    I always wondered about those guys that keep the trimmer line spools on the trailer, All our trimmers take a 20ft section, 10ft for each side and you have to find the center of the line, I have always pre-cut pieces and marked the center with a black marker. How do find the center when you are out in the field though? Is it just a guess?

    I usually guess, but the best way is to get your line cut, then take both of the cut ends and hold them in one hand. While with the other you stretch out the slack until you come to the center of the line. This always works for me. Hope this helps.
