Guard on head broke. No longer had contro of cutting string length.
I replaced the guard complete with cutter. Two screws and your done. Oh yes, a little heads up, the blade is packed with a clear plastic tape to protect during shipping and storage, don\'t forget to remove the tape.
Part was easy to find on eplacementParts.com and they shipped very fast.
I would like to suggest you visit here first when looking for replacement parts for you equipment.

Hello Legend,

The 90540850 Upgrade Kit pertains to owners of the type 1 models. This Converts The Type 1 To The Type 2 Head) The Type 1 Outer Spool Is No Longer Available.

I have a GH1000 type 1 trimmer, it is missing the cap and i do not know which housing i have, either the Type 1 or the Type 2.
i want to upgrade to the type 2 part #90540850, but i whild like to know how ii is done.
Thanks, Don
I have received 2 e-replacement spools as ordered. One I used and it became distorted and broken. The ABS plastic of which it is made is now too thin to use the diameter line it is supposed to use. The spool top breaks, and the center line-dividing separator breaks as well. The plastic is simply too thin or of a different type or quality. This was not a problem on the original spool, which I used for years. I have ordered another backup spool. I would hope that the new spool is better made, stronger. Otherwise the GrassHog by Black & Decker can be considered another worthless throw-away tool because the replacement parts are worthless. This has been the reputation for other Black & Decker tools, as I have been told.

how long does the string last?
WJA
Reply: String

Hello jimbo114,

That is a difficult question to answer. It all depends on what you are trimming, if your hitting a fence, concrete and other items other then grass. The more you use it, the more you'll find out how long it will last.

Hope this helps,

Avoid anything that is not smooth round string. Square, star and hex shape string wreak havoc with the auto feed system. Have used the twisted quite string with no issues yet. Amazing thing is that bright neon string that comes from the factory and on repalcement spools is the best but not found anywhere else in mass quanity.

Question: Guard Assembly #478535-00

Does the Guard Assembly come with the screws and needed attachment to hold it in position?
Warpig
Reply: Guard Assembly #478535-00

Warpig

Part 43 comes with screws and blade on the plastic shield. I have found little silicone at the contact areas of the blade helps avoid vibrating off. There is two screws but three holes. Also the bottom curve of the guard where it meets the head also siliconed helps stress fractures from forming due to vibration. Take good care of your GH1000. The new model is a POS.

The two hex drive screws that hold the shield do not come with this assembly. Have to reuse the old ones or order new if missing. I also use silicone caulk where the guard contacts the mounting surface. Thise reduces vibration to slow the strees vibraction cracks that will still happen.

Question: Plastic Guard

BeretDude

Does the plastic guard come WITH a cutting blade?
WJA
Reply: Plastic Guard

WJA

Hello BeretDude,

If you want the guard with the cutting blade installed on it, you will need to order part number, 478535-00. Part number, 478536-00 is the guard only.

Hope this helps,

Question: Replacing This Part

I can't get the old outer housing off of the trimmer. Any suggestions?
FredRock
Reply: Replacing This Part

FredRock

I just recived this replacement housing and cap as well.

I was able to get the old one off by first removing the screw, then prying with two screwdrivers from opposite sides between the old cap and the base.

Mine popped right off but it required me to pry from both sides at the same time.

When doing it this way, it didn't require very much force, that was my only concern as I didn't want to break anything.

Question: Gears

My Type 2 GH1000 has plastic gears. It has a melted gear. The gear ate the belt.

Can I just get the plastic drive gear?
WJA
Reply: Gears

Hello misterp,

Unfortunately the manufacture does not supply the plastic gear as a service item. The complete motor assembly, part number 90557035 would have to be ordered.

Hope this helps,

The plastic gear was obviously a misstep in the original design, which is why the new replacement part is made with a metal gear as it should have been all along.
The question is whether the part supplied in the current models uses the plastic gear or this new one.
To make a plastic drive gear integral with the motor and thus nonreplaceable is really shortsighted. The belt outlasted the gear on one I opened up.
WJA
Reply: Gears

WJA

Hello BMole,

I just came from the warehouse. While I was there I checked the gears on the 90557035 motor assembly. Both the gears are metal. As far as being able to replace a gear that has gone bad. That is manufacture issue. I would be much more contented for the customer, If you could replace just the gears only.

Hope this helps,

Try to recut the gear grooves before you put another belt on. My plastic gear was also melted, but the grooves were still there. The flange of the gear was rolled over into the grooves which makes the belt not track right and jack out of tracking. I used a jewelers screwdriver blade to clean the plastic out of those grooves up to the flange area.The grooves are still there. Try that first.

is there any thing like a spring that is needed for the lever to work
Warpig
Reply: Lever

The lever works on inercia. Dirt/mud that keeps it from freely moving back and forth can make it fail. Also the common fail is the brass sleeved nipple that sticks up breaks off and then the string makes a neat bird nest. The new white nylon replacement lest no longer then the old black one. For $1.08 always good to have a spare on hand.

Hello fwbslb19,

The driven belt pulley (gear) on the 90557035 Motor Assembly is made of metal.

The driving gear (pulley on the motor) is Aluminum
The driven gear is plastic and couples to the flexible drive shaft.

These gears are sized for a 15mm width belt. My unit was shipped with a 10mm belt.

I suspect this is an attempt to protect the flexible shaft which drives the string spool rotation. The unit has a strong motor driving a weaker drive train......

I working my backyard using this electric grass trimmer and all of a sadden the motor is running but the trimmer is not working and i dont know whats wrong.
WJA
Reply: Grasshog XP Trimmer

WJA

Hello everlaya08,

There are a couple of parts to look at that may be causing this problem on your GH1000 Trimmer. You will have to take the housing apart. Once you do that, look at item #4 on the parts diagram to see if it is broken, it is the drive belt. Also look at item # 13 the flex shaft to make sure it's not broken. I'm guessing it will be the drive belt.

Good luck,
WJA

My GH1000 did the same thing. The large pulley that drives the flex shaft is PLASTIC! It melted. I cannot find the part (large pulley). Perhaps it was "Fig 2" which is no longer on the parts diagram.

Hello JimK,

Unfortunately the manufacture does not supply the large drive pulley. You would have to order the complete motor assembly if you want to replace the pulley. It is part number 90557035.

How do you get the #18 lever out of the casing to replace it in the Grass Hog XP?
UtahAV
Reply: GH 1000 Lever #18

Hi Mic,

The lever is held in by three, small, plastic barbs. To remove it you just simply pull it straight out. The new one will click into place.

I hope this helps!

Reply: GH 1000 Lever #18

Warpig

Remove screw from center of where spool slides on. Slowly and gently work around the spool housing and flex shaft base with flat tip to pop it up. Once removed can squeeze the barbs together to slide it out. There is a thin thin ring of plastic those barbs grab onto. Forcing the broken lever out will cost you $4.03 for new spool housing. Grass don't stop growing while you wait for shipping again.

Question: B&D Grass Hog Xp Gh1000

The belt seems to have slipped off of the shaft pulley. I can not seem to get the case open. I believe I have taken out all of the screws, but something is still holding it together near the button that allows you to twist the shaft.

Hey John,
Look and see if there is a sticker going over both sides of the casing still holding it together..if so you can just remove or take a razor blade and go along the seam..also keep an eye out for extra screws or clips holding it together..good luck!
Hope this has been helpful..

There's a screw hidden under the label that shows you how to rotate the head. Peel back the label, and you'll see it.
