    IMPORTANT: BEFORE REPLACING A PART IN ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT THE APPLIANCE IS FIRST UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS.

    Replacing Trimmer Line in 6 Easy Steps:

    1: Remove the spool cover and inside. Be sure to check that the line has run out and not simply become tangled or stuck.

    2: Cut a length of new line, usually about 1.5 - 2m should be sufficient.

    3: Wind the line around the spool, being careful to feed the line through the guide holes.

    4: Leave a small amount of the line unwound and position ready for cutting.

    5: Fit the spool insert and cover back in place.

    6: Reconnect the power supply and test. Remember to unplug the trimmer if you need to make any adjustments.

    When using any electrical tools in the garden always use a RCD safety device
