    I purchased the Echo U-Turn head from an online dealer for $10. its new and still in its packing. the install instructions are awefull. I cant even figure out how to open the damn thing to install the bolt. Iv got the old one open and all but the new one is pissing me off

    thanks for the pictures of taking the head off. I didnt even get the locking tool with my 210. for some reason i posted the wrong question compleatly. what i really wanted to say was that my string is stuck inside of the head and in cant figure how to get the stupid thing open. like in the pictures you gave where the white dots are the new head has black. im guessing that they unlock the same way that the white ones do. the instructions are just nasty and no where on the internet does it have trouble shooting for this head

    To remove the spool you have to push in on the spool and at the same time turn clockwise and the spool will then unlock. Their standard tap head you don't push in.

    Go to this link on spool removal. http://www.echo-usa.com/videos.asp?Vid=UTurn2

    I went out to Echo's website echo-usa.com a found that they have a real cool support/answer section to get help on questions you have. You can get to it from the main page or at this link.


    Hope this helps. :usflag:
