    i replaced my spool on my 2400 redmax today. the dealer said i had to replace the complete assembly and could not just buy the spool. does this sound right?. $35 later i am thinking this is going to be expensive. i will need at least one a year. i like the weedeater but i am going to have to give the nod to stihl for cheap, easy spool replacement......clay

    I replaced the head on our Redmax split-boom with an Echomatic head (the Redmax head was a pain in the hindquarters to reload), I dont think that they run $35 smacks though...I dunno?

    However $35 spread out per cut, per year...that machine is making you money, yes? Wear and tear.

    You can buy just the cord holder, its about $7.00 I think. Part number is T3189-15142. Our whole heads usually last about 1 season.

    Yes I Bought The Just The Spool Today From My Dealer For Just $9.00. The Head Is Actually Broken Into Like 5 Different Parts, But Having A Complete Backup Is Not A Bad Idea.
