    OK, let's see if anyone can help me, my KAW trimmer KTRA27A is starting to piss me off to on end, its a month old and I keep having issues with the trimmer line not wanting to release, today it got so bad I had to finish the trimming with the Craftsmen, it didn't have the same issue. I know how to rewind it so that's not it, my dealer gave me some different line to try 85, I was using .95///the .85 seemed to help for about 5 minutes... If anyone can help me please do before I cram that thing up my a&%! :realmad:

    I used to have the exact trimmer you describe.Click on the Oregon icon here on Lawnsite, and go to the trimmer head section. They make several different heads that fit the Kawi trimmer, just pick the one you want. For the record, in my experience, the so called "quick loader " heads are a waste of money ( and lots of time), unless you are gonna hack burly weeds with 155. line..

    I also used my origional ( the small head the trimmer comes with ) head, and had zero problems running .095-.105 ( .105 my absolute favorite ) Oregon Gatorline Magnum ( the aramid reinforced stuff ) .. I liked the O.E. head because even though it doesn't hold as much line as the bigger 6" head the dealer gave me when I bought mine, it is VERY light, and I found the capacity was more than enough to do at least 3 resi lawns before refilling. I hope I helped..

    If its not a wind issue but a line welding issue you can spray the line once on the head and the feed grommets with silicone and that will help the feed and stop the line welding. But I have to warn you....it is very slick.....LOL
