Stihl AutoCut - how do I get the line out?

sweetpea_path(Z8 WA maritime)July 29, 2006

Just bought a Stihl Fs90 and we broke the nylon line on the first cutting try. It's an AutoCut 25-2 mowing head. A bit of nylon is sticking out of one side of the head but nothing on the other side, so we need to open it up to pull it out.....but we can't get the darn thing OPEN! How do you open the head to get the line out? The instruction booklet says for replacing line, etc., "refer to the instructions supplied with the mowing head". Well, we bought ours already assembled and got no separate instructions for the mowing head, just the main manual.

HELP, please!! and many thanks from, Sweetpea & hubbie

I picked up a Stihl 110 with a 25-2 at a garage sale and I can't get the line to advance when I bump the head on the ground. I have looked at the Stihl video and have checked to make sure that I have the line wound in the proper direction, but nothing seems to solve the problem.The 110 is in very good shape starts on the first pull.
Appreciate any suggestions
