String Trimmer Parts and Accessories

String trimmers are simple tools that can be used to cut back weeds and edge properties; these tools require a variety of items to operate. For example, they need a line, string, spools, eaters, edgers, cultivators, sweepers, grommets, and more. Understanding these trimmer line parts can make it easier for you to cut your grass to the proper length and eliminate weeds.

What type of string trimmer parts are available?

A high-quality string trimmer uses a variety of different parts. These help to produce the power and release the line that you use to cut your grass or weed your garden. Just a few of these parts include the carburetor, the primer bulb, trimmer line, trimmer head, trimmer rack, fuel line, blades, spool, engine, air filter, drive shaft, and harness items. Each performs a simple purpose for cutting your grass to the proper length and destroying weed infestations.

However, many of these items are made up of smaller trimmer parts or can be adjusted with accessories. For example, you can attach a multi-tool garden trimmer brush to shorten and trim your hedges. These string trimmer parts are designed for multiple trimmer models and can help eliminate the grass and weed spread in your yard.

How do these parts affect your string trimmer operation?

When using replacement line for your trimmer, you are expanding its use and making it stronger. New string and better spools can increase your power and the quality of your trimmer line. Other attachments, such as an edger, can replace the use of your line to help keep it strong for a long period.

For most people, replacing trimmer line, string, or parts such as the spools, edgers, and eaters is preferable. Rather than replacing your whole string trimmer, you can buy replacement attachments. This action can add years of life to your trimmer.

How are these parts used?

The many parts of a weed trimmer are used in different ways. For example, the spools help feed the line into the string trimmer and provide it with the string cutting material and parts it needs. The eater is designed to mulch up the problematic areas. String naturally breaks off when it hits a resistance point, saving other components from wear. Replacement parts like these require you to replace the line regularly.

Other attachments, which are not disposable, can be attached and detached from weed eater bases. Pole saws, leaf blowers, plow attachments, and more may be available to attach to some motor bases of weed eaters designed to be detachable.
