Worn down bump knob, generally poor function of line feed
Very simple replacement. After 5 years of using the same feed-spool head, I swear, I couldn't complete a trimming session without powering down and manually getting the line fed back through. I've replaced the bump head knob many times, but never thought about replacing the spool.

If you use one of these, you're probably already quite familiar with removing the spool-head and threading it, etc. Replacing the whole thing was a smart move, and has done the trick, I should have done it sooner. Works perfectly again.

    The weed wacker head arrived quickly and solved my issue.
    Guest - October 8, 2019 Verified Purchase
    Great service, quality parts!
    I received the parts in good time. After installing the parts , the trimmer worked as well as when new. My only disappointment was somehow I must have deleted the part I purposed for the order resulting in buying it locally at a much higher price. My bad!
