Aint doing you any good like it is. Turn it so you can put some WD-40 in the cap to flow down into the threads. Wait 30 minutes and try to remove it with a large pair of Channel Lock pliers or a pipe wrench or call a neighbor for help.

How do you change the string on trimmer?

There are two ways to change the string on a weed eater depending on what type of weed eater it is. First you will have to manually maneuver the appropriate amount of nylon string into the string cap at the head of the string trimmer. Or you can replace the entire head cap with a brand new spool of string. You will have to figure out what type of string trimmer you have and than decide which of the above you will need to do.http:/

Pennzoil air cooled should work just fine. The specific ratio that you must use should be written on the actual weed wackier (probably on or around the gas cap.)

Best Weed Eater?

Choosing the right weed eater is important for the health of your lawn or garden. This article provides you with a guide on how to purchase the best weed eater.Types of weed eatersBefore knowing which weed eater to purchase, understand the different types available, as there are several. First, there are electric weed eaters. These are by far the most common type of weed eater. They start easily and are fairly quiet. Of course, you need to have an electrical outlet nearby (or a long extension cord). The second type of weed eater is a battery operated option. Unlike the electric weed eater, battery operated ones do not require an outlet. Unfortunately, batteries tend to die in the middle of operation, so you need extra ones on hand. The last kind of weed eater is a gasoline powered one. These are more portable than electric weed eaters, and handle tough projects easily. Unfortunately, they are really loud.Type of projectGenerally, for typical lawn use, most people can settle for low horse power when purchasing a weed eater, since their grass is thin and easily manageable. Obviously, for thicker, more difficult projects, a weed eater with more horse power is necessary.Knowing the type of project is essential to knowing which weed eater works best for you. BrandsThe brand is important for weed eaters. Stihl weed eaters consistently get top-notch reviews for all types of uses. They generally last for years, are lightweight and easy to reload. Another type that is lightweight and easy to use most of the time is Husqvarna, although they are not as durable as Stihls.There is a lot of variety out there when it comes to weed eaters. Knowing what type of weed eater you need and what type of projects you have, is essential for knowing what type of weed eater to buy.
