This might be the dumbest question you've heard on here.....but I need it answered. I bought a used Echo SRM-2400. How dow you put new string on it? I dont have a book for it and the guy forgot to tell me how. So could someone please help me out? I dont know how to take the head apart or whatever you have to do. Thanks alot, and forgive me for my dumb question.

You just turn the bottom part of the head it has two nipples that it snaps into then you must put the string on counter clockwise or when you go to put the head on and use it the head will fly off and string will fly everywhere. Not to good of an instrction but it shold get you started.<p>

KC, Just get your local mower shop to show you.Might be an idea to rip the old head off<br>and replace it with a universal aluminium<br>head.It takes 1 piece of line of whatever <br>length you like.We buy line in 250 metre<br>rolls and cut it into 18&quot; lengths.These heads<br>are great,no moving parts.

steveair-most home depot stores hire people with experience in their department so that there is someone there other than the new hires when there is a question. I worked there for a short while a few years back and customers would bring me their spools and I'd wind the line for them. same story throught the store.<p>I hope you bought the stock a few years back. I did.<p>GEO

I like to use .105 or .130 line, i mostly use the .105 though for everyday trimming, the .135 for thicker grass, etc
