How to Restring a Dewalt Weed Eater: A Step-by-Step Guide

Do you have a Dewalt weed eater that needs a new string? Perhaps you’re not sure how to go about restringing it. Well, you’ve come to the right place! In this blog post, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of restringing your Dewalt weed eater.

It’s actually a lot easier than you might think! So don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Remove the Old String

Remove the old string from your Dewalt weed eater. To do this, turn off your machine and remove any debris that may be clogging up its head (this can include dirt or grass).

Step 2: Remove any Remaining String

You should now be able to see where the spool of the string is located on top of the device’s housing unit. Remove any remaining string from this area with your fingers – once you’ve done that, use pliers to cut off any excess pieces.

Step 3: Cut the New Line

Now we’ll need some new line. Cut off about 30 feet (roughly nine meters) of 0.065-inch diameter nylon monofilament weed eater cord into small pieces.

Step 4: Tie a Loop Knot

Take one of the small pieces that you just cut and tie a simple loop knot in one end of it. This will be your “stringer.”

Step 5: Feed the String Stringer

Feed the string stringer through the hole on top of the spool, making sure to keep the loops parallel to each other as you do so.

Tie another loop knot at the end of this piece of string as well; then insert it into its corresponding hole on top again, pulling tight but not too tightly – you want there to be just enough slack in between loops so that they don’t get caught up when winding new line onto your Dewalt weed eater’s spool.

Step 6: Start Winding

Now it’s time to start winding! Hold the string stringer in one hand and turn the spool with your other. Be sure to keep the loops parallel as you wind, and make sure not to overlap them – this will ensure that your new line is evenly distributed on the spool.

Step 7: Cut Off Any Excess String

Wind until you’ve reached the desired length of string; then, cut off any excess with scissors or a knife. Now tie another loop knot at both ends before inserting it into its respective holes again (make sure not to pull too tightly).

Step 8: Thread More Lines

Finally, thread some more lines through each hole on top and out from underneath the spool so that it hangs down (you can do this by hand or with pliers). This will help keep the line from coming loose as you work.

Step 9: Test It Out

Turn on your machine and test out your new string!

There you have it – a simple, step-by-step guide to restringing your Dewalt weed eater. Now, you’ll never have trouble with this again.
