Bolens 2 cycle straight shaft trimmer

robarJune 23, 2014

I have a Bolens straight shaft trimmer I purchased at Lowe's several years ago. Is there a replacement trimmer head available? I would like to put on a trimmer head where I just insert the pre-cut strings, instead of winding the line onto the spool. Any advise?

Try Lowes at the link below or short name at the bottom. I have not used the one in the link. I like an aluminum Disc I see the Yardmen and Park Crews use with 4 strings threaded-in that I was told is from Stihl suppliers.

Meanwhile I have drilled holes in my feeding head to accept the largest/strongest line I can find. Visualize drilling 4 equal holes or using the two existing. Pre cutting line and tying knots to allow 12â Etc to extent. It will wear and balance but start close to balanced. The Line Still Breaks If Your Trimming Is Like Mine.ätURL=%3FNtt%3Dstring%2Btrimmer%2Bheads&facetInfo=
