Questions & Answers

I have a Toro 12" electric trimmer. Numbers on it are either 1066015 or 51352 or 260195061. I am not sure which number you would need to identify my device. I need the trimmer thread cartridge with .065 size wire for this model. Again I see part numbers of 73-8190A and 105-9422. Not sure what info you need to advise me on the parts I need to be able to use my trimmer. I am hoping for a replacement cartridge with minimal work on my part to restring it.
