    I am attempting to remove the head on a SRM 230 in order to install a rapid loader. I have installed these before, however I cannot get the head off the trimmer this time. There are no instructions for removal in the owner's manual. If anyone could help explain the procedure I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

    shove the little rod into the end of the trimmer and twist the head CLOCKWISE. It has left-handed threads.

    buy a strap type wrench to get that sucker off very easily. harbor freight sells them and you will thank yourself for getting one. and tb8100 is correct about the removal.
