Whether you use your trimmer around the house, or professionally for your business, your trimmer line needs to be replaced regularly
We recommend that you always have some replacement trimmer line on hand.
To ensure your trimmer line remains flexible and elastic in each use, it should absorb moisture before each use. We recommend placing your line in water approximately 24 hours before the first use. If you are just bringing your trimmer out of storage from the off season, we also recommend removing the spool from the mowing head, and placing it in water for two days before use.
In this "Tech Chat with Chad" video, our Technical Manager for STIHL Canada, shows you how to easily re-spool your STIHL line head.
