple for life. Using fishing line can and gives a better effect, I’ve never personally tried than a fishing line for grass trimmer for grass, but such work has a number of inconveniences: in contact with solid objects rassatatyvaetsya or can just limitlessly pulled out of the spool.

So, what is called closer to the subject. Here is an example of how to thread fishing line into a weed trimmer (Bosch Art 30 weed trimmer). It is very easy. Started.

Once you have chosen the line for refilling, you need to cut the necessary amount of line, because all the line in the coil will not wind up in the spool.

Removing the spool and the protective cover from the spool.

Retrieved from. We attach one end of the fishing line to the gap and gently and evenly wind the line.

The amount of line should be such, that the protective cover of the spool closed and the line on the spool unwinds a little by itself.

Insert the other end of the line through the hole in the blade guard.

Then we take the spool and the spool guard. Let the end of the line slip from the spool through the hole in the metal cover of the spool. Slightly tighten the line.

Put it all on the grass trimmer for grass. Turn the spool clockwise until you hear a click.

Secured. Now we connect the grass trimmer to the mains. Place the grass trimmer in its original operating position. Turn on the grass trimmer for grass. Excess line length will be cut off against the trimmer blade.

My trimmer has a standard line for mowing lawns and a thicker line for cutting through tough weeds. The line is shaped like a pigtail, i.e.е. The three lines are tightly intertwined with each other. This line has its own spool.

Thick fishing line

It is stored in the upper part of the body of the grass trimmer for grass.

Storage for spare spool

Installing this line in the spool is very simple. by internal circuitry inside the spool. The center of the line with a metal fastener is inserted in the upper part of the spool, and the ends of the line through the grooves and outward.

Heavy-duty line in spool

It’s attached to the grass trimmer reel in the same way as a normal line reel.

How to wind the line on a Bosch grass trimmer

Grass trimmer for grass is the most common unit used for cutting grass and cutting small bushes. This machine has its own ease of maintenance, easy operation in its time of operation, and thanks to the low weight even ladies can handle the baby. It’s no secret that high-quality grass-cutting jobs require the right cutting attachment. For the latter, trimmers use special cutting heads (disks, knives) or trimmer head with a fishing line inside. Nozzles and fishing line. it is an expendable tool, if the knives are an option to sharpen, then the consumption of fishing line requires its replacement. Below we will very carefully tell you how to correctly change the line.

A grass mowing head is essentially a cylindrical body in which a spool is inserted with the line (cord) tucked in. This design can be installed on both gasoline and electronic trimmers. Heads differ in the method of filing and filament feeding and come in 3 types.

  • Automatic. Cord feeding is done when user lowers RPM of motor. Although automatic filament feeding and comfortable, if you make a huge amount of work, these bobbins have one drawback. a large consumption of thread.
  • Automatic. Implementation of this type of head does not require the user to perform complex manipulations. The way they work is that the cord is lengthened by an automatic, like an office bobbin, when the machine is running at full speed. Just a little hit the grass trimmer head for grass on the ground (this removes the lock cord), and the line thanks to the centrifugal force is pulled out of the bobbin, and then cut to a suitable length knife, placed on the protective casing.
  • Manual. To extend the cord requires the machine to stop, once completed, the line is stretched manually.

From the considerations above, automatic bobbins are the best option. It should also be noted that the grass trimmer spool for the grass are single-tool (used only for trimming grass) and double-tool, which are used to mow the highest grass and small, with thin trunks of shrubs.

Long before you begin the process of changing the filament, trimmers must remove and disassemble the spool. Let’s see how to do it.

Grass trimmer mowing head consists of several parts: cover, spring (not all models), bobbin with cord and cover.

Attention! Before proceeding to any maintenance actions on the electronic unit, it must be disconnected from the mains.

Grass trimmers in most cases use 5 types of mowing head attachment.

What to remove the head trimmer for the grass will need a complete disassembly.

    What to remove the cover, covering the inside of the head, you need to put pressure on the locks (latches) located on two sides of her.

This version of the head is screwed on the gearbox shaft. To remove it, you will need this popular rumor shaft will be fixed. For this purpose, similar trimmers, such as devices Huter and Champion, foreseen hole through which there is a variant to stick or narrow screwdriver or iron bar.

What do you need to remove the bobbin, do 2.7 regular steps.

  • Stick a screwdriver in the hole and lock the shaft.
  • Grasp the head body and start twisting it clockwise. You should twist in this direction because the thread cut on the shaft is left-handed.

How long is the project, what model grass trimmer for grass is used, choose the type, thickness and length of the line. Cord cross section a is possible from 1,4 to 4 mm. it is easy to guess that the thicker you tuck the cord, the harder and thicker grass he is able to cut.

Almost always use a universal line with a cross-section of 2.4mm.

In order to find out which line cross-section is used on your mower, there are 3 methods.

  • See the information on the thickness of the cord in the annotation to the machine.
  • Look at the bobbin itself. Here you can see information about possible line cross-sections.
  • Insert the fishing line into the exit hole. If it goes there without effort, then cord of that cross-section to use of course.

The line is wound on a reel in the mowing head. Because first it must be opened (mentioned above). There are 2.7 methods of winding the cord.

bosch, easytrim, change, blade

To find exactly how many meters of line will be needed for a particular spool, you need to wind it on the bobbin in such a way that the coil does not exceed the cross-section of edges. If the fishing line will peek out over the edge of the reel, you can not stick it into the casing. When you have decided on the length of the material, it must be tucked into the bobbin, so do the following.

  • Need to fold the line in half, so that one end was longer than the other by 10-15 cm.
  • You should note that the bobbin is divided into 2.7 part of the central rim, which is where you start charging. Find the groove in it and stick the cord there, bent in half, with a little force.
  • It is important to find the direction in which the line is wound on the spool. If you look closely, of course you can find an arrow or an inscription with an arrow on the bobbin, showing in which direction you want to wind the bobbin. There are cases when there is no arrow on the spool. Under these circumstances, see the arrow drawn on the mowing head and wind the cord in the opposite direction.
  • The winding has to be done carefully with the greatest possible tension.
  • If the cord laying will be completed, it will be necessary to fix the small end of the line at first, inserting it into the matching cross-sectional groove on the sidewall of the bobbin.
  • The 2nd end, the longer one, is fastened in the groove on the back side of the bobbin.
  • After fixing the fishing line, cut the ends, leaving an allowance of about 10 cm.
  • Next place the threaded spool in the mowing head. For this purpose, by alternately inserting and pulling up the thread through the exit and holiday holes of the head, place the bobbin in the casing, after completing, applying the required force, pull the line from the fixing grooves and pull it up.
  • Now of course put on the cover and fasten it with the clips.

Bosch ART 23 EASYTRIM grass trimmer

Some spools have a second method for securing the cord: You may charge 3.5 lengths of thread, instead of 1 folded in half. The method of changing the fishing line is as follows.

  • Before you change or charge the new thread in the spool, determine how many meters of it will need the method discussed above.
  • Bend one end of the cord in the form of a hook.
  • Find a hole on the day of the bobbin, created for fixing the line, and stick the end of the thread bent in a loop.
  • Wind the cord in the direction of the arrow up to the required level, not exceeding the diameter of the spool.
  • Do the same for the second cell of the bobbin.
  • Assembly of the head is no different from the method used when we considered the threading of the bobbin folded in half a piece of fishing line.

For brushcutter brand Shtil there is a very common and sharp method of changing the line without disassembling the mowing head, join in which of course, watch this video.

The filament ends protruding from the holes in the cover can be cut to the right length after the piece is installed in the trimmer. This is an option to do 2 methods:

  • turning on the grass trimmer for grass (when rotating the ends of the line will be cut on a knife, secured such purposes on the protective cover);
  • cut the extra ends with scissors so they do not touch the body of the hood.

The 2nd method is used in case the cord has to be of a large cross-section and the trimming blade has no right to shorten it.

If the thread charging in the mowing head is made, but the length of the protruding ends of the cord is missing, then before starting the machine they must be lengthened. this applies to the head with manual adjustment. There are, however, cases where automatic mowing heads are used and the mowing head is not able to extend the mowing line because the length of the projecting filament ends is insufficient. Here you need to turn off the unit (an electronic device must be unplugged), manually press the button at the bottom of the detail, and pull a little line. After this procedure, the cord will be able to move out again due to the centrifugal force, if you set the highest rpm of the spindle.

no matter how thick the line is, you should keep in mind: to avoid daily interruptions in work or even changing the line, you should avoid the areas where the line touches hard surfaces (stones, kerbs, thick dry twigs, etc.) and.д.).

Probably the users of trimmers ask: what is the option of changing the cord, usually used in this type of devices? The dangerous experiments are carried out by inserting iron or copper wire, iron cords or ordinary fishing lines into the mowing head.

If you replace the fishing line with a cable made of metal, the grass trimmer for grass is converted into a dangerous device not only for the user, but for the people around. This fact is explained by the fact that in the course of machine operation the metal cord will evenly actuate, its ends will unravel, and small pieces of wire will fly in different directions at high speed.

A similar happens with the use of metal or copper wire, only with the difference that torn off pieces will be larger, and there are variations to cause significant injury.

If you accidentally catch himself or someone else’s foot, working with a machine with an iron cord (wire), the strong and deepest tissue cuts, and sometimes amputation of toes for you secured. The manufacturer does not use nylon for this purpose in vain, as it is quite light and strong, and at breakage does not fly far away and can not even cause injury.

Use a fishing line in the trimmer instead of the standard one, for sure, but it will add extra trouble for you, because it quickly wears out, tears, mows slowly and also for cutting tough grass will not suit. Even so, during the work is missing a long period for the fact that no time to change a broken tool.

Realistically, the installation of ordinary fishing line is justified, if the user is going to mow grass near the fence, especially if it is from the netted rabiza. Here, to save a standard, and from time to time expensive cord from wear and tear, it is changed to fishing line, which is not sorry. Usually to change a cord on a fishing line it is necessary to choose its bigger thickness. 2-3 mm.

When landscaping summer houses, park areas and other places where you want to mow different plants, it is often necessary to change the cutting tool in the trimmer. This is dictated by the fact that the standard cord installed in the mowing head can only handle grass. However, when on the way of an employee appears brush or young growth of trees, the line is unable to cope with such a task, and requires its replacement for a more effective cutting tool.

Manufacturers of domestic trimmers have provided for such situations, and supplemented their products with a mass of nozzles in the form of knives with several “petals” or type of discs similar to circular saws.

If you change the line to a knife with a few “petals ”, this tool can mow both higher grass and plants with thick and dry trunks. And by changing the fishing line to a disc, the brushcutter user can cut down bushes or small trees.

Use the following method to install the blades and discs.

  • It is immediately necessary to remove the mowing head by locking the shaft (turn clockwise), as it is also called a nut with a dust cap, if the machine is not yet used.
  • Install the saw or cutter blade in such a way that they are seated on a small projection (bushing).

For the best way to understand how to change the tool, look for this video.

Users of trimmers, both gasoline and electronic, from time to time have problems with the cord. “Advanced” Those who use it have no problem understanding why it happens, but beginners find it difficult to explain inaccurately. Alas in fact, our client is solved quite easily. The most frequent problems with the line are.

If the line is often torn, it may be a variation of the following conditions:

  • Pebbles, small branches and other hard obstacles are caught in the grass;
  • the user mows the grass close to the fence, if it is netted, it rips off even faster “tendrils”;
  • bad quality of cord (it is recommended to buy a high quality cord)
  • Exit holes in the mowing head are worn out, which causes the line to rub against the sharp edges of the sleeves and break (a complete replacement of the part will be necessary).

Bosch ART 26 SL grass trimmer full video

For the most part, the cord ends quickly if you often bang on the ground with the automatic head, or press it down very hard. The reel is unlocked, and the line, lengthening, is cut by the knife. One more reason why the wire rope is running out fast is that the operator often slows down the engine rpm while mowing. But as we remember, automatic head is arranged so that exactly at each decrease in speed a new portion of the line is fed, because it is quickly consumed.

It happens that the thread unwinds if the spring in the automatic head is loose. The line is continuously pulled out and cut by the blade mounted on the hood, so it increases its consumption. To check this, remove the blade guard and operate the machine. If the line “is loose”, it will be necessary to change the spring.

A precondition for the cord to unwind after starting the machine will also be a spring loosening inside the head. In addition, there are cases where the mowing head breaks when the machine is turned on, and the spring installed here is missing. Inexperienced users don’t notice the absence of spring and assemble this assembly without it. The filament could not hold and fly out due to centrifugal force.

The automatic head should feed the line without stopping the machine. If it does not come out, the following circumstances occur:

  • the line is wound incorrectly in the spool, because of which the latter does not spin;
  • Cord is wound unevenly and the thread can get stuck between the coils (thread should be wound accurately, with a turn of the coil, without skewing);
  • out of the holes very short ends of the thread, for this reason there is little centrifugal force to extract them, and the line is not fed (recommended before starting the machine always adjust the length of the cord, slightly tightening it);
  • the line is stuck together (to be discussed later).


This problem occurs in most cases due to the use of bad cord. During the operation of the machine, the head of the grass trimmer for grass gets hot, and the bad line melts there, sticking to each other. Also sintering of the threads occurs when the line meets a rigid obstacle. Under such circumstances, there is a sudden braking of the cord, then it is pulled into the head, where it is stuck. Some owners of units advise to lubricate the cord with mineral oil or spray it with silicone spray after winding on the bobbin. Others recommend winding less thread on the bobbin. I have had very good luck with my previous trimmer, but I have had very good luck with my previous trimmer.

My testimonial: My Bosch ART 26 EasyTrim electric grass trimmer. Quality grass trimmer for the grass for the country house

I didn’t have much luck with trimmers last year. My grass trimmer Bosch ART 23 EasyTrim, after many years of service to me, broke. After that, I bought a grass trimmer for the grass Bosch ART 30 CombiTrim and Electric grass trimmer for grass Huter GET-600, both quickly failed, and I gave the warranty, after which I decided not to experiment and took almost the same grass trimmer for the grass, as the first Bosch, but with a slightly larger diameter for cutting.

Ordered, as well as the last two in Yulmart already closer to the fall last year, around August. It worked for me for about a month last year, and so far it successfully works this year, so it’s safe to express my opinion about this grass trimmer model. The grass trimmer for grass was in a standard box for this trimmer series.

It really was a little larger than the previous model, and in the box it was in a disassembled form.

But once connected once parts of the grass trimmer for grass, it remains indestructible forever. They fit securely and permanently.

The cover also had to put it on by itself, and I will not take it off again, although it is possible.

And this is the reel I have known for a long time. For me, this is the most familiar design.

With years of experience using these reels, I know the pros and cons. The line on such a spool is comfortable enough, you can use a line thickness up to 2 mm. The new reel throws the line when it hits the ground. Over the years, the middle part, the semi-transparent ring, wears out, as it did with my previous trimmer. The Bosch ART 23 EasyTrim and 26 reels are absolutely identical and interchangeable, but it is problematic to order a replacement, although theoretically possible. I never waited last year, I ordered it, it never arrived. The line is fastened and wound easily.

Reel is ready for grass mowing. The line lasts a long time. On tough grass and branches line breaks partially, but while the grass trimmer for grass is new, the line is thrown well, I prefer to turn the grass trimmer for grass, check the line, and lightly pressing the head, it extends.

Easy to reel in, just clicks into place.

This is my personal favorite reel design.

If you compare with the previous Bosch ART 23, this grass trimmer for the grass is slightly larger in diameter mowing, which is a definite plus, but the boom was shorter, as it’s strange. The boom is not retractable. seems to be a minus, but. I’ve tried two grass trimmers with retractable booms before, and they constantly moved out and folded while working. So it works safer with a non-sliding boom. The grass trimmer for the grass is not long, just under my height of 164 cm. It will not be very comfortable for a tall person to work with. Bosch ART 26 shorter.The push-button on the handle is not fixed, you may mow while holding it. It happens when carrying the grass trimmer accidentally turn on, a small disadvantage.

It seems to be only three cm larger diameter mowing, and to work an undeniable plus, the power is the same, 300 watts, the electricity consumes very little, and the power is quite enough.

It can manage with low grass trimmer in one go.Up to.

What I do not like about the device grass trimmer for grass is that the hood is clogged with finely chopped grass, grass trimmer for grass is immediately heavy, and as the work, it has to be manually removed.

The grass trimmer for grass cope great and with overgrown grass, but I prefer to cut the overgrowth with a secateurs, otherwise the line will break all the time.

I have no time to mow, the grass is almost waist high already.

But the grass trimmer is still quick to mow everything. I’ll mow right under the base.

For me as a woman, this trimmer is comfortable to work. It’s light enough, the vibration is minimal, it’s not noisy, I almost don’t get tired. It takes too long to mow, compared to a gasoline mower. If a benzosoy field 2 hundred square meters can cut for an hour, then this trimmer, I’ll do it in three trips, two hours, three, slowly, with pauses. Grass trimmer for the grass and during prolonged work does not heat up at all. I left it out in the open the other day, it was on the lawn in the rain for two weeks. Nothing, it still works. I was worried, but it worked out fine. So we have a lawn mower, too, and with this trimmer I mow under bushes, curbs and small areas, all the work goes faster. The last time we had a lawn mower got cranky, and the grass trimmer for grass helped out, mowed the rest of the lawn.I started the site, the grass is tall for a month.

For a couple of hours with such an area grass trimmer has coped.

In a word, the grass trimmer mows the lawn well, and I don’t need more from it. My plot is not flat, so a lawn mower is not good enough, but the grass trimmer is great for the grass.

weed trimmer for grass. thing indispensable in the country, even if there is a lawnmower or lawn trimmer for hard-to-reach areas for mowing. It seems that this grass trimmer for grass only comes as a curb, but with small areas of even high grass it does well. My 9 acres with plants and buildings, he trimmed, even one, within his power.
